When the GOP decided to act like 3rd Graders at the Speech...
During the Speech tonight Some behaved badly, Joe Wilson in particular yelled out during the speech "YOU LIE", loudly, and clearly..I personally would have loved it if the Sargent of Arms had carted him out the door for Time Out, but that did not happen. In this clip watch Pelosi and Biden,they both are on it in second, Pelosi has a Stiletto in your eye stare, and Biden looks like the dissappointed Uncle. President Obama is unflappable, unwavering and Stern.
What can we say.....About the Asswipery behavior of the night, there was other bad behavior, including Bill Gohmert wore a sign around his neck " WHAT BILL?" ( hmmm he does not know about HR 3200 in the House? really?) One would think that in a serious Discussionm about Healthcare, only the Second Joint Session since 2001...that maybe everybody would take this Seriously ? ( do see Gohmert's sign 1:40 seconds in and also do see the LIE part of the video at around the same time).
Do watch this video- it is beautiful how President Obama makes it very clear he won't have the Elderly lied to or Scared or fearmongered at....awesome moment....( the MSM could learn a thing or 2 about the word LIE).
Consequences that Occurred after the speech::
(1) Well it turns out that Rob Miller is running against Joe Wilson in South Carolina, and within 3 hours of the Outburst,
40,000 was raised for Rob Miller's Campaign.
(2) Wilson did issue an apology of sorts, and he had to dance it around to few places...including Rahm and some other offices.but it was not Public,and he did not admit he was wrong- or lying- just that he was sorry he had an outburst. What a loser.
(3) Rep Joe Wilson is a Col in the US Army reserves. He can be court martialed for violation of Article 88 of the UCMJ.
Within Hours others were making shirts and donating money to #HCR and Joe's opponent, and
planning to wear them to Town Halls to meet and greet the Deathers and Birthers and they say "YOU LIE"
Want to contribute to Rob Miller Here is the Link- go for it,..
Or the Petition to sign, for Wilson to suffer some consequences- censure ?

WASHINGTON (CNN) — GOP Rep. Joe Wilson of South Carolina issued a statement Wednesday night apologizing for his outburst during President Obama's speech to Congress:
“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.”
The Morning After:::
Millers fundraising is up to over 100,000 from the incident, and all sorts of other fundraising has sprung from the event.
And here is the link to the article that Huffpo posted on it with thoughts from the Hill and his apology...cough.
Personally I agree with Clyburn...Wilson needs to man up and apologize to President Obama....in person...
MORE Revelations from Raw Story....here
So now we learn some of his hatred and bad behavior could be that he worked as an aide to Strom Thurmond- so maybe some of this is his training....but in the Raw Story post we also learn that he does lie and has a temper, and that he GOT HUGE CONTRIBUTIONS FROM THE INSURANCE INDUSTRY - THEY ARE HIS BIGGEST CONTRIBUTOR.
