Speaking about health care reform at the Congressional Black Caucus gala Saturday night, President Obama relayed an anecdote from the G-20 Summit, in which an anonymous world leader said he was dumbfounded over the health care debate -- especially the comparisons to Hitler.
"One of the leaders, I won't mention who it was, he comes up to me and ... he says, 'Barack, explain to me this health care debate.' He says, 'We don't understand it. You're trying to make sure everyone has health care and they're putting a Hitler moustache on you. That doesn't make sense to me, explain that to me,'" Obama said. "He didn't understand."
Signs of Obama sporting a Hitler moustache, mostly from supporters of fringe figure Lyndon LaRouche, have popped up at town halls and anti-reform rallies. Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) famously took one such LaRouchie to task, asking her what planet she was from.
