President Obama spoke in front of a joint session of Congress on health care, but most people aren’t talking about anything that was in his speech. Instead, all talk surrounds the congressman who apparently forgot that he wasn’t at a WWE match.
Who was that angry Republican? Representative Joe Wilson, a Republican from South Carolina.
Upon hearing President Obama say:
“There are also those who claim that our reform efforts would insure illegal immigrants. This, too, is false. The reforms — the reforms I’m proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally.”
Representative Wilson shouted, “You lie!”
Congressman Wilson has since been chastised via Twitter, his fellow Republican representatives have issued disapproving statements on his “disrespectful” outburst, and his House web site has crashed due to “exceptionally high traffic.”
