When asked what President Obama thinks about some of the "Nazi imagery" being bandied about by Rush Limbaugh and others against the President's health care plan, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says he believes the President believes in talking about the issues without "personally maligning" anybody.
With regards specifically to critics comparing Obama and his plans to Nazi Germany, Gibbs says: "I think anytime you make references to what happened in Germany in the '30's and '40's... I think you're talking about an event that has no equivalent... and I think anytime anyone ventures to compare anything to that... they're on thin ice."
"The best thing to do," he closes, "is to take that temperature down a bit."
