Emotional- By putting such a strong quote in order to mock the President, the creator of this chart is clearly putting pathos behind it. The look of distress in the Presidents picture as well creates a feeling of worry and fear.
Dispursed vs. Layered- This chart displays its information by representing separately in a line graph the two different projected outlooks on our National Debt from January 2009 and March 2009. Lines are clearly shown and represented and both axis are labeled correctly with proper increments.
Metaphor- The chart want to clearly poke at the democrats with this chart by not just making it a simple chart given with numbers and lines- but with the edition of Obama's picture and quotations he is creating a metaphor that the democrats are going to destroy the country with their spending.
