Texas Congressman Randy Weber Tweets Then Deletes Comparision Of Hitler And Obama

Texas Congressman Randy Weber has come under fire for a tweet he shared comparing President Obama to Hitler’s march through Europe.

After a firestorm of criticism it appears the tweet was deleted and Weber shared a link to his House webpage where he issues a kind of apology.

Weber has a history of anti-Obama comments, so this is nothing new.  But to compare attending a march in Paris over the shooting of five journalists at Charlie Hebdo to a holocaust that led to the death of millions is severely unbalanced.

I personally agree with some critics that the White House should have sent a higher level representative to the march in Paris. We have a Secretary of State who not only speaks French, but foreign relations ARE his job. I would like to know why John Kerry did not attend.

That being said, Weber’s comments are outside the boundaries of sane thought and good taste.
