    Obama lied, ON WEDNESDAY, about what was or was not in "THE THING" on WEDNESDAY.

    No semantic antics, no time-travel, no escape for you.

    Re: House plans to admonish Rep. Wilson over insult

    Under Section 370 of the House Rules and Manual it appears that it is against the House rules to call the President a "liar", among other things. House Resolution 5 confirmed that these rules remained in effect for the 111th Congress, so Wilson clearly broke that rule. Interestingly, if a Senator had done it, it would not have actually violated any rule.

    That said, the House ought to uphold its rules, no matter what the other issues surrounding the debate are, but they need to move on from this issue.

    He didn't lie. He talked about his health reform efforts which have not come to fruition. He talked about how the opposition was saying his efforts would insure illegal aliens. Thus far no illegal aliens have been insured under his efforts thus making you the liar. You can swear up and down from here until forever but you can't change the english definition of the word lie no matter how much you pretend. You're wrong and continue to look foolish as you cannot prove this supposed lie.

    The sgt. at arms is to enforce the house rules, and when they are broken he can take action. At the time, President Obama was addressing the floor and he could have easily signaled the sgt. at arms to remove Wilson from the room (since Wilson was breaking house rules). It doesn't mean he is the president's servant or something...
