Washington: US President Barack Obama has been compared to Adolf Hitler and Vladimir Lenin in a roadside billboard created by a branch of the Tea Party in Iowa.
According to The Telegraph, the North Iowa Tea Party began displaying the sign in Mason City last week. It shows photographs of Obama, the German Nazi leader and Russian communist with the statement: "Radical leaders prey on the fearful & naive."
The words "Democratic Socialism" are featured over Obama``s picture, over Hitler``s photo is "National Socialism" and over Lenin``s head is "Marxist Socialism." The word "Change" – Obama``s campaign slogan – is included on each photo.
North Iowa Tea Party co-founder Bob Johnson said the sign highlighted what the group argues is Obama``s support for socialism.
The White House declined to comment.
