Romney the New Eisenhower?

The quip from President Barack Obama that Mitt Romney's speech at the RNC could have been in black and white on a TV with rabbit ears made me wonder if Obama was somehow thinking about this quote from President Eisenhower:
"All middle-class citizens of education have a common belief that the tendencies toward centralization and paternalism must be halted and reversed," Dwight Eisenhower July 1949
The quote certainly fits today's situation pretty much to a tee. I'm guessing that if Eisenhower's remarks were broadcast that it would have been in black and white.
