    Lol, at least the dems could be respectful in congress when W was running this country into the ground.

    Glad you feel like it should just be complete chaos while the leaders of our country meet. That will help things to get done.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    So, we should use the House of Commons as our standard for respect in Congress?

    Are you kidding me....i think you have already forgotten how the Dems treated Bush during his tenure as our president. What the Republican congressman did was classless and he should apologize to the president but don't for a minute think that Dems weren't as bad if not worse to Bush.

    Here is just one example.

    If you have to turn off and put your cell phone away at a movie theater, does it seem like common sense that you wouldn't sit in the front row and Twitter throughout the President's speech?

    We seem to be using the rest of the worlds lower health care costs as a standard for our own.

    Amen!

    In Cincinnati City Council, there are two councilwomen who are guilty of Twittering during council meetings, posting bitchy comments about each other on their Twitter pages. It's disrespectful in so many regards.

    In more than one story about Congressman Joe "You Lie!" Wilson, it was reported that after his outburst, he occupied himself by typing on his BlackBerry. More disrespect. (On another note, the President accepted Wilson's apology.)

    certainly the man felt that he has enough freedom to where he can speak out against the President or twitter if he so chooses. I guess he was wrong

    I think it is the matter of respect, if not for the man at least the office. I couldn't stand when Dems were disresptful to Bush and I don't like it when Republicans are disrespectful to Obama when he is addressing congress.

    Just my 2 cents

    Speaking about twittering though there was a picture on Drudge a few weeks back that showed state congressmen in Maryland (i think) playing solitare and on the web.
