I am appalled at the cartoon that you featured in the Sunday edition of the Sun Journal. The cartoonist created a picture of President Obama speaking about small business in America, utilizing the campaign theme of Mitt Romney quoting Obama out of context regarding small business.
The important framing reference of how the infrastructure around businesses, from the highways to fire and police and public education, which are taxpayer-financed, contributed to their success was not mentioned.
That goes along with the right-wing theme that Obama is not a real American; that he is, somehow, not one of us.
It is bad enough that we have to have this in overt political ads, but when it appears in a political cartoon in our local paper passing along misinformation it gives me pause.
