I'm sorry to point this out, but since you are the third person this week, touting a "conservative" viewpoint, that I have had to explain the concept of the ad hominem fallacy to, I am forced to conclude that the same horrible genetic defect that results in both conservativism and a taste for bottled barbeque sauce also lends itself to an individual not being able to understand this term.
The fact that World Net Daily is a far-right propaganda deposit that has stated its goal to be the spread of ignorance among its readers and hatred against all people to the left of Pinochet
There really are no points to discuss, that's the summation of the article, "Obama = Hitler," promulgated by a known propaganda outlet.
Sorry if that burns your butt-hairs, but the article has no inherent credibility, and that is only reinforced by the site promoting it.

Or, anything in this paragraph(s) you find inaccurate?
Under the Articles of Confederation, the central government of America was very weak – which was a good thing. It was true then, and it's true now: You can have a strong government and a weak people, or a strong people and a weak government – but you cannot have both. Today, we have a draconian, out-of-control government and a very weak people.
Arguably, democracy in this country started to break down in 1787 when the Constitution created a strong federal government. It got worse – much worse – under the fascist policies of Woodrow Wilson's reign from 1912 to 1920. Then, beginning in 1932, FDR's failed socialist policies took away even more individual freedom from American citizens. And the final disintegration of true democracy in the U.S. was catalyzed by the left-wing revolutionaries of the '60s
