This isn't the first time Republicans have compared Obama to a Nazi
Barack Obama has fired back at the John McCain-approved attack by George Bush equating the Democratic presidential nominee with a Nazi sympathizer.
"If George Bush and John McCain want to have a debate about protecting the United States of America, that is a debate I am happy to have any time, any place, and that is a debate that I will win, because George Bush and John McCain have a lot to answer for."
He goes on to expose McCain as a hypocrite, pointing out that he had advocated talking to Hamas.
I follow the maxim that it's a foolish man who compares his political opponents to Hitler. But this isn't the first time Republicans have made this bogus argument about Obama:
Fox News Radio host Tom Sullivan took a call from a listener who stated that when listening to Barack Obama speak, "it harkens back to when I was younger and I used to watch those deals with Hitler, how he would excite the crowd and they'd come to their feet and scream and yell." Sullivan then played a "side-by-side comparison" of a Hitler speech and an Obama speech.
