House to Discipline Wilson for 'You Lie!' Outburst (Democrat hypocrites run amuck)
fox news ^ | 9/15/2009 | Chad Pergram

Posted on 09/15/2009 3:37:39 AM PDT by tobyhill

The House Democratic leadership has decided to bring a "resolution of disapproval" Tuesday afternoon against Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) for his jeer last week at President Obama during a Joint Session of Congress.

Wilson bellowed "You lie!" at Obama during his address. It's against House rules to call the president a "liar" or accuse him of "lying" when the House is in session.

"We're not the British parliament for a reason," said Kristie Greco, spokeswoman for House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC)."Ignoring the issue sets a precedent for bad behavior."

I hope Rep. Wilson points this out. But heck, am official seal of disapproval from the Democrat party? I'd be wearing that like a badge of honor.

This is what the Republicans get for playing nice for the first 6 years under President Bush. They better learn to fight back or they’re going in the way of the Whigs.

A racist demagogue's mouthpiece talking about setting precedent for bad behavior? How precious.

Can’t say I’m surprised. We now live in a world where brave, truthful and honest folks are crucified and liars, cheaters and thieves are elevated to the highest offices in the country.

War is Peace

Freedom is Slavery

Ignorance is Power

Minipax

Miniplenty

Minitrue

Miniluv

I, for one, won’t die peacefully in a world such as this and I’ll bet most Freepers are of the same mind.

Well that's true. If an MP lies to the British Parliament and is caught in the lie, he is finished.

What, no discipline for Rahm Emanuel, running up and down rows waving his finger under the noses of Congresspersons, screaming and spitting saliva in his anger into their faces? Now there’s someone who should be censured for rudeness!!! And if Maureen Dowd can “investigate” and “discover” that Joe Wilson is a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, why can’t she “discover” where our President was born and who these thugs are with whom he associates?

I think watching Parliament on C-Span is a hoot - especially, though, because we don’t have to live under their policies.

Given the behavior of the DemonRAT corruption machine over the last decade or two, both in Congress and in front of the media microphones, their panties knotted in a bunch posturing over “decorum” makes me laugh. I intend to donate to Joe's campaign funds. If he stands on the floor and tells the Speaker to FU, I'll double my contribution.

Yet the same House who will bring a resolution against Rep Joe Wilson for merely say two words, will not and never did bring a resolution against Charlie Rangel or Rep. William Jefferson, the Louisiana Democrat who had $90,000 in payoff cash in his freezer.

You people dont understand: There is a rule against calling the Kenyan a liar, but there is no rule against stealing from the American people by not paying taxes or by giving your family jobs and government contracts, or by stealing from Ssamoans by not including them in minimum wage laws.

Being censured by this Democrat pack of Jackals is a badge of honor.

I've been thinking about what Joe Wilson did quite a bit for the last week. I agree with what Joe did and why he did it. That doesn't mean that I haven't had plenty of thoughts of what this now means for all Presidential addresses in the future. If Joe's outburst had happened during a State of the Union Address, I would probably have a bit different feeling about it. During a State of the Union Address, the President's Office deserves the respect of all those in attendance to sit there politely and let the President have that event. Last week's address was not a State of the Union Address. It was a sales pitch to Congress and the public. If ever there was a time for Congress to interact with the President and challenge his rhetoric, I couldn't think of better place and time for it. If President feels it is so important to sell us on something, then it should be allowed to turn into an organized debate. Maybe America needs a new form of dialog with the President, but only if the President wants to appear before Congress in a fair and open debate on whatever the issue is. If a President feels so strongly about something, this would not only be his chance, but a great chance for the opposition to debate him on it. Like I said, I've been thinking about what happened.

Hve you re-watched videos of George Bush’s State of the Union addresses??? And heard the boos and seen the behavior of the entire democrat party? Did you see Hillary Clinton smirking and nodding her head when George Bush talked about defeating al Qaeda? The democrats booing when Bush talked about saving social security? Do you remember the hearings when democrat staffers sneaked the crazy code pinks into the Chamber to run amok?

And Pelosi’s winged monkeys want to lecture anyone about maintaining the “decorum” of the House?

My post deserves another read by you. I watched all of President Bush's addresses to Congress when they happened and remember the behavior of the left side of the aisle. I remember them booing so badly once that they had to applaud themselves. One of Congress's most creepy moments. I also remember last week hearing the right side of the aisle mummer and boo right before Wilson's outburst. There have always been mummers and boos when a controversial President is speaking about sensitive issues. I understand all that. The point I'm trying to make is that Congress, especially the minority needs a chance to debate the President whenever the President is there to speak and sell a Bill that is being hotly debated. In this case, invited by the party in power. In a case such as this, I would propose that the minority opposition be the only group that can stand and question any part of the President's address and that the party in majority would have to keep their mouths shut, since they have the President speaking for them. The numbers of Senators or Congressmen that can stand and take issue would have to be worked out.

They’re still trying to “play nice,” both in media interviews and on FR where they’re insisting Wilson was somehow “boorish” for pointing out the obvious in Obama’s speech. Personally, I call it courageous.

House to Discipline Wilson

Can we be serious for a moment?

Would not the best, and I mean best in the most literal sense, greatest, most satisfactory, and surpassing all others, way for such an august body as our House of Representatives to discipline Joe Wilson for his rude outburst be to demand than he prove his assertion that the President lied?

What else could be fairer to the President, to the Congress, and to the nation than to learn the truth; did President Obama lie?

Membership on committees is voted on by the conference/caucus, I don't know of any standing rule that a letter of reprimand hurts re: committee assignment. I think censure includes a ban on speaking on the Floor for a determined amount of time, as I've said on another thread, it may be restrictive but not unbearable, only look to Barney Frank.

You make a fair point, however, the Constitution provides for each House to determine the Rules of its Proceedings and that they may punish its Members for disorderly Behavior. While exchange between the president and Congress would be a valid exercise, calling the president a liar has already been made a rule punishable, even if it weren't, to shout out the way Wilson did, emotion, heat of the moment, was indeed disorderly behavior.

The Dems hyping this not only expose their own hypocrisy but that of some GOP members, those who did NOT rebuke Democrats who behaved in a disorderly manner their own selves, called G.W. Bush a liar on the Floor time and time again. Why they did not, they will have to answer, I cannot, other than to observe yet again that they really do not know how to play the game of politics.

Q. How many times must a Republican apologize for (fill in the blank)?
A. As many times as the RATs tell him/her to. And then he/she must resign.
Q. How many times must a RAT apologize for (fill in the blank)?
A. NOT ONCE — NEVER — EVER. And then keep his/her position or be promoted to a higher position with more perks and more pay.
