Who does this sound like?

[He] lambasted Bush for his handling of the Sept. 11 attacks, accused the media of spreading lies about the Iraq war and railed against the United States for its support of Israel. [He] questioned whether the world would be a different place if the money spent on Iraq had been spent to fight poverty.
Ted Kennedy? No. John Kerry? No. Nancy Pelosi? Wrong again...

Try Iranian terrorist-loving homicidal tyrannical Islamic fundamentalist dictator and Hitler-wannabe Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Sounds pretty similar though, huh?

Radar, it's funny how you go off whenever anyone makes a comment using one piece of an article (not the whole) comparing Bush to Hitler, but you jump on the first opportunity to compare the Dem leadership to what's-his-name. It's an awfully big wheel that doesn't turn all the way around...

There are absolutely no relevant connections or comparisons between George Bush and Adolf Hitler.

Ted Kennedy:
Kennedy said a recent report by the Congressional Budget Office showed that only about $2.5 billion of the $4 billion being spent monthly on the war can be accounted for by the Bush administration.

"My belief is this money is being shuffled all around to these political leaders in all parts of the world, bribing them to send in troops," he said.

"The eyes of the world were on us and the hearts of the world were with us after September 11th -- until this administration broke that trust."

"How could any President have possibly squandered the enormous goodwill that flowed to America from across the world after September 11th?"

John Kerry:

"After 9/11, in a war on terror, it is exceedingly hard as a challenger to carry the argument that the incumbent president and your country are not doing what's necessary to protect itself. But we are not."

“We’re busy exporting Democracy abroad to Afghanistan and Iraq, which is fine, but what we really need to do is a better job at making our Democracy work right here at home.”

“When Bush had an opportunity to capture or kill bin Laden, he took his focus off of him, outsourced the job to Afghan warlords and bin Laden escaped.”

"He [George Bush] has squandered the goodwill of the world after September 11th, and he has lost the respect and the influence that we need to make our country safe. We are seeing the peril in Iraq everyday."

"After the events of September 11th, we had an opportunity to bring our country and the world together in a legitimate struggle against terrorists. On September 12th, headlines and newspapers abroad declared that, We are all Americans now."

"But through his policy in Iraq, the president squandered that moment and, rather than isolating the terrorists, left America isolated from the world."

Nancy Pelosi:
"I have absolutely no regret about my vote against this war. The same
questions remain. The cost in human lives, the cost to our budget, probably 100 billion. We could have probably brought down that statue for a lot less."
Nancy Pelosi

"We must remain focused on the greatest threat to the security of the United States, the clear and present danger of terrorism. We know what we must do to protect America, but this Administration is failing to meet the challenge."

I consider these and many other quotes by these three to 1)lambast Bush for his handling of the Sept. 11 attacks, 2) question whether Bush lied about the Iraqi war, and 3) question whether our efforts in Iraq should have been redirected to domestic issues. This is exactly what Ahmadinejad also said.

The implication that you're making is that by questioning the Bush administration's handling of the war, Kennedy, Kerry, and Pelosi are just like a "terrorist-loving homicidal tyrannical Islamic fundamentalist dictator". Yes, you're right, all of those are correct quotes, but you can't make a connection between criticizing a president's handling of the war and being a terrorist loving Hitler wannabe.

It's exactly the same thing that Dems have tried to do with Bush v. Hitler. I can find plenty of quotes that will make Bush seem like a fanatical nationalist whose administration is filled with rampant cronyism, inappropriate executive powers, and a complete disregard for the civil liberties of the American people, but that doesn't mean I can compare him to Hitler.

In attempting to compare the Dem leadership to Ahmadinejad, you're as far out in right field as Michael Moore is in left.

Maybe I should restate my intentions. I mean only to point out that both prominant liberal leaders and the crazy Iranian dictator make very similar comments when it comes to critisizing America and the Bush administration. I find that more that interesting. No, John Kerry and Nancy Pelosi and Ted Kennedy are not crazy terrorist dictators. However, it is interesting that they make similar comments. Either they are listening to the same sources or they fell what they are saying will be constructive towards bothe of their goals.

I really would be interested in hearing what quotes and statements that Bush has made that can be compared to Hitler quotes.
