Can I assume those who want to stop Wilson's fund raising will also want to stop his opponent's fund raising since he too is taking advantage of the situation, albeit not one that he created? As I have posted before, the Democrats are kicking themselves because none of their reps had the guts to call out Bush even with all of the terrible, horrible things he was doing. Although there was a lot of group grumbling during some of Bush’s speeches, I wish someone would have done what Joe Wilson did. Joe Wilson is not helping to bring down the Constitution, he is bringing it to the forefront. What better way to protect it. The Democrats have actually had to reacquaint themselves with the document in order to figure out a punishment for Joe Wilson. Let's hope they keep reading.
The Dems have NO idea of the depth and breadth of outrage that a big part of America has. This administration has just brought it to a head. They delegate this outrage to the fringe right, to their own peril. This outrage is not just about healthcare, it's about bailouts, about takeovers and about increasing government intervention in our lives to our country's detriment. It is about not being heard. Joe Wilson spoke for us. It wasn't just Joe Wilson telling Obama "You lie!" it was America. Now the world knows what a large section of America thinks. We think Obama lies. And I think our Founding Fathers would be impressed.
