The President's heckler

I contributed today to the campaign of Joe Wilson's opponent. This just makes me sick:

Last night, after Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) interrupted President Obama’s speech by yelling, “you lie!,” Wilson issued a statement of apology and followed it up with a call to White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. But House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) doesn’t think Wilson’s efforts at repentance go far enough. On MSNBC’s Morning Joe today, Hoyer called Wilson’s actions “inappropriate” and “shameful,” adding, “I think, frankly, he ought to apologize to the House as well because not only did he undermine the civility in the House of Representatives.”

Yes, he needs to apologize to the House. If he can't respect the man, that's his business but if doesn't respect the office of the President of the United States then he is no patriot. I stand by that.

I found the above passage right here.


  1. The honourable member from South Carolina is a rank amateur. To see a real pro in action look at this website devoted to the sayings of a former Australian prime minister.

    I too have signed the petition, and I actually suggested that he resign his position due to such lack of respect for it. He should apologize not only to his colleagues but to the the people of this country as well for his shameful, disgusting outburst.
