Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL): Obama Only Elected Because He’s Black

Tuesday, May 1, 2012

Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL), speaking at a town hall meeting, said President Obama was only elected president because he’s an African-American.

Said Walsh:

“He’s our first African-American president. The country voted for him because of that. It made us feel good about ourselves.”

He next went after Sen. John McCain:

“It helped that John McCain was about 142 years old.”

Walsh, you may recall, was in the news for being a deadbeat father who refused to pay his child support to his ex-wife Laura, who accused him of owing more than $117,000. The case was eventually settled.

    Walsh is a despicable racist. Flush the turd down the drain.

  2. Rachel says:

    The American political class is so dirty. Walsh is a true bottom feeder. A gutter snipe. How can his district keep electing him?

  3. ajihani says:

    I can see why Walsh’s wife divorced him.

  4. The Real Adam says:

    Joe Walsh tried in vain to weasel out of paying back child support.

    The irony here is rich. I mean, when you create children you take care of them. Even when you’re a rightwing bloviator with a paper-thin congressional record to point to as an accomplishment.

  5. Estacada says:

    I’m confused? Is Congressman Joe Walsh the lunatic who screamed “liar” at President Obama during the SOTU?

    These Tea Party kooks have all started to run together into one big pile of goo.

    I think the Teabagger you mean is Rep. Joe Wilson of South Carolina. Another pip.

    The U.S. Congress. What a class act. 😦
