Arizona lawmaker refers to Obama as 'De Fuhrer' on Facebook

Like many Republican lawmakers, Brenda Barton is furious that the federal government shutdown has forced the closure of national parks.

Barton, an Arizona state representative, took to Facebook to express her fury in a series of status updates Monday. In one, she compared President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler.

In an interview with the Arizona Capitol Times, Barton stood by the comparison.

Hes dictating beyond his authority, she said of Obama. Its not just the death camps. (Hitler) started in the communities, with national health care and gun control. You better read your history. Germany started with national health care and gun control before any of that other stuff happened. And Hitler was elected by a majority of people."
