What film character is Barack Obama?

A thought occurred to me today that President Obama is Hedley Lamarr ( Harvey Korman) from the classic Mel Brooks film, "Blazing Saddles". how many of you remember the following conversation between he and Taggart (Slim Pickens)? 
Hedley Lamarr : My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.
Taggart: God darnit, Mr. Lamarr, you use your tongue prettier than a twenty dollar whore. 
I think, considering our president's opinion of himself and his ability to talk for hours without saying a thing or contridacting himself with the very next sentence, that this is pretty spot-on...but it's just my opinion.
