Tammy Duckworth: Joe Walsh Is 'An Extremist Loudmouth For The Tea Party'

Tammy Duckworth: Joe Walsh is 'an extremist loudmouth for the Tea Party'

Tammy Duckworth didn't mince words tonight in describing the waste of political space that is Joe Walsh. I especially liked how she pointed out how useless Walsh has been in his two years in congress, typically working against his constituents interests.

via The Ed Show blog:

Speaking on Tuesday's The Ed Show, Duckworth that it was "irresponsible" of Walsh to talk that way about military service. "Our 23 million veterans have done more in one day in uniform than he's done for this country," she said.

"He's trying to muddy the waters," Duckworth continued. "He's just trying to shift the focus away from the fact that he's done nothing for the people of the district. He's irresponsbile in his words and he's irresponsile in his actions."

Duckworth added that Walsh has "done nothing in his two years in Congress other than be an extremist loudmouth for the Tea Party."
