Newest Republican Stupidity

No someone else hasn't had an affair. A woman by the name of Joyce Thomann of Republican Women of Anne Arundel County has equated Obama to Hitler.Yes, Obama to Hitler. Here's the letter:

Dear Friends: Obama and Hitler have a great deal in common in my view. Obama and Hitler use the "blitzkrieg" method to overwhelm their enemies. FAST, CARPET BOMBING intent on destruction. Hitler's blitzkrieg bombing destroyed many European cities - quickly and effectively. Obama is systematically destroying the American economy and with it AMERICA. First the banking/investment industry, next private enterprise (GM and Chrysler) and now HEALTH CARE.

We too CAN fight back. Contact everyone you know. Start a blitzkrieg of our own. Shut down the Capitol switchboards and the White House switchboards! Say NO to the Obamination of Obama Care!

Here's the site to go to and the incredibly lame excuse they use. The board of directors never saw the article.

Then there is an even more unbelievable defense from this women's husband:

"It wasn't meant in the way people are taking it."

Thomann conceded that "maybe she wasn't as artful as she could have been," referring to his wife's comments, but said he and his wife view Obama's push of what they deem socialist programs similar to the way Adolf Hitler spread the Nazi ideals in Germany.

"The methods that [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi and [President] Obama are using to get the socialist view point across, is similar to what Hitler did. And the German people regretted it. I just happen to be up on it. I happen to be a history teacher."

Maybe she wasn't as artful. You have got to be kidding me. People are taking it out of context! How is there any other context for people to take away from this statement. Instead of defending it they should be apologising for what was said.

What alternate parallel universe do these people live in. Oh that's right they're Republicans.
