First-term Texas Republican Randy Weber took to Twitter Tuesday night to call Barack Obama "a socialistic dictator" just before the President arrived in the Capitol for the State of the Union.

Weber, who was elected in 2012 to the seat vacated by Ron Paul on Texas's Gulf Coast, tweeted On floor of house waitin on "Kommandant-In-Chef" [sic]... the Socialistic dictator who's been feeding US a line or is it "A-Lying?"

His controversial tweet marks yet another controversial eruption by a Republican congressman around an Obama speech to Congress. In 2009 South Carolina Republican Joe Wilson shouted "You Lie" when he spoke to Congress about his health care reform plan.
