Back in the day, when Obama said jump, MSM yelled "How High?!!", or, more typically, when he said grovel, they replied "how low?"

Obama, when running for re-election, whined that he was allegedly bullied b/c of his big ears, from March 10, 2011 CBS News report "Obama: I was bullied for my big ears" with this rather prescient quote:
"'As adults, we all remember what it was like to see kids picked on in the hallways or in the schoolyard,' he said."This quote implies Obama was always a bystander and never bravely intervened to defend victims of bullying, which explains how he runs US foreign policy today. Most lefty cartoonists dutifully laid off our thin skinned POTUS and eschewed graphically teasing him in any way. However, as of late, artists are lampooning his big donkey ears:
#presobama has lost the respect of the media cartoonist.Have you notice cartoons about Pres Obama show him with very big ears.No fear now!

This is good, b/c as Newsweek Evan Thomas points out in Ken Burns recent documentary about the Roosevelts, it's bad for US presidents to have a cult of personality built up around them, at least if they're Republican:
MRC Kyle Drennen points out PBS's anti TR bias in his 9/16/2014 article "PBS Doc: Teddy Roosevelt An 'Imperialist' 'Killer' Who Glorified War" and includes a transcript of above clip:
"THOMAS: He comes back from war and he senses that he is what America wants to be. Out of Roosevelt's self-importance, but also fed by a real adulation, there emerges a kind of cult of Roosevelt. People simply worshiped this guy in a cowboy hat, this easterner who had become a westerner"
I suppose the TR cult of personality to which Evan Thomas referred was illustrated by the Simpsons episode "Bart Stops to Smell the Roosevelts":
Of course, Evan Thomas is the same idiot who thinks Obama is "Sort of god", from Kyle Drennen's June 5, 2009 Newsbusters article "Newsweek’s Evan Thomas: Obama Is ‘Sort of God’"
Thomas elaborated on Obama as God, patronizingly explaining: "He's going to bring all different sides together...Obama is trying to sort of tamper everything down. He doesn't even use the word terror. He uses extremism. He's all about let us reason together...He's the teacher. He is going to say, ‘now, children, stop fighting and quarreling with each other.’ And he has a kind of a moral authority that he – he can – he can do that." In response, Matthews wondered: "If there's a world election between him and Osama Bin Laden, he's running a good campaign." Thomas agreed: "Yes, he is."From The Daily Gouge, Tuesday, August 20th, 2013 article "The Press and Dr. Faustus"
One can only hope the same thing happens to the idol worshiping MSM as happened to the pagan idolaters of Moses' time @1:09:30 "The Ten Commandments"
or cued up to the golden calf scene in the Charlton Heston version:
