the silliness in this section is getting to the point of offensive, please have a look at what life was like under the nazis or commmunists in say poland and then get back to wittering.

Don't you just love the never-ending comparisons and references to Hitler? For some people, anyone they don't like is another Hitler. They apparently have no clue what kind of an evil monster Hitler was. Annie

and the comparisons to that bit of history from people who clearly have no idea what they're talking about

I completely agree. Hyperbole does seem to be a standard feature of political discussion on the internet. It always has been, at least as far back as the 90s, when I first started using the net. It's probably because it's so easy to post to forums that people just shoot their mouths off without thinking - especially those of lesser intelligence.

If you're talking about comparing Hitler and Obama, I think that the comparison is between their ability to get the people to follow them. They were both very good at making speeches and mesmerizing the masses. They both are/were adapt at telling the people what they want/wanted to hear. They both created scapegoats for the plights of the times. For Hitler it was the Jews and for Obama it's the Bush administration. The political turning point for Hitler came when the Great Depression came to Germany. Another similarity to Obama running for president here when we get hit with a recession. Hitler was above all else an actor and I think that Obama is a fine actor himself. Hitler carefully choreographed his speeches. Obama hardly ever gives a speech without his beloved teleprompter. A lot of his rallies were staged events, as were Hitler's. No way did I buy that at almost every one of Obama's political rallies someone passed out and had to be revived. Talk about acting! lol There are other similarities but I'm not really a history buff so I'll let someone else chime in on it.

charisma is quite important for politicians. now i think it is very unlikey that obama is going to commit genocide so leave the hitler comparisons alone please, it is a bit offensive

ok say whatever you like then. just will point out that comparing obama to hitler doesn't make it look like someone knows what they're talking about
