    Default Dems wasting our tax dollars again

    Correct me if I am wrong but I believe Obama accepted an apology from Wilson yet the dems feel the need to act on this issue. Must be a slow week on capitol hill, you know with all that agreement on health care, Afghanistan and the economy.

    1. It's stupid, especially given the way several Dem members acted during Bush's State of the Union a few years ago.

    2. It's not all Dems. Your beloved Nancy Pelosi is quoted in the article as saying that they should just move on to the important debates, leaving this issue behind.

    Bottom line: There's just always going to be people, especially politicians, who want to grandstand. This is it, as was Joe Wilson's disrespectful outburst, as well as the Dems during the Bush State of the Union. So there ya go.

    There is no shoe on the other foot. The guy screamed out at the pres during a joint session of Congress. I guess the rules on the floor during a joint address don't matter much to your side. I didn't expect you to get that anyway.

    I like the way MY tax dollars were used today.

    All Wilson had to do was simply go to the well and do a mea culpa. I guess he likes this as it's putting mucho dinero into his coffers.

    As opposed to booing Bush and yelling "No, no, no!" during his State of the Union? It's all grandstanding, but both sides do it.

    washed up, I doubt you will pay enough in taxes in your lifetime to cover even 5 minutes this complete waste of time.

    You cannot seriously believe this is a good use of our elected representatives' time.

    In a year or so, the people of South Carolina's 2nd district will determine if Joe Wilson deserves another term in office. I've already bet a guy in the office he gets reelected. I think most everyone agrees his comment was in bad taste, but many people in his district agree with Congressman's Wilson's sentiments.

    If that is the case lets look at the historical precedent of the President addressing a joint session. Most of the time it is done once during the state of the union as stated in the Constitution. What he did might not technically be constitutional, that is calling a joint session when it is not the state of the union address. Jefferson just sent letters to the congress and that practice was in place until Teddy Roosevelt I believe who began the trend of giving the Address in person.
