    You recall that September 2009 speech before Congress where the President stated that if Healthcare became law illegal aliens would not be covered? December 24, 2009 late during the night, Democrats without one single Republican vote pass Healthcare. President Soetoro signed it into law.

    Only one thing, Joe Wilson was right Barry Hussein Soetoro was lying; illegal aliens will be covered by the Healthcare law that Democrats passed. (see articles here and here)

    Congressman Wilson interviewed with Fox News (see 6:07min video)

    Who's Barry Hussein Soetoro ?

    And why is Joe Wilson's breach of protocol and manners on the floor of congress (well a first in history) being applauded?

    Dude , really?
    Lets talk protocol?
    Protocol is chastising the supreme court for a decision they made that one certain POTUS did not like.

    I wouldnt criticize him for it. You need to realize, the Presidential address is an address to Congress...not the poeple. The media have turned it into an "event"....but it is the President speaking to congress...and if the President is going to "lie" during the address, I can understand one of the reps calling him out on it.
    Cheering, booing, and other remarks are normal for all addresses in all forms of government.
    I did not hold that against Wilson just as I did not hold it against the President when he criticized the decision of the Supreme Court.
    It is politics at its best if you ask me.

    And I am curious....your thoughts on the fact that the POTUS openly lied to congress about the health care for undocumented immigrants?

    Chastising?

    The Supreme Court broke precendent of a hundred years or so..and effectively legislated from the Bench.

    I throughly expect the Supreme Court to be called on bad decisions.

    I don't expect an elected official of this government to call another elected official a liar on the floor of congress.

    The POTUS calling out the SCOTUS for what he percieves as a bad decision is fine with me...but if it OK for him to do it during an address to congress, why is it OK for a congressperson to do it ot the president?

    Afterall, he is supposed to be "updating" comgress with his address....and if he is offering them false information, what is wrong with pointing it out?

    absolutely not.
    Americans should never turn away anyone in need while on our soil. It is not who we are.
    I just believe the President should have presented it EXACTLY as you just did. Not outright lie.

    As far as anyone can tell, Barry Hussein Soetoro is the President's legal name. He was registered in school in Indonesia under that name and there are no records of his name ever being changed back to barack obama.
    Not a problem to me though. He can call himself what ever he wants.
    Since when is calling a spade a spade a more serious breach of protocol than an outright lie to Congress and the citizens, in an address by the President of the United States?
    Perjury is fine, if you're a Democrat, I guess, and pointing out perjury is a breach of protocol if you're a Republican?
