Joe Wilson

Joe Wilson who yelled, “You Lie” during the President’s speech last night has been so overwhelmed his website has gone off line!  .gov bites the dust when the going gets tough. 

The president was greeted by booming applause from Democrats and polite handshakes from Republicans. But the political challenge at hand soon became clear as several Republican lawmakers heckled Mr. Obama when he dismissed the notion that so-called death panels would deny care to the elderly.

“It is a lie, plain and simple,” Mr. Obama declared.

“You lie!” Representative Joe Wilson of South Carolina yelled back after Mr. Obama said it was not true that the Democrats were proposing to provide health coverage to illegal immigrants. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/10/us/politics/10obama.html?_r=1&hp

Wilson’s outburst was probably not planned, but an out pouring of emotion and affront to his intelligence.  How long could anyone sit there and listen to well,…lies with out having a comment of some sort of another?  I can not repeat here the words I was thinking while watching this-

For Wilson of South Carolina- enough was enough at about the half way point in the lecture.  He could restrain himself no more.

Senator John McCain felt that Wilson should apologize.  I feel maybe Obama should apologize for stating directives that can never be paid for the way he intends to.  

Wilson was the bigger man although I am not sure I would have- saying, “While I disagree with the president’s statement, my comments were inappropriate and regrettable, I extend sincere apologies to the president for this lack of civility.”  I just know he had his fingers crossed behind his back as he made the statement.  I might move to South Carolina just so I can vote for Wilson.  Seems like a nice place and they’ve got great beaches and fishing.

It’s about time someone in politics took a stand.  Former Congressman Traficant who was just released from prison might have said something like, “Beam me up, Scotty-who knew there was a politician left who had balls enough to speak the truth?”
