A few months ago, Freshman Republican, Incumbent Congressman Joe Walsh, from Illinois, had attacked his opponent, Tammy Duckworth, a retired Lieutenant Colonel, who lost both of her legs and a part of her right arm in Iraq. He also had the audacity to add: “What else has she done?”.
Colonel Duckworth was challenging Congressman Walsh in his re-election bid. Also, Walsh went on to say that she is not a True Hero (whatevdf that means). Congressman, Ms. Duckworth not only served her country in a War-Zone; but, she has also helped other Veterans as a Deputy Secretary of the Veterans Affairs.
Well, Mr. “Tea Party (whatever that means) favorite”, it is not Ms. Duckworth’s fault that you chose not to serve. Numerous Veterans and Veterans’ Groups has called for his resignation. You certainly can stand wherever you wish on the Political Spectrum; but, you DO NOT attack veterans–especially ones like Col. Duckworth, who have given so much–for your own personal frustrations.
Soon to be “Mr. Walsh”, Colonel Duckworth actually served in combat to protect your right to truly be a Jackass! Enjoy!
