Statement

In response to two postings of offensive commercials equating the President of the United States George W. Bush to Adolph Hitler, Chief Deputy Whip Eric Cantor released the following statement:

"As an American and as a Jew, I am disgusted by the casual and constant use of Hitler by liberal Democrats to attack people and ideas they do not like. To compare any American President to that monster cheapens the sacrifice of millions of lives and denigrates America . MoveOn.org is using the same ugly and dishonest communications tools that others have used to warp the truth to propagate a point of view. I would recommend they review world history and make a decision whether this type of abuse is what their organization and their members stand for.

" America needs more from Democrats than hateful and untrue attacks, yet during this election cycle Democrats have done little else. I call on all Democrat presidential candidates to renounce these ads by calling for MoveOn.org to publicly apologize for allowing these commercials to be posted."
