    House plans to admonish Rep. Wilson over insult

    House plans to admonish Rep. Wilson over insult - Yahoo! News

    Associated Press Writers 2 hrs 13 mins ago

    Democratic leaders are planning a House vote early next week on whether to admonish Republican Rep. Joe Wilson if he does not apologize on the House floor for yelling "You lie!" during President Barack Obama's health care address.

    Brendan Daly, a spokesman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, said Friday that party leaders decided they will likely move forward with a resolution of disapproval against Wilson if he doesn't apologize to Congress.
    Sometimes my party pisses me off. There is no reason to do this, no point to it, and is just a waste of time.

    No need to admonish anyone. That time can be spent on much more important things.

    Wilson Faces House Vote

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) "has agreed the House should vote next week on scolding Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) for his outburst during President Obama's speech unless he apologies on the floor of the House," The Hill reports.

    Said a spokesman: "There was a violation of the rules of the House. It needs to be resolved by an apology or a resolution."

    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) will likely introduce a "resolution of disapproval" Monday or Tuesday unless Wilson formally apologizes on the House floor. The House returns Monday.

    From the linked 'Hill' article:

    "It is against House rules to impugn the integrity of the president when speaking on the floor or in committee meetings."


    Wilson SHOULD apologize on the floor of the House. Failing that, a vote is completely appropriate.

    Nevermind that Wilson was factually correct and the Dem Congress had voted the "SAVE" provisions off the bill so there was no legal way to determine residency prior to delivering care.

    He apologized to Obama, why does Congress think it needs its own apology? This just sounds childish... "You better say you're sorry!"

    Ugh. So what's the real reason for this since we know they really could care less about an apology?

    No it's not...

    It will successfully keep people focused on that incident, so they don't focus on what the president actually said about the health care plan.

    I mean when have our representatives in Washington ever put the issues above partisan politics?

    I was about to say "nobody's going to want to focus on that stupid incident" then I had the "a-ha" moment realizing that here I am... discussing that stupid incident, lol.

    Ya, it would be much better to just let it drop.
