Why does no one not point out that Hitler and Obama (and Bush as well) are nothing alike. Remember that Hitler ordered the extermination of millions of people, enacted laws limiting the livelihood of Jews (and others) and started WWII. Please inform me of some similarities.
Someone asked for 4 good things the president had done:
1. Health care reform: Beginning change in a system is hardly bad, much better than doing nothing.
2. Working towards changing "don't ask, don't tell"
3: Allow Cubans to visit Cuba
4. Fair Pay Act of 2009
5. Decreasing the amount of nuclear weapons between U.S. and Russia
Can someone list 4 of the impeachable offenses committed by President Obama. I can understand people being upset about bailouts (which in our current economic situation, were first done by President Bush). I can understand people being upset about Afghanistan. Are the people who are calling for Obama's impeachment that same who were calling for Bush's?
I think there are a small amount of people, on this message board and others, who are posting and re-posting to create the illusion of mass dissent. It is effective and, of course, adds to the problem of division in this country in which are political leaders get less than what they should be getting done.

John must have a short memory...liberals were calling Bush every name in the book for the war in Iraq, and mosty observers consider it won. Healthcare reform? Please. Who, iun their right mind thinks the government can spend us out of any crisis? If I was an employer I would headed for the nearest off-shore location I could find to avoid the extreme costs of this 'reform.' Before you ask, you do the math that every source quoted. New taxes...insurance for everybody. Who would pay it? I have to buy mine, why should others not? I live on a modest income and it is hard. But is more government the answer...on this one issue, not every conceivable issue. And don't ask, don't tell? Why change anything for 1-3% of the population? Simply to be PC. It is absurd.There are probably more midgets, uh, vertically chaleenged people (there, I feel so much better about myself...) I have a friend who is a midget. He blames Bush for his midget-ness....

If only. Hitler supervised the successful German
turn-around following on the very depressed early 30s.

His foreign policy on the other hand was not so successful -- in the long run.

So: come to look at the record (as opposed to hormonal rants), Hitler an Obama show just the opposite one fro the other in terms of achievement.

Lots of things Obama's got wrong; lots of reasons for taking issue with his administration.

But, like Hitler, he ain't

Come on, if you're going to depict Obama as a dictator, at least pick the right ideology. Hitler was a right wing dictator, as contrasted with Stalin, a left wing dictator (hence why the Nazis and Communists were such bitter foes).
Hitler was NOT rightwing. Right wing is less government, Hitlers own public adviser said there was very little difference between nazism and socialism. Communists and socialists were very involved with Hitler and his troops. The slogan 1st brown (Nazism) then red (socialism) was a Nazi slogan.

I appreciate all the responses, but I still see no comparison of the characters of Bush and Obama with Adolf Hitler. I don't care what your opinion is about either Bush or Obama. Neither man has done anything close to planning the mass extermination of an entire race! Explain to me if I am missing something. People posting here are suggesting that Hitler was a better leader than President Obama. I find it incredible to believe anyone on this message board, aside from a neo-Nazi, would actually prefer living under the dictatorship of Adolf Hitler than under our current situation under President Obama. I don't care if you hate all of President Obama's or President Bush's policies, but neither has set up concentration camps murdering millions of people. That is what the name Hitler is widely known for. If Obama is a "socialist," as so many call him, compare him to some current European or Latin American leader. Of course that doesn't get the reaction that the Hitler comparison achieves since no one hardly knows the names of other world leaders! Can we agree that the Hitler comparison is an extremely poor one in this case?

this board is hardly big enuff to list all the UnAmerican things Obummer has done, and its all been said for the last 2 yrs, before he was even elected i sniffed him out for the lying cheat he is!
I do not like this Uncle Sam, I do not like his health care scam. I do not like these dirty crooks, or how they lie and cook the books. I do not like when Congress steals, I do not like their secret deals. I do not like this speaker Nan , I do not like this 'YES WE CAN'. I do not like this spending spree, I'm smart, I know that nothing's free, I do not like your smug replies, when I complain about your lies. I do not like this kind of hope. I do not like it. nope, nope, nope!

Oh my. Maybe you mean any country you prefer to live in. In freedom loving countries such as America we don't throw people in jail for their thoughts and words. At least not yet but I'm sure your buddy Obama has considered changing that. Obama could lead the Iranian regime and he wouldn't have to change a single one of his ideals.
LMORALES, you may be the biggest dolt on topix today. I'd bet on it.
They are trying to change it by limiting/legislating conservative radio (ie. Limbaugh, beck ect.)

This is the real story. This is about who the masses of asses really elected. Samir is a voter intimidation guy. Obama loves this guy, Samir. As a matter of fact, Obama likes him so much, he let this guy go free. Obama must be just like him at his core to let him go scott free.. This is the same guy that intimidated voters at a voting place in Phila. during Obama's election. A "New Black Panther." Now we all know Obama's true self. Here's how these like minded pieces of crap, these buddies who look out for one another, these "Goombas", think.

Samir: "My job is to educate black people, whether they want to be educated or not. I don’t give a damn what they may think about white people, I hate white people. All of them. Every last iota of a cracker I hate him."
……

Samir: "We didn’t come out here to play. There is to much serious business going on in your black community to be sliding through south street with white, dirty cracker whores on your arms."
……

"What’s a matter with you black man, you got a doomsday with a white woman on your arm. Your enemy can not make you free fool. You want freedom you’re going to have to kill some crackers. You’re going to have to kill their babies."

This is who Obama is protecting, Samir, of the NBPP, the militant black power group who had their voter intimidation case dropped by the Obama Dept of Justice headed by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

--- In a nutshell, I think anybody who got fooled into voting for Obama is stupid. It's hard to argue with that logic.----Unless, of course you want to kill all the little helpless white babies too.

We the people of this country are beyond belief when we are willing to overlook the nonsense that is happening because of our politcal views. It's very easy to pick these people out.They have never fought for this country. They have no requard for the people that have. They are truely cowards.They are stupid with disrespect for people of this country. Even if they have strong views about their parties the message being sent to other countries is dangerous. They are followers with a strong need to be part of something,even if they don't have a clue other than what the so called leaders of the pack of wolves are saying. Their costing we the people of this country tons of money. And some have figured out how to make millions from keeping the flames fanned. Just plain nonsense.
