On the eve of Thanksgiving, it is an American tradition that the President of the United States gathers with various friends and colleagues in the rose garden at the White House, and issues an executive order, thereby pardoning a turkey, and thus sparing the lucky bird from the fate of so many millions of other turkeys on Thanksgiving Day. This year, President Obama had the privilege to pardon a turkey. At the time, America’s economy was facing a so-called fiscal cliff. Merging the two stories came naturally to many cartoonists of the day. And so it is that this political cartoon of President Obama forgiving a turkey was created. This image uses the style of line-art and the colors were edited by an open-source computer program. This turkey by Barack Obama caricature was syndicated through the binary options news of November 22, 2012 via OptionsClick, the leading binary options trading platform as well as an original source publisher of editorial business news and key market updates for investors.
