GOP Rep. Joe Wilson Says He Will Not Apologize Again for His "You Lie" Outburst; May Face Censure by the House - Video 9/13/09

Here is video of GOP Rep. Joe Wilson on Fox News Sunday today, where he told Chris Wallace he will not apologize again for his "You Lie" outburst during President Obama's Health Care Speech last week.

Democrats are planning to put Wilson on the spot to apologize from the floor of the House of Representatives or face formal censure by the House. If censured, he will be made to stand in the well of the House and be formally rebuked by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Wilson is adamant that he has already apologized to President Obama, and the apology has been accepted. He said he will not do it again.

If the Democrats are not careful, they are going to overplay their hand here. But they won't be able to help themselves, and Nancy Pelosi is going to come off looking like the Wicked Witch of the West if she lectures Joe Wilson about civility. It will only create more sympathy for Joe Wilson.

Anybody who has "sympathy" for Joe Wilson is a few cards shy of a full deck, anyway.

I don't know for sure, but I would imagine that, in addition to being an insult to the President, Wilson's outburst was likely a gross violation of House rules re: conduct and deportment. If that's the case, he DOES owe a further apology to his colleagues.

Judging from what I've seen of Wilson's conduct since Wednesday night, I doubt he's really all that apologetic, anyway. Maybe losing his seat in the House might help humble him.
