All of South Carolina and the Republican Party should be embarrassed of Representative Joe Wilson’s “heckle” of a sitting President in a Joint Session of Congress.

Wow...if someone had done that to Bush, they would have been dragged out by the hair by the Secret Service.

Rep. Wilson..just like school on Saturday--NO CLASS.

This man is a disgrace. He violated the Republican's own rules in regard to decorum on the floor of the House.

He should be censured immediately and apologize. He also severely damaged his son's attempt at becoming Attorney General.

Rep. Wilson should be ashamed of himself. He has embarrassed South Carolinians with his disrespect of the President. I am sure Barack Obama would accept an unqualified public apology because he is a gracious man.

This isn't about being partisan. It's about respect for our institutions. Representative Wilson acted like a colossal idiot this evening, and should be profoundly ashamed of his actions.

This is a sad night for South Carolina.

Disgraceful and disrespectful to the office of the president and our very democracy.

Most Americans didn't know who Joe Wilson was before tonight. Most Americans sure know Joe Wilson now. He's a rude, obnoxious, immature, idiot unworthy of his position or the people he represents.

He also broke the House GOP's own rules:

... The precedents of the House allow a wide latitude in criticism of the President, other executive officials, and the government itself. However, it is not permissible to use language that is personally offensive to the President, such as referring to him as a “hypocrite” or a “liar.”...

Then again, being that Wilson's an SCV member, he's possibly offended at the idea of showing respect tp a black man, president or not.

That was just plain classless and disrespectful to Americans. Joe Wilson shouldn't be serving in Congress if he has such a disdain and lack of respect for our country.

House rules do not allow a Representative to call a sitting President a liar or some derivation of liar during a session. Mr. Wilson has broken the rules and deserves to be censured.

This POS needs to resign his office. Scum should not be allowed in the Congress of The United States. Another psycho embarrassing his state.

What a shame that this disrespectful person is in the US Congress.

He needs to apologize or be censured.

Unbelievable display of ignorant behavior--kiss my trip to Myrtle Beach goodbye. I won't spend a dime in support of such boorish behavior

And here I thought Southern men were gentlemen. Shame on you Mr. Wilson.

As a resident of Joe Wilson's district, I am not at all surprised at his actions. When you despise government, you disrespect it. I always ask my republican friends why they keep voting for people to do a job when they don't believe in the job?? Shame on Wilson.

Nutbags are clearly all that's left in the GOP.
