That's not the only difference. Lenin was much hotter.

You don't have to compare to learn from history.

Yes, well, look at this:

Clinton & Hitler Compared

and this:

In fact I found analogies starting with President Hoover to our current U.S. President George W. Bush.

Seems to be a popular epithet to throw around

We still have two years to go in Obama's term. We may find by the end of year 4 that the comparison to Mao would have been most accurate.

Sounds like some of the posters here believe that Obama will eventually begin ordering the extermination of certain group of people. If they truly believe this, I feel sorry for them. They should probably seek professional help.
