Maryland Republican Group Takes Down Obama/Hitler Comparison

The Republican Women of Anne Arundel County, "one of Maryland's most prominent Republican organizations," recently posted on its website a comparison between President Obama and Adolf Hitler.

RWAAC President Joyce E. Thomann, explained, for those who don't see the similarities:

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. And he is working on grabbing more of the American economy with his environmental extremism!

The suggestion that our president resembled a fascist, genocidal dictator must have offended some people, because Thomann's missive has been taken down. In its place is this note:

"The article put on our web site by Joyce Thomann was done solely by her. Our Board of Directors never saw the article and would never have approved it.We are not in support of Mrs. Thomann's personal thoughts ot [sic] opinions."
