Did the Democrats start the trend of interrupting Presidential speeches?

    YouTube - Democrats Boo Bush During 2005 SOTU


    Just saying, Wilson is not the first time a president speaking in front of congress was interrupted by a member or members of that congress.


    And in reality people stop and cheer constantly, interrupting presidents, is that tacit approval of a comment giving an opening to those who may want to boo instead? Could be...its an interesting thought excercise to think of at least.

    EDIT: I think yelling out liar was out of line.

    it's not the interruption it was the calling of names. Having said that the other guy called names first. Neither of them should have done it.

    Congress should be more like British Parliament or the Knesset. I won't be happy until they start swinging at each other

    like willow said, neither side should of done it. The dems were wrong in 2005 and Wilson is wrong now, but he did apologize.
    I think both parties need to sit back and look at how some of them are acting and maybe remember that they are congressman and develope a little respect for the job and the people they represent.

    I love watching the Parliament. It's a hoot,, probably a much more honest debate too.

    At least Joe Wilson apologized. You can't say the same for the Democrats in 2005.

    well to be honest I was not talking about 2005 I was talking about the leader of the free world calling Republicans liars. He should apologize to the American people.. say they are mistaken if you want but don't call them liars.. unless you do it in private.
