House Democrats, in a typical hypocritical, political games manner, are moving ahead with a resolution aimed at SC Representative Joe Wilson for shouting out “lie” during Obama’s address to Congress and the American people. Joe Wilson has already apologized to Obama.
Now read and listen to Joe Wilson’s wife:
“Dear friends and family,
The night of the President’s speech I called Joe and asked him who had made the “You lie!” comment. When he told me it was him – I couldn’t believe it.
But as we talked about the issue and how it would affect our family, I realized that Joe was speaking from the heart. After holding some of the largest town halls in the nation he returned to Washington encouraged to stand up for those Americans who needed a voice. Without a doubt, he chose the wrong time and place to express this emotion.
He made a mistake. He has apologized. The President has graciously accepted his apology.
And while our family is trying to move on from this episode the Democrats in Washington continue to drag him through the mud.
It is clear to me that they would rather attack him and the cause he stood up for that night than work with him and his colleagues to find a real solution to health care reform.
But as you’d expect from a veteran and a father of four boys who served in our military — two in Iraq — Joe isn’t backing down or playing their political games. He is standing up for the cause and is not stooping to their level of making personal attacks.
I’m proud of my husband. Our family is proud of their father. Our nation is proud of Congressman Joe Wilson.
We have put together a video telling the story of the Joe Wilson we know and love. I hope you’ll watch it and share it with your friends and family.
Thank you for everything you are doing and have done for Joe and our family. It warms our heart to know that so many Americans support him.
Proud to stand with Joe,
