10 Cartoons that Sum Up the Debt Ceiling Debate

Are you sick of all the debt ceiling talk yet? Tired of hearing about the looming default crisis, and what it’s going to do to our economy, jobs and interest rates? So are the nation’s cartoonists!

For weeks, they’ve been hard at work cranking out cartoons nonstop about the debt crisis we face, so I thought I’d pull ten cartoons that I think really sum up where we are, as depressing as that might be.

1. Caricaturist Taylor Jones thinks it’s about time to start learning a new Pledge of Allegiance…

2. Nate Beeler of the Washington Examiner thinks the media has framed the “lack of compromise” poorly…

3. David Fitzsimmons of the Arizona Star feels he’s found the source of Republican’s unwillingness to compromise…

4. Jimmy Margulies of the Bergen Record thinks Obama is living up to his famous campaign slogan (sort-of)…

5. Pat Bagley of the Salt Lake Tribune seems to have found the villain in this whole debacle…

6. Ottawa Citizen cartoonist Cam Cardow thinks we should just listen to Lincoln…

7. Buffalo News cartoonist Adam Zyglis sees a problem in the Republican fire-fighting methods…

8. Bob Englehart of the Hartford Courant was inspired by Pixar to describe his debt ceiling thoughts…

9. Eric Aille sums up his thoughts about the largest problem our country faces… Audrey 2!

10. This Taylor Jones cartoon of Eric Cantor seems to sum up the debate nicely…
