Every once in a while, we cartoonists find a happy accidental convergence that makes for a fun cartoon. I came up with Romney’s line first, and the other two just fell into place. The historical irony here is that Al Gore never actually claimed to have invented the internet. He rightly took credit for his role in the Senate in establishing the governmental groundwork that allowed the internet to flourish; this got twisted by his opponents into the exaggerated claim that he was solely responsible. Mitt Romney, on the other hand, DID put into place the Massachusetts health care reform that was the basis for Obama’s health care plan.
