Well! I’ll be gottdamned! Walt voted to admonish Joe Wilson for his unsavory outburst during President Obama’s speech to the combined houses of Congress last week. Simpson voted ‘no.’
The 240-179 roll call Tuesday by which the House passed a resolution of disapproval against Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., for Wilson’s “You lie!” shout during President Barack Obama’s health care address to a joint session of Congress.
A “yes” vote is a vote to pass the resolution.
Voting yes were 233 Democrats and 7 Republicans.
Voting no were 12 Democrats and 167 Republicans.
Voting present were 5 Democrats.
As an aside, George W. thought Obama ‘unqualified.’ Jezzus – what to say, what to say. If anyone would know about not meeting qualifications, it would be ole Georgie now wouldn’t it?
