This Week’s Cartoon: “The Mental Stimulus Plan”

A few Obama supporters on Daily Kos took umbrage at this one. Personally, I think it’s a pretty mild warning about the dangers of not having a jobs plan. So what if it’s not politically feasible right now? He could at least try to make the case, instead of gratuitously invoking Republican falsehoods about the economy (see Krugman’s posts on this tendency here and here). It’s time to play offense at least rhetorically, Republican obstructionism be damned.
