In the case of the latter, he captured the person responsible for the 2012 attack on our consulate—a rather laughable attempt to make us forget that he'd either been unwilling or unable to capture the terrorist mastermind.

Admitted felon Dinesh D'Souza offered up some deep thoughts on President Obama's feelings about America.
Fox News host Megyn Kelly couldn't help but laugh when conservative author Dinesh D'Souza compared the United States to a child molester on her show Monday night. [...]
"Well, look at it this way. It's not that Obama hates America. It's not that he's trying to take America down," D'Souza explained. "It's almost like this. If I was in a family and I believed my dad was some kind of a serial killer or child molester, I would still love him. He would still be part of my family, but I'd do everything I could to prevent him from doing these evil actions. I would think that would be not only good for the world, but good for my dad. So with Obama, he believes that he's doing the world a favor and America a favor by controlling this rogue elephant that is the United States."
"So America is the child molester in this scenario?" Kelly chuckled. "Just trying to follow, Dinesh. I think we may have jumped off the deep end."
Meanwhile, in other unfortunate analogies...
Man of God Ralph Reed compared gay marriage to slavery, while claiming he wasn't.
The founder of the Faith and Freedom Coalition — whose annual conference has become a rite of passage for likely Republican presidential contenders — compared the conservative opposition to same-sex marriage to slavery on Friday. [...]
In a speech during a breakout session at the group's "Road to Majority" conference in Washington, D.C., Ralph Reed explained that the Supreme Court's ruling in Dred Scott, which resolved that slaves were the property of their owners even if they traveled to free states, was instructive for advocates fighting against marriage equality.
"The battle looked like it was lost, but it really wasn't," Reed said. "And that's kind of like where we are right now. Anybody heard lately that we're losing the marriage issue? Anybody heard that argument? You notice some similarities? I'm not comparing slavery to same-sex marriage, OK? I'm just pointing out that when you have these fights, what's interesting is that if you look at same-sex marriage, it's now legal in 17 states."
And, in related news...
"Nothing threatens your personal liberty more than the notion that you would bow your knee to the court system apart from the ultimate rule of the Constitution," he opined. "And all of the branches of government, all of which are not there to tell you what you cannot do, but to guarantee the freedoms that you are always empowered to have."
"We are under an obligation to obey God and the law, and if necessary, to defy an institution that is out of control," the former Arkansas governor continued.
The derp is strong with this one.
