Last Night's Speech
So I didn't watch the President's speech last night on health care. Quite frankly, nothing he was going to say would sway my opinion on the whole matter. However, I was surprised to read this morning about the Representative from South Carolina, Joe Wilson, who so rudely yelled out during the speech. How immature? How disrespectful? Whether you agree with the President or not, respect the office and keep your comments to yourself in that situation. Completely unnecessary and ridiculous. So this is how our elected officials conduct themselves? Both parties are guilty of unruly behavior at times, and I'm sick of both of them. Last night was just another example on why I've grown disgusted with members of our Congress. Rep. Wilson could easily show his dissent by not voting for whatever legislation finally makes it to the floor. Yelling at the President on national TV is not the right way to go about things. I bet he just wrote his own ticket, right out of office. What a joke!
