    ObamaCare has been drafted so as not to require citizenship verification that is currently required for Medicaid under the status quo. So you see, he did lie.

    Way to go Joe !

    You disgust me with your bi-partisan agenda and pompous attitude. It is representatives like you that hold this country back from truly accomplishing something for the benefit of the people. You should resign for your lack of respect for the State of South Carolina (that you are privileged to represent), the President of the United States and to the American People. We deserve better representatives than you. These types of childish games and bantering will surely rally the American people in your State and this great country to end your career and others like you!

    Oh Joe…SAY IT AIN’T SO!! I can’t believe you apologized. Don’t you know that if you had left it at your original comment you would have had millions behind you? Yours was probably the most truthful statement made of the night as Obama was lying. Not only was he lying, but he was threatening all who do not agree with this reform bill. Nonetheless, your apology is what “Gentlemen” must do. I don’t think it changes what is in your heart. I’m still adding you to my campaign contribution list

    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?

  • MrsBeck 09/10/2009 2:32pm

    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!!!!!”

    The New American hero. The office of the President deserves no more respect than the man sitting in that office deserves. If he is a liar let him be called such.

    Joe Wilson spoke for countless Americans who wish they had the opportunity to do what he did. I wish Joe Wilson representated my state !

    Barack Hussain Obama is a liar and has done nothing to deserve the position he is in.

    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!

    You wish you had Wilson representing you. Take him! You’ll get no fight from anyone here.

  • 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.

    no, HR 3200 states that no funds will be used to assist illegal aliens in receiving healthcare. We have millions of illegals in the country now, you can’t seriously think they aren’t going to hospitals and emergency rooms, right now… and you can’t seriously believe that all of them are paying for the care they receive….. and YOU CAN’T SERIOUSLY believe that that cost isn’t getting pushed off onto EVERYONE that pays for their own healthcare insurance. Hospitals and insurance companies sure as hell aren’t eating those costs.. they are getting passed off on to those who do pay!! Thats why rates are so high!!! There is a way to disagree with someone and still be respectful, especially for the President of the United States of America. Like it or not, that is your President.

  • 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 ?

    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!

    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.

  • marandlen 09/14/2009 9:14am

    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!

    The shame of the matter is that you have voted FOR granting illegal immigrants access to healthcare. To insult the President of the United States for the House bill which clearly states that this is not the case is the height of hypocrisy. I will gladly support your opponent in the next election although I am a Republican.

    Faheem, you are a Moby or a Troll, and no one is buying what you’re selling.

    Have a nice day!

  • 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!

    Hopefully this childish outburst is now over. He sent an apology via a messenger to the President (never did speak directly to the President) and his own colleagues voted to denounce his behavior which will forever be in the Congressional records thus creating a wonderful legacy for himself. If anyone for a minute doesn’t think this was all part of a plan to shift focus and create sentiment for himself you’re not paying attention. While crude and unrefined Mr. Wilson is not stupid and knew exactly what he was doing. Can we now get back to doing something good for the country and the American people??

  • magmotif 09/18/2009 9:17am

    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.

  • 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.
