(Newser) – The leader of a prominent Maryland Republican group is comparing President Obama to Adolf Hitler, apparently with a straight face, in a letter on its website, ThinkProgress reports. “Obama and Hitler have a great deal in common in my view,” writes the president of Republican Women of Anne Arundel County. “Obama and Hitler use the ‘blitzkrieg’ method to overwhelm their enemies. FAST, CARPET BOMBING intent on destruction.”

“Hitler’s blitzkrieg bombing destroyed many European cities—quickly and effectively. Obama is systematically destroying the American economy and with it AMERICA. First the banking/investment industry, next private enterprise (GM and Chrysler) and now HEALTH CARE,” the letter said. “We too CAN fight back. Contact everyone you know. Start a blitzkrieg of our own.”
