March 2010: By early 2010, after a year in office, both Democrats and Republicans were characterizing the dynamic-seeming Obama's first year as a "Do Nothing" Presidency. His only (dubious) accomplishment was that he had won the Nobel Peace Prize - apparently for continuing G.W. Bush's 2 wars! Well, all that was about to change. Obama unloaded on Congress a new comprehensive Health Care Bill that was about the size of the Bible (Old and New Testaments, including the Apocrypha)! What did it say? Nobody seemed to know (again, just like the Bible). House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told Congress that they had to pass it first, and then we'd all find out what it would do! Not surprisingly, this made sense to our elected representatives. So they passed it and President Obama signed it into law . . .

I followed up in February 2010 with a trio of collaborations based on ideas from Lonnie Mussell. Like Fred Rodriguez, Lonnie is a Tea Partier from Georgia, and like Fred, Lonnie is in the construction business. (With the never-ending depressed state of the housing and construction sector, I guess it's no wonder that the Tea Party ranks would swell with people from the building trades.)
The year 2010 began and ended with collaborations. For starters, in January, I produced this cartoon lampooning Obama's free spending ways from an idea from Fred Rodriguez of Georgia.
