Liberal blogger calls Romney 'Hitler' because of Swiss bank account, Obama press secretary chimes in; Update: The ol' 'just kidding' excuse

Liberal blogger Matt Yglesias says Romney is comparable to Hitler because of this article disclosing the former Nazi leader’s Swiss bank account. Is there no end to how far leftists will reach to manufacture a talking point?

Obama for America press secretary Ben LaBolt got chatty with Yglesias about evil Romney. Apparently, that is now part of the official campaign.


Yglesias claims he made a funny, but conservatives just didn’t get it.

    Know who also didn’t speak Austrian? Hitler
    Know who also gave a political speech in Berlin? Hitler
    Know who also wrote a memoir before he had ever done anything noteworthy? Hitler

    Just raising questions, Ben and Matt.

      Know who else vowed to fundamentally change his adopted country?
      Know who else was noted for his oratory skills?
      Know who else didn’t disguise his disgust with a sizeable portion of the population?
      The Obama camp should know better. Then again, if they did they wouldn’t be Obama supporters.

      And Obama wrote TWO, mind you. Hitler only wrote one.

    Seems to me that when your top money guy and policy influencer is a jew who spent a good portion of WWII helping the Germans to round up other jews and send them to the gas chamber, comparing the other side to Hitler is a bit more of a risk than you might want to take. But then again, I’m a conservative, so I think differently than liberals simply by using my ability to think.

    Obama campaigned for cash in Switzerland.

    Gee I remember Hank Williams Jr using this analogy and he was FIRED from
    ESPN /Monday Night Football and was tried and convicted on the state run news on a daily basis!

    Obama accuses Romney of having a Swiss bank account as if that’s bad. So why is he trying to open one himself by doing a fundraiser in Switzerland?

    I love that they claim it is a joke when they are caught.
