"You Lie!": Rep. Joe Wilson Shouts to Obama during Speech
http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2009/09/09/gop-rep-joe-wilson-presidential-heckler/ ^

Posted on 09/09/2009 7:08:24 PM PDT by quesney

President Barack Obama’s address to Congress this evening was moving along fairly smoothly until he pledged that there was nothing in the legislation that would provide health care to the millions of illegal immigrants residing in the nation.

A cry of “You lie!” was audible from the Republican side of the aisle. The Associated Press reports that the heckler was South Carolina Republican Rep. Joe Wilson.

“It’s not true,” the president responded to the outburst, while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, seated behind the president, offered her mother-of-five glare towards the Republican side of the chamber. First Lady Michelle Obama was seen shaking her head from side to side.

While lawmakers may have become accustomed to that kind of language during the contentious town hall meetings in August, Wilson’s outburst was uncommon for a joint session of Congress, where decorum usually reigns.

A spokesman for Wilson did not immediately return a request for comment.

He joins a growing list. Most recently black economist extraordinaire Thomas Sowell:

No guesses?

Proof that the Chrysler and GM dealers closed was political, determined by political contributions?

Valerie Jarrett's name is out there. There's already been one video with her, where she raves about Van Jones, saying we've been following his career for quite awhile. Could be.

Beck wants to go after other radicals in the White House.

That is why it is absolutely critical we support him.

Even if the weak-stomached among us disagree with an ill-timed outburst, and there were collective outbursts around his, there is a much bigger picture we need to consider.

This is no time to ‘punish’ one of ours, folks. Not now, please.

Hey everyone, leave Joe some positive feedback on his facebook page. He is getting bombarded by liberals! Show your support!

I'm with an earlier poster. send Joe a donation. The libs can't take money away. It talks louder than anything they can say.

...a liar needs to be confronted when he blatantly commits it. Did the Ø not receive numerous standing ovations in support of his lies? People are hungry for a courageous voice that will stand up to all this bilge. I think we'll find the effect of this outburst to be refreshing.

UPDATE 10:33 p.m.: Wilson apologizes in a statement: “This evening I let my emotions get the best of me when listening to the president’s remarks regarding the coverage of illegal immigrants in the health care bill. While I disagree with the president’s statement, my comments were inappropriate and regrettable. I extend sincere apologies to the president for this lack of civility.”

Notwithstanding your apology Joe, let me echo your truth: Mr President: YOU LIE!

I hate to say this, because I know Mr. Wilson is speaking the truth, but this is only going to make the GOP look bad.

Obama started his speech by calling every Republican a liar and they all sat there and let him do it. The republicans ALWAYS look bad, no matter what they do.

Joe Wilson made me proud! The GOP does not speak for me, they won't stand up to the liar in chief. Joe Wilson did.

Yeah, he did make the GOP look bad. There should have been a round of applause from the right side of the chamber when he said it. There wasn't. So the GOP looked bad. Shame on the GOP for not booing when Obama called them all liars and for not cheering when Joe Wilson called Obama a liar.

No, what has made the GOP "look bad" is for them to sit by and allow the left to get away with telling lies.

The POTUS was standing there calling our side liars. If it's ok for him to make those charges in that place, then it is certainly ok for Congressman Wilson to call him on his lies.

If he wants to call the President a liar, he should have held a press conference outlining the exact wording (or lack thereof) to show the inclusion of illegals in it. Now, it makes him and the GOP look bad and the media is going to continue to support the Zero and use this against dissenters.


BULLSHIT.

The GOP already looks 'bad' thanks to the RINO-virus that has infected it since 2004 (I'm being charitable to the first term of GWB), If Joe Wilson had called a 'press conference' as you suggest, NOBODY would have paid him any mind, and furthermore the Ministry of 0manunist Information (aka the 'media' you speak of) ALREADY supports 0bama and is against 'dissenters'!

Wake up Sparky, and smell the damn coffee!

Hey, B'rack? Yeah, YOU, ya babblin' Marxist parrot!

Jail is pretty damning. Who might be goin’ to jail is up for grabs. Under the bus we have become familiar with but not jail. This may not have anything to do w/Van Jones who was behind the boycott of Glenn. I haven’t been to Walmart since they quit Glenn.

Well on his show earlier he gave a real quick peek into whatever he’s hiding.

It was about a five second blip of a video that had a black woman on camera, her face was blurred out. There were other people in the room and someone with a camera.

It looked like someone sitting at some kind of interrogation table but that’s a guess. The blurry faced woman was sitting at a plain wooden table, I’ll say this.

Someone in the room said “You’ve got a client” and that was the end of it.

So it’s something actually caught in a video but neither I or anyone on the Glen Beck thread could fathom what it was all about.
