Wilson's shout was an embarrassment

  • Follow Letters

I guess since South Carolina has a lying philanderer for a governor, it's OK to have a congressman who can't control his lips, or his hatred.

Calling the president a liar during a joint session of Congress before the entire world sure does great for South Carolina. I'm just glad he wasn't armed, like the NRA thinks he and everyone else has a right to be anywhere, anyplace. Folks, this is what happens when you lie, lie and lie so much and so often that you lose sight of what's good for the American people. I'm embarrassed for the people in this part of the country.

Since your Republican representatives won't debate the issue, or work to find the answer to health care, it looks like maybe you and your representatives are plain and simple bigots. Shame on you for putting such people in office.

Harry Luden

Martinez

Shame on POTUS for standing

Shame on POTUS for standing before Congress and the American people with a "bill" that lacks definitions. But of course, the yet to be appointed Commissioner will provide definitions after passage of the bill. Decorum has disappeared from both sides of the podium. Personally, I salute Joe Wilson, and I am not from S.C.

Good one, lonelygrouse! Joe

Good one, lonelygrouse! Joe the Rep has done more for healthcare than any other Republican. In South Carolina, where narrow minds, big mouths and ignorant mobs get the votes, Joe's just another one-man clown hall meeting.

Joe Wilson and Rick Santelli

Joe Wilson and Rick Santelli are the Paul Revere's of today. I swear to God, I thought this line in the letter was about Obama: "Folks, this is what happens when you lie, lie and lie so much and so often that you lose sight of what's good for the American people."

Wilson voted to provide

Wilson voted to provide federal funds for illegal immigrants' healthcare. The vote came on the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act of 2003, which contained Sec. 1011 authorizing $250,000 annually between 2003 and 2008 for government reimbursements to hospitals who provide treatment for uninsured illegal immigrants. The program has been extended through 2009 and there is currently a bipartisan bill in Congress to make it permanent.

Mr. Luden, as far as manners, what Wilson did was no more than a cough. He should have just coughed a loud "BS."

Unpublished

Wilson is connected with a group who preach white supremacy and overthrowing the government from his state. This is a legitimate nut who have been exposed. Any supporter is probably a closet racist and whose behavior should be suspect. Wilson should be tested for drugs and investigated for plotting against the US government. These kind of hillbillies are a disgrace to the Union and come election the People will inform his kind. He can go back to the trailer park and act as ignorant as he wants.

How in the word can anyone

How in the word can anyone say the Republicans won't "debate the issue or "work to find answers"? How do you respond to someone so uninformed? Where does the dialog begin with people like Luden?

Unpublished

Joe Wilson is being criminalized by the left. What would you expect. We have the most corrupt administration in modern history and they expect the undying respect of all. Hell, George Bush suffered more insults and nastier insults and you didn't hear a peep out of the left leaning media.

The fact is that the POTUS

The fact is that the POTUS was lying on national TV. In the Immigration laws say it is illegal to employ illegal aliens. The 12-25 million flock to the US and stay here because the laws are not enforced. All in Congress and the Executive know that a law is only "real" if it is enforced. Obama's Attorney General and his 37 czars have no intention of enforcing laws against minorities - legal or illegal.

Warnin: Actually to be

Warnin: Actually to be criminalized would require criminal accusations, and that is far from the truth...You could argue he is being demonized, but not criminalized...The truth si he has recieving just as much criticism from his fellow republicans as he has from the "left"...Get it right.. A fool utters all his or her thoughts, and so by his own words he put himself in this position, so don't start playing victim for him...Everybody is a victim nowadays! The arguement that Bush got criticized and the left media didn't say a peep is a lie, or should I say "you lie"!! GWB got two rank shoes thrown at him in Iraq, and that [filtered word] me off just as much as Wilson's comments...When I saw GWB get those two shoes thrown at him by an Iraq reporter who would have never threw shoes at Saddam I said to myself it's time for us to come home from Iraq because they definitely have freedom now! Too much freedom like us!

prezbho calls anyone that

prezbho calls anyone that disagrees liars and says he's going to 'call out' those disagreeing and there's not a peep from his fawning followers. Wilson said the truth and libs wet all over themselves trying to attack Wilson. prezbho 'calls out' the police in the Gates case (without any facts) and libs defend his freedom of speech. Any cinc that handles himself that way, isn't someone that should be making decisions for our great country. All this is another diversion for prezbho.

How many of those 12-25

How many of those 12-25 million,crossed the border in 2009?
The illeagal's are sitting back, lauging all the way to th ER. Don't you republicans, know that they do not have to be covered by, the healthcare program. When they get sick,and everybody get sick some time, they do what they have always done, they go to th ER. It is against the law to turn someone away!You are all ready paying for thier healthcare!!So when the president say they will not be covered under this healthplan,why should they be ,when they already have it!!! And they had it way before President Obama!!!

Conan and Letterman don't claim jokes justthe, but the Depends on Fire is mine. I was sending that one out to all you Depends Packers who attend clown hall meetings and soc hops (which, by the way, is also unbecoming). But seriously, I am grateful for Joe. In two words, he did more to help this country get closer to universal healthcare than all the conservative gasbags put together. The world got to see how small and venal the opposition really is. Whoah, it's nearly 9:30. You kids have fun and please don't stick any dried blackeyed peas up your noses while I'm gone.

Please tell us what group

Please tell us what group Wilson is connected with "who preach white supremacy and overthrowing the government from his state". No facts from libs just their same-o rhetoric with no substance. When libs can't discuss the issues they automatically accuse and attack anyone that disagrees with 'the annointed one'. And of course they must be racist and haters. Nice way to divert away from the actual fact that prezbho/teleprompter is arrogant and incompetent.

What if what Joe Wilson said

What if what Joe Wilson said is the truth. Has anyone ever got fed up with not being told the truth?? This is what Obumbler has done to Washington. Obumbler and his crooked Chicago cronies are trying to install the deny and lie style politics in the U.S. government and people like Joe Wilson ain't going for it.
