Obama’s slippery move of placing language in his bill specifically stating that illegals would not be eligible for the government healthcare, but warding off efforts to enforce it through verification, is what made him a liar Wednesday night. His "don't ask, don't tell" approach was exposed by Joe WilsonAddison (Joe) Graves WilsonTrump calls North Carolina redistricting ruling ‘unfair’ Sacha Baron Cohen mulls arming toddlers with guns in inaugural episode Why civility in politics won't be getting any better MORE, to the point where Obama and congressional Democrats are terrified the media may decide to tell the truth and expose Obama and Democrats as liars. Thus the late-Friday scramble to change the bill to what Republicans have been arguing for all along took place as a means to cover the president's backside.

Now that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Democrat leaders are planning some sort of official action against Wilson, Republicans will feel more comfortable, confident and even encouraged to defend Wilson. At least some in the mainstream media will have to eventually admit the truth — that when Joe Wilson yelled, "You lie!" to Obama from his seat on the House floor, he may have been rude (on par with Democrats who repeatedly booed and heckled President George W. Bush), but Wilson was right.

Pelosi and congressional Democrats are poised to make a bigger hero out of Joe Wilson than he has already become. And they are shining a big spotlight on the liar-in-chief.
