Wilson heads to Republican Conference meeting

Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.), who may face an official reprimand from the House after interrupting the president's speech, thanked his Republican colleagues on the way to a GOP Conference meeting Tuesday.

Democratic leadership will likely present a resolution rebuking Wilson today for shouting "you lie!" during President Barack Obama's joint session speech last week.

The fifth-term Republican tweeted:

On way to Republican Conference meeting, my colleagues have been courageous to encourage me, I am very grateful for prayers and support, Joe

It's also interesting to note Wilson signed the tweet himself. The Hill reported yesterday that staff members tweeting for Wilson started to identify themselves after the congressman hired new media strategists to tweet for him.

Yesterday, House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) said he will oppose any resolution against Wilson. Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele also criticized a possible resolution.

"Democrats don’t want an apology. They want a side show – something to shift the focus away from their government-run experiment on health care," he said in a statement today.
