Well, I’m sorry he’s sorry. Obama is definitely a Marxist.

Boy did this guy change his tune in a hurry! Maybe he got a visit from Obama’s gestapo.

OK ... I'll make up for it.

Barak Hussein Soetoro Whatever 0bama is worse than Hitler.

Hitler's victims at least had the theoretical possibility of resisting or fleeing. The babies that 0bama wants killed can't even do that.

There is a big difference between Obama and Hitler. Hitler killed 6 million jews in gas chambers, Obama will just let Iran do his dirty work.

DAMMIT WHY ARE OUR GUYS ALWAYS APOLOGIZING!?!?

I know I’m going CAPS-crazy...but this is ridiculous. As you said, Bush has been called a murderer, a fascist, a Hitler, a Nazi— STOP APOLOGIZING!!!

Exactly. I am sick that so many people who recognise the truth, are so afraid to stand on it! Why do they give up and give in? Stick with the truth, when it is borne out, you will be a hero.

Lenin would have been more accurate. Obama might have even taken it as a complement.

And as soon as he gets his civilian army (brownshirts) in place, then we can very easily compare him to Hitler.

STICK TO YOUR GUNS! Well either he wussed out, or the Obama-troopers made some painful threats. One cannot know with these thugs. While Hitler comparisons are mostly lame, the Marxist tag was 100% correct!

Please quit giving Hitler a pass on killing 5.5 million gentiles. He was quite proud of all the "untermenschen" that he wiped out ... he should get full credit.

Yeah the dummy, he should have said Muslim Marxist. BO is very touchy about getting little details right.

That is not a gestapo. It is a domestic security force. Please use the correct title. Of course, they use gestapo manuals and tactics but please let us be correct.

Then I will take up the slack. Obama is a Marxist and is on the same path to evil as trod Hitler.

It’s possible they had something on him. Now, I know O’s not in office yet but I’m sure W will give him anything he needs. He called Clinton and asked his advice on how to greet Obama. Maybe he got some FBI files from Clinton and gave them to O.

Too bad someone won’t report the threats. It would at least get people thinking and if something bad happened, maybe the idiots in this country would put two and two together. Republican congressmen are the most spineless bunch I’ve ever seen.

Tell me where the congressman was wrong. Calling Hitler is extreme and not necessary. The cult of personality and the policies do represent similar to Hitler and other dictators. It is something we have not seen here in America. The closest might have been FDR, but that was far different situation.

Stick with the truth, when it is borne out, you will be a hero.

Remember when Dick Armey called Barney Frank "Barney Fag"? He apologized profusely. I loved every apology because each apology offered another mention of "Barney Fag".

This could be a trick; say something outrageous, get you name in the paper, then apologize to make sure the story has legs. Maybe this is not so conspiratorial but don't think for a minute politicians don't know how to play games.

Why be sorry
obama has used the youth along with his followers to have them brainwashed.
obama uses a emblem for himself
obama was very friendly with a man who used violence to over throw the govt similar to Hitler infact I would say Ayers is now doing what Hitler did but has been priming obama over these years
obama wants a security group set up independent of the army
obama wants a youth group

many similarities to Hitler and obama to ignore

he should not say sorry at all and why is it that the right have to say sorry but the left does what it wants and says what it wants.
The left is laughing at the republican party because half of them have no balls what so ever

Of course he’s not like Hitler. Hitler didn’t make any bones about anything. He told you he was gonna screw you and he did it. Obama will secretly screw you and won’t even give you the courtesy of a reacharound.

More gutlessness from staunch Republicans.

Damn we conservatives are like Moses and the tribe wandering out in the desert looking for guidance that so far is not there.

Jim Robinson is the closest thing we have for a leader and thank God for FR.

How about comparing him to Stalin, Lenin, Honecker, Ho Chi Minh, Mao, Castro, Chavez? Suddenly, once they’re “chosen”, they become untouchable!

I can't IMAGINE why he would have said such a thing.

It is not like 0

Came out of obscurity suddenly

Rose to the top of his party

Was never vetted by a compliant Media

Wanted a civilian police force

Wanted to disarm the populace

Surrounded himself with thugs

And had rivals fade away..

Or anything like that.

Last I checked, neo-Marxists are Marxists.

Last I checked, the NAZI’s were the “national socialist worker’s party.”

Reader, add it together and you get “anarcho-syndicalism.” Look it up. Wikipedia does just fine (until it gets hacked like the Frank Marshall Davis listing, but Wikipedia has defended itself well, so far).

That complies with the idea of building up the ranks of proletariat workers from union cardign, thru ACORN, thru all these programs that Obama and Emanuel have been talking up.

Remember the black and red colors on election night.

Technically, Obama’s training has been as a MAO-ist, not a Marxist — but that -- at most -- is only a useless technicality...they are the same bird with different color feathers.

The problem about this congressman’s statement is the reference to Hitler — NO ONE buys an argument when Hitler's name is raised, except the leftists, and only amoung themselves.

“TRUTH must be sorry to Obama.” Don’t we get it? Saying sorry will never change a thing about Obama being an idiotic teleprompted narcissistic fascist puppet traitor of communists and terrorists.

If you read Broun’s comments he didn’t liken Obama to Hilter exactly, he expressed fear about where an armed civilian force could lead.

The article reads:
Broun told the AP Monday: “That’s exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany and it’s exactly what the Soviet Union did. When he’s proposing to have a national security force that’s answering to him, that is as strong as the U.S. military, he’s showing me signs of being Marxist.”

“We can’t be lulled into complacency,” Broun added. “You have to remember that Adolf Hitler was elected in a democratic Germany. I’m not comparing him to Adolf Hitler. What I’m saying is there is the potential.”

There was a thread the other day where someone gave Obama’s quote from Columbia which was indeed benign and that indicated it might be paranoid to assume otherwise. I accept the quote but do not trust Obama and as Broun says the potential is there.

I agree. Likening Obama to Hitler would be inaccurate, he's more like Idi Amin or Fidel Castro.

He must have been intimidated by the Barrack Hussein-iacs.
