Apparently, Joe Wilson hasn’t received enough attention. He was asked by the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, to formally apologize on the House floor or feel the wrath.
Well, he’s ready to take whatever she’s dishing out because according to him, when he comes in the “House” it won’t be to apologize to his colleagues or the President for his outburst. According to Wilson, one apology is enough.
Wilson’s real problem is that he’s in denial about being wrong. His outburst came when he said that the President was lying about illegal aliens being insured under the new health care reform plan. Well section 246 on No Federal Payment for Undocumented Aliens clearly states there is no funding for illegals right there in the title.
The other problem of denial that has been mentioned by the media to White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, is that people are still having a problem with the President’s skin color. Of course Wilson skirts the issue with the ol’ “I have had blacks over to my house. I have black friends, look I lived next door to Michelle Obama and her family” defense. But, something has to be wrong with the level of respect for the President when something like this occurs.
Surely, Bush or other past Presidents have said something to incense someone and no one, including Wilson, has had the audacity to belt out something in a derogative outrage.
Check out this fantastic interview given on Fox. Wilson, in your own words, YOU LIE!
