The message of this cartoon that the artist is trying to get across to the reader is that Obama, by bailing out the motor companies and working with Wall Street as some of his biggest campaign supporters, has become a puppet like figure to the mass companies and franchises that are "Wall Street" This cartoon displays Obama as small, insignificant, and helpless. His current dangerous postion accompanied by his pompous "I'm in control" posture creates the effect that he is oblivious to the monster that he's created through his economic stimulus packages and monetary policies. The cartoon isn't a flattering caricature for Obama because it displays him as out of control and worthless. The artist uses a giant as a symbol to emphasize the great influence that the people of Wall Street have over the President. The cartoon supports the Conservative/Republican platform because it sheds light on the stimulus package and the dealings with Wall Street that were not popular with the Right Wing people whatsoever.
