President Obama said in his speech Congress,

"If you misrepresent what's in the plan, we will call you out."

Well, evidently Congressman Joe Wilson was listening, as shown by his outburst during the speech. Obama falsely said illegal aliens would not be covered by his health plan, so Joe Wilson yelled "YOU LIE!" He had no reason to apologize... he did what his President said he should do.

Obama is lying about coverage for illegal aliens. Senator Boehner pointed out recently such coverage is not explicitly banned in both house and Senate versions and two amendments that would have explicitly banned it were voted down by Democrats in committee. If you don't ban them from participating in the coverage, then they are covered. Why would he lie about something so easily confirmed?

Obama's repeated "Read my lips" moments Obama promised in writing he would take only federal money for his presidential campaign. As soon as he realized it was inconvenient, he reneged.

Obama solemnly condemned earmarks and said there would be no more earmarks if he were elected. Then, he got elected and signed a $400 billion bill that was 100% earmarks.

He swore he would withdraw from Iraq and close Guantanamo as soon as he was inaugurated. He did neither.

Once, when called on one of his broken promises, he said it was ?just a campaign promise.? In other words, he is the boy who cried wolf when it comes to making promises or claiming there is a crisis. No one can trust him, not even his hardest core supporters.

Say what you want about Bush, at least you knew exactly where he stood.

All Obama has done is taken the media driven hot topics and melded them into speech after speech.

Were you fooled? Did you vote for this liar?

:sick:

You seem frantic.

Making excuses for Joe Wilson's behavior is vile and disgusting.  Republicans and Democrats alike were horrified by his unprofessional behavior toward the President.   Anyone who sees him as some kind of hero represents the worst of the Republican party, and what will doom it in the eyes of their fellow Americans.:(

Joe Wilson receives free health care for life courtesy of the government. ¿Yet he is adamantly opposed to government run health care.  Is that hypocrisy?

No excuse should have been made. Making one is vile and disgusting. No one except those that cristaned the holy one Obama were horrified. Those that think lies from our president should go unchecked represent the worst of America. America is doomed if it is governed by bold-faced liars.

Well Obama's plan has gone the way of the Dodo bird. It wont work.

He didn't

Oh you mean like the weapons of mass destruction that were NEVER  found. Like going into Iraq lookign for terrorists.

Or how about his famous statement in 2006 where he said that history will remember him as one of the greatest presidents?

The only thing vile here is you categorizing anyone who doesn't agree with you on this issue as the worst of anything, or even a part of the Republican party.

I agree with Wilson in that he is correct in that Obama was lying.  I don't think he owed any apology.  And I am a Democrat.  Unlike most Democrats (like yourself as it would seem), I don't blindly vote and follow the party.  I will call it out when it does something foolish, lies, or does anything else dishonorable.  Which sadly to say, seems to happen more and more often with the Democratic party.

Joe receives benefits as prescribed by law. If you don't like it, change the law.

Government run health-care is doomed to fail. the government does not posses the talent to run a project that encompasses 1/6 of our ecomomy.

Who do you think runs his health care.  Duh the government.

Calling the President a liar in an open session of Congress is disrespectful. However it most likely saved his life.  :).

It's not the lies, I expect that from our elected assclowns on both sides. It's the 'Shut up and drink the Kool-Aid ' moments I can do without.

Calling Obama a liar is an insult to professional liars everywhere. The teleprompter in Chief can't lie as long as the magic screens display his holy writ.  :).

That's funny cause when people spoke out against Bush and the wars they were called unpatriotic.  Now it is called "not drinking the kool aid".  Please.  :eyesroll:

What happened to the good 'ol days when our presidents banged hookers and interns, were able to keep it discreet, and it didnt become a public scandal, and they went around blowing large holes in other people's countries and were untouchable?
