    I watched the video mentioned in yesterday's article by Matthew Kolken (2/2/2011 ID) showing the president making very apt and pungent comments comparing America's current outbreak of nativism with the prejudice against Jewish and Italian immigrants that was prevalent in the 1920's.

    How sad that the president making this timely and accurate warning in the video was George W. Bush, not Barack Obama, whom Mr. Kolken accurately calls our "Deporter in Chief"
