    And do you agree with General Wesley Clark's statement during the 2008 campaign that getting shot down doesn't qualify anybody to be President?

    There is no attempt to distract. And if I didn't find the debating of politics fun I wouldn't be here. "Desperate" is funny. I'll try not to lose you on this one: Gen. Clark in essence said the same thing about McCain that Walsh said about Duckworth. That her military experience, in and of itself, does not qualify her for the job. See how easy that was? It is relevant.

    I've only skimmed this thread so I'm not sure what you're getting at, but I'd agree with that. Certainly, a person's military service, especially in combat, is very relevant to assessing character and someone like that automatically has greater respect from me, but getting shot down does not, in itself, make someone qualified to be President.

    Thanks -- that's new to me. I guess Kerry wasn't the only one who was swiftboated.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    I agree with it too. And that was what Walsh said about Duckworth. You're a military hero but that alone doesn't qualify you for Congress. I don't recall anybody on either side of the aisle not understanding or disagreeing with Clark.

    That is not what he said.

    "Now I'm running against a woman who, I mean-- my God-- that's all she talks about," Walsh told an audience in Elk Grove, Ill. "Our true heroes, the men and women who served us, it's the last thing in the world they talk about."
    That is pretty clearly saying she is not a "true hero".

    Re: Rep. Joe Walsh stands by accusation Tammy Duckworth politicizes her military serv

    So when he's not demogoging his opponent's military service and heroism, what issues does Walsh talk about?


    Not paying his child support....

    "Joe personally loaned his campaign $35,000, which, given that he failed to make any child support payments to Laura because he `had no money' is surprising," Laura Walsh's attorneys wrote in the motion. "Joe has paid himself back at least $14,200 for the loans he gave himself."..."

    Joe Walsh Sued For More Than $100,000 In Child Support
    Interesting how after a year and a half he finally paid his child support just a few weeks ago and just in time for the election.

    I really don't think Biff er uh Walsh is going to get re-elected. He bullys his own constituants....

    Rep. Joe Walsh yells at his constituents - YouTube

    That guy is on something more than just caffine.
