    While I don't agree with what he did I think the media coverage is a bit overblown. If you recall the Dems booed Bush during the last two State of Union speeches he gave. The difference here is that his fellow GOP members have the respect to tell him he was wrong where the Dems as a whole heckled Bush.

    Excellent points Tommy

    The other thing is that Rep Wilson immediately apoligized withouth anyone demanding him to do so....

    Re: Joe Wilson Heckles Obama

    I saw that part but couldnt make out that was said. Did see the Obama evil eye though LOL

    Tom good point.

    I personally think the guy has mild Tourette's, hence the apology.
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    OMG! Did you see the look on Nancy's face? She was ready to jump out of her seat and pluck his eyes out. Obama's look was pretty feirce too.

    Overall I don't think this helped or hurt the cause of health care reform. If anything it shows how hot this topic is. My concern is that the Dems and Obama know that if they don't pass "something" its going to be their demise for the next election. Which could mean they pass something totally meaningless to the nation.

    Yeah Nancy was furious back there!

    I agree with you about them having to pass "something" I think if he doesn't get this health care plan through his chances for reelection are going to take a huge hit.

    Also, Obama held his hand, as if to respond....but held his composure and kept it classy.

    I won't give Wilson too much credit for his apology, because he knew he was in the wrong because fellow R's were booing him on the spot as well.

    Yeah Obama did hold his composure up there..

    I agree with you about the apology. I don't think he meant it, it was just something he knew he had to do.

    Obama didn't have much choice. He doesn't exactly have the option to get all ghetto on Wilson.


    But if Obama did respond accordingly, I would have thoroughly enjoyed it....

    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...

    The guy running the teleprompter was immediately fired for not coming up with an appropriate response for Obama to deliver.

    Decorum shmeckorum. Not saying we should be like Europe, but don't most Parliaments hoot and hollar at the PM when he/she delivers a speech? I think that might be a good thing.

    I think decorum is all we have left before Chinese-style riots start.
