Inglis Hangs Wilson
Unfortunately, Adam Fogle over at the Palmetto Scoop beat me on the scoop in the 4th Congressional District. I guess that is one of the disadvantages of being a parent and raising the family in the world of news stories.
Today, the US House voted on H. Res. 744, The Joe Wilson Resolution.
Resolved, That the House of Representatives disapproves of the behavior of the Representative from South Carolina, Mr. Wilson, during the joint session of Congress held on September 9, 2009.
The idea was to publicly reprimand the Congressman Joe Wilson because of his “You Lie” outburst during Obama’s speech to the nation. Joe Wilson had issued apologies to the President after the incident and Obama had accepted those apologies. Wilson felt that was good enough.
With that said, you figured most of the Congress would be logical and vote against this resolution. They didn’t and our very own Congressman Bob Inglis decided his public apology was not enough. Here is the screenshot of his twitter feed.
Part 1: Joe Wilson apologized to President. Part 2: He should apologize to House for rule violation. That would end the matter.
Joe Wilson analogy: I speed, lose control of my car and hit your car. Part 1: I fix your car. Part 2: I pay my speeding ticket. Case closed.
In our next articles, we will speculate on the logic and reason behind this vote.
