I didn't see the interview but why does Wilson think that Michelle Obama's family being from S.C.
...means he is not racist?

At least he didn't say some of my best friends are Black.

WASHINGTON--Rep. Wilson (R-S.C.), who shouted out "you lie" during President Obama's health care address to a joint session of Congress,on Wednesday, told Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday" he will not apologize again for his outburst--a breach of House etiquette.

"I am not going to apologize again," he said. He said he apologized to Obama on Wednesday he said and "that is sufficient." Actually, the apology went to Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.

That means Wilson will likely be brought to the well of the House floor this upcoming week so House Speaker Nancy Pelosi can sanction him.

Wilson said he had a "town hall" moment.


"I would never do anything like that again."

Asked if race was an issue: "I respect the president." He also noted that First Lady Michelle Obama has family in South Carolina.

"I am a civil peson. I have apologized to the president. I believe that is sufficient."
