I have seen this for a while, and even though I don't want to make any Hitler comparisons because you then lose the argument (according to "Godwins Law") but I admit I found it fascinating from a "wow, that's quite a coincidence" perspective in the same way the Lincoln and Kennedy assassinations have odd similarities:

You should have seen the look in my father’s eyes when before the 2008 election I showed him the “Obama Sing for Change” video.

He saw Hitler youth up close near Munich during WWII. He spent the Winter near Munich. Arrived there aboot 3 weeks after Dachau was liberated.

It left an indelible impression on him. He is 87 on the 28th but still pretty sharp.

History does repeat itself, and there are people who will perpetrate evil, with the hope that the ignorant masses won't notice.

So, what do you make of the slogan Obama's campaign is using to deceive the masses, just like was used decades ago, that slogan being "Forward".

When comparisons are demanded, we have to make them.

In my opinion, both serve the father-of-lies.
