This would be a good line in the sand. Tell Specter to whistle, that the GOP will take care of its own matters without the advice of turncoats.

The democrats think they have an issue, but all they’ll end up doing is reminding everyone over & over that the president’s a liar.

This is ridiculous! After re-reading Obama’s speech, I found at least six times where he either used the words, lies, or untruths. On one occasion he said, “it is an outright lie.”

Obama must be mad. This is taking on a life of its own. All the Obama apoligists are focusing on Wilson. It is distracting people from Obama’s speech and plan. It can’t bode well for him.

While he is at it, why doesn’t he have Pelosi censored for saying the CIA “lies” all the time. These bastards are unbelievable with their bigotry.

Not "censored", but "censured".

Censored = silenced; Censured = chastised, reproved, punished

Specter wants Wilson censured

Censure may be in order but let's first determine if Wilson lied when he said Obama lied.

It is my opinion that Obama did indeed lie; not a flat out lie but a lie steeped in omission. An example of Obama's intellectual dishonesty.

Reading what Obama refers to in HR 3200 is akin to writing a law that establishes the legal drinking age at 21 but the same law contains a provision forbidding the bartender from asking for identification.

They need to circle the wagons around Wilson, not leave him out to dry. This is the problem with Republicans, they don't know how to resist global socialism, a violent, destructive, movement to whose followers the ends justify the means. Wilson spoke the truth, and used an Alinsky tactic against an Alinsky-ite, to resist the further consolidation of an authoritarian regime.

But no, Republican elites will be aghast.

Have these idiots ever seen the British parliament?

It is not the job of the Senate especially Specter to tell the House what to do or not do.

Somebody should introduce a bill simultaneously censuring Congressman and retroactively censuring the Democrats who booed Bush in his State of the Union address in 2005.

It’s perfectly fine with Arlen that in a joint session of Congress, televised around the world, Obama called Sarah Palin a liar along with calling more than half of Americans liars and crazies.

Obama will be the tool destroying America but fools like Specter, Graham, McCain, Kennedy, Frank, Pelosi and Reid are the ones who set the stage, enable him, and protect him.

Of the 545 individuals in Congress, the White House and SCOTUS how many are actally loyal patriots, worthy of the trust they are given?

Certainly no more than 10 percent.

Well, then...by the same standard, Obama should be censured for calling his opponents liars in his speech last night:

"Some of people's concerns have grown out of bogus claims spread by those whose only agenda is to kill reform at any cost. The best example is the claim, made not just by radio and cable talk show hosts, but prominent politicians, that we plan to set up panels of bureaucrats with the power to kill off senior citizens. Such a charge would be laughable if it weren't so cynical and irresponsible. It is a lie, plain and simple."

And where's their apology from him for that remark? {crickets}

Hmmm. My memory isn't too good, but were any of the following censured?:Teddy Kennedy when he called President Bush "Liar, Liar" on the floor of the Senate; when Dicky-boy Durbin compared our soldiers to Nazis....

I could go on, but you catch my drift...

Pete Stark compares Republicans to Nazis (on the record) (Congressional Records ^ | 3/20/02 | Pete Stark)

Mr. Chairman, there are some of us who remember this world in the 1930s, when Hitler suspended the Bundestag to promulgate conservative ideology and not let people speak. It is a shame that the Republicans in the House, Mr. Chairman, have taken up that same ideology and are denying a chance for debate and open discussion of a budget. It does smack of fascism; and it is too bad, because the American people will recognize that and understand that in a free economy, and in a free country that created programs like Social Security and Medicare and special education and aid for dependent children and aid for people who are unable to care for themselves, for the disabled, that to deny them care is obscene.

We just might make a martyr of Wilson and this should also help mainline the contention that the Obama care does bring free care to wet backs. Certainly it would help put this issue under the microscope and bring it more attention.

We are moving toward fascism and it’s being enabled by unhealthy congressional protocols that treat the president like a king. We need more of a parliamentary system where the president is held publickly accountable for his actions and policies. If we had a weekly “Question Time” like the British system, the birth certificate problem would have been taken care of instantly and 0 would have had more trouble telling lies like we heard last night.

Our Constitution is the best document on the planet, but our political system is one of the worst.

Censure may be in order but let's first determine if Wilson lied when he said Obama lied.

Whether or not Wilson was correct or incorrect is irrelevant -- he will be punished under the provision in Article I, Section 5, "disorderly behavior" in the Constitution. And they WILL punish him, his GOP fellows will go right along with whatever they decide, comity too much in their minds. Aggravating.
