Letter: Ramirez crossed line with editorial cartoon

Ramirez crossed line with editorial cartoon

In my opinion, the Michael Ramirez political “cartoon” published in the News on March 29 was disrespectful of the office of the president, totally contrary to the real facts and just plain despicable. It shows President Obama standing on a pile of ISIS victims, while proclaiming his legacy to be normalizing relations with Cuba.

Would Ramirez have the guts to show President George W. Bush standing on a pile of American military bodies proclaiming “mission accomplished”? I think not.

Incidentally, if he has a bias toward Cuba, he could be more civil in his commentary.
