WTF Political Cartoons

2 notes

Now, I could go on about interention v. austerity as an economic policy, and compare and contrast how it has worked in other countries, but I’ve already explained a hundred times how the UK situation already proves that Austerity only makes it worse.
In stead, today let’s talk about consistency in visual metaphors!
If you consider the point of the stabbing metaphor to be things Obama has inflicted on America that have an effect you disagree with, then surely only Obamacare should be there. Unemployment, recession and debt (which are pretty close categories, anyway) surely should be the illness that’s being treated, and the used treatment should be labeled “stimulus”, “obamacare” and (ugh) “SPENDING!!!1”.
Also, the McCoys sure are fond of portraying the president as a bloody killer, aren’t they?
