The "Hitler" Who Would Oppose Hitler...

"...As veterans, you have seen this kind of enemy before. They are successors to fascists, to Nazis, to communists and other totalitarians of the 20th century. And history shows what the outcome will be. This war will be difficult, this war will be long, and this war will end in the defeat of the terrorists and totalitarians and a victory for the cause of freedom and liberty,..."

Maybe I'm missing something, but this typical statement by President Bush (made recently at the American Legion national convention) just doesn't sound like Hitler to me. As a matter of fact, I'm going to guess that had Bush been president in 1939 he would have opposed Hitler just as he's opposing Islamo-fascism now -- while many intellectuals and "artists" would remind us of totalitarianism's "good points" and our own moral shortcomings (indeed, that actually happend in the 1930's, as it is happening now).

Some things never change.
