House Tells Joe Wilson He’s A Bad Boy, No Biscuit!

Because they have absolutely nothing better to do

The final vote tally was 240-179, with 7 Republicans siding with Democrats on the resolution to condemn Wilson, and 12 Democrats voting with Republicans against it. Five Democrats voted “present.”

Here are the 7 Republicans that voted with the Democrats in favor the resolution:

Rep. Anh Cao [R, LA-2]
Rep. Jo Ann Emerson [R, MO-8]
Rep. Jeff Flake [R, AZ-6] (this one is very disappointing to me)
Rep. Bob Inglis [R, SC-4]
Rep. Walter Jones [R, NC-3]
Rep. Thomas Petri [R, WI-6]
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher [R, CA-46] (this one is very disappointing to me)

Here are the 12 Democrats who voted against it:

Rep. Michael Arcuri [D, NY-24]
Rep. William Delahunt [D, MA-10]
Rep. Gabrielle Giffords [D, AZ-8]
Rep. Maurice Hinchey [D, NY-22]
Rep. Dennis Kucinich [D, OH-10]
Rep. Daniel Maffei [D, NY-25]
Rep. Eric Massa [D, NY-29]
Rep. James McDermott [D, WA-7]
Rep. Gwen Moore [D, WI-4]
Rep. Gene Taylor [D, MS-4]
Rep. Harry Teague [D, NM-2]

No mention if the House will vote to withhold biscuits from tax cheat Charlie Rangle anytime soon.

    2 out of 3 Americans think that what “Joe” wilson did was wrong. And of course like the last uber right hero Joe The Plumber “Joe” is not Wilson’s name. He is in fact a phoney Joe.Teach take a look at the Gallup poll and you will see why appealing to the base doesn’t work so well anymore.

  2. So, John, can you tell me when you objected to Democrats calling Bush a liar many, many times on the House floor? Or when they boo’d him on 2 separate times during SOTU addresses?

  3. John Ryan says:

    Teach “Joe” Wilson was not reprimanded for booing. Neither were the many others who booed reprimanded for booing. Wilson was reprimanded for doing something else, for interrupting the speech given by the President of the United States by shouting YOU LIE. That I believe had never happened before, please cite a link if it was done before. The House has never had to use that option before, Wilson could have avoided it by simply apologizing to the House for breaking its rules. As far as Rangle and his taxes, he underpaid he was caught and he then promptly paid. There was no crime committed, it was hardly the first time that a Congressman had to amend a return. Certainly the Republicans did not due that when Delay was INDICTED nor when Ney was INDICTED. In fact the Republicans allowed both to keep their committee assignments something that Pelosi refused to do when “Cold Cash” Jefferson was indicted. Should you bother to check you will find that the number of Republicans in Congress convicted is rather more that the number of Democrats convicted

    Joe Wilson called the president that very night, and apologized to him. Obama accepted the apology, and that’s where it should have ended. It is the democraps who have fomented the issue, making it about race among other things.
    The louses who booed Bush, and called him a liar on many occasions never have apologized, and never will. So as always, there is a huge double standard that the Demorats have always held fast as status quo.

  5. Trish says:

    Just because Democrats don’t get convicted of the various charges, doesn’t mean they weren’t guilty. Look at Teddy.

  6. Joe Wilson apologized to Obama, John, as Trish rightly points out. All this was was Democrat grandstanding in the House.
