Obama's Fourth Reich

According to Wikipedia:

The term Nazi is derived from the first two syllables of Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, the official German language name of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (commonly known in English as the Nazi Party). Party members rarely referred to themselves as Nazis, and instead used the official term, Nationalsozialisten (National Socialists). The word mirrors the term Sozi, a common and slightly derogatory term for members of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (Sozialdemokratische Partei Deutschlands).

Hitler objected to Catholicism’s ungrounded and international character – that is, it did not pertain to an exclusive race and national culture. At the same time, and somewhat contradictorily, the Nazis combined elements of Germany’s Lutheran community tradition with its northern European, organic pagan past.

Nazi publications and speeches included anti-capitalist (especially anti-finance capitalist) rhetoric.

Nazism is just the short name for National Socialism. The Nazi ideology opposes capitalism, conservatism, and any 'groups that are deemed repressive of National Socialism. Like Obama, Hitler rose quickly from obscurity into power in the National Socialist Party which promised 'progress' in the name of 'change'. Hitler had no real accomplishments except his charismatic personality. Obama's running mate Joe Biden even remarked that Barack was not experienced enough for the job when they ran against each other in 2004 and added in October 2008 that Obama would be tested because of his youth and inexperience. Even fellow Democrats claim Obama is not ready to be President, very much like those near Hitler who likewise questioned his qualifications.

Will Obama call his administration the 'Fourth Reich'?
