Public Education re: Office President USA
Conversations regarding the character of South Carolina (R.) Rep. Joe Wilson's political outburst on September 10, 2009; during a speech being given to Congress by President Obama on the Health Bill; are being included in international news.
Fundamental to any consideration of this matter is the breech of protocol to the Office of the President of the United States. This is irrespective of who holds the position. Further the political deportment of Rep. Wilson exemplifies a disregard for the role of the President of the United States as Commander in Chief.
Being that Rep. Wilson and his son were both in the military they know what it means to exercise conduct 'unbecoming an officer and a gentleman'.
The actions of Rep. Wilson have caused former President Jimmy Carter to comment. This indicates, in some measure, that there is a breech to the security of the United States that reflects the nation's constitutional History.
Thank you for the opportunity to comment.
