Well, I guess Superman was too busy to try to save the world this time... Eyeroll...
I used to like Joe Walsh before I really learned who he was. This dislike I currently have for Walsh is certainly not a new phenomenon. It started far before his announcing his self-serving and obstructionist attempt to harm America's progress under President Trump. I saw the fakeness in him when I was a guest on his show in 2018.
He attempted to cast Trump and his supporters as an out of control hate mob, when during a Trump rally, Trump supporters expressed their feelings for CNN's Jim Acosta. I could see that the seeds had been sewn for what we are witnessing from Walsh today.
To know who he is, you really have to go back deep into his history and career. He was a one-term legislator in Illinois who used to describe himself as a "Moderate Republican." Moderate Republican in the State of Illinois, a state that produced the Communist-In-Chief Barack Obama, the modern-day Boss Hogg of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, and who could forget the Governor known simply as Blago, Rod Blagojevich.
For a brief period after his career as an "Illinois Republican" in the State Legislature, he took advantage of the anti-Obama Tea Party wave in winning a term in the House of Representatives in 2010. Surprisingly, he actually represented himself as an upstanding conservative for his two year term, earning what seemed like a more than respectable scorecard as from the Heritage Foundation.
A deeper analysis of his voting record however, reveals a supposed "Conservative" legislator who sided with Union corruption to artificially raise wages that were pilfered by those Unions at a great cost to the taxpayer, and resulted in less projects and jobs for working class Americans.
Since his loss in 2012, Walsh has attempted to cash in on his career in politics by taking joining the rank of Conservative talk radio hosts. First, he attempted to paint himself as a "Conservative Firebrand," making comments regarding President Barack Obama's position on immigration, saying we should secure the borders with "moats and alligators" if necessary and calling the former president "a Muslim."
He also stated that America, “LOWERED the bar for Obama. He was held to a lower standard cuz he was black.”
He since has attempted to cast President Trump as a villain, while issuing empty apologies for his long history of controversial and borderline racist statements in casting himself a "changed man" deserving of the Republican nomination for President.
Joe Walsh is a fraud. Joe Walsh is NOT a Conservative. Conservatives believe in personal responsibility. Personal responsibility INCLUDES paying support for your children.
Would you vote for someone who was sued over failing to make payments of $117,437 in child support to his ex-wife and three children. Back in 2011, while earning a Congressional salary, Walsh was sued by his ex-Wife Laura Walsh who asked an Illinois judge to suspend his driver’s license until he paid his child support. Walsh became delinquent in his payments despite loaning his own campaign $35,000, and paying himself back at least $14,200 for the loans. At the time, Walsh claims he failed to make the payments because he “had no money.”
This is the man who claims "moral superiority" over President Trump. But, he hasn't much to worry about as far as getting called out on it by the Trump-hating mainstream media. As anti-semitic as they have become, they would probably give Hitler a pass if he challenged Trump for the 2020 Republican nomination.
Sober minds however, should not be swayed by Walsh.
Say no to Joe in 2020.
