Breitling Oil and Gas Texas Morning Podcast #280

Texas Railroad Commission Chairman Barry Smitherman weighed in on the gun-control developments in Washington, re-tweeting an image that showed a noose beside the names of Republican U.S. Senators who had voted down a filibuster.

Smitherman re-posted an image with the text “Make sure none of these people have seats in 2014.” The accompanying image showed a list of the 16 Republican senators whose vote had broken the filibuster that would have kept the gun-control bill off the U.S. Senate floor. A noose dangled beside the names, topped by a single word: “Treason.”  Smitherman added his own commentary, tweeting: ”We are in trouble when these Rs side w/ Sen Reid.” The list included Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Oklahoma, and Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, the Republican party’s 2008 presidential nominee.
