South Carolina rep named Joe Wilson shouted out “You lie” during President Obama’s health care speech to Congress on Wednesday. The incident was, as obvious, taken very seriously and other Republicans were put to shame. As Rep. Earl Pomeroy said,
I’ve never seen anything like that before, We do not invite the president of the United States into the House of Representatives and hurl insults.
At the end, Wilson apologized to the press saying,
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.
But its not for the first time that Wilson hurled comments at a democrat prez. 2004 Democratic presidential nominee John F. Kerry was a near victim too.
While the incident did perturb Obama a little, but at the end of the day, it was the house of Congress that is to be asked questions of such silly outbursts even thought they call it an exception. When you have that much power and responsibility, you can not make mistakes sir.
