Is the President a Homer?

The following scene from The Simpsons’ "E-I-E-I (Annoyed Grunt)," Season 11, Episode 5, pretty much sums up, by way of analogy, the president’s recent comments, including the ironic exchange with CodePink founder Medea Benjamin, about putting an end to Tomacco--er, Gitmo:

Lisa: You're about to launch a terrible evil on the world. You've got to destroy this plant!
Homer: I know, honey. But what can I do as an individual? I wouldn't know where to begin.
Lisa: Just burn that plant right now and end this madness.
Homer: I wish I could make a difference, Lisa, but I'm just one man.
Lisa: Grrrr!
Homer: I agree, but how?
