    You don't believe that exposing the president's closest advisor as a Soviet spy is important? I do, call me crazy.

    I will say this for Joe Wilson: He livened it up a bit. Was it childish and unprofessional? Of course. But it was pretty mild compared to the typical behavior of the British Parliament.

    How about section 370 of the House Rules and Manual.

    DECORUM IN THE HOUSE AND IN COMMITTEES

    It was just as, if not more, disrespectful what happened in 2005.

    Which is Un-Constitutional and if it was me I would inform the Leadership to go **** themself and if they didn't like that then I suggest to the Leadership would you care to walk over to the United States Supreme Court and let the Justice Decide this once and for all.

    Oh please show me in Article II Section 3 where is says that the President can't be heckled while he is making a speech to Congress.

    Article 1 section 5 states that: Each House may determine the rules of its proceedings, punish its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of two thirds, expel a member.

    So according to the constitution the house is allowed to make their rules that were posted by mckinney and their members are supposed to follow them

    Good god now you're going back to the 1st amendment again after accusing obama of violating it last night. What part of the house making rules in article 1 section 5 do you not understand?

    edit: Can a mod fix the subject title?

    But that si a directed violation of the 1st adm and needs to be sent to the US Supreme Court to be decide. Freedom of Speech trumps any rules that Article 1 Section 5 puts in place they must comply with the Bill of Rights.
