Joe Barton's Powerpoint Presentation Joe Barton's Powerpoint Presentation The ranking House Energy and Commerce Committee Republican, Rep. Joe Barton (Tex.) is e-mailing a slideshow around to colleagues pledging to do for the administration what Gen. Patton and company did for Germany. Check out slide 10. Joe Barton, famous for apologizing to BP after their horrendous oil spill, compares himself to General George Patton. Eric Cantor is "Omar Bradley" and John Boehner is Dwight D. Eisenhower. Three men who were NEVER in the military comparing themselves to Real American Hero's suggesting they are fighting Barrack "Adolf Hitler" Obama. What's next? Limbaugh's "Magic Negro"? So go ahead, move this to the Flame Zone, but this is the state of American Politics. Obama and the Democrats thinking they could work with Republicans who are suggesting the Democrats are Nazi's. Republicans insist only a few "fringe"? No, I don't think so. Tax breaks for billionaires? Stop unemployment just before Christmas. And now this. Republicans have clearly drawn the line in a game of class warfare.
