    You're right: there are many Dem activists, including many on this site, who see politics as a team sport, with Obama as the star quarterback. If you attack Republicans, they will cheer, but if you attack Democrats - especially Obama - they will boo.  This has happened at various times with most of the political cartoonists who publish here: Tomorrow, Wuerker and Bors have all been called racists, trolls, etc and even hide rated for caricatures and commentary about Obama.

    What I like about you is that you have bothered to interact and argue your points, something few artists who publish here do.

    I would say, though, that the "Barry" critique is valid in the sense that the Right Wing has taken ownership of that nickname to use as a derogatory smear. It doesn't matter if that is his actual nickname, calling Obama "Barry" pretty much IDs (or mis-IDs) you as a Winger in society at large, let alone this site.

    I'm tip / reccing this diary because the hide rates are abusive and because you've been so interactive, which should be encouraged.
