Republicans Really Are … What Van Jones Said (Video/Audio)

Biden, Obama, Pelosi react to Joe Wilson's outburst
Biden, Obama, Pelosi react to Joe Wilson's outburst

It looks like former Obama adviser Van Jones was right about the Republicans when he called them “assholes.”

The evidence was on display for the WORLD to see last night when South Carolina Republican and Congressman, Joe Wilson, shouted “you lie” during President Obama’s speech on health care reform to Congress.  The outburst was a reaction to the President when he said his plan would not pay for healthcare for illegal immigrants.

Wilson’s outburst drew a rebuke from Obama’s presidential opponent, Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.).  McCain called his remark “totally disrespectful, no place for it and he should apologize.” Various House Democrats demanded the same. One Democrat said that Wilson’s actions may have violated House rules. Good call Senator McCain. We’ll strike you from the a-hole list. At least for now.

For the record, Congressman Wilson has apologized, but the question has to be asked: Why did he blatantly disrespect the President of the United States? He says he let his emotions get the best of him. Uh, yeah, you sure did.

For what it’s worth, here’s the four-term South Carolina Republican’s full apology:

“This evening I let my emotions get the best of me when listening to the President’s remarks regarding the coverage of illegal immigrants in the health care bill. 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.”

Apology aside, as an elected official, it makes you wonder what would drive Wilson to make such an inappropriate, stupid, classless and, again, disrespectful comment to the President of the United States in front of the world. Maybe it’s because that’s what “assholes” do.

We also did some digging and found out that non-partisan organization FactCheck.org has debunked Wilson and the Republican’s claim that health care reform would mandate coverage for illegal immigrants.

But don’t be surprised when Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Steele and all the other like-minded Republicans come to the defense of this jerk and try to make him a hero. But what else would you expect from … “assholes?”

If you didn’t see it or hear (about) it, here it is:

  1. you know azzholes just love to show themselves whenever anything positive the President is trying to do to help this country. it is the nature of the beasts. azzhole are not a rare specis, there are millions of them! everywhere, anywhere. you can tell an azzhole by the stupid remarks they say. you can deal with azzholes two ways: you can either walk away in the mist of their stupid rambling or you can SMACK THEIR STUPID AZZES UPSIDE THE HEAD!! simply because they are really asking for it. so, you just do them the honor of that special present they most rightly deserve. A MAJOR BEATDOWN!! at least, that is what i would give them. *smile politely and curtsey*

  2. i don’t care if he did apologize…that was totally uncalled for! he can disagree all he wants (this is america, right?) but there is a certain amount of respect that is owed to the president of the united states and you’d think a man with as much military service as wilson would know and remember that!
