President Barack Obama accepts your apology

s-JOE-WILSON-large

GOP Rep. Joe Wilson has apologized for yelling out “You lie!” to Obama during his health care speech in front of Congress:

This evening I let my emotions get the best of me when listening to the President’s remarks regarding the coverage of illegal immigrants in the health care bill. 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.

The non-partisan organization FactCheck.org has debunked the claim that health care reform would mandate coverage for illegal immigrants

Obama said today that Wilson apologized “quickly and without equivocation” and the congressman told reporters the shout-out was “spontaneous.”

“We all make mistakes,” Obama told reporters, a day after Wilson stunned the president and his colleagues with his outburst.

Ha! Speaker Pelosi looked like she wanted to punch the guy in the face! SMH!

  1. Another unfortunate, defining moment when us Republicans want to grab a brown paper bag and hide our faces. There’s more appropriate settings and ways to disagree with the president.
