'You lie': McCain says Wilson 'should apologize for it immediately'
thehill.com ^ | 9/9/09 | Molly K. Hooper

Posted on 09/09/2009 7:09:17 PM PDT by Sleeping Freeper

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Democratic leaders are calling on Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) to apologize for heckling President Obama as a liar.

Wilson shouted to the president "you lie" after Obama said illegal immigrants would not benefit from health insurance coverage from the reform bill. Obama glared disgustedly in the direction the remark came from, as did Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Vice President Joe Biden.

House Democratic Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) called Wilson's outburst "embarrassing," while McCain said it was "totally disrespectful" and that there was "no place for it in that setting or any other."

McCain said Wilson "should apologize for it immediately."

In the end, the only one who spoke the whole truth tonight, who addressed the entire Joint Session, was South Carolina Congressmen Joe Wilson. And he did it with just two words...YOU LIE!

Obama says he is going to save enough from one huge, inefficient, wasteful government program, Medicare, to pay for an even larger (eventually) also sure to be enefficient wasteful government program, Obamacare.

DOES ANYONE BELIEVE THAT BRAVO SIERRA?

Can you possibly trust or believe after the stimulus, bail-out, and Cash for Clunkers fiascos that this is what will happen?

No.

Read the bill the Democrats put forward. it is a HUGE government bureaucracy.

...and, it will lead to government officials deciding the standards for who gets coverage when...basically, for older Americans, it will amount to death panels.

Except Obama did lie.

HR3200 says no illegal immigrants. Except there is no enforcement provision whatsoever.

Republicans put forward Heller Amendment, which would have put in an enforcement mechanism (applying the existing SAVE program).

Democrats voted against this on a party line vote, killing it in the ways and means committee.

Joe Wilson spoke truth to Power.

I stand in solidarity with him. Never have two words so adequately summed up the debate about Obamacare. “YOU LIE”

McCain should move aside he is not the standard bearer for Republicans.

Maybe if McCain had the guts to call Obummer a liar during the campaign, he actually may have won the election. If anybody should apologize it is Obummer for lying every time he opens his mouth.

‘You lie’: McCain says Wilson ‘should apologize for it immediately’
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Why? For “speaking truth to power”? I don’t think so.

Please retire, McCain!
