Joe Walsh took time out of his busy schedule of not doing anything for his constituents to yell at them. Walsh is not "passionate". Joe Walsh is an uncouth lout, a muling brat, who when faced with facts which tear down his beloved Blame the Poor rhetoric resorts to the Argument of the Red Face and Loud Voice.
In just one year Representative Joe Walsh has shown the ugly face of modern conservative thought. Joe Walsh has no facts to back up his position but if you yell loud enough and swear you win the argument. Thus we have Joe Walsh screaming about how the 99% know the Republican Big Zombie Lie is false:
However, here is the truth, Deregulation and Private Sector Banks not Fannie and Freddie caused the Housing Bubble:
During those same explosive three years [2004-2006], private investment banks — not Fannie and Freddie — dominated the mortgage loans that were packaged and sold into the secondary mortgage market. In 2005 and 2006, the private sector securitized almost two thirds of all U.S. mortgages, supplanting Fannie and Freddie, according to a number of specialty publications that track this data.Barry Ritholtz has an excellent dissection of the Big Zombie Lie. But, the Republicans and Wall Street Thieves will never let go of the Big Zombie Lie and will never let the truth about the effects of their negligent deregulation schemes be spoken.
Conservative think tanks spend days crafting thousands of essays blaming Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Fannie and Freddie who forced Banks and Private Lending Firms to loan to those shiftless lazy Poor Deadbeats. Not Deadbeats like Joe Walsh mind you, but *cough* minorities *cough* deadbeats...
That's what the disgraceful Joe Walsh was screaming. Walsh is a disgrace to the office he represents, the male gender and humanity. But, the Rightwing slaves and bigots love him. Too bad the people of his district won't get a chance to vote him out, which they'd do in landslide numbers, but nonetheless in one more year Joe will be looking for work.
And that!!! is the reason Walsh is acting like this; Walsh is busy positioning himself for his lucrative career as a shill for the Corporate Hegemony which controls the US Government. But, regardless Walsh is also an uncouth lout unfit to even be a Congressman and contemptuous of the hardworking Illinois people he supposedly represents.
Postal Worker Melissa Rakestraw who handled the screaming Joe Walsh with aplomb and grace just handed the ignorant block-headed Walsh his ass on the Ed Show. Besides the truncated video everyone has seen from Walsh, in the extended version Joe showed his utter disregard for America and his complete devotion to conservative evil because he's also pushing the bullshit rightwing mantra that by destroying the Post Office via selling off the lucrative postal routes to Corporate control and eliminating thousands of jobs he'll help the Nation. Think Progress has more on the graceful Rakestraw and the ridiculous and disgraceful screaming Congressman Walsh.
