WASHINGTON -- The House voted along party lines Tuesday to "disapprove" the actions of Rep. Joe Wilson, who shouted "You lie!" during President Barack Obama's address to Congress last week.

Republicans dismissed the move as petty, noting the president had already accepted an apology from Mr. Wilson, a South Carolina Republican.

Opposing voices must be punished...

And silenced...

Funny how they have time for THIS, but they don’t have time to read the bills they pass... OR investigate ACORN... OR Charlie Rangel...

He should have known this was coming. I wouldn’t have apologized.

We have to remember to get even the second Republicans next take over the House.

I propose EXPULSIONS, or maybe even DETENTIONS somewhere inside the House end of the Capitol Building.

The time of civility has ended.

Anybody here know Joe Wilson personally? Advise him to send anybody a personally autographed copy of the rebuke letter for a contribution of $25 or more.

Hopefully, in 2010, we will “rebuke” the Democrats. Payback will be good for the country.

Keep sticking the needle into the conservatives among us there you communists. We are mad as hell and we aren’t going to take it anymore. Nobody has your six except maybe Castro or Chavez.

I think that ‘rebuke’ is something I would wear as a badge of honor. Speaking truth to power...awesome!

Seven Republicans voted to rebuke and 12 Dems against.

The names are not out as far as I can tell. Think we need to find candidates to run against those seven.

The idiot from GA calling it racist with his other comments was sleeze all the way.

Boehner got into it with the Majority Whip on the Floor of the House. Anyone thinking Boehner is not standing up should go see the exchange.

Oh no, rebuked for ‘accusations of mendacity.’ Get the wet noodle.

and funny how the Congress has moaned and groaned and clapped and audibly responded to Presidents’ Past speeches in that sacred Chamber. how about sitting on their hands from now on......just sit mute! this forum is a big show, a big night out in front of the TV cameras.

how about their behavior when they don’t even show up to vote on something they have not read. they should be ashamed.

a lie pointed out in that room or outside that chamber door to the press, is there any difference?

To be rebuked by such a despicable group is a Badge of Honor!

As soon as I saw the news of this earlier, I whipped out my credit card and went over and gave Joe Wilson’s campaign some more money. It’s like training a puppy. When these Congresscritters do something wrong, you spank them. When they do something right, you reward them. When the mainstream media and Congress spanks them for doing something right, you reward them again.

Thanks! Some of these people I don’t have a clue about but Flake and Rohrbacher I have to wonder about what is up with them?
