Rep. Wilson said what we as freedom-loving Americans want to say to Obama; but do not have the opportunity.
Obama lied and continues to lie. Obama said he wants to work with the Republicans; just because he agreed with McCain on ‘one’ issue does not mean he agrees with the rest of them. That was a bone he threw to McCain.
During Obama’s speech on the floor House chamber he said we ( the American people ) lie. When have you ever heard a president say THAT in a address to the Nation?
I say scrap this bill and start over!

If I shouted “YOU LIE” to my boss during a team meeting I would be FIRED. You should be too.

I never thought I would live to see the say when the President of the United States was called a liar on the Senate floor. Have you no sense of decorum, sir?

Thank you Joe Wilson for expressing the truth — you exposed an important issue that was purposefully hidden from the general public. You said what the media will not say. You have my support.

dnjz66 09/14/2009 3:11pm

You called it like you saw it Joe. We see the issue the same way. Obama and his cronies need to be kept in check. Rep. Wilson, you deserve respect for looking after the interest of this country. Please keep it up and as for the liberals, I guess it is a taste of their own medicine, as for respect for them, they deserve nothing! Good job!

BTW: The following is a fact, The House version of the health care bill explicitly prohibits spending any federal money to help illegal immigrants get health care coverage. Illegal immigrants could buy private health insurance, as many do now, but wouldn’t get tax subsidies to help them. Still, Republicans say there are not sufficient citizenship verification requirements to ensure illegal immigrants are excluded from benefits they are not due.

justacitizen 09/09/2009 6:39pm

Sir, I would expect a man of your stature would think before a knee-jerk reaction to what the President said. You were extremely rude to heckle the President as you did and those who agree with you show their ignorance.
God Bless America, we need it.

CongressCritter 09/09/2009 5:32pm

To the two stupid drones that have already weighed in with their insipid dross all I can say is that Rep Wilson is expressing what all freedom loving Americans know – Obama is an empty suit, who is promulgating a Socialist agenda that is antithetical to our American way of living that has provided us with unbelievable blessings of bounty for over 200 years.

Obama lies. There is noway in hell that the government is going to run healthcare and not incur even greater unsustainable debt.
Obame is a liar and a turncoat friend. He fired his friend Van Johnson at midnight without so much as a mention. Some friend indeed.

Obama lies. He talks about someone being denied chemo therapy and never mentions the horrendous health disasters that occur daily within the Veterans Administration.

Rep. Wilson is my new hero and I would wager that I am not alone by a long shot.

Rep. Wilson spoke the truth, but you can’t handle it !

ajwz24 09/10/2009 8:55pm

this man is a disgrace to everything this country stands for. There is a way to disagree with someones political views and you can even disagree with the President, that was a perfect example of how NOT to do it.

texansagainstwilson 09/09/2009 9:28pm

From one (former) registered Republican to another… “you behaved like an idiot”! If you had any “true” sense of honor, you would resign immediately. Your urgency to denounce any and all proposals not originating from your own party speaks to the very nail currently being driven into the coffin of the GOP. Your ideals are flawed, your policies outdated, and your philosophy is beyond stagnant. Now you have risen to a whole new level of LOW. You outburst was disingenuous, disrespectful, and certainly not the actions of a gentleman.

Your great state must be so proud!

VIN321 09/10/2009 8:09pm

We should demand a birth certificate. My daughter plays softball and she has to have one to prove her age. Obama may be an “illegal” president. He may not have even been born in the U.S. Why is he getting away with that ?

Obama has done MORE than his share of disrespecting his position – bowing to foreign dignitaries, entertaining despots and murderers. The fact that a man was willing to sacrifice his career and reputation for the sake of integrity and the American people’s welfare is WELL worth the price of protocol. Had I been there, I’d have at very least gotten up and walked out…would love think I’d had the courage to do what Rep. Wilson did.

Liberator454th 09/09/2009 4:58pm

I cannot believe the stupendous ignorance of Rep Wilson yelling out “you lie” to the POTUS on the floor of the house on national TV. He should be expelled from the house ASAP! I’m appalled and disgusted, as I hope his constituents are also…

dawn872 09/09/2009 5:32pm

Congressman… you are my HERO. Because a man has power does not make him God. Obama is not above reproach. Call a liar a liar… I agree.

avoiceofreason 09/09/2009 9:05pm

Have you no respect for the office of the President, Mr. Wilson? Have you no respect for the electoral process of the country? Or is it that you have no respect for the millions of Americans who cast their votes for Barack Obama?

Why is it that you think that you can disrepect the President of the United States of America anywhere but especially on national television? And by accusing him of lying when the bill currently before Congress clearly states that it explicitly prohibits illegal immigrants from obtaining health coverage. Doesn’t that make you the liar, Mr. Wilson?

You, Mr. Wilson, are a disgrace to this country and the military. You should resign your seat immediately.

Sir, it would be interesting to know your views regarding the obvious mis-truths told to the American people by our last President regarding weapons of mass distruction in Iraq. Or how about the illegal tapping of American citizens phone lines.

I can see how low your standards really are and how easily you are impressed if Joe Wilson is your hero.

Madam,

Where were you when President Bush was called a liar? The only thing necessary for evil to prosper is for men of conscious to be silent.

Etiquette trumping character? The nearly 2 million who marched on Washington last month – catch any of their sign’s comments/slogans? What are so many seeing that marched that those in here aren’t?

There seem to be more concerned with a liar being called on his lying – no matter who it is or where it’s done – than there are those concerned with the substance of the accusation.

The stakes are much higher when the liar is the President – and – where better to call the President on a lie than in the People’s House? Mr. Wilson warned us in the perfect way, at the perfect time.

It’s NOT ok for illegal immigrants to be given free medical coverage when we will be fined heavily and then jailed if we still refuse (read: can’t) buy the insurance.

Why not focus on defending our Constitution and Sovereignty instead of coddling Obama?

BRAVO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Loud Applause and total Kudos!!!!! Thank you for screaming the TRUTH so everyone could hear it. I just wish you hadn’t apologized. Did you see the look on Obama, Pelosi, and Biden’s faces?? DUDE, that was PRICELESS!!!!!! Body language gives a liar away every time……
And to anyone who posts a negative comment, you may want to check Youtube for the incredible amount of heckling George W Bush received from the Democrats during his speeches. Hypocrites! Get over it!
Representative Wilson, next time maybe you could yell, “Hey Obama, show us the Birth Certificate and College records that you’ve spent $950,000 in legal fees to HIDE!!!!!”

GuyAverage 10/09/2009 8:25pm

Congressman Wilson, I want to thank you for saying what you were thinking. The Republican Party in general lacks men of courage and conviction and true conservatism. You have shown the entire nation that you have the courage of your conviction. You may have exceeded the level of expected decorum, similar to a many Democrats who loudly interrupted President George W. Bush during his State Of The Union address in the past, but you were “Spot-On” with your brief and pointed comment. Thank you for your service.

DOUGLASFIELD 04/29/2010 7:17am

he does have a birth certificate and a birth announcement in the hawaii paper. So, if he isn’t legal, 40 years ago, his mother, the paper editor, and the hospital all conspired to show that he was born in hawaii, just in case he became president one day? give me a break…. get a life!

VIN321 09/10/2009 8:01pm

I don’t know why this is such an issues when democrats did it to Bush and did’nt even have the decency to apologize. Besides Joe Wilson is correct Obama did lie. It in plain writing right in bill.

jotton1 09/09/2009 5:27pm

Rep. Wilson: As Virginia Moore said, “True self-respect, being very different from false pride, leads inevitably to respecting others.” I hope for your sake, and the sake of your constituents, that you will come to realize that your behavior on the floor of the Senate tonight was not befitting the position to which you were elected and showed a reprehensible lack of respect not only for the President of the United States, but for its citizens, as well.

Politiciansrcrooks 09/09/2009 10:49pm

Mr. Wilson,
I saw & heard what you did today to our Commander & Chief during his speech. I am appauled at what you did!!!!!
You and your party’s constant dis-respect toward our president & general disagreeing with him on EVERY turn is not helping our country.
That’s what’s wrong with this country. People like you & your party that just want to be divisive.
You politicians don’t do what’s right for the country, for the people. You guys do what’s right for you, your wallets, the lobbyists or your career. Your outburst showed that you can’t be openminded about things & discuss them respectfully & calmly. Your just another divisive politician that can’t see past his anger so that he can make a better place for us all.
Isn’t that what your there for?

ionacaddy 09/10/2009 9:00am

Dear Representative Wilson,
I just want to congratulate you on exercising your first amendment right to freedom of speech. Pay no attention to the sheeple who admonish your opinion of the president. While your apology may have been your own, your “spontaneous” outburst was more than likely caused by the millions of Americans whose same thought was somehow projected through your vocal cords. How does it feel to be the most loved/hated man in America?

So, the fact that Bush #43 lied about wmd’s in iraq, was just a honest mistake? We’ve spent trillions of dollars for a war built on lies! We’ve lost thousands of our brave soldiers, because the previous administration lied to the entire country!!! Democratic members of congress knew he was lying… never heard them sound out and disrespect him like Wilson did to PRESIDENT OBAMA! You can jump up and down, shouting at the top of your lungs, but that is OUR president. You can disagree all you want, but YOU WILL SHOW RESPECT!
