It took Don Kennedy three paragraphs to get to Hitler in his condemnation of President Obama's asking for a grant of authority as part of his top secret clandestine behind-the-scenes State of The Union Address before a joint session of Congress ("Don't allow history to repeat itself: Socialism can lead to dictatorship," AFN, Feb. 1). Compare with Cheney and his hand puppet right-out-there-in-the-open-for-everyone-to-see pedaling bogus reasons for starting a war at the cost of spilled American blood and treasure. Post hoc ergo propter hoc - more powerful than compound interest!

One wonders what Kennedy makes of the fact that Hitler built the autobahn and Eisenhower built the interstate? Or that Genghis Khan and Attila the Hun both slept with the light on.
