Not Hitler, Really

No, I don’t think George W. Bush is Hitler. I mean, he’s not all that bent on military domination of the world…er…OK let me start again. He’s not committing genocide, gassing Jews and things of that sort. He’s not pure evil, mostly just stupid. However, who does this remind you of:

Friends of his from Texas were shocked recently to find him nearly wild-eyed, thumping himself on the chest three times while he repeated “I am the president!” He also made it clear he was setting Iraq up so his successor could not get out of “our country’s destiny.”

Or this:

…some big money players up from Texas recently paid a visit to their friend in the White House. The story goes that they got out exactly one question, and the rest of the meeting consisted of The President in an extended whine, a rant, actually, about no one understands him, the critics are all messed up, if only people would see what he’s doing things would be OK…etc., etc.

This is called a “bunker mentality” and it’s not attractive when a friend does it. When the friend is the President of the United States, it can be downright dangerous. Apparently the Texas friends were suitably appalled, hence the story now in circulation.

But really, he’s not Hitler so stop saying that!
