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 ?

September 9, 2009
Wilson apologizes: 'I let my emotions get the best of me'
Posted: September 9th, 2009 10:23 PM ET
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 person...

MORE Revelations from Raw
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.

Forgotten in the Joe "It's a Lie" Wilson outburst has been the fact that Louie Gohmert wore a sign around his neck the entire speech that said "What Bill?"

Rep. Louis Gohmert (Tex.) waved at Obama a handwritten poster he made on a letter-size piece of paper: "WHAT PLAN?" Gohmert then took that down and replaced it with another handmade poster that said "WHAT BILL?"

Gohmert is a former Judge - God bless Texas - Imagine what he would have done if somebody wore a sign that said "What Law?" into his courtroom. He would have held them in contempt.

go to about 1:07 - 1:09 and you will see Gohmert

We should not expect anything less from Gohmert who signed up as a co-sponsor on The Birther Bill - . A day after the anti-birther bill was passed at that. So perhaps that is the What Bill he was talking about. One can only speculate at this point.

Buddy - This is not a minor league baseball game. This is not nap time. This is not a townhall. This is not an interview with Alex Jones. You are a Congressman. Act like it. btw - your stupid sign caught my attention well before the yell.

No Gohmert - A public option is not going to absolutely kill seniors as you proclaimed. No health care reform is not like putting condom on wild horses like you proclaimed.

Elementary and middle school kids could behave yesterday, why couldn't Congressmen show some class and hush up during a speech by the POTUS. You have a right to disagree and vote against health care reform. But to disrespect the President during a speech with a sign around your neck is just tasteless and classless.

What should we do about Gohmert?

The "You Lie" moment was straight out of the Town Halls where every time a congressperson or pro-health reform person tried to respond they were greeted with yells of "liar", "you're lying", etc.

Seems like Wilson thought he was at another Town Hall meeting instead of a Joint Session of Congress being addressed by his president.

I don't know what to think of the guy with the sign or those people holding up papers. They seem to think they have a health reform bill to offer. If so, let them present it and see if it gets out of committee.

ps, I got the biggest kick watching Cantor's face. Boehner, too.

Personally I saw a lit of puckered up assholes in the room but I also saw very little balls at the podium. The democrats won the legislature and with it the responsibility to get this shit done and done in a way that no American is ever again nothing more than a profit stream.

Although I DO give the president points for saying (between the lines) he was wanted the health care industry regulated and taxed.

The rethugs were expecting the President to ask what their solution was to the Health Care was.. as he did in the Union speech the other day.. They all had papers in their hand... That's why he had a sign that said "What Bill" because there is no one bill from the Democrats, and there really is no bill from the rethugs... but that's the explanation about the signs and papers from teh asswipes on the right side of the aisle.

Joe Wilson, sad that the crazies are in the house......
It seems this southern racist is also a member of sons of the confederacy, well THAT was a surprise
The big problem is that these crazy liars are not able to understand that they lost an election by 6 million that unlike bush, there was no stolen election....
Obama rose above it all good on him!
