More Liberal Hypocrisy!

Barrel, fish, trigger, BOOM!

Liberals and the MSM are all wee weed up over Representative Wilson's shouting "You lie!" during Obama's little speech last night but they forget that they booed President Bush during his 2005 State Of The Union address.

Ain't YouTube wonderful?

Glenn Reynolds [the Instapundit] has it about right:

I’m finding it hard to get excited about this. It was a breach of decorum and civility. But someone who says “get in their face” and “punch back twice as hard” has little standing to bring that up. If you want to benefit from traditions of civility, you should respect them, and that has hardly been a hallmark of this administration, which has gone out of its way to try to demonize and shout down opponents.

Ann Althouse points out that Wilson's outburst came shortly after Obama charged from the podium that his opponents were liars, and that Obama's remarks were quite clearly falsehoods.
