GOP challenger to Tim Ryan compares Obama to Hitler, Stalin



Published: Mon, August 6, 2012 @ 4:27 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Republican Marisha Agana, challenging U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan for his congressional seat, compared President Barack Obama to Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler and Mao Zedong in a Twitter message.

Agana “tweeted” at 10:36 a.m. Sunday: “History has a way of repeating itself: Stalin, Hitler, Mao Tse Tung and now Obama!!!”

Larry Nichols, her campaign manager, said Agana, a Howland pediatrician, said today he is “excited she screwed up because it’s bringing out an issue we could run a campaign with Marisha at the forefront. She is very much against abortion.”

In response to another Twitter user, Agana tweeted at 9:48 a.m. today: “I am sorry if I made a poor choice of analogy but I was referring to his pro-abortion stance!”

In a statement today, Agana said, “I’m 100 percent against abortion and I’m excited this issue has come to the forefront.”
