    Well if making that hollow threat isn't fear-mongering I don't know what is.

    Good Job Rosen

    I wonder if Rosen is proud of this roundabout extortion attempt or condemns it.

    I was thinking that he matter should be dropped Wednesday night (after the incident) & no further action was warranted....BUT...based of the jerk's (Wilson's) actions since that night, I'd like to see Pelosi throw the book at him. Pull any committee assignments &..... in general make his life as miserable as possible in the House.

    The people of SC voted him in, and he represents them. I guess you don't believe they deserve equal representation in the federal govt. I'm sure that's exactly what the Founders had envisioned, a raisin-dried bitch determining the representation of each state. You think about that.

    The very fact that they voted him in PROVES that they should have no voice in the affairs of this nation.

    OK.............I thought about it....Yup...I'll take the "raisin-dried bitch" 's determination any day.
    (plus Joe Wilson is through as a Congressman in that state anyway......Just as soon as the next election throws him on his racist, idiot butt)

    Oh now you're charging him with racism? All because he told the President he was lying? You have lost all credibility pal.

    That goes triple for those who voted in the Senate drunk every six years.

    No.....Look into Wilson's background & his racist beliefs & affiliations. (Google it)
    You will find plenty of evidence that he is a racist.
