Political cartoon crossed line

By February 16, 2011

Your “Obamadoff” editorial page cartoon crossed a line. It is beyond opinion. To equate President Obama with Bernie Madoff, who deliberately swindled hundreds of millions of dollars from gullible victims is repugnant and borders on libel. It’s your right to disagree with him and not to like him ┬ábut to suggest he is running the same scam as Madoff shows, at best, a lack of judgment. My guess is this no-name cartoonist is ┬ácheap and that’s the reason you use him. You’ve certainly cheapened the Enterprise by printing him. It’s made me consider canceling my subscription of 35 years.
