Yeah it takes a lot of courage to not engage in a civil debate. The republicans had their own response speech on ABC immediately after the speech.
That was the appropriate time and place. A congressional rep. yelling out during the president's speech was violation of house rules and good sense.
If no one followed 'decorum,' there would be zero debate in Congress - no one could be given their fair opportunity to be heard.
The rules exist for a reason - to protect the right to speak, not to impede it.
