Disassociating self from Hitler analogy

Because in the past I have written letters to the Daily Herald, I feel it necessary to point out to my friends and associates that I am not the Mike O'Brien (of Prospect Heights) whose Feb. 22 letter compared President Obama to Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin.

Although I disagree with the president on several key issues, I would never be so foolish as to slander a sitting U.S. president in my local newspaper. I do not wish to be mired down in the muck with those whose anger and hatred is rooted in blind obedience to political party doctrine, whether they be Republicans or Democrats.

Michael O'Brien
