The Hill reports that David All, principal of David All Group – “the nation’s first conservative web 2.0 agency” – just signed their most (in)famous client to-date, Congressman Joe Wilson (R, S. Carolina). Most will remember Joe Wilson as the person who shouted “you lie” at President Obama on Wednesday, September 9 during an address. (You can watch it here.) And social media users will recall that the congressman’s identity was first revealed on Twitter.
On Fox News’ FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace (transcript), the congressman adamantly declared that he will not apologize on the floor of The House, the place where he disrespected President Obama publicly, as requested (read: demanded) by house Democrats. He told Wallace:
I am not going to apologize again. I apologized to the president on Wednesday night. I was advised then that — thank you, now let’s get on to a civil discussion of the issues. But I — I’ve apologized one time. The apology was accepted by the president, by the vice president, who I know. I am not apologizing again. In fact, I’ve been proven correct on the issue of citizen verification. And in fact, the Senate adopted it on Friday, and then I’m very grateful on Friday night the White House has now — is now going to include it in their bill.
In other Joe Wilson news, his congressional website is back up with only a landing page containing his bio.
Wonder if this is All’s work in a recent tweet on Joe Wilson’s Twitter page.Category: News, web 2.0 | Tags: Barack Obama, Chris Wallace, David All, David All Group, Democrats, FOX News Sunday, Joe Wilson, new media strategist, The Hill, twitter, Youtube.com
