Way to Go, Joe!

As you all probably know by now, President Obama’s speech to Congress on health care reform was interrupted mid-stream by an emotional outburst from Joe Wilson, a congressman from South Carolina. Since this exchange violated the “terms of engagement” and represented a “breach of decorum,” the Congressman issued the following apology: 

“This evening I let my emotions get the best of me,” he said in a statement. “While I disagree with the president’s statement, my comments were inappropriate and regrettable. I extend sincere apologies to the president for this lack of civility.”

Let me be the first to say, “three cheers for decorum and civility!” After all, there are appropriate ways for civilized societies to deal with important matters, and yelling and name calling are probably not on the list. In this regard, Congressman Wilson’s apology was warranted and President Obama’s willingness to forgive the outburst is exemplary.

But let me quickly add that his passion and his willingness to expose our President’s ongoing problem with telling the truth should be applauded. It’s refreshing to see passion expressed over things that really matter. After all, the President was not discussing the need to fill pot holes, he was pushing for a massive government takeover of health care which most certainly will include blood money for the deaths of innocent Americans via “reproductive health care” (i.e. abortion). To make matters worse, the president accused those who disagreed with him of being untruthful, while he was busy spinning his own web of fabrications (He lied!).  

Even less than conservative sources like the New York Times, Time Magazine and the The Washington Post support the “liar, liar pants on fire” charges leveled by Congressman Wilson:

  • the current health care plan includes abortion coverage with federal dollars.
  • The New York Times also called “falsehood” on the President’s assertions that you would be able to keep your doctor and that Medicare would not be affected.
  • the President’s health care bill would lead to bureaucrats rationing care. In this bill, Section 1401 establishes the Center for Comparative Effectiveness Research. This Center is created to ration health care based on effectiveness and cost (i.e. Governor Palin was right).

So all things considered, let me say, “Way to go, Joe!” Thanks for being passionate about things that really matter and for having the courage to stand for the truth in the face of socialistic propaganda. It’s a sad day when TRUTH loses to civility and decorum.
