Watch the whole tape, watch Obama point the finger and call prominent politicians (Sarah Palin chief amongst them) liars and then listen as Rep. Joe Wilson reacts (at about 2:13 into the video)... the look on Pelosi's face is priceless.
Joe Wilson is an American hero.
Barack Obama is a liar.
UPDATE: Via e-mail, this link that substantiates Joe Wilson's claim:
The president is right that his proposal specifically says the plan does not extend to illegal immigrants. But one of the most undercovered stories in national politics is the fact that congressional Democrats have gutted the plan's enforcement provisions. This is from a recent column by Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, the ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee:
The Democrats' bill in the House, H.R. 3200, contains gaping loopholes that will allow illegal immigrants to receive taxpayer-funded benefits. And these loopholes are no accident.
The legislation contains no verification mechanism to ensure that illegal immigrants do not apply for benefits. Republicans offered an amendment to close this loophole -- it would have required verification using the existing methods that are already in place to verify eligibility for other federal benefits programs. But, when they were asked to put the language of the bill where their words were, in a party-line vote, House Democrats rejected the amendment to require verification and close this loophole.
This column appeared in The Hill, not World Net Daily. The Hill is the respected, influential publication of Capitol Hill. It fact-checks claims. And Smith is exactly right -- enforcement provisions were gutted.
And that makes Barack Obama a liar. Bald-faced prevaricator. In Chief.
UPDATE II: Michelle brings us an 'unruly' moment the MSM will ignore:
