Comic: Politics (and budgets)

A man, a plan, an SUV, the Oval Office

The Romney-Ryan ticket has suffered not only from the presidential candidate's lack of empathy and sometimes robotic demeanor, but also from a series of gaffes and a lack of (publicly articulated) ideas.

Coming into the final days before the election, Mitt Romney has tightened the race up, but is still looking for that silver bullet that will give him the win.

At the 11th hour, can Mitt and Paul save the day with a superhero combination of ideas that address American's economic concerns?

Yes, they can. Through federal subsidization of Chevy Suburban purchases, the GOP ticket solves not only the Romney's Detroit problem ("Let 'em burn!"), but also makes a big commitment to Big Oil, always a bulwark of the Republican Party.

Roberto De Vido writes cartoons and comics about politics, sports (and life) from a small fishing and farming village an hour southwest of Tokyo.
