It seems to be a frequent occurrence in American politics to compare the politicians that you don’t agree with to the former German dictator, Adolf Hitler.
The comparison was made by detractors of President George W. Bush,both during and after his presidency, as well as against the current President. The question is whether this type of behavior is below the stature of a Congressman.
Rep. Randy Weber (R-TX.) didn’t seem to think so when he decided to make the comparison on his Twitter account, referencing Obama’s absence at the rally in Paris:
Even Adolph Hitler thought it more important than Obama to get to Paris. (For all the wrong reasons.) Obama couldn’t do it for right reasons

His tweet did not receive the warmest response.
Like others before it, this tweet will probably blow over. But what will become of the Congressman for this statement is yet to be seen.
