Tonight, during Obama’s 29th (or is it 30th) speech on healthcare, someone— South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson — yelled “You Lie” after Obama did, indeed, lie about illegal immigrants not being included in the healthcare plan.
Rep. Wilson, a majority of Americans watching the glorified government takeover speech were mouthing the words right along with you as you said them.
Then we all had a fearful look at the sight of Nancy Pelosi’s face cracking at the sheer audacity of a Congressman to call Obama what he is.
Of course, those on the Left, and likely some in Congress will talk endlessly tonight and tomorrow about decorum and all.
And normally I would say that this type of action doesn’t belong in this forum. And Rep. Wilson will likely be forced to apologize has already apologized and maybe that is the respectful thing to do.
HOWEVER……….decorum and respect went out the door about the time Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Joe Biden, and Barack Obama walked through it.
How, pray tell, is “you lie”any different from our leaders calling AMERICAN CITIZENS Nazi’s, Astroturfers, Brownshirts, liars, angry mobsters, terrorists and more? Especially when Obama WAS lying in his speech? Not to mention that the name calling of the Left has been almost pure projection and untrue?
Just tonight, Obama accused protesters and those against a government takeover of healthcare of just “bickering”. No valid points, no passion, no right to protest “The One”…just bickering.
Is that the Left’s idea of decorum and respect for those they serve?
“You Lie” was the truth. And Obama does it almost every time he speaks.

I like this take on it from Nice Deb:
I’m sorry, but after all of the insults that Republicans have had to take for the past eight months from this man, who even when addressing a joint session of Congress can’t restrain himself from attacking the previous administration, who has the audacity to lecture us about civility after he and his cronies insulted and demeaned protesters for months… it’s just not fair to ask Republicans to sit on their hands and bite their tongues when the President gets in front them and continues to spew out lie after demonstrable lie:
So hurray for Joe Wilson, my new hero:…..
It was Obama’s idea to hold a joint session of Congress on this very divisive issue, and give his eleventy hundredth speech on the subject. It was his idea to continue trying to sell it by offering pie in the sky solutions with no negative consequences. Americans have been educating themselves on the facts of what’s in these health care bills, and are finding out that just because Obama says something, it doesn’t mean it’s true. Republicans in Congress shouldn’t be expected to put up with it.
If this is the beginning of a UK Parliament style proceeding, with lots of yelling and cat calls, so be it. That can be Barry’s legacy. The man who promised to end divisiveness will go down as the man who’s shameless and audacious lies inspired an uprising not only amongst an alarmed citizenry, but also amongst Washington pols forced to listen to them.
