Michelle Malkin » Unruly moment, manufactured outrage

As I was watching the speech I was not surprised that Joe Wilson spoke up, I was surprised no one else did.  Dems showed the level of respect and decorum that a president is due when they stood to applaud stopping the reform of Social Security under Bush (and here is the part that must really piss them off, he was right).

I wanted to see HIM called on his lies.  I wanted people to stand up when he claimed deficit-neutral, when he told us he was going to force insurance companies to cover additional things at no cost, when he changed the number of uninsured.

I WANT the GOP to stand up and fight.  I am so happy that the people are fighting back, but I want to see the GOP do more.  The GOP should not be turning to the people to show them how its done.  The old expression of “lead by example” needs to be taken to heart by the GOP.

Well done, Joe.  But instead of apologizing, you should have called on the GOP to stop being silent and call him out.

GOP Rep. Joe Wilson apologized for his outburst last night when he called out one of President Obama’s many lies.

I’ve never seen Nancy Pelosi’s face show so much emotion in my adult lifetime.

The Left is in high dudgeon — never letting a moment of manufactured outrage go to waste.

Sure, members of Congress should leave the heckling to town hall protesters.

But it was Obama who said himself in the speech: “If you misrepresent what’s in the plan, we will call you out.”

That’s what Joe Wilson was doing, wasn’t it?
