Obama versus History

This political cartoon attempts to summarize President Obama’s approach to re-election, and his recent admission that he is proud to be called a class warrior:

But I was instantly reminded of an animation from 1948 — and I suspect that the above cartoonist has seen it. I’ve written about it before as it was attacked by leftist academia (and discussed the incorrect accusation of racism here); it is called “Make Mine Freedom” and I like its message:

It is very unfortunate:
(1) that this comparison places President Barack Obama in the role of the disreputable con-man in the 1948 film, enticing Americans to abandon what made this country great, and
(2) that the comparison is, in my opinion, rather supportable.
