Apparently, he just magically transformed into a crusty old white guy from Texas named Steve Stockman.
Sticking to the threat even after the actions turned out to be more of a wish list, Stockman landed on Greta Van Susteren’s Fox News show — where he proceeded to compare Obama to Saddam Hussein for the president’s news conference featuring kids, which Van Susteren dubbed a “little bit of a stretch.”
Stockman is planning to offer live commentary of the State of the Union address on Twitter with the hashtag #youlie, a homage to Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.), who once yelled those words during a joint session on health care reform in 2009.
Stockman’s guest at the SOTU speech will be Ted Nugent, a musician and pro-gun advocate who received a visit from the Secret Service after saying in a speech to the National Rifle Association supporting Mitt Romney: “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
And Stockman announced Monday that he is hanging a 10-foot poster outside his office titled the “Obama Failometer,” which will score the president’s “failed” economic policies on a scale from 1 to 1,000. He started the measure off the charts at 1,194.
