I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Democrats To Introduce Resolution Scolding Joe Wilson Next Week

by @ 5:49 pm on September 11, 2009. Filed under Joe Wilson, Politicos & Pundits, Politics

Well, we knew this was coming:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has agreed the House should vote next week on scolding Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) for his outburst during President Barack Obama’s speech unless he apologies on the floor of the House.

“There was a violation of the rules of the House,” said Pelosi spokesman Brendan Daly. “It needs to be resolved by an apology or a resolution.”

A Democrat, likely House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), will introduce a “resolution of disapproval” Monday or Tuesday unless Wilson formally apologizes on the House floor. The House returns Monday.

Wilson shouted “You lie!” Wednesday night during Obama’s speech to a joint Session of Congress, after Obama said his health care plan would not cover illegal immigrants.

Wilson apologized Wednesday evening and, on Thursday, Obama said he accepted Wilson’s apology.

Wilson spokesman Ryan Murphy indicated the congressman will not apologize on the House floor.

Murphy told the Associated Press Wilson “apologized to the president and the president accepted and said let’s move on and have a civil discourse, and the congressman agrees.”

Yea, this ain’t over yet.
