Obama as Napoleon

A recent cover of Newsweek seems to paint a Napoleonic image of the newly re-elected President Obama.

I missed the November 19th cover when it first appeared but when I did see it, it immediately struck me as a Napoleonic image. A quick check shows others saw it the same including a writer at Left-leaning media Huffington Post. At the Atlanta Black Star, writer Nick Chiles not only comments on the Napoleonic image, but also describes Mr. Obama as being occupied "with the running of the globe."

I find it odd the Left hails Obama as its rising Napoleon. Do these cheerleaders not realize Napoleon seized power in France and installed himself as emperor? Is this the direction the Left sees Obama taking in America?
