Rep. Steve King: It's Obama's fault that Wilson screamed at him.
"A lot of us said, well, this health care bill is gonna fund illegals, and the President said, 'Prominent politicians are lying to you.' He said that on the floor of the House of Representatives," King said. "I don't think there's ever been a President comes to the House of Representatives as a guest of the members of the House and makes a declaration like he did. I mean, the President threw the first punch."

And King said of Wilson: "God bless him. He said what we were thinking.



And here's what Mike Pence had to say:

"You know, the Old Book tells us, 'A harsh word stirs up anger.' Well we might have seen a little bit of that last week. In the midst of a highly partisan speech by the President of the United States, Joe made a mistake," said Pence. "Immediately, after the speech was over, Joe recognized his mistake and he offered his sincere apology to the President and the President's staff -- and he was right to apologize. But it's important to note that despite his admitted error, the broader national interest was actually served."


And Louie Gohmert brings us home with this nonsense:

"After the vote was taken, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) declared on the House floor that Obama had insulted Congress, by saying that his opponents were lying about his health care proposals. "He comes in here talking about a lie ... He says we're making wild claims," said Gohmert. "That's no way to act when you're invited into somebody else's house."

1. Steve King is as stupid as they come..
How he keeps getting re-elected is beyond my comprehension.. He refuses to debate the Democratic opponents. He was calling the President a terrorist in July 2007. I know, I live in his district.

9. And of course let's continue to ignore the FACT: Joe Wilson was WRONG; Pres. Obama did not lie.
Wilson was RUDE and IGNORANT.

Wilson was WRONG; President Obama was NOT lying.


TWO WRONGS, joey-boy.

13. Joe did not immediately recognize his mistake. His leadership ordered him to apologize.
