Mainstream Media (MFM) Attacking Rick Santorum for 'Controversial' Comments

This is why folks don't like reading the "lamestream" press. Non-controversial comments by a conservative candidate become "controversial' when the Democrat-Media-Complex fires up the attack machinery.

See New York Times, "Santorum Defends Remarks on Obama and Government’s Role in Education."

KSLA News in Shreveport claims Santorum's comparing Obama to Hitler, "Santorum’s controversial comments meet criticism," via the radical extremist blog Crooks and Liars, "Santorum Uses Hitler Analogy to Describe Obama."

And here's CNN, "Santorum denies Hitler-Obama comparison" (via Memeorandum):

Rick Santorum on Monday denied he was comparing President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler while using a World War II analogy the previous day.

During a speech at a Georgia church on Sunday, Santorum paralleled the election to America's slow response to the swelling Nazi presence during the late 1930s. He urged his audience to get involved and not sit on the sidelines like "the greatest generation" did for a year and a half while "Europe was under darkness."

 The former Pennsylvania senator described Americans as a "hopeful people," easily susceptible to ignoring a growing problem.

"We think, well, you know, it'll get better. Yeah, he's a nice guy. I mean, it won't be near as bad as what we think. This will be okay. I mean, yeah, maybe he's not the best guy after a while. After a while you find out some things about this guy over in Europe who's not so good of a guy after all, but ya know what, why do we need to be involved? We'll just take care of our own problems," he said.

Asked Monday if he was likening the president to Hitler, he responded, "No, of course not."

He added: "It's a War World II metaphor. It's one I've used a hundred times."

A metaphor.

But progressives see something mentioning WWII and it's "OMG, they're attacking Obama as Hitler!"
