Newsweek Turns the Reelected Obama Into 'The General'


Thursday, November 8, 2012


Editor-in-chief (since Nov. 2010) Tina Brown and her staff used Newsweek's final post-election print cover (Nov. 19) to portray President Obama's "conquest" with him in early-19th-century general's garb reminiscent of Napoleon (without the hat) and Andrew Jackson. Each, for a while, was a Master of the Game.  Will Obama follow their footsteps...without a "Waterloo"?

Also, one-time Republican operative David Frum writes GOP: You're Old, You're White, You're History!  Veteran Newsweek watchers saw this once before--after the Barry Goldwater debacle in 1964 (Nov. 16 issue), when the late cartoonist Bill Maudlin put a sickly elephant on the cover. 

In Frum's view, was that 48 years premature?
