    Re: House plans to admonish Rep. Wilson over insult

    Wilson apologized to the president and the president could have had the Sgt. at arms remove him from the house after the out burst but he felt it wasn't necessary.

    The rest of the congress needs to do what the president did and let this go.

    What's so hard to comprehend ?

    Are you angry that "THE THING" covers whatever little semantics bait n switch terminology ploy you were going to attempt ?

    Are you angry that everyone knows this happened on Wednesday, and is already a factual occurance six days in the past ?

Oh and don't forget that the Republicans could have stop those Adm. from being part of the Bill since they don't have enough folks to fillerbust the Adms. But see Pogue you already know this fact so why keep saying that they would never had made it out of Comm.
    Correlation does not mean causation. What amendment are you takling about now? Everyone was talking about the save provisions which they say were put in not taken out. So which amendments are you saying were removed. Again who is to say what would have been in the bill until the finalized bill made it out of committee.

    Lol you just keep going on and on without being able to prove its a lie. Its obviously hard for you to comprehend that in order for something to be a lie it actually has to be proven. Now you're trying to redefine the dictionary definition of a lie. I'm not angry at all it just seems you keep dancing around and moving the goalposts.

    I'm sorry but when in the past 6 days did illegals get health care coverage under this draft bill? Until that happens your statement that he lied rings pants on fire false

You know what happens to employees who lie to me?
    he "called out the president"? they weren't on a freaking playground.

    That's pretty much all Washington is.

    And yeah, called out might offend your tender sensibilities but that's exactly what he did. He brought a storm of attention to it...the wrong way, granted, but still...that's what he did.

    I don't suppose they'll impeach Obama for lying then.

    And you just keep making up new terms for "THE THING" and wishing you could invent a time machine.

    The administartion backed down and agreed to put the immigration status checking / SAVE provisions into the bill because Joe Wilson called him out on his false statements.

    His false statements amounted to making a claim about the legislation that he knew the legislation had no enforcement mechanism for.

    Can you dance to a beat that fast ?
