When Bush would go on regular vacations to Crawford, Texas in between irregular appearances at the White House, many said that while US forces in Iraq died, most Americans were really oblivious of the fact that we were fighting two wars on borrowed money simultaneously and that was why Bush and company could get away with what he had done. Recently, the national malaise regarding our international responsibilities was again in sharp focus when a couple of two-bit party crashers to the White House and domestic disturbances in the Tiger Woods household got more press than the fact that we are committing 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan. I would never have thought to see this cartoon in a leading newspaper in the age of Obama, but it was printed in the Times just this weekend...

From here.
