Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
President Obama himself has been intentionally offensive to people (calling the Tea-Party Teabaggers and so forth) or intentionally disrespectful (During the campaign he refused to call President Bush 'President' - instead he always just called him 'Bush') - and this is nothing new in politics. Nothing new, nothing shocking.
What I'm sick of is people being ok with all of this behavior as long as it's from their camp against their opponent - but then they'll reel in disbelief and horror when it comes at them from the other side.
If you dish it - then you better be ready to take it.
President Obama certainly hasn't set a stellar example of how to behave well.

I agree with the Governors opinion but as a former holder of elected office I know better and would never have said such and incendiary statement in public where it could be picked up on audio or video.
I think is was a mistake he should not have made.
Buying Votes for Health Care Bill With Amnesty for Illegal Aliens -- WASHINGTON, March 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --
I'm not sure about the "you lie" bit. I guess in this case, it might depend on what the definition of "is" is. His health care plan might not have included illegal immigrants, but if his plan from the beginning was to give citizenship to illegal immigrants, then his statement sounds pretty much like a bald-faced lie to me.
