Before all the righteous Democrats begin to castrate Representative Joe Wilson for his lashing out last night during the speech, let us share a few flashbacks.
The record is clear - both sides of the aisle lack decorum and that is a sad commentary on today's politics. Wilson's remarks were unquestionably out of line, as well as the President's remarks when he used such strong language as "lies", which only served to provoke emotions and his consistent reference to the past administration.
I thought he was a forward looking President?
Another example is the childish games at the New York State Senate when the Democrats would not stand for the Pledge of Allegiance.
Listen to the boos and catcalls here, the only difference between then and last night is Wilson's timing. The rest of the chamber went silent while he was still barking out.
(and p.s. Bush was right back then about Social Security)
