Hitler wasn't a Socialist at all, he was a Fascist. They are completely different concepts. Fact is, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (AKA Russia) fought against Hitler and Nazi Germany in World War II.
If you see anyone that confuses these terms, you can safely assume they are a complete moron that has absolutely no clue what they are talking about. These kinds of terms belong to Glenn Beck, people often parrot Glenn Beck when talking trash about Obama. More often than not Glenn Beck has absolutely no clue what he is babbling about.
If I were to define Obama by a term, it would be Oligarch. Because the things he has done, have strengthened the roll of large corporations in American politics.

We socialists don't consider Hitler a socialist. His 'socialist' policies weren't very socialist at all. Unless you can name one that I've missed.
