    Who is Joe Walsh to criticize anyone, especially Duckworth. Walsh is a deadbeat dad who owes over $117,000 in Child Support. Why is Walsh not in jail? If he didn't have money and was a working stiff, he would have been jailed on contempt charges and forced to pay his support. This is a guy that was elected to Congress? who, in their right mind would vote for him. This is nothing new for him, even though he couldn't pay his support for his children, he lent his Congressional campaign $30,000 and took his gfriend to Mexico. And he has the audacity to criticize anyone. Walsh is another Tea Party Rep. that did just what all Tea Party Candidates elected did...nothing. They did name some Post Offices, but not one jobs bill. Walsh needs to stay in the Republican Party, they need the extra hot air that he can provide.Walsh is an embarrassment to the Sate of Illinois and of the United States. If Walsh wants to make up for his lack of Military Service, he can always volunteer....as a Target for the Taliban.

    Sounds to me like Americans are slowly deciding to lose their freedom to a military dictatorship. I mean if a military record has the slightest thing to do with being a member of congress. How did the helicopter crash happen? Was she flying it? Was it pilot error or was she shot down? If she is going to run on her military record alone let"s hear the details of that record. McCain wasn't hero in my books. Shot down after a few easy missions and then spilled huts guts to a Camera within hours of being caught.
