South Carolina congressman heckles Obama during healthcare speech, calls him “liar”

by editor on September 10, 2009

When South Carolina Republican Joe Wilson yelled out, “You lie,” during president Obama’s latest healthcare speech, he was either venting his anger or giving in to the voices in his head. We’re going with the former.

Apparently Obama’s statement that “There are also those who claim that our reform effort will insure illegal immigrants. This, too, is false. The reforms I’m proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally” proved too much for the Congressman.

Wilson’s actions did not sit well with many, even some members of his own party who may have been secretly wishing that they had the balls to yell out themselves.

“Anybody who would cat-call the president of the United States addressing this body is very, very inappropriate, and he will hear from a lot of us about that,” Rep. Jerry Lewis (R-Calif) told FOX News Radio.

Although Wilson has already apologized to the President, there have been shouts for his immediate resignation from Democrat blogs.

The best evidence of the shocking nature of the heckling could be seen while watching the reaction of Nancy Pelosi, who was seated immediately behind the President. After watching the incident repeatedly, Tivo owners report that shock proved more powerful than botox and that Speaker of the House’s expression actually changed.

The democrats are the biggest hypocrites in this country. I guess Reed has forgotten what he said to and about Bush. Nor did he apologize for it. The liberals whine about everything. Obama did lie, while Wilson spoke the truth. If I had to work with, and see all those disgusting yucks everyday, I too would not be able to control my contempt for them. Jeers to Mr. Wilson for calling that liar out.

Okay, so Wilson acted unladylike. I have found that sometimes, it’s just worth it.

If not allowed I apologize in advance, if you have ever seen South Park you will understand.

So maybe “illegals” won’t be covered…but what happens in 3 years when all illegals are given amnesty…”THEY WILL ALL GET INSURANCE THEN”….so if the Left wants to play the “twist” the word game that is becoming their favorite game….

I can play that game also….

Yeah, let’s call for his resignation. Obviously, yelling out truths at this mother of all town hall meetings is tantamount to lying and cheating on your taxes. Oh wait a minute! No, it’s not. No one would want a tax cheat to step down, would they? Maybe this Congressperson has Tourette’s Syndrome, huh. That is a disease, isn’t it? See how much the libs want to take care of the all the sick people?

I’ll bet they’re just shocked that the Golden Rule was used against them. How dare those Republicans?!?

Joe Biden, of course, made a fool of himself, almost crying over the insult to “institution that he loves.” It is telling that Biden SO loves an institution that is held is such contempt by the citizens of this country. Funny, but I don’t remember him condemning the booing and heckling of Bush by members of HIS party, who are, incidentally, members of that same “loved” institution. Guess he just forgot that, huh.

Of course, Nancy had the same appalled expression on her face when the Dems booed and heckled Bush when he discussed reformation of Social Security, right?
