Rep. Tom Price, a Georgia Republican, threatened earlier today to introduce a resolution accusing Grayson of “a breach of decorum” that “degraded the integrity” of the House, echoing the wording of a House resolution disapproving of Republican Rep. Joe Wilson’s shout of “You lie!” during President Barack Obama’s address to a joint session of Congress. That resolution passed, largely on party lines. Price, who voted against it, said he would hold off introducing his resolution on Grayson to give the Democrat time to apologize.Then, amidst demands for an apology, he twists the dagger!
(Grayson) added that unlike Wilson, who was using a “cheap bully tactic,” he was engaging in robust debate protected by the Constitution, and “simply said what’s been on everybody’s minds.” Grayson voted to censure Wilson. “I didn’t insult the president in the midst of an assembly of the House and Senate and an audience of millions… I didn’t interrupt him… I didn’t bring disrepute upon the House,” Grayson argued.Then he goes on CNN and demagogues further! Would that there were more Democrats who put so little effort into hiding their obnoxiousness.
Grayson told Washington Wire he’s not going to apologize. “There’s nothing to apologize for,” he said.
