Who Should Be Disapproved Of?

This afternoon, the House of Representatives adopted a resolution of disapproval, condemning Joe Wilson’s “you lie!” interjection in President Obama’s speech to Congress last week. The vote was 240-179, almost entirely along party lines. The Democrats’ hypocrisy is demonstrated by the fact that during the Bush administration, they voted down a similar motion when Pete Stark–one of their own–not only called President Bush a liar, but said that Bush was sending soldiers to Iraq “to get their heads blown off for the president’s amusement.”
More important, as I noted earlier today, the Democrats’ strategy of trying to demonize their opponents in order to deflect attention away from the content of their health care proposal–puzzling from the beginning–has been a failure.
