Speaking Sunday night at a Georgia megachurch, Rick Santorum compared the presidential race to the run-up to World War II.

…America sat from 1940, when France fell, to December of ’41, and did almost nothing.

“Why? Because we’re a hopeful people. We think, ‘Well, you know, he’ll get better. You know, he’s a nice guy. I mean, it won’t be near as bad as what we think. This’ll be okay.’ Oh yeah, maybe he’s not the best guy, and after a while, you found out things about this guy over in Europe, and he’s not so good of a guy after all. But you know what? Why do we need to be involved? We’ll just take care of our own problems. Just get our families off to work and our kids off to school, and we’ll be okay.

…You understand it — you’re here. You wouldn’t be here if you didn’t get it. But what about the rest of America, do they understand what’s happening? Is anybody telling them what’s happening? Is anybody reminding us who we are, what made us great, and what these assaults are all about — to clear the way?”

Santorum’s response when asked if he is comparing Obama to Hitler didn’t do much to ease concerns about the comparison:

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.”

And that makes it okay?
