Humphrey Bogart with his gun collection.
When Chris Matthews compared President Obama to Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca on his Thursday show after the President’s latest gun speech, he couldn’t even get his analogy straight. Matthews said this:
“Let me start tonight with this: You know that scene in Casablanca when the French police captain shoots the Nazi, Major Strasser, and Humphrey Bogart does the right thing by Ingrid Bergman, and the anti-Nazi hero Victor Lazlo says “Welcome back to the fight, Rick.” Well, I felt that way today watching President Obama get back to the front in the historic battle for gun safety.”
The French police captain (played by Claude Raines) isn’t the one who shoots Major Strasser. It is Bogart’s character, Rick Blaine, who Matthews is comparing the president to, who shoots the evil Nazi, Major Strasser. Not a very good analogy to use for gun control.

He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own."~~ French actor~~Alain Delon
