CREDIT:

Forbes blogger, apparently unfamiliar with the Democratic Party primary electorate, compared Barack Obama to FDR as a means of insulting him. For that matter, he seems pretty unfamiliar with the broader American electorate as well. I seem to recall no less a figure than George W. Bush feeling the need to try to wrap himself in FDR’s mantle while he tried to dismantle Social Security.
