Silly comparison

EDITOR: Over-the-top hyperbole is to be expected in an election year. That's the way the game is played today, unfortunately, and there are plenty on both sides of the aisle only too willing to play fast-and-loose with the facts. But when the anti-Obama rhetoric veers into Hitler/Mussolini comparisons, as it did with Vern Henderson's letter ("Unfit for office," Friday), it's just sad and embarrassing. To people around the world living under real (not imaginary) brutal dictatorships, those making the Obama-is-Mussolini insinuations must come across as the biggest cry babies on the planet.
