    The title is a bit misleading. He’s not being “compared” as in the content of his message is similar, which is the implication of the word. Fox’s caller was referencing Obama’s ability to rally a crowd.

    That said, the caller’s point is absurd. Obama is an accomplished public speaker. To suggest that’s similar to Hitler is to say that any accomplished speaker who can excite a crowd is like Hitler. So Hitler’s nemisis, Winston Churchill would also have to be said to be “like Hitler.”

    It would have been just as valid for the caller to say Obama reminds him of Churchill. That he used Hitler suggests the caller doesn’t like Obama, but says nothing more.

    Better to have simply acknowleged that Obama is a great public speaker. I just don’t like what he has to say.
