This article does a disservice to Napoleon. He was extraordinarily talented, and possibly the greatest military leader of all time. To rise to power in France after beginning as a somewhat impoverished Corsican is remarkable. The author is correct to compare Obama to talentless media superstars, but not Napoleon. Obama is an affirmative action hack who is elevated to virtual godhood by a fawning media. Napoleon only rose to become a media superstar because of his achievements; rather the opposite of Obama.

Napoleon certainly utilized propaganda, but no more than the other European crowned heads. and he had to fight some vicious negative propaganda from his enemies.

And although certainly incorrect Napoleon is now remembered by most as a nutcase. We will see how 0bamugabe fares after he is no long the soup de jour of the MSM.
