Breitbart News recently reported that Mexican nationals and others were being enrolled at Mexican Consulates all over the United States. This now brings into the question if Rep. Joe Wilson (R -SC) who exclaimed in the House Chamber, "you lie, to President Barack Obama during the 2009 State of the Union when Obama remarked the health care bill would only cover American citizens, was the one who actually told the truth.
OBAMA: The reforms I'm proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally.
WILSON: You lie!
Rep. Wilson was later asked about his loud protest in the House Chamber during the State of the Union by Fox News Sunday's Chris Wallace:
WALLACE: What do you think when you see that?
WILSON: Well, I have respect for the president. I have respect for the office of the president. I would never do something like that again. But I...
WALLACE: But you did do it.
WILSON: Yes. And I -- I just felt so provoked because I am on committee, on the committee -- Education and Labor. I know the amendments that were on Ways and Means -- at Ways and Means and Energy and Commerce that the Democrats voted down for citizenship verification. So I knew what he said was not true. I read the bill. I read all 1,000 pages.

Joe was the first one to recognize what a liar obama is
I’ve often called for a fundraising effort to erect a statue “To the Last Correct Politician In Washington.”
Joe was right that day and it has never changed.
Righteous anger is a good thing. It is proclaiming truth courageously. Not something to apologize for.
By the way, speaking of apologies .... where were all of the other cowards on Ways & Means who knew Rep. Joe Wilson was right. Did they have his back?
Joe Wilson should be revered just as much as Rosa Parks, because both “spoke truth to power,” the phony mantra of the lying Democrats, who only honor that when THEY are not in power.
Joe Wilson wasn’t the first — just to the first elected official to articulate the truth about Obama. We all knew he was a liar here.
Joe Wilson has been a hero in this nightmare.
well you are right, the dude gave me the creeps from the beginning
Uncanny ... how two men of integrity had the exact same visceral and innate reaction ... to two different (but eerily similar as well) lies from the poseur-in-chief ...
Have an annual award, like the Oscars. Call it the Lincoln, present it to the politician who not only tells the truth but defends the Constitution.
Of course he is correct
But a shout down at SOUA might set poor precedent
Good idea !
Note to Republicans-get Joe Wilson back in the public eye to discuss this. This development should be a huge black eye for not only Obama, but the lame-stream media too!
“But a shout down at SOUA might set poor precedent.”
Yes a better precedent would be for every congressman to boycott it. It’s pure vain-glory meaninglessness.
I’ve heralded the idea forever here, but this country needs a Minister’s Questions hour like the Brits have. Our presidents and congress critters never have to face challenges or scrutiny unless one screws up; and not even then if he’s a demorat.
Vindicated for what? Everyone knows Obama is a liar, even the liars that claim Obama isn’t a liar!
