A comment about this video on this video:

Your public educational system at work. Why a woman that can’t string two words together is an educator in anything other than a port-a-potty, is a mystery. Furthermore her attempt to stifle dissent is anti-educational. She should be encouraging her students to express different viewpoints, not force uniformity or worshiping a human being. No worries – the Teachers Union will make sure she keeps her job, even though she’s incompetent and arrogant.

Note to teacher:  It is not disrespect/slander if Obama himself wrote about it in his own book.

The above text comes directly from President Obama’s first memoir, “Dreams From My Father” and recounts an incident which occurred while he was in middle school.  When our president became the subject of taunts from his fellow classmates, he decided to shove a little girl named Coretta.   Although he chronicles his feelings of regret, he never does not offer her an apology.

House votes to admonish Rep. Wilson for outburst

September 15, 2009

Wilson has declined to back down on his position that he owed the House no apology for the outburst. Wilson did express sorrow to Obama, who accepted the apology.

The resolution added to the already-toxic atmosphere of partisanship in the House.

“At issue,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said earlier, “is whether we are able to proceed with a degree of civility and decorum that our rules and our democracy contemplate and require.”

Wilson, speaking after Democrat Hoyer, refused to back down. “I think it is clear to the American people that there are far more important issues facing this nation than what we’re addressing right now.” He said Obama had “graciously accepted my apology and the issue is over.”

The resolution marks the first time in the 220-year history of the House that a member had been admonished for speaking out while the president was giving an address, according to the Office of the House Historian. A resolution of disapproval is less severe than other disciplinary action available to the House, including censure or expulsion.

Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Wilson reiterated his regrets for shouting “You lie!” in the middle of Obama’s health care speech to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday. “I would never do that again,” Wilson said. But he rejected demands from some of his colleagues, including House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., that he deliver a formal apology on the House floor.

“I have apologized to the president,” Wilson said. “I believe that is sufficient.”

There are precedents for the action against Wilson.

In 2003, House Republican leaders forced then-House Ways and Means Committee chairman Bill Thomas, R-Calif., to apologize for calling the U.S. Capitol Police to evict Democrats from a meeting room.

Two years ago, the House voted 196-173 to table House Republican leader John Boehner’s resolution to censure Rep. Pete Stark after the California Democrat suggested that then-president George W. Bush enjoyed U.S. casualties in Iraq.
