Republican Rep. Joe Walsh of Illinois is under fire this Fourth of July for complaining that his Democratic challenger, a veteran who lost her legs in Iraq, talks too much about her military service.


Tammy Duckworth, a Black Hawk pilot, was awarded the Purple Heart after her helicopter was hit by an RPG in 2004. She lost her legs and some use of her right arm in the explosion.


At a town hall meeting on Sunday, Walsh complained that he is “running against a woman who, I mean my God, [military service] is all she talks about.”


The first-term congressman also suggested that Duckworth is not a “true hero,” while comparing her unfavorably to Arizona Sen. John McCain.

    If given a choice between voting for Joe Walsh or someone else I would leave it blank. Only in Illinois do they find these people?

    Shes going to kick his butt in November. Conservatives like to wave the flag and drive big trucks with eagles and flags but turn a blind eye to the people who lost their limbs and laugh at the thought of giving them healthcare.

    No service member needs to be trashed like this especially Lt. Col. Tammy Duckworth by a douche bag like Joe Walsh who never served, and is a dead beat dad who had to be sued for $100,000.00 back child support. He only won his seat in the House by 291 votes in 2010, and now his district has been realigned with more Democrats making him the most vulnerable Republican House member in November to get defeated. Knowing this he is on a swift boat smear campaign accusing her of not being a true hero. All veterans should be outraged by this low life's remarks.

    So how on earth the the local repubs not defeat this guy in the primaries? Or do you think maybe the dems voted for him in the primaries just to have an easy win for Duckworth? I would not vote for this guy who would?

    A cheap slap indicative of the hole Cons have had to crawl into since Obama took their national defense baby from them. If you catch an Iraq or Afghanistan vet running on the GOP ticket, it's like overkill.

    I haven't seen such evil trashing of a true American hero since the 'swift boating' of John Kerry.

    Both her and McCain are heroes for what they risked and sacrificed fighting for this country. It wouldn't surprise me if Walsh and others like him praise someone like Allen West who tortures other human beings and fear mongers for a living.
