As per Yahoo News, "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi directed a fierce frown at him; first lady Michelle Obama pursed her lips and shook her head from side to side. Vice President Joe Biden looked down and shook his head, too."
Well there you have it, the ministers of good etiquette have cast their shadow upon the individual Congressman whose emotions got the better of him. Mercy, please.
Seems I remember from history class that in the making of this nation, with some of the most intellectual government representatives this country has EVER had, the congressional meetings/conferences were quite "heated," with debates, name calling and likewise. Seems people do this when they feel passionate about the subject being discussed. Too bad Nancy Pelosi, Michele Obama and Joe Biden missed their chance to LOOK DOWN THEIR NOSES to the likes of John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison.....hmm where we would be today if those former persons had been around at that time?
