Republican Congressman Steve Stockman, who is threatening to have President Barack Obama impeached over his use of executive orders to curb gun violence, last night compared the President to Saddam Hussein, the Iraqi dictator known for using children as human shields to protect him, and who was responsible for hundreds of thousands of Iraqi citizen deaths.
Ahead of President Obama’s press conference today, to which several schoolchildren were invited to sit onstage, Rep. Stockman spoke to Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren:
STOCKMAN: If he thinks his bills are good, his law is good, then he should go through Congress, not just issue it. He’s not a king.
VAN SUSTEREN: Well, we’ll find out tomorrow whether or not he’s going to do executive orders or whether or not he may ultimately seek to work with Congress on something.
STOCKMAN: He’s even using children. It reminds me of Saddam Hussein when he used kids.
VAN SUSTEREN: Uh, well that’s a little bit of a stretch, but anyway, Congressman, always nice to see you.
There is no bottom to the well of lies, deceit, and hate the Republican party will fabricate to fight this President and the American people.
Congressman Stockman owes the President an apology.
Don’t hold your breath.
