After years of Bush=Hitler the lefties are all upset about this ad comparing Obama to Ahmadinejad. One other parallel they forgot to mention in the ad is people taking to the streets (Tea Parties). It is true that there is no violent suppression in America but otherwise it adds to the parallels. Hitler got about a 3 second mention in the ad while most of it is about Ahmadinejad and Iran.
Here is some left wing reaction to the video and the titles of the articles:
Daily KOS: New Rightwing Ad Campaign To Suggest Obama is Like Hitler
Right Wing Watch: Obama Worse Than Hitler And Ahmadinejad
Alternet: Right-Wing Group Goes off the Deep End, Plans to Air Obama/ Hitler Ads
Salon - War Room: Conservative group: Obama equals Ahmadinejad
The Raw Story: Group plans to launch ads comparing Obama to Hitler
The Village Voice: Rightwing PAC: Obama = Hitler
All very interesting. Hitler is only mentioned for a few seconds in the video. Does that mean some of these lefties think Ahmadinejad=Hitler? If that is the case why do they advocate making nice with the Iranian leader?
OTOH maybe they are so used to using Bush=Hitler that they just assumed their opposition would focus on that now that the tables are turned.
One thing for sure: none of the lefties refuted the points made by the ad. All of the points about the Obama proposals and actions are true. The parallels may or may not be artistic (political?) license but the list of things Obama plans, is doing, or his administration has suggested is absolutely true.
