LOL – I realize I am late to the party, but this was too funny. If Joe shouts at me “You lie!” about something I have said (and I know he is wrong), I’ll be sure not to vote for him. I have got a revelation for you, Jeanetteq, and I’ll type really slow – the President isn’t Joe’s boss, his constituents are; and sometimes he gets it right, and sometimes he doesn’t, and they decide, every couple of years, whether he is worth keeping, or whether there is a more appropriate applicant willing to do the job. It doesn’t work perfectly, but overall, it’s a pretty cool system. Do yourself a favor and do a search on “separation of powers” on your search engine of choice because it looks like you slept through Civics.

Peace

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.

At the risk of being flamed, I just want to praise Rep. Wilson for having the stones to stand up, be counted, and call a spade a spade. If I lived in SC still, he’d have my voter’s support. As it is, he has my moral support.

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?

All you lefty Moby posters start out with either telling everyone how you are a Republican or you were a Republican, or maybe you registered as a Republican in the primary so you could vote for RINO McCain, so you’re not totally a liar. These days you can say that truthfully as well because it has been possible to be a liberal and be a Republican for a while now, just look at Lindsey Graham. Claiming to be a former conservative is something you don’t see much of, though, and being a conservative is not synonymous with being a Republican, especially inside The Beltway.

The POTUS is not the boss of the Congress. That’s one of the problems right now in the USA, that people are so ignorant of The Constitution that we are allowing it to be shredded before our eyes due to that ignorance. FYI: The Executive and Legislative branches are supposed to have checks and balances between them, and the same for the Judicial branch as well. The POTUS said that he was prepared to “rule” when he took office, and that is exactly the way he is approaching The Office. The POTUS is a public servant, not the Ruler, and not The Boss. My 10th grade POD teacher brought me up to speed on that, and my pocket copy of The Constitution has it in black-and-white.

The only thing that surprises me more than the blatant disregard that many in our government have for their constituents as intelligent human beings, is how blindly those same intelligent humans will fight for the R or the D. Mr. Wilson gave the noble sacrifice of his career to bring light to a lie which has been handed to the American public, and all you can focus on is the fact that he spoke out of turn. Have you given any thought to the fact that not one of the supporters of the health care bill can prove that the President was not lying? In fact measures have been taken in the other direction, to make sure that Illegal aliens are covered. So I ask you ladies, which is more detrimental to the future of our Great Nation, a rude representative, or an untruthful President?

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

Have a nice day!

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.

So disrespecting the president of the United States is a way to get your point across??? come on “uncajake” you can’t agree with what this man did…no one is saying he can’t have an opinion but there is a time and a place for everything and he above all as a congressman should know that, if he’s going to act like a child whenever someone says something he doesn’t like then he needs to give up his seat IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!!!

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.

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??

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

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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 ?

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.

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.
