Is it fair to compare President Obama to Hitler?

Since his election, Tea-party and other conservative activists have been carrying signs comparing president Obama to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. Is this a fair comparison, or a hyperbolic exaggeration?

 

Yes

Regardless of my feelings on Obama and the feelings of those who make this comparison, to compare him to Hitler seems to make a trifle of the Holocaust.

Not to mention it makes that name grow ever more impotent as an insult, and it makes the people who create the comparison look like idiots.

In a country holding the doctrine of Free Speech, anyone can compare anything to anything. However, in a debate sense, what supposed similarities can be reached by allowing this comparison? Nothing that could hold significant weight, to be certain. The Fairness doesn't matter. The result, however, is pointless.

Obama hasn't killed millions of innocent people, so it would make no sense to say he's like Hitler.

I can understand the Fascist comparisons, but Hitler was more than just Fascist; he was a monster.

Saddam Hussein and Fidel Castro are better to compare to Hitler (in that they're ruthless dictators who have tortured and murdered innocent people).

what about people who say bush killed millions. who's to say obama aint to blame for the troops that are dying now! And what do you know about running a country? you would know if your own counrty was plotting your every move in your existence. americas goevernment and sercret society is running everything in your country and they have killed more than hitler, fidel, and saddam put together your just blind to the facts.

The figure is wrong, it's closer to 100000, actually. Although Bush didn't pull the trigger on each death, he jumped into a political nightmare rashly and these deaths are exacerbated for it.

Obama inherited the problems of the last presidential administration.

And what do you know about running a country? you would know if your own counrty was plotting your every move in your existence. americas goevernment and sercret society is running everything in your country and they have killed more than hitler, fidel, and saddam put together your just blind to the facts.

If your argument is that we cannot know what it is like to run a country, and we cannot know the facts and are ill-equipped to criticise, then it follows that you cannot comment on the subject or criticise either.

Not really. They compare every president to Hitler. Democrats compare the Republican president to Hitler, Republicans compare the Democratic president to Hitler, both sides need to pry their heads out of their asses and obtain some common sense. No president, then, now, or likely in the future, will be the next Hitler.

| Side: No

Hitler was a fascist, which is typically on the far right side of the political spectrum. Obama embraces what can be called socialist policies, which is on the left side of the political spectrum.

Unless he starts a war and begins singling out a group of people and then has them killed, I'd think not, no.

...Also, not that I hate Obama or anything, but he certainly has not helped the USA as much as Hitler helped Germany. Well, until he did the jew extermination thing. Really, if he hadn't have done that and started a big ol' war, things would have been peachy keen for Germany.

Can anybody think of giving a nobel peace prize to Shitler?

If not, then Obama does not deserves to be compared to hitler.

Obama isnt starting a world war or invading countries. President Obama is not putting innocent people in gas chamders or camps. People who say that he is comparable to hitler need to stop and think for a moment. Come on people do not let others think for you, stp and think about how u feel and learn the whole story before you start going off.
