Rumsfeld Likes Chavez to Hitler

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060203/...umsfeld_chavez


Chavez would most likely call The Bush the Admin. The 4th Reich, once he hears this.

A poor choice of headline.

He only said "Chavez was elected just as Hitler was elected". More a comment about democracy I suppose.

such comparisons come up all the time on the floor of Congress -- people from Santorum to Byrd have made them, and in precisely the same way that Rumsfeld did. there's never, ever an innocent, incidental evocation of the man who has come to personify the most extreme case of evil in the 20th century.

it's inappropriate for Congress, and it's inappropriate for Rumsfeld.

Don't you know guys? Only conservatives are allowed to compare their opponents to Hitler. Everyone else is forbidden.

Funny, I though liberals did it as well.


Let me guess - conservatives are meaner about it...

In the 1930's, in Europe, in general it was conservatives, especially those from aristocratic families, that wanted to appease Hitler and in general it was leftists that saw the danger of the Nazis.

But I digress.

And both parties didn't stop Hitler; at least not in any strong fashion. Perhaps the conservatives' appeasement was out of fear? That's no excuse, but I'm just wondering.

Funny, I never denied that. But now that one of Bush's seraphim has made the comparison to Hitler, where's the outrage from conservatives? Why aren't you calling for his resignation?

No, it was not out of fear. Many Germans admired Hitler. As to the conservatives - the ones in power supported him. Hitler would not have won the election in Germany in 1933 if the conservative steel industry which saw a chance for war (=profits) would not have backed him financially.

I agree

Yet, I think it's apparent Rummy has been a massive failure overall.

I like his candor in general, I just think he's been incompetent more oftem than not, it maybe cost lives. Probably did, actually.
