Gibbs - 'Can You Imagine if a Few Years Ago People Had Protested Using Pictures of Hitler?!?'

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs must be suffering from either a bout of amnesia or a bad case of selective memory. He seems to think that no one protested using signs with pictures or references to Hitler before Obama became president. Gibbs asked if people could imagine such a thing happening a few years ago. I do not have to imagine it because I remember it. More 'remembering here.

Video embedded below.

"I will continue to say what I've said before. You hear in this debate, you hear analogies, you hear references to, you see pictures about and depictions of individuals that are truly stunning, and you hear it all the time. People -- imagine five years ago somebody comparing health care reform to 9/11. Imagine just a few years ago had somebody walked around with images of Hitler. Hopefully we can get back to a discussion about the issues that are important in this country that we can do so without being personally disagreeable and set up comparisons to things that were so insidious in our history that anybody in any profession or walk of life would be well advised to compare nothing to those atrocities."
