Wonder what you would find if you frisked the Democratic Party after Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) apologized to the President for his “You lie!” outburst?
Answer: They want a few more, of course.
The Hill reports:
Democratic leaders have said they will introduce a “resolution of disapproval” Monday or Tuesday unless Wilson formally apologizes on the House floor. The House returns Monday.
Wilson apologized to White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel on Wednesday evening and, on Thursday, Obama said he accepted Wilson’s apology. Democratic lawmakers note that he was pressed to do so by Republican leaders.
Several House leaders and many rank-and-file Democrats pushed a reluctant House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) Thursday for some sanction against Wilson.
“There was a violation of the rules of the House,” said Pelosi spokesman Brendan Daly. “It needs to be resolved by an apology or a resolution.”
It is against House rules to impugn the integrity of the president when speaking on the floor or in committee meetings.
Leave it up to those pesky liberals in Congress to whine and moan about a comment that was already apologized for the moment it occurred. And guess what? It was excepted by the President the following day. Granted, it was definitely the wrong place and time for it, but good God… More apologies!? Get over it.
Aren’t there more important issues the Democrats should be focused on? I could have sworn they were trying frantically to pass a failed 1,000+ page socialized health care bill… Maybe I was wrong, but lets hope so.
At least Rep. Joe Wilson is staying his ground and not wasting anymore of the taxpayer’s time. The Dems? Well, not so much.
Side-note: Nancy Pelosi wants sanctions against Rep. Wilson? Of course, the liberal hypocrisy continues. Remember this:
Yeah… Speaker Pelosi, act like a Glad Bag and zip it.
