EVENING SNACKS: President Obama's Healthcare Speech+MTV VMA MJ Promo

Congress was wilin' out tonight during President Obama's healthcare speech to Congress. Bold republican Rep. Joe Wilson even yelled out "You Lie!" in the middle of O's speech. Straight disrespectful and I'm too heated to even discuss the rest. Overall President Obama did a fab job as usual. Check out the Rep's apology he just issued after people were up in arms about what he did:
This evening I let my emotions get the best of me when listening to the President's remarks regarding the coverage of illegal immigrants in the health care bill. While I disagree with the President's statement, my comments were inappropriate and regrettable. I extend sincere apologies to the President for this lack of civility.
Check out the video and story here. And here's video of Prez O's full speech:


In the new MTV VMA promo, replicas of Michael Jackson's iconic jeweled glove rain from the sky in a tribute like no other to the King of Pop. Tune in this Sunday.
The Randomness: 1. Wow. Ellen DeGeneres was just named as the official 4th judge replacing Paula Abdul on "American Idol" next season. Real talk. Story

@Blaq Current I'm sorry to

@Blaq Current I'm sorry to let you know that you are sadly misinformed. Not only was there outrage and an outcry from Democrats about Bush senior's televised address to schoolchildren about drugs but those same partisans on the hill investigated and held hearings about "his justification for inserting himself in the classroom". I don't know who that blogger/psuedojournalist on yahoo is but that is a complete revision of history. I'm not sure about Reagan's address but there was not likely to be much ado about anything he did. He was an immensely popular president and still is with the American people. That term "Reagan Democrats"? Yeah, you'll never hear that for Obama, Bush, or likely anyone to come after them anytime soon.

My, my i thought i was

My, my i thought i was watching the UK Parliment in session for a minute. They love to get it in, heckle, boo, curse, you name it they do it. The American Congress does not work that way, and Wilson's outburst was innappropriate. That being said, Obama said if you lie or distort we will "call you out". That's exactly what Wilson did didn't he? That speech was chalked with untruth and unfortunately the Pres has been the king of misinformation. The Republicans are not holding up progress, they can't because they lack the legislative power. It's the moderates and fiscal conservatives within the Democratic Party that are the reason the bill has not yet been able to pass. That and the Congressional Budgeting Office is projecting an entirely different story from that of the Pres. Keep in mind these are experts hired by the Dems to give indepedent nonpartisan analysis and they predict the deficit skyrocket ing in addition to an unsustainable debt and RISING health care costs. Oh and have I mentioned that the Dems are afraid to pass it because public support has dropped like a stone. Those are just a few of their many issues. As for the selective outrage, YES I SAID IT, SELECTIVE OUTRAGE. Please spare me, those who "have never seen such disrespect" toward the office of the president have obviously been asleep the last eight years. Harry Reid called Dubya a liar and later had to apologize. Yes, the SENATE MAJORITY LEADER, not an obscure Congressman made that accusation. Not a peep. During the '05 State of the Union address to Congress Bush was heckled by the Dems as he discussed the urgency of Social Security Reform. The booing was so loud and racuous that he had to stop and wait for them to quiet down. But that "was only them voicing their dissent" right? Please. And does anyone remember the most recent incident? The heckling and taunting of Bush at the inauguration by Obama supporters was unheard of and unprecedented for ANY President. Ya'll understand that? NEVER BEFORE BEEN DONE. So pls sit down and be quiet and stop playing the race card. It wasn't racism when it was directed at Bush was it, or was it just pure hatred? I have no patience for convenient memory loss or just pure ignorance. Educate yourselves and try to take a more balanced uproach to issue like this. Peace

Why is it when white people

Why is it when white people do something wrong, they try and cover for them, give them a pass or make up an excuse???? When Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton snapped at those people in Africa because thay asked her what would President Clinton do in a particular situation, a commentator on MSNBC, stated she had a bad hair day, it was hot, she was tired etc. Now, this Rep. Joe Wilson, out and out, blantantly called our president a lie, not only in front of the entire congress, but the entire world. They're trying to say he was emotional. We all get emotional, but you can not just go around calling the President of the United States a lie all willy nilly. Definitely not a good look.

Ara's picture

I came across this article by

I came across this article by Walter R. Mears on yahoo news, he wrote about the “controversy” surrounding President Obama’s stay in school speech and what most caught my attention and in the simplest terms was this…..RESPECT …please read on. “But the underlying tone of the most vehement critics goes past the traditions of politics to the idea that schoolchildren shouldn't be listening to this guy because he shouldn't be president. The office, whoever the man in the White House, always has commanded respect. That is eroding in the era of nonstop talk shows and angry blogs. It has been an American tradition for losing candidates in presidential elections to urge their followers to respect the outcome, to say that the winner is their president, too. Episodes like the school speech flap say something different. “ Mr. Mears also goes on to say that “There were no Republican complaints in 1991 when President George H.W. Bush spoke at a Washington, D.C., school and told the students, "Write me a letter — I'm serious about this one — write me a letter about ways you can help us achieve our goals." Nor did Republicans claim that Ronald Reagan was trying to create a cult of personality, as some did this time, when he spoke to students at the White House in 1988, near the end of his second term. Answering questions, Reagan boasted of economic progress and a patriotic revival under his administration. He also said he opposed rigid gun controls or handgun bans.” Something to think about.

Fire: Please, Obama is a

Fire: Please, Obama is a mess! We Need Change, well America we got it. This health care bill is a HOT MESS! The guy was emotional, should he have been able to control it YES, but it was in the heat of the moment. Why does everyone in America especially black America think that he should get a pass when he blantly lies, but somehow because he is black we should ignore. If he was a white president, you would see much more outrage and outcry about the foolishness…but no white America dosen’t want to appear racist and black America dosen’t want to be viewed as a sell out…Oh by the way I AM BLACK, FEMALE, and a DEMOCRATE! Sorry fire but your all wet if you think "The guy was emotional" I might be able to buy that emotional BS if there was some type of confrontation or even if things got out of hand at one of those so-called "kkk oops I meant Town meetings" but this was not the case, I think we can all understand the many people oppose the President's plan on health care and there's nothing wrong with opposition. That's the way politics works, but the lack of respect that senator Joe Wilson showed went beyond that, and you can't tell me that if a Black senator had yelled "you lie!" to President George Bush that it would have merely been brushed off as " the guy got emotional"? GTH out of here with that!

I kinda get you. I feel that he (Wilson) felt like most people. About the illegal aliens getting health coverage. But we already care for them. They can go to the hospital and they can not be turned away. They can recieve wic and medicaid and food stamps. So what is he so mad about. we already take care of them. Even if they were able to get coverage. Why are you so adament about deniying care to people who need it. Also I do not Believe Obama when he says that this reform will not cost money. Get the ef outta here, if he can do that then he has magical powers. I think thats why the man was so mad. But he should have been respectful and proffesional.

@MissBliss AMEN! YOUR ARE SO

@MissBliss AMEN! YOUR ARE SO RIGHT, A BLACK PERSON OR PERSON OF COLOR WITH AN EDUCATION IS A BIG THREAT TO THEM! Joe Wilson of South Carolina is a racist plain and simple. Most of the state of south Carolina is racist so what are you going to do about it. I find it funny that we can openly criticize Obama but everyone had their head in the Sand when Bush was concern! WHERE WAS THE CRITICISM THEM WHEN WE NEEDED IT! This is balent racism and anyone who can't see it is dense. I was very proud of the President speech, I think it was one of his best one yet. Can't wait for the VMA's and to see the tribute. I believe they will do it bigger and better

President Obama was elected

President Obama was elected to lead this country becuz it was in GOD's plan. GOD is trying to tell our people that we need to go back to the days when there was unity amongst us. (This is why all these racists are being exposed) Stop supporting these buzinesses that don't care about us. Asians nail shops, the chinese food on the corner, the mainstream media that hate us, that degrades us, that tell us we are worthless and a nobody. Every morning I get up to watch the news, itz always about some white person and what they have done so wonderfully or about an abused white child or a missing white child. What about us, who's there for us to show us that we are of significant importance? That our children go missing, that our children are being stolen and abused, and we do great and wonderful things. There is no one there for us! Thatz why I don't watch the news and tv too much because itz a brainwashing technique - nothing but the Stockholm Syndrome. And these black athletes, movies stars etc fall privy to their nonsense. I mean they have money to pull together and start buying some media stations, banks, corporate industries etc. I mean this shish is sooo deep I can go on and on... Why is everyone surprised by that man's behavior? He's only doing what he was programmed to do from generations past...he feels that he is superior and President Obama is inferior and he basically can do or say what he wants. The media is spewing hate all day long about our president and we as a people won't be proactive about it. Stop watching their programs. We have the power to change and help the president make some changes. Besides, this country was built on our ancestors back! It is as much as ours it is theirs. It only takes one to make a change and itz a chain reaction thereafter, I've made my change to support (black businesses) and to build on the foundations that was set by our ancestors. We need to get back to unity and togetherness. Stop killing one another, stop putting us down, stop the hating. Rise up people, rise up and... What are you going to do to make a change? As the great late MJ said "All I wanna say is that they dont really care about us!"

You all may have thought the struggle was getting a black man into the of , but the real struggle will be combating the ignorant and malicious distortions of the facts that the have decided to fall back on. In the absence of any real plans to move this country forward, they are a sinking to new lows of promulgating outright lies. The republicans are TRYING their best to hide their rascism, but I can see right through it. They are IGNORANT and an embarrassment to the country!

MRS. les923 ELBA ~ OBAMA Stan #1: Truer words have never been spoken. Dare I say that Obama was invoking some MLK Jr. last night! And clearly the Republicans are feeling extremely threatened by this! The sheer disrespect displayed on national TV last night proves that racism is alive and well because if the President was white & even if any of the senators disagreed with a statement, speech or policy that the President is speaking on NO ONE would dare yell out liar like that. This just proves that anyone who thought the war was over with Obama’s Presidential win is VERY wrong………the war has only JUST begun!

I will read about it but refuse to look at his stupid grin anymore. by federalist49 Pennsylvania [Sep 10, 2009 8:26:43 AM]I was pleased to hear Mr. Wilson call out the President.

Non- South Caroliners, we can donate! DON’T SLEEP on THIS! I'm from South Carolina! and with people like him(which there are a lot in this state), I really would rather move than pay taxes here!

We need to get back in

We need to get back in election mode and fight for our president. The hate filled republican party just want to see he fail and it is a crying shame how out in the open they are with it. Those town hall meetings ain’t nothing but KKK 2.9. We need to help Obama and the Democratic Party build the future he talked about in his speech. The health care bill is something that our government has been trying to get approved since 1943 and we need to help make it happen in 2009!! I mean just here in TX a young guy was suppose to have a much needed surgery done and his family decided to wait until after graduation unbeknownst (sp) to them once he turned 18 his insurance company would not pay for it. Had they known that he would have had the surgery beforehand.
