“I will continue to say what I’ve said before. You hear in this debate, you hear analogies, you hear references to, you see pictures about and depictions of individuals that are truly stunning, and you hear it all the time. People — imagine five years ago somebody comparing health care reform to 9/11. Imagine just a few years ago had somebody walked around with images of Hitler.
Hopefully we can get back to a discussion about the issues that are important in this country that we can do so without being personally disagreeable and set up comparisons to things that were so insidious in our history that anybody in any profession or walk of life would be well advised to compare nothing to those atrocities.”

I’m assuming Mr. Gibbs misspoke, either that or he’s in deep, deep denial about the rhetoric used by the left over much of the last decade. Fortunately, Mary Katherine Ham has pulled together the links necessary bring Mr. Gibbs up to speed.
And for the record I thought fascist/Nazi/Hitler rhetoric was misplaced when left when using it against the Bush Administration and I think it’s just as misplaced today.
