(Newser) – Ahead of last night's State of the Union Address, a Republican congressman tweeted his thoughts on the president: "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?'" Texas Rep. Randy Weber's office has confirmed the authenticity of the tweet, the Huffington Post notes.

The first-term congressman later added, per the Washington Post, "SOTU = Sorry Our Time's Up. POTUS = Poor Obama Trashed US. We shouldn't be surprised. He promised to 'fundamentally change US' Boy is he?!" Weber was elected in 2012, taking over Ron Paul's spot in Congress. If his name still isn't ringing a bell, the Huffington Post points to this description of him, from a July 2013 National Journal profile: "Freshman aims to be the next Republican troublemaker, if only someone would pay attention."
