Editorial cartoon innaccurate on Obama speech


I am disappointed in both the Current Editorial Staff and Tim Campbell, cartoonist, for the cartoon published July 24, 2012.  It is not only a misrepresentation of President Obama’s remarks, but fails to rebut a falsehood currently being pushed by candidate Romney.  I don’t know if it is Campbell’s political leanings or his political ignorance that prompted such misleading cartoon message.  If Campbell actually listened to Obama’s speech, he would have known the President was emphasizing American Excellence for providing infrastructure resources that have been built by many American entrepreneurs.  These are the people who previously built the electric power grid, the interstate highways, the newspapers and the other resources which created the environment for ambitious business innovators to build their particular business.  Obama was emphasizing that it takes the unique American free enterprise environment to create the opportunities that the business builders need to succeed.  Campbell did not and could not publish that cartoon on his own.  The hard working guys (Brian Kelly & Steve Greenburg) who built Current Publishing, LLC created the newspaper that gave Campbell his outlet to get it published.  That, in fact, was Obama’s message.
