technically Hitler built Germany into arguably the most powerful nation on the planet at the time and the collective forces of the US, Russia, and Britain bombed it into the ground.

So you're saying Obama is bizzaro Hitler?

Incredibly stupid thing to say. Even worse than the Dixie Chicks, although not as bad as Mel Gibson.

Fwiw, Williams is a country singer, not known as a intellectual. But some of the people that compared Bush to Hitler were academics and statesmen, supposedly intelligent people.

exactly, PCLINE25 is quite ignorant and obviously not educated about much in history. (Yes big generalization there but come on, what a stupid statement he made). Also, hank williams jr is an idiot. That is all.

It wasn't a stupid statement really. It was Hitler that caused Germany to be ground up by taking on the world's largest empire (UK), the worlds largest army (Russia), and the worlds biggest economic power (the US) at once. And in the case of Russia and the US, he made the fatal choice to declare war or launch an invasion. Then he completely mismanaged Germany's army so badly that Ike was worried that if the German generals were to succeed in killing Hitler, they might put someone competent in charge and make it tougher for the Allies.

So Hitler did run germany into the ground with incredibly stupid decisions.

Difference is that while the dixie chicks career tanked, Williams will probably boost.

It was across the line when it was said about Bush and it's across the line to say it about Obama... but Panthro is right, he has the right to say it and ESPN has the right to fire him.

Did not really catch the comparison as such. Well people will make their mountains. He probly don't care anyway. He will ever need work. I remember when MNF was a tradition. I miss it a lot since they have taken it off TV. Oh well, least I get to bed early tonight.
