Rush Limbaugh compared President Obama to Hitler on his Thursday radio show.

Limbaugh was in the middle of lambasting Obama for his speech on Afghanistan, in which the President announced he will withdraw 33,000 troops from the country by the summer of 2012.

"What better way to fire up the Democrat base than to announce you intend to lose the war in Afghanistan?" he said. "What do General Petraeus and Gates, the Defense Secretary, what do they know? ... you know, Hitler's generals tried to argue with him too."

Limbaugh has compared Obama to Hitler before. In 2009, he said, "Adolf Hitler, like Barack Obama, ruled by dictate."
