Are these rules retroactive to January 2001?

House guidelines for Presidential put-downs:

House Rules Committee Chairwoman Louise Slaughter (D-NY) has released a helpful, updated primer for members regarding their conduct on the floor and in committees.

Especially useful: The section on how to properly insult the executive branch in the in the chamber.

"Disgrace" and "nitwits" -- okay.

"Liar" or "sexual misconduct" -- ixnay.

    Is it okay to for half the congress to boo the president during a State of the Union Speech?

    This was fun to watch. I didn't see it that night.

  • Does this only apply to the opposition party, (not that there really is one) or does it apply to all of them, especially Pelosi co. who seem to have a problem with misappropriating words as well a our tax dollars. Also, does it extend to how they refer to us, their constituents, you know we the people who finance their paychecks and perks? These bottom dwelling vermin insult the term dirty politican.

    For all the whatnot over this outburst, and the loud din of demands falling on deaf ears for a retroactive quid pro quo for the last President who was called "liar" and worse, I surely would love to see George W come out with a statement that he's not asking for any sort of "apology" for the crap said against him by members of the opposing party in Congress, but does expect and demand apologies from every representative and senator who ever said anything as bad or worse against our troops in war.

    But that's just my opinion.
