“You Lie” moment during President Obama’s address to nation came from Rep. Jeff Landry (R-La.) holding up sign saying “DRILLING = JOBS.”
Lawmakers being disrespectful to President Obama, that’s a common occurrence coming from the Republicans towards the president. We just couldn’t watch a speech without a lawmaker being rude. Rep. Jeff Landry (R-La.) held up a sign that read: DRILLING = JOBS as the president spoke. Of course, he didn’t yell this out, like his colleague Rep. Joe Wilson’s (R-SC) “You lie!” outburst, but this is disrespectful and unprecedented. Landry held the sign up when Obama acknowledged that Republicans might have ideas different from his $447 billion American Jobs package.
