Ramirez, Beeler on Obama’s class warfare

posted at 1:20 pm on January 26, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Sometimes, it doesn’t even really take a breaking-news hook to appreciate Michael Ramirez.  The two-time Pultizer Prize winning editorial cartoonist sums up Barack Obama’s class warfare strategy perfectly in one image from the day before Obama’s State of the Union speech (via Power Line):

Nate Beeler followed up yesterday on the hypocrisy of Obama’s message and the obvious campaigning of the SOTU speech:

So what was the real message from Obama’s speech and campaign strategy?  I’d like to think that this picture from an Iowa factory sums it up even better:

I’m sure we can offer a better caption than that.

Also, be sure to check out Ramirez’ terrific collection of his works: Everyone Has the Right to My Opinion, which covers the entire breadth of Ramirez’ career, and it gives fascinating look at political history.  Read my review here, and watch my interviews with Ramirez here and here.  And don’t forget to check out the entire Investors.com site, which has now incorporated all of the former IBD Editorials, while individual investors still exist.  Be sure to check out Nate’s blog for more of his excellent work, featured at the indispensable Examiner.
