This is a WIN for us. I am glad the partisans did this rather than deal with our collapsing fiat currency, declining lifestyle, and impending socialization. The moderates think punishing Joe over 2 words is just silly.

Hope this translates into another 1/2 million in campaign contributions.

A rare show of courage in that institution.

We need a list of snakes (voting “yea”). I am surprised that so many Dems voted on this farce. Don’t they want to be re-elected? Beck has to play sock-a-me with them.

A rebuke from the nazi congress of the USA is a Badge of Courage and Honor. Wear it proudly, congressman Wilson, you have earned it.

This could barely be called a slap on the wrist. It is nothing more than a bone thrown to the Black Caucus to make them happy.

Joe Wilson was right. I’m not sure I agree with how he did it, but he was right. Obama IS a liar.

Was the vote for rebuke to 0bama for lying? ... or Wilson for pointing it out?

Why were there any “against” votes? The Repubs should have walked out. By even participating in this kangaroo court they have given it the air of legitimacy.

This will prove to be a Pyrrhic victory for the Democrats and a fabulous opportunity for Representative Joe Wilson. I hope he seizes it.

Good going House Democrats!

Doesn’t matter: Wilson’s seat was impregnable even before this vote. You can’t be “even more impregnable than impregnable.” Multiplying infinity by infinity doesn’t accomplish anything.

See Politico: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0909/27194.html

[Snip] While Democrats said they were defending the rules of the House and enforcing the traditional decorum of the chamber, Republicans mounted a fierce attack on the resolution, saying it was a waste of time after Wilson had duly apologized to President Barack Obama for his outburst during a joint address to Congress. While a resolution of disapproval is little more than a slap on the wrist, a formal roll call vote like this – permanently entered into the Congressional Record – is extremely rare. [Snip]

[Snip] According to a C-SPAN count, 11 Democrats voted no on the resolution, and seven Republicans voted yes. [Snip]

Joe Wilson spoke “TRUTH” to Power and was rebuked. Thats how far down this country has fallen. If you dare to question obama you are labled it is typical alinsky rules. Now can we also ask the House to rebuke Harry Reids comment that George W. Bush was a liar. Can we get Nancy Pelosi rebukded for her comments about the CIA lying? How bout Kerry and his telling people that our troops were raping and pillaging in Iraq? Can anyone hold an investigation on Murtha? Is William Jerfferson even going to do time for bribary?

America is falling apart at a rapid pace.
