I'm becoming more and more convinced that there is a double standard in the media and Washington. Here's another example.
Does anyone remember that back in 2005, President Bush, during his State of the Union Address, was booed by members of congress. I don't remember anyone, Republicans particularly, protesting and demanding that anyone apologize to the president for their behavior.
Fastforward to 2009. Last Wednesday, during President Obama's campaign speech for healthcare reform, Rep. Joe Wilson a Republican, said that the president lied about illegal aliens' being covered under the plan. Rep. Wilson apologized to the president the next day, but that isn't enough. The democrats are demanding a public apology from the floor of the house.
I'm not condoning Rep. Wilson's behavior, but it seems to me that the booing of the president was OK when it was Bush who was being booed and called names, but now that the shoe is on the other foot, it is not OK.
It was childish behavior in both cases.
