    Maybe a *slap* on the back of the HEAD ...

    Your right. An atta boy is way to little for exercising his First Amendment rights.

    So....

    It's okay to exercise your First amendment rights by shouting over someone who is exercising theirs? Yep, great way to debate and solve problems.

    Responsibility goes hand in hand with the rights enumerated in the Constitution.

    The Representatives have handed the Democrats perfect examples of Republican behavior which they'd be foolish not to use in a campaign. It's always a bad concept to hand the opposition ammunition.

    Note to the Republicans.....when you find yourself in a hole, put down the shovel.

    The Representatives have the House floor open to them to speak as they wish daily for one minute speeches. Should the Representative wish to do so, he could use that time to speak his peace.

    Interrupting a speech is petty and childish.

    You complain about the President arriving 10 minutes late, but it's okay for someone to cause further delay and attempt to turn the speech into a circus?

    Nice double standard.

    Note to the Dems, dont bother with the shovel just get some union goons to do the heavy lifting for you. Heck beat people up while your at it.

    Francis, the Dems have been shouting people down for decades, somehow its now in bad taste?

    What double standard? The congress bent over backwards and filled the clown car! Dems and Reps alike.

    Rep Wilson caused a half second delay with his remark Francis. THe speech was to start at 8:00 PM, who delayed the speech longer? Obama, or Wilson?

    Nice broad brush. As a union officer, I guess I'm a "union goon".

    Shouting people down is never in good taste. It's churlish behavior which has no place in a debate about an issue that's this important to the people of the US.

    Bad behavior doesn't justify bad behavior. So the POTUS was late. Not the first time it has happened, not the first President who has committed the faux pas, and I doubt it will be the last.

    BTW, my name isn't Francis.

    Only if you are beating people up at Town Hall Meetings.

    I agree with you. Rep Wilson didnt shout Obama down however.

    If he didnt act like a celeb, I wouldnt have an issue with it.

    BTW, my name isn't Francis.
    Then why are you replying to posts addressed to Francis?

    My whole focus was on Nutsy and the VP.

    The look on her face is still making me laugh.

    I thought it was someone from the 'peanut gallery' - some bozo that was a guest. The more I hear the Bigger the Oops! is.

    But, I still enjoyed NP's reaction - can I please count that as a separation of "Blurt and Gape"?

    I was hoping for more of a whack-a-mole with Nutsy. Next time the POTUS does a public address we should have a game of BINGO.

    What a bunch of petty b.s., and all about a 10 minute delay!!! Some folks here will scrape the bottom of the barrel for something to complain about!

    I'll give him those 10 minutes. Mr President spent 3 hrs in NY that morning, attending a memorial for Walter Cronkite.

    I wonder how many other big wigs would have even made an appearance there, let alone stay for the duration, if faced with the prep and rehearsal that was needed for last night's address??

    Get a life, blue.

    I LIKE that!

    I'm not so sure that it only applies to the Elephant Riders ...

    Seems like there's a lotta deep holes on both sides of the PT aisles.

    Different side of the same coin.

    What Rep. Wilson did was stupid and rude. But its just more of the same. The "D's" booed President Bush during some of his State of the Union addresses.

    Lets try this America... Next election, vote for anybody BUT an incumbent.

    Voting

    I will vote as I wish, not based on someone else's suggestion.

    And, you get to vote for the persons you want in office.

    Just sharing an idea. Of course you can vote as you wish.

    I (and millions more like me) are fed up with the WHOLE system, Republicrats and Demoicans alike.

    I find it sad that you would take what I said as an "order". Good grief, do you hate me that much? LOL

    I'm not Democrat or Republican, but I was truly shocked at the behavior of some of the Republicans last night - waving petitions (or whatever they were holding), being verbally rude, texting on their Blackberry or cell). I frankly don't recall the Dem's booing Bush, but I'm sure they did, and I find that just as appalling.

    They are/were the President's of this country, and they deserve respect, regardless of what we think of them.

    Hate is a pretty strong word, don't you think? I didn't even see strong dislike in her post.
