*(Via MSN News) – So much for starting with a fresh slate. Barely a week into the new Congress and a Republican lawmaker has compared President Obama to German dictator Adolf Hitler.
In a tweet slamming the president for not attending the peace demonstration in Paris that following the terrorist attack there, Texas Rep. Randy Weber said:

Weber represents Texas’s 14th Congressional District, the same seat formerly held by Rep. Ron Paul. In his brief stint in Congress, Weber has made headlines for other controversial statements and creative spelling displays.
