Time to Contribute To Joe Wilson’s Campaign

Since the U.S. House of Representatives “voted to admonish Rep. Joe Wilson over his ‘You lie’ outburst to President Barack Obama during the president’s health care speech to Congress last week,” I encourage GayPatriot readers to join me in contributing to the South Carolina Republican’s campaign.

Looks like Democrats are making a martyr out of this Republican for behaving in a manner similar to that of many of their fellow partisans just four years ago when a Republican President addressed a joint session of Congress.

I agree with Congressman Mike Pence, Chairman of the House Republican Conference, who blogged:

Our economy is struggling, families are hurting. And yet, this Congress is poised to demand an apology from a man who has already apologized. It’s a disappointment to millions of Americans. Last week the Speaker of the House said, ‘It’s time to talk about health care.’ I say Speaker Pelosi was half right. The American people want less politics and more jobs. They want this Congress to put aside petty, partisan politics. To put aside this plan for a government takeover of health care and focus on what we know has always worked to get this economy moving again. That’s fiscal discipline in Washington, D.C. and immediate tax relief for working families, small businesses and family farms.

With unemployment and federal deficits skyrocketing, House Democrats take precious time to vote on censuring a man who has already shown his contrition.  Don’t think this is the change people hoped for when they voted for Democrats last fall.

  2. Maybe Mike Pence is the new future of the GOP? He certainly is making the right moves.

  4. Martyr:
    1 : a person who voluntarily suffers death as the penalty of witnessing to and refusing to renounce a religion
    2 : a person who sacrifices something of great value and especially life itself for the sake of principle
    3 : victim; especially : a great or constant sufferer (a martyr to asthma all his life — A. J. Cronin)
    What exactly has Wilson suffered, sacrificed, or lost? He was rebuked. Oh, and BDB, you might want to check your facts–hahaha. Sorry, forgot where I was. Anyway, for the rest of you, Wilson was not censured. He was rebuked. There are four levels: Expulsion, censure, reprimand, and disapproval. He was given the lowest level after refusing to apologize to the body he embarrassed. So, according to BDB, being disapproved of makes one a martyr. Once again, the GOP plays the WATB card. Man up, people.

  5. Sorry you disagree with the choice of words, tp.

    Hey, why don’t you comment about ACORN pushing the sex trade? Or maybe Dick Turban’s voting against defunding ACORN? Or that the President has time to comment on Kayne West, but not on his (former) co-workers brothel building?

  6. Can the Republicans in the House “rebuke” the President for all his lies?

  8. No matter what Joe Wilson yelled, yelling at the President in the middle of the president’s speech to a joint session of Congress, was rude and uncalled for.
    Not his words, but his actions were an embarrassment to the House of Representatives as well as himself and he deserved to be rebuked. I felt the same way about the Iraqi newsman who threw a shoe at President Bush. So no thank you. I will not reward his actions by giving him my money. Just my feelings and I still consider myself to be a conservative.

  9. Jimmy Carter is pushing me into donating to Wilson. Normally I like to keep it in-State, but I just saw a headline about him claiming that Wilson had to be motivated by racism. It’s disgraceful. For you lefties: I mean, **Jimmy Carter** is a disgrace to the American people. And your Dear Leader as well; who, yes, did actually make false statements in His address to Congress and was uttering a false statement at the moment of Wilson’s emotional outburst.

  10. … which means, Wilson was SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER. And we, the American people, need a LOT more of that.

  11. No matter what Joe Wilson yelled, yelling at the President in the middle of the president’s speech to a joint session of Congress, was rude and uncalled for.

    How about the President yelling at Americans, attacking Americans, attacking Republicans, attacking critics etc. etc. etc. not to mention lying his pathetic ass off? Isn’t that rude, uncalled for and totally lacking in any shred of integrity?

  12. TGC: Even if Obama is a crypto-fascist lying his ass off and destroying the future of America’s children as he insanely expands government – and he is, and it is a very big deal – we should be able to admit that Wilson’s outburst was technically rude and in violation of House rules.

    Wilson: does a rude outburst during a speech.
    Obama: Destroys America’s future.

    One *does* outweigh the other. So I won’t lose too much sleep tonight over Wilson’s outburst. I’ll simply admit that, yes, technically and on its own terms, apart from the larger context, it was rude.

  13. #gillie: Thank you for conceeding that President Obama did lie on the house floor.

    ILC: I don’t deny it was rude, it is the continued hypocracy of the Democrats that they censor him, but let comments like Jack Murtha’s slide that rankles me. Or that they let the POUTS lie on the house floor.

  16. You dumb homos don’t realize that Joe Wilson hates you and what you do to fellas in bed every night. If it were up to him, you’d be hanging from the highest limb. Idiots.

  17. Mike, wanna provide some evidence to back up your ugly accusation. Or is that just your prejudice speaking?
