    Wilson apologizes: 'I let my emotions get the best of me'

    “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.”
    For those who stood up and supported Joe Wilson's outburst, your legs have just been taken out from under you by Joe Wilson himself. As for Wilson himself, although there is no excuse for such an outburst in the chambers of Congress, it takes a big man to do the right thing and apologize. Your apology is personally noted by me, and you have my appreciation and respect. Now lets all get back to business and forget about....... Hmmm, what did Wilson say? I forget. Yea, that's the ticket.

    NOTE: To err is human, but to be a real douchebag takes a Congressman. Joe Wilson just showed that he is human like the rest of us, so give him a break, folks. Today, he did good.

    No, whoever told Rep. Wilson to go and kiss Obama's ass, If I were him, I would have told him to KISS MINE!!!. Rep. Wilson had the balls to stand up to Der Komissar.

    No, Wilson had the balls to man up and take responsibility for his actions. You do NOT disrupt the President's speech. If you strongly disagree, you sit on your hands while others are standing. Wilson broke the long standing decorum of the Congressional chamber with his outburst, but once more, he has apologized, and deserves a break. I am sure that the last thing Wilson wants to hear right now are blow hards who dare to call him a wimp for doing the right thing.

    I am so disgusted with our government that this doesn't bother me in the least. They're all liars. They're all pieces of crap. Let them slit each other's throats for all I care...

    People, people, people!

    Mr. Wilson did NOT apologize for WHAT he said, only for the venue in which he said it. Read his apology again.

    Besides that, we all know that only Democrats have mainline media permission, nay, encouragement, to call a sitting President a liar. Namely, Mr. Bush.

    It was NOT the proper venue for this outburst but it is something that needed to be said.

    The President is either a liar or he is ignorant.

    If the President knows what is in these Bills and said that illegals are not covered, then he is a liar.

    If the President said that illegals are not covered because he doesn't know what is in these bills, then he is ignorant.

    Pick one.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    I could say "I'm glad he apologized", but it is standard practice to do so. I'm sure the man feels quite embarrassed over his behavior (especially after the backlash), but it is a little sterile. I also do not expect more from the guy, because while it was rude, a simple apology is good enough for this small moment of egotistical outburst.

    Great! Be discussed. Vote every incumbent, be they "R" or "D" out of office in NOV 2010.


    Hope.
    NOV 2010.
    Yes we can.
