"Ehhhh... Now let's move on." - Joe Walsh, Tea Party Republican
Congressman Joe Walsh is gearing up for the 2012 elections. He's going to face Tammy Duckworth for the Illinois 8th District. "What else has she done? Female, wounded veteran … ehhh,” he continued.
This is standard for conservatives. Once they are facing a Democrat with military service, they smear them or discount their service.
In the 1990's, Walsh a failed actor, proclaimed himself a fiscal conservative and social liberal, who supported Clinton's "Safe, Legal, and Rare" abortion plan.
In 2010, as Walsh was running for Congress for the third time, he pulled his thumb out of his ass, stuck it in the wind and declared himself a Tea Partier. Walsh's declaration was good enough for ignorant duped right-wingers who snuck Walsh into Congress. Since, his election Right-Wingers happily stand behind Joe Walsh because he insults President Obama.
Since, his election Walsh has been a shameless despicable conservative. He has done nothing. He's missed major votes in the U.S. House. Walsh is a deadbeat dad who owes more than $117,000 in missed child support payments. Walsh seems to have run for Congress to get some sweet, sweet Government welfare and healthcare insurance.
He has offered up nothing to help the Illinois constituents he claims to represent and has turned a eye towards making in-roads into the Alternate Conservative Reality and the Right-Wing culture of lies and slanders.
Congressman Joe Walsh is a shameless Tea Party Republican. He's the worst Representative in the US. Yes, worse than Michele Bachmann or Steve King.
And this isn't the first time Walsh has pissed on veterans. Walsh was recorded belching forth a red-faced tirade at Melissa Rakestraw, a USPS worker who lives in his district, when she dared to explain to Walsh that Wall Street and the Banks had crashed the economy. Walsh declared he was "sick of hearing that crap!" and "Don't blame the banks!"
Rakestraw also informed Walsh that his blind obedience to the Right-Wing agenda of destroying the Post Office would result in Veterans losing their jobs with the USPS and Walsh told her, "I don't care about the loss of public sector jobs."
But, none of this matters to Right-Wingers. They are going to Stand with Joe Walsh and support him simply because he "talks tough" and claims to be a Tea Party fighter. Tammy Duckworth correctly summed up Joe Walsh, "He’s not there to serve his constituents. He’s there to be the voice of the tea party.”
Time to go Joe and be true to your right-wing values and don't collect your Government welfare for work you didn't do...
