OK, with everything congress SHOULD be dealing with - healthcare reform, cap and trade, war in Afghanastan, you know, the nations business - they instead choose to take up time on a resolution introduced in the House of Representatives to rebuke Joe Wilson for his outburst during wednesday nights Presidential address.

Yes, Congressman Joe Wilson was out of line, but COME ON !!!!!!!!!

1. He's already called and formerly apologized to President Obama. President Obama graciously accepted the apology.

2. This is pure partisan :poop:

3. Where was the apology from the democratic members of both houses that openly boo'd during Bushs addresses.

4. If disent can't be shown during a Presidential address, neither should approval through loud applause and standing ovations. Fair, right ?

5. Grow a set House Liberals.

As is well known around these parts, I am not a fan of Obaaaaama, but what Wilson pulled was totally outrageous, immature and disrespectful. No matter which side of the fence you're on politically, it was flat-out dead WRONG.

Yes it was wrong, but how many times does the guy need to apologize?

He apologized once in public and he apologized privately to the messiah him self and they still pull this b.s.

At it's worst, this was a slight of decorum. It was an emotion (you people are familiar with the term "emote". yes?) at the bull@#$% spewing forth from the unduly "elected" "POTUS". Wilson apologized. I wouldn't have. Move the @#$% along.

Its not like they have anything else important to do. What do you expect from a bunch of jackass's.

Yes, they clearly aren't focused on the "people's business"...

I'd rather they be doing this than thinking up new ways to piss on the Constitution.

Congressional gridlock is a beautiful thing. You don't want these er, um, representatives doing anything meaningful.

As is well known around these parts, I am not a fan of Obaaaaama, but what Wilson pulled was totally outrageous, immature and disrespectful. No matter which side of the fence you're on politically, it was flat-out dead WRONG.

You know I love you HTG, but bho doesn't command any respect.

bho was in the act of lying. Wilson called him on it. No foul.

Wilson was out of line for shouting, but I don't see ANYONE calling Democrats out over booing during the state of the union address in 2005(isn't that right Democrats?)

While I think Obaaaaaama is the biggest joke to ever hold office as POTUS and I slam him right and left on an internet BB, I would NEVER disrespect him or any past or future President like that in person. However, I might erupt in a series of uncontrollable coughs while he is speaking or flip him the bird under the seat in front of me. :chuckle:

Hey - all politicians lie don't they? :noidea:

To defend the way President Bush was treated, then condemn a like action toward Obama is hypocritical.

Me? I think the office of the Presidency should be treated with respect even if you don't like the guy. There is a time and a place for rebuttal, Wilson was out of line.

Respect the office...that's all.

But it IS interesting that the left did not for 8 years, but now suddenly demands that we all "do as they say, not as they did".

In a word: typical...

I find it VERY revealing that some of the same posters who said it was okay to boo Bush as he left office now are throwing the "hypocrisy" word around.

Since the VAST majority of people on the right are condemning what Wilson did....the fact that the left is now up in arms, doesnt allow them to use the "blanket of hypocrisy" in any way... other than to hide under.

since this is nothing more than a veiled attempt to single me out, i better set the record straight.

i find it very revealing that "some of the same posters [here on steelersfever.com] who said it was okay to boo Bush as he left office now are throwing the "hypocrisy" word around" dont actually exist and are just an exaggerated figment of so many peoples imagination. see what i did there? :wink02:

i have provided a link of the booing bush thread. in this thread of 210 posts, i would say atleast 40 are yours. for convinience, i have also provided the2 posts i added.

::laughing: j/k

i went to see bush campaign a few years back because presidents simply dont come to my town and i had never seen one in real life. i thought it was an honor, even though im not a fan. i woulda never thought about booing.

however i did laugh seeing that video and hearing all those people singing "na-na-na-na" as bush left on the copter. :chuckle:

hey, they sung it at that dudes funeral in "remember the titans" so it cant be that bad. :noidea:

http://forums.steelersfever.com/showthread.php?t=31950&highlight=bush&page=11

(an obvious attempt to make light of what was turning into a nasty thread, with the comparrisson and irony of singing the song at gary butiere's funeral)

wow, this thread sure took a turn for the better.



*BOOOOOOOO!!!* :chuckle:

:smoker:

(obviously making light that the thread had steered away from the nasty dialogue, and had escaped "the turn for the worse" course it was previously on.)

so who are "some" of the other posters in this thread who supposedly condoned the booing of bush and said it was okay, while hiding under a blanket of hypocricy?

:popcorn:

LLT, you know i am not going to sit back idle when my words are twisted like a rubix cube and tossed back into my face.

that type of gross misrepresentation just isnt right, but has become typical. ive got thick skin though, and couldnt give a sh.... beyond this post. :cool:

Yes, I do mean like the resolution that said "Resolved, that we the members of the Republican National Committee recognize that the Democratic Party is dedicated to restructuring American society along socialist ideals, . It was a waist of time - and I mean that - especially since we all already know it.

Just like we all know that hours after Joe Wilson shouted "you lie", he called the White House and apologized, and the President accepted his apology.

The Republicans politicized it just like the Democrats politicized the Joe Wilson incident.

Actually Tony...(You will just have to take my word for this)...but I wasnt thinking of you at all during that post.

If you thought I was directing an attack at you then I apologize for not being more clear as to what I was attempting to say. I will have to go back and take a look at the past posts to see what you are referring to, but the fact remains that I wasnt talking about you.

No twisting...no singling out...no exagerrating.....I think you have incorrectly mentally linked my post to one of yours.
