PHOENIX – Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., went on an hour-long Twitter rant once President Barack Obama landed in the state.

According to Rep. Gosar’s Twitter feed, a total of 14 twitter posts on the social networking site were critical of President Obama.

From green energy to border security, Rep. Gosar also claimed he was receiving numerous e-mails, calls and Facebook posts from Arizonans who were discontent with Obama’s “Gang of Eight” plan, a major overhaul of immigration reform.

The president arrived at Sky Harbor International Airport at about 11:45 a.m., where he was greeted by Gov. Jan Brewer and Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton.
