    Re: Billboard linking Obama, Hitler draws complaints

    If Hitler got royalties every time his name was used as a comparison to things that people don't like, he'd be the wealthiest dead man in the world. This is so completely absurd, just as it was when Liberals compared Bush to Hitler. The sad thing this time around is that there are actually people on tv *cough* Glenn Beck *cough* who are trying to make these comparisons. Are the fringe lunatics just going to get louder each time with their absurd hyperbole?

    The irony is that's exactly what this particular Tea Party chapter is doing. Praying on the fearful and naive. Same with Glenn Beck. It's unreal, the ignorance of some Tea Partiers. I saw a Tea Party ad that exclaimed "Liberals: We're Coming For You!".

Unfortunately, extremists of all political stripes around the world use extreme rhetoric and comparisons. I was just as disgusted when the Chinese KMT here used images of Hitler and 9/11 and linked them to then-president Chen Shuibien. Simply dispicable in any democratic/representative context.
    ROTFLOL... Well... LOL... did you think the same when they paraded Bush as Hitler for years while our troops were fighting?

    This has to do with his domestic policies, which are socialist oriented, and generally anti-American.

    They could have picked a better third to accompany Obi and Lenin... Karl Marx, Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro would have been better fits. Joschka Fischer, Gregor Gysi or Lothar Bisky would have been apropos too, but nobody would know who the hell they are.

    The poster did what it was intended to do; create discussion, associate Obi with s-Ocialism and this has accomplished on a national level.

    It might get some dunderheads to wake up and ask why would someone create such a poster.

    Jet-b-man:
    The Tea Party wants us to go back to a time when we had Liberty. Freedom. Personal responsiblity. Charity. You know, those ideals espoused by the Founders. We want to destroy Not Mommy Dearest DC, and put the bitch back in the box it should be in. Strong where it should be strong, and weak where is should be weak. This has been reversed in many instances, and if Libs had their way it would be a 180 of what this nation was founded upon. Weak military, weak internationally with an even more massive, intrusive, money sucking government.

    If that scares Libs... well... we understand, but we will help you get off your narcotic dependency on other people's money, and government as a conduit to steal it for you.

    They could have picked a better second or first fiddle to accompany our resident moron in the White House and Lenin. Karl Marx, Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro would have been better fits. Joschka Fischer, Gregor Gysi or Lothar Bisky would have been apropos too, but nobody would know who the hell they are.

    But the poster did what it was intended to do, probably generated far more interest that initially intended. Create discussion, associate Obi with s-Ocialism and this has accomplished on a national level.

    Yes, we know the goal was to draw a false link between President Obama and socialism. Standard conservative tactic these days.

    ROTFLOL... "false link"?!!... this guy has left a vibrant trail of decisions and statements that reveals he clings bitterly to the socialist doctrine he was impregnated with from his youth, from his so-called church leader, and has clung to during his political career.

    "Spread the wealth around" baby, "spread the wealth around"... massive expansion and intrusion of government... I guess that's Milton Friedman or von Mises talking and represents their economic philosophy... ROTFLOL...

    Zero is as fascist and sicker than Hitler. You can look at his desertion in childhood and addiction to drugs and radical ideas when he was debating “friends” in college. Look at his sick pedophile communist (Davis) “mentor” who had his ear and who-knows-what-else when he was a vulnerable teenager.

    In my view, Hitler may have been mentally healthier than zero whose mind is not only twisted, but is clouded by extensive drug use.

    Hitler was much better orator and didn’t need teleprompters.
    All zero’s close friends have advocated eliminating classes of people and we all know that zero would be happy to oblige, if he could get away with it.

    Re: Billboard linking Obama, Hitler draws complaints

    I think people comparing him to Hitler may be refering to pre-vicious Hitler. His run up on allocating the power and setting laws and words to his favor. Noone really even knows if Hitler's plan was truly Hitlers or if he was just a figure head for those with money and power at the time. If there was any truth to comparing Obama and Hitler I think it would only be able to be made if you argue that Hitler was tricked. The lazy emporer being controlled by someone far more evil. I wonder how much of what Obama says are his own words or a think tank's.

    I don't speak for the left, whoever they are, but yes, it is wrong no matter who does it.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
