Deadbeat Dad Rep. Joe Walsh “knows” a hero when he sees one, and losing multiple limbs in a conflict he was too chickenshit to fight just don’t cut it:
“Understand something about John McCain. His political advisers, day after day, had to take him and almost throw him against a wall and hit him against the head and say, “Senator, you have to let people know you served! You have to talk about what you did!” He didn’t want to do it, wouldn’t do it. Day after day they had to convince him. Finally, he talked a little bit about it, but it was very uncomfortable for him. That’s what’s so noble about our heroes. Now I’m running against a woman who, my God, that’s all she talks about. Our true heroes, it’s the last thing in the world they talk about. That’s why we’re so indebted and in awe of what they’ve done.”
First of all, anyone who had ever actually WATCHED John McCain run for office knows full well he never actually HAD to talk about his service. As a known Vietnam War POW, he was known to the entire country, and Walsh knows it. Second, I believe Duckworth’s being compared to WALSH, not McCain, and the comparison shows a commitment to service and values on Duckworth’s part – if Walsh is crying it’s because he’s known to be, shall we say, lacking in this department.
Here’s the vid:
You know, even for a Tea Party-fluffing, hypocritical, supremacist piece of garbage GOP candidate, this is LOW. This should be hung around his neck and he should be asked about it EVERY SINGLE DAY until Election Day.
