      Obama hasn't killed anyone in a duel. In fact, I doubt Obama knows how to use a firearm properly...

        Hal,

        If we can see past the skin color, historically there really isn't a difference

            Jackson was a war hero. Both against the British and the Creek.

              Yep... Jackson was actually competent at something...

                There certainly are a lot of psychological similarities: pathological narcissism, megalomania, delusions of grandeur, over inflated senses of self-importance, thin skinned...
                Both viewed the Constitution as an obstacle and were antithetical to republicanism.

                The main differences were the fact that Jackson actually had functional experience and competence in something useful, wasn't a moron, wasn't a Marxist ideologue and probably didn't throw a baseball like a girl.

                  Yes, there is a major difference. Whatever his faults, Jackson was a man and acted like one. One specific incident clearly spells this out while he was in office. South Carolina threatened secession and Jackson told them if they tried it he would personally lead an army there to quell the rebellion.

                  South Carolina backed off.

                  Obama and his staff and advisors are nothing but 'waiting gentlewomen' to coin an old phrase. None have the requisite character to either lead or command.

                  Sincerely,
                  M
                  We are not now that strength which in old days
                  Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
                  Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
                  To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

                      I didn't see that in the OP...

                        Both very interesting men, both not afraid to take on enemies of the USA.

                        One difference is that Jackson served as CIC during the 19th century, while Obama is serving as CIC now, in the 21st century.

                          I've always found it ironic when Democrats talk about how they're the "Party of Jackson." He'd be disgusted to see what his party's become and with Obama personally.

                            He'd probably shoot it's leadership...

                            Joke aside, Jackson was very much against central government and big government. He was also ardently against deficit spending by government. Basically, he stood for everything the Democrat party today wants far more of.

                              Which "...enemies of the USA." has Obama not been afraid to take on? From what I see of his record on that he is a coward when it comes to dealing with enemies of the US.
