Political Cartoon

Colton Diehm


This cartoon is from the 2008-2014 era. This cartoon is about the problem to try to avoid default but the elephant is representing the Republican Party and the elephant is trying to blame Obama for the problem. The author is trying to say that the problems that are running throughout our government is ripping them and the republicans are blaming President Obama for the problem. Exaggeration is used because there isn't really a rip through our government.
