Bush and Hitler? Oh come on. There are really no fair comparisons, right??The only minor similiarities I see are that both were leaders of very powerful countries and both were unafraid to attack another country preemptively resulting in deaths of innocent people. Both used patriotism and fear as political tools and both exploited a major disaster. Sure, those facts are not in dispute. But Bush was nothing like Hitler. People have been comparing Bush to Hitler, however, since after 9/11 when the Patriot Act number I started to remove American’s constitutional rights.
Bush is unlike Hitler in that he is not bent on extermination of a race or type of people, just bent on money and power under the guise of “protecting” people.
So, how about comparing Bush to Jesus? Based only on his actions is Bush more like Jesus or Hitler? Who would Jesus bomb? Should a teacher who compares Bush to Jesus be suspended?

The students left class for about an hour and lined the streets near the school Thursday morning. Many students said they were frustrated and angry about how Bennish had been criticized on talk radio.
“I think he inspires so many students and he’s a great teacher,” one student said during the rally. – MORE
