Walking Out on the President

It's just one of those weeks. So much of the stories this week have revolved around the President and this incident with Cong Shimkus is just the latest.
Near the end of the Presidential Address to Congress, Rep. Shimkus of Collinsville got up and walked out of the House chamber.
It's certainly not on the level of the heat that Cong Wilson is getting for his outburst, but Shimkus' walk has some wondering if he was right to do that.
Shimkus' office tells me they're getting emails and messages that are running 50-50 on opinions.
Shimkus was not apologetic, but rather in a statement says he was frustrated with President Obama for not offering ant new ground on health care and not bringing Republicans on board.
