Skip to comments.House to Discipline Wilson for 'You Lie!' Outburst (Democrat hypocrites run amuck)
Posted on 09/15/2009 3:37:39 AM PDT by tobyhill
The House Democratic leadership has decided to bring a "resolution of disapproval" Tuesday afternoon against Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) for his jeer last week at President Obama during a Joint Session of Congress.
Wilson bellowed "You lie!" at Obama during his address. It's against House rules to call the president a "liar" or accuse him of "lying" when the House is in session.
"We're not the British parliament for a reason," said Kristie Greco, spokeswoman for House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC)."Ignoring the issue sets a precedent for bad behavior."

Meanwhile, crooks like Charlie Rangel keep their positions...
I hope Rep. Wilson points this out. But heck, am official seal of disapproval from the Democrat party? I'd be wearing that like a badge of honor.
Not ok to call this marxist pos a liar but it IS ok for these congressional vermin to call Bush hitler?
Pleas GOD a plague on this congress.
This is what the Republicans get for playing nice for the first 6 years under President Bush. They better learn to fight back or they’re going in the way of the Whigs.
A racist demagogue's mouthpiece talking about setting precedent for bad behavior? How precious.
Wear it as a badge of honor in this cesspool of a Congress, Joe.
The Dems are digging their own graves, and they’re too stupid to know it.
Can’t say I’m surprised. We now live in a world where brave, truthful and honest folks are crucified and liars, cheaters and thieves are elevated to the highest offices in the country.
War is Peace
Freedom is Slavery
Ignorance is Power
I, for one, won’t die peacefully in a world such as this and I’ll bet most Freepers are of the same mind.
But it’s perfectly ok for Dems to boo and hiss at President Bush’s addresses to Congress. Double standard.
Do the rules cover someone calling said Extinguished Visitor to the House a “flaming mo-fo”?
Well that's true. If an MP lies to the British Parliament and is caught in the lie, he is finished.
Wear it like a Badge of Honor Joe.
Thank you for pubically speaking the truth in Congress, probally for the first time, for anyone, in decades.
What, no discipline for Rahm Emanuel, running up and down rows waving his finger under the noses of Congresspersons, screaming and spitting saliva in his anger into their faces? Now there’s someone who should be censured for rudeness!!! And if Maureen Dowd can “investigate” and “discover” that Joe Wilson is a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, why can’t she “discover” where our President was born and who these thugs are with whom he associates?
I think watching Parliament on C-Span is a hoot - especially, though, because we don’t have to live under their policies.
Yet the same House who will bring a resolution against Rep Joe Wilson for merely say two words, will not and never did bring a resolution against Charlie Rangel or Rep. William Jefferson, the Louisiana Democrat who had $90,000 in payoff cash in his freezer.
