You Lie


A student of mine in Political Science said it best. You have every right to disagree with President Obama and if you do disagree you actually have a responsibility to let your feelings be known. I totally agree with that. But, "We need to speak the truth in wisdom." We have the right to disagree with the president but we must respect his office. He is the elected leader of this country whether you like it or not.

I was seriously offended by Congressman Wilson from South Carolina last night. I would like to call for his immediate resignation. He is a jerk. He is an idiot. He is a fool. He does nothing but bring shame on our country and his office as a United States Representative. South Carolina should move quickly to replace him with someone with more self control.

I find it interesting that what caused his uproar was the statement by the President that there is nothing in any proposal that will give free health care to illegal immigrants. That is true but Wilson could not handle hearing the President say it. Wilson was very comfortable in his racist self believing that the health care reform was some liberal program to provide free health care to minorities. His outburst is consistent with the actions and comments of the people who still cannot handle the fact that after 233 years we finally have a black president. Imagine how he will feel once we elect a woman and we will elect a woman very soon.
