He's just trying to say that Bush _is_ like Hitler. And he's entitled to
that opinion. Personally, I think Bush is worse than Hitler, or at least
more sinister. At least everyone _knew_ that Hitler hated Jews. Everyone
_knew_ he was trying to take over the world. Bush is a little more on
the down low, with a little sleight of hand he appears to be chasing
terrorists instead of occupying countries. Oh, and he doesn't hate Jews,
instead he hates Muslims.
