The Obama campaign might want to think twice before focusing Americans’ attention on The Dark Knight Rises. It’s not exactly what they think it is. Mitt Romney resembles Batman far more than Barack Obama, who would raze Wayne Manor to the ground, redistribute the bricks among the criminals destroying the City, pay off all the mob bosses, and shut down Wayne Tower for environmental shortcomings.
There are plenty of other movies Obama can choose to exploit on his campaign’s behalf. He can always go with Magic Mike, since he presumably wants to strip Mitt Romney down to his undies while he gets to sit in the audience crowing. He could go with Savages, an Oliver Stone flick about criminals, albeit not white collar. He could go with Step Up: Revolution, which looks more like Step Up: Occupy.
Or he could just let us watch our movies in peace, rather than trying to pervert their characters and messages to fit his egocentric view of the world. After all, that’s what Batman is really about – going about his business without worrying about getting the credit.
