He certainly seems to be using similar methods of propaganda:
"It is always a simple matter drag the people along, whether it is a
democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a commmunist
dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brough to the
bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they
are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and
exposing the country to danger."

Actually, not Hitler, but Goering...

I saw an Al Gore speech earlier this week pointing out that in a year, the
US has squandered the support of almost all the world.

Nice going, George.
