Breaking News: House Plans Joe Wilson's Rebuke on Tuesday! Crybaby Wilson is NOT Happy About It!

Breaking News:
AP Reports: House plans Wilson rebuke Tuesday
WASHINGTON — House Democrats reaffirmed plans to take up a resolution as early as Tuesday afternoon scolding defiant Republican Rep. Joe Wilson, who shocked colleagues by yelling "You lie!" during President Barack Obama's address to Congress last week.

Democratic aides say Rep. James Clyburn, a fellow South Carolinian, will introduce a resolution of disapproval, probably on Tuesday afternoon, with a vote later in the day. The aides spoke anonymously because no public announcement had been made.

Wilson telephoned White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel and "expressed his apologies" after the episode last week but he has rejected Democratic calls to make a similar statement on the House floor.

Wilson says his initial apology was enough.

Obama should issue a simultaneous apology for his continued disingenuous misrepresentation of the illegal alien participation issue. Everyone knows that without an enforcement mechanism everyone will be able to participate regardless of citizenship. The defeat of the Republican amendment to solve this problem says it all as does the support of the Hispanic Caucus and la Raza. Why does Obama keep denying the obvious? It's enough to cause people to stand up and say BS, Mr. President, BS.

Even his wife didn't believe it was him:

Roxanne Wilson, wife of controversial South Carolina Republican Rep. Joe Wilson, said her first impression of the person who interrupted President Obama's speech to Congress last week was that he was a "nut."

It was only after the speech she learned that nut was her husband.

ATLANTA (AP) -- Former President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday that U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson's outburst to President Barack Obama during a speech to Congress last week was an act "based on racism" and rooted in fears of a black president.

"I think it's based on racism," Carter said at a town hall held at his presidential center in Atlanta. "There is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president."

The Georgia Democrat said the outburst was a part of a disturbing trend directed at the president that has included demonstrators equating Obama to Nazi leaders.

"Those kind of things are not just casual outcomes of a sincere debate on whether we should have a national program on health care," he said. "It's deeper than that."
