Ladies and Gentleman, meet the new face of the revolution:
Representative Joe Wilson from South Carolina, who made the unprecedented move of calling the President a LIAR - not just on television, but during the President's nationally televised address to Congress and the nation, is a hero.
While weasels like McCain are calling on Wilson to apologize, I salute the man for having the balls to tell the truth - and the truth is, illegal aliens WILL and DO receive benefits from Medicare, Medicaid, and other government programs under current law and under proposed reforms. There is NOTHING in any bill supported by the President or Congressional democratics that prevents illegal aliens from obtaining benefits.
In normal times, I would agree it is wrong to disrespect the office of the President - but these are no longer normal times. The President has already socialized banks, the auto industry and insurance. Now he wants to take over the health care industry without even reading a bill. In earlier times, colonies declared independence and states went to war with each other over issues like this. And so, the time has come for people to be willing to stand up and shout the truth. Protocol be damned!
Besides, it not like he threw a shoe at the man...
Wilson just went from a political nobody to up near the front of the line for the nomination to run against Obama as far as I am concerned. His resume is actually pretty good.
Hmmm... Palin and Wilson in 2012...
