You Go Joe!

And the president who prides himself on comity lashed back at opponents who have filled the airwaves with talk of “death panels.” Mr. Obama said, “It is a lie, plain and simple.”With Obama showing a lack of decorum, and continuing to misrepresent his proposals, isn't a little uncivil disobedience appropriate?
Watch this clip, please. While Joe Wilson's outburst is important to hear, what's more significant is the response of the entire chamber when Obama suggests there are still important details to be resolved to get health care done. Congress laughed at the President when he suggested there were still some big challenges in getting the socialized medicine measure passed - as if to say, "you don't know the half of it!"
The president's speech to Congress was his crispest and most forceful defense of his health care plans. But what was telling was the laughter in the chamber when Obama allowed that there are "significant details to be ironed out."With support in Congress shaky for the radical agenda, the speech will be part of a new push - including, today, an invitation to twelve centrists to be lobbied by the Prez. Perhaps Obama will be hanging the memory of Senator Kennedy over their heads.
Mr. Obama tried to appeal to reason, but he didn’t stint on emotions, describing Mr. Kennedy not as the liberal lion of the Senate, but as a father who watched two of his three children battle cancer. As the camera froze on the senator’s widow, Victoria, struggling to keep her composure, Mr. Obama said, “He never forgot the sheer terror and helplessness that any parent feels when a child is badly sick; and he was able to imagine what it must be like for those without insurance.”Won't liberal Democrats in the House, insisting that they need the Public Option (Single Payer) give in when the only other option is failure? This ain't over till the skinny lady sings.
