Joe Wilson of South Carolina -- the lawmaker who shouted "You Lie" at President Barack Obama during a speech -- remained hospitalized on Thursday with an "extended fever," his congressional office said.
Wilson contracted Lyme disease, a tick-borne illness, after working in his yard. He is being treated at the Lexington Medical Center in West Columbia, South Carolina, said Eric Dell, Wilson's chief of staff.

My friend almost died with that, In fact they had to bring him back with paddles, that was a month ago and he still is in bad shape from it.
I wish him luck , he is one of the only ones in Congress with a pair.
Watch out for that obamacare, Joe...
Godspeed for a quick recovery.
I hate to hear that. It is not a fun thing to deal with!!
See what happens when an illegal doesn’t tend your yard??
Hope he’s OK.
When 0bama said 0bamacare wouldn't cover illegal aliens Congressman Joe Willson stood up and said “YOU LIE!”.
He was correct.
I hope he gets better ASAP. He got a raw deal from the Congress and the media.
I drove by there Tuesday.
Joe Wilson said YOU LIE because he couldn’t stand that Muslim playing Communist telling the lies he tells continuously.
Obama is a Muslim #1 but he has taken the communist agenda of people like John Kerry and Nancy Polisi and is destroying the United States with their agenda.
Obama could give a rats A$$ about the oppressed blacks in the country. He is spending to enslave Americans with the debt that only a traitor could generate. I was in one of Joe Wilson’s satellite offices a few months ago and it was being argued Joe Wilson and others know what is going on but the comparison to Rodney King riots was used: We cannot put up with every window on Main Street being broken by the riots if we impeach Obama.
Instead these Republican IDIOTS would rather destroy our country rather than deal with a few communists who want to live on the producers in this country. My argument was bring it on, the sooner the better. If there are rioters who want to destroy because Obama is destroyed when he is exposed for his treason, then let’s let it happen.
The Traitors who placed Obama in power need to be hung for treason. Anything less than that response gives the traitors what they want.
Hoping for a quick recovery. Lyme disease is no joke.
Prayers up for his recovery. Lyme Disease can be deadly.
As a side note Amy Tan also suffers from this disease and one of her last books tells her story of misdiagnoses and mistreatment.
My sister-in-law had a stroke at the age of 55 after being diagnosed with Lyme disease. The bug got into her heart muscles and caused a fibrillation which caused the blood to develop clots. It can affect muscles, joints, nerves and bones, and manifest in any area of the body.
NO...congressmen/women and senators aren’t on obamacare and never will be.
A falling tide lowers all boats.
1. The senate is majority democrat. They would never vote to convict obama, making a house vote to impeach a waste of time, money and effort.
2. The democrats would use the house vote and subsequent senate acquittal as a weapon to beat on republicans until Nov. 12.
That’s Nov. 2012.
Prayers up. Now how did those ticks get there?
I know someone, too, like that—and it’s been awful trying to keep them off the dogs, even with the great new flea/tick meds...bad year for ticks
As has been said before, Lyme disease is nasty!
I don't believe he "stood up" but he did stand out?
Prayers up for this man who was brave enough to tell the truth about The Kenyan.
My friend’s 32 YO SIL had to have a heart transplant from Lyme disease.
excellent hospital he’s in
Buy it, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS, and use it.
Lyme disease is forever.
One of the signs is that it looks like a target...with rings. If you see something that looks like that get to a dr fast. It’s treatable if gotten to early.
You’re right, Lonestar. I got Lyme disease in ‘94 after a tick dropped out of a tree onto my back while I was mowing my yard with a RIDING mower. I found the tick that night while showering, on my upper left back. The very next morning, when I looked in the mirror, I was shocked to see such a definite red ring around the bite, probably 2” across!
I called in to work and went right to the doctor. I was put on a strong anti-biotic for the next 6 weeks, I think it was, and an EKG was run on me to see what my heart looked like while it was healthy. That scared me and while I don’t cry easily, I cried alot that day, because my husband had just died a year before and I still had a 2 year old to raise. I was really worried about her.
They tell me because I got treatment so early after the bite, it is as if I never had it. I can only thank God for the warning sign that day; who knows how bad things might have gotten if I hadn’t been alerted!
I know a couple of people with Lyme Disease, and it has seriously affected them neurologically. IIRC, there’s no cure; all the doctors can do is manage your symptoms, and it can disable you to the point that you can’t work (or do much else). I’m really sorry to hear the Joe Wilson has this.
Regarding my statement that there’s no cure, I’ve learned from the other posts in this thread that it IS curable if it’s caught very early. I’m glad to know that.
Amazing story, also informative and valuable.
I am out mowing and trimming nearly constantly from spring until fall and you are the first to point out, to me at least, the imperative of a good once-over at day’s end.
Rep Wilson doesn’t have a Twitter Account ... but I tweeted John Boehner and Eric Cantor asking them to extend our prayers to him.
Rep Joe Wilson has been justified many times over ... God Bless and Heal him.
A friend got it twice, and among relatives several have gotten it, some more than once. Also a good friend’s son got it very badly and it was misdiagnosed. All eventually got well, but with the friend’s son it took a long, long time.
It really needs to be attended to immediately, and not all ticks infected with Lyme’s make the bullseye ring, unfortunately. Any tick bite (the small deer ticks that carry it, not the big regular ticks) should be treated as potentential Lyme’s, if a person lives in an area with a lot of it.
Prayers up for him and his family.
Does anyone think Hussein looks over his shoulder, and wonders if his next unconstitutional act will get him impeached and convicted? No, the practical power of impeachment no longer exists.
The Framers gave us a nonviolent means of removing oppressors. Instead of storming the White House and doing nasty things to Him and his ministers, we are supposed to calmly remove Him from office. That is no longer possible.
Prayers to Congressman Wilson.
Prayer for complete healing for Joe and your dad!
Prayers up for a gutsy man.
Get well soon.

And yet wouldn't you think with the history in this country of assassinations and attempted assassinations that he would at least hesitate just a little?
Our Secret Service professionals are incredible.
Imagine being paid to stop a bullet for . . .
I believe that you pretty well nailed it.
What you said was as true then as it is now and ever will be. The Fraud in Chief is a liar who needs to be perp walked out of our house and into a jail cell..
Have a fast, easy and complete recovery....
