US Congressman Compares Obama to Saddam

US Congressman Compares Obama to Saddam 

TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior US congressman, angry at President Barack Obama's policies after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, compared him to the former Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein.

President Obama introduced a comprehensive plan to tackle gun violence on Wednesday, surrounded by children who wrote to him after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX), who has already threatened to impeach Obama over his efforts, attacked Obama for inviting concerned children to his press conference.

Speaking with Fox News host Greta Van Susteren on Tuesday night, Stockman explained his intent to pursue impeachment if Obama tried to use executive orders to combat gun violence. Stockman ended the interview by comparing Obama's "use" of children to Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.

Since Sandy Hook, Republicans have compared Obama to various dictators, including Hitler and Stalin.
