WASHINGTON (CNN) – Rep. Joe Wilson's wife Roxanne has been diagnosed with swine flu, the congressman's office confirmed to CNN on Thursday.
The South Carolina Republican who gained instant notoriety in September for shouting "You lie!" at the president told The Hill newspaper on Thursday that he plans to keep his distance from his wife when he returns home this weekend.
Wilson said he plans to get the H1N1 vaccination soon, but only after "the majority of the American people" receive it.
Rep. Greg Walden, R-Washington, is the only member of Congress to have contracted swine flu. He tweeted the news on Monday, revealing plans to head off to "seclusion for a while" while he recovers.
Why does this guy's wife have the ability to get tested for H1N1, when the rest of us with flu like symptoms are told by our doctors that they are no longer doing tests for swine flu?
She gets Swine Flu and her husband Lies like a stuffed pig........how appropriate.
I guess the real swine gave it to her.
Hmmm. Interesting. I wonder how old she is. The New York Times had an article the other day that claimed most people over 50 are just not getting it (the Swine Flu).
I wish her well, I had it a month ago and it is tough. I know she is getting the best of medical care, in a setting were there are no illegals getting health care and everyone has good health insurance. If I were her I would always want Joe to keep his distance anyway, his hate and bigotry might be contagious.
I am sorry that Mrs. Wilson is ill but maybe it had to do with fact that Rep. Joe Wilson, her husband is a pig.
she got the swine flu from the biggest swine in SC...her husband
Is this a joke? His wife is home burning up with fever and body aches and he promises to "whoever" that he won't get near his wife???? That confirms a lot about him calling the president of the US a liar while he is a guest speaker in the House of Representatives. Maybe early dementia??
before any of you liberal know it all's say what I know you are going to you had better think about the karma that will be heading your way...... people are dying from an epidemic that our country can't seem to figure out how to get out to the people who need it.... i find it hard to fathom these so called delays that should not be happening yet the CDC is on every week tallying up the death tolls because of the govt. lackidazical approach to helping it's citizens..... when the manufacturers of the vaccine were asked about the delays they all said that they are on scedule at 95% procuctivity yet they can't figure out how to distribute because the GOVT. is charged to deliver instead of private industry..... and these idiots want to run health care..... give me a break
I guess if he plans on getting the vaccine only after "the majority of the American people" receive it, he's not getting it. He lies!
Well pigs do LIE together (LOL)!
I thought you couldn't catch swine flu from a pig.
along with being Mr. Rudeness I guess we can add Mr. Sensitivity to Wilson's credentials with his saying that he will stay away from his wife. Maybe she could use a little TLC.
Joe, I know we've had our disagreements in the past, but please give Roxanne my best wishes for a speedy recovery.
President Obama, Nobel Laureate
Too easy, too many swine jokes associated with this man.
This is the same beleaguered wife who wanted to know which idiot said "You lie" to the President. Poor woman married to that pol. I hope she recovers quickly – and I sure hope the real Mr. Liar himself doesn't tell her she wasn't really sick from that fabricated "flu" that the administration is foisting off on the public as a pretext for dangerous vaccinations...
Hope she has her papers
Well... I love the kiss of Karma... so sweet...
What's the old saying? "Those who lie down with dogs get up with fleas." Well, those who lie down with swine....
Question will Congressman Wilson take his wife back to S. C. to a private hospital or like the rest of the Congress go to a government run hospital?
Congressman Wilson you "LIE"
This idiot wasn't newsworthy before, he's even less newsworthy now... c'mon CNN.
Her getting swine flu is no surprise, she's married to a pig.
God is sending another Republican a message...
the government is coming for you joe wilson.
the bell tolls for THEE.
Boy Joe, I guess someone up there is listening to our prayers! Hopefully your wife will sneeze on you. But unlike many uninsured Americans your family's insurance is paid through American taxpayer dollars!
