    It's ineffective as an attack on Obama, I think, but it's true the Nazis had reasons for what they did. They were under the influence of a combination of bad science, bad ideology, and the moral conviction that ends justify means. That doesn't mean they also weren't evil people, especially their leaders. But to understand them, I think you have to appreciate that evil people + bad ideas was needed to create Naziism and the Holocaust.
