Title: "You lie" = $100,000
Post by: 240 is Back on September 10, 2009, 03:22:50 AM
Joe Wilson's opponent in the congressional race has raised 100,000 since last night's outburst. 

It might have been great for him to coddle with his base, to yell such a thing.  But $ talks, and the dude he's running against is cashing in on it.

personally, I would hate to see our presidential addresses turn into people screaming over each other.  I guess some folks lack emotional control.

This just gives the left another extreme circumstance to harp on, while ignoring the real issues at hand.

The RATS booed Bush during his SOU address.  Whats your point 240? 

He has no point.Its ok when dems do it.Its ok when that little limp wristed girl ,Harry Reid calls Bush a liar and a looser BECAUSE hes a democrat and they are allowed.Its ok for Al Sharpton to call greeks "homos" but not ok for Imus to use similar language.Its typical lib double talk bullcrap.

No one should be shouting out at a congressional address, must have reasonable etiquette.  This applies to both parties.

Yeah, I m sure the rest of the class was just giddy last night knowing their CIC is nothing more than a liar, a fraud, and will say anything to get this garbage passed. 

Better than having to deal with someone mentally unbalanced enough to start "raging" at his boss.

you know they were being just that.  dude, when it's revealed clearly that their intention was to disrupt and prevent the town hall, there's absolutely nothing american about that.  It equals "I'm here to make sure you guys can't talk about this"  Nothing in that belongs in our system.  When libs do it, they get hauled out.  When rightwingers do it all of a sudden it's "their right"  ::) come on...

Rep. Wilson raises more than $200,000

"Less than a day after Rep. Joe Wilson formally apologized to President Obama over his "you lie" outburst, a campaign aide confirms that the South Carolina Republican has raised "more than $200,000" in the wake of the now-infamous moment"

He shouldn't have done it and that kind of conduct cannot be condoned, but in terms of substance, there isn't much difference between what he said and Obama calling Republicans liars during his speech.

Wilson directly asked in a Web video for campaign cash to fend off attacks from political opponents and said he's standing by his opposition to Democratic efforts at health care reform.

WASHINGTON (CNN) U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson the South Carolina Republican who heckled President Obama during his speech to a joint session of Congress has raised "more than $700,000," a campaign aide confirmed.

News of that cash haul comes after Wilson directly asked in a Web video for campaign cash to fend off attacks from political opponents and said he's standing by his opposition to Democratic efforts at health care reform.

Wilson has come under fire for shouting "you lie" to Obama during the Wednesday night address to Congress on health care reform. The lawmaker soon apologized for his behavior, viewed by Republicans and Democrats as an ill-mannered breach of political decorum.

The remark energized Wilson's opponents and supporters, who have been opening their wallets and sending donations to Wilson and Rob Miller, his Democratic opponent in next year's congressional race.

Miller who has reported raking in more than $1 million as a result of the outburst ran against Wilson last year, losing by 8 percentage points. It was Wilson's smallest margin of victory in his five elections to Congress.

In an e-mail to supporters Friday night, Miller said he had raised the money in small contributions in less than 48 hours a total that dwarfs the $67,000 he has taken in during the entire first half of the year.

Wilson shouted "you lie" after Obama laid out what he said were "bogus claims" about health care reform "spread by those whose only agenda is to kill reform at any cost."

"The best example is the claim made not just by radio and cable talk show hosts, but by prominent politicians, that we plan to set up panels of bureaucrats with the power to kill off senior citizens. Now, such a charge would be laughable if it weren't so cynical and irresponsible. It is a lie, plain and simple.

"There are also those who claim that our reform efforts would insure illegal immigrants. This, too, is false. The reforms I'm proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally," Obama said.

That's when Wilson uttered his now-infamous remark, sparking boos and Obama's retort: "It's not true."

In a YouTube video released on Thursday, Wilson said "on these issues, I will not be muzzled, I will speak up and speak loudly against this risky plan."

He said "supporters of the government takeover of health care and the liberals who want to give health care to illegals are using my opposition as an excuse to distract from the critical questions being raised about this poorly conceived plan."

yeah, I was thinking the same thing.

Then again, Michelle Baucus said a lot of nutty stuff during the last campaign and was shunned by her party in the weeks prior to the election so it can definitely be a double edged sword
