    Rep. Walsh says Duckworth isn't a 'true' hero

    Doesn't get any better for Republicans....Attacking a veteran who lost both legs in an attack. Not a "true hero". Is it because she is a woman or a Democrat?

    Rep. Joe Walsh of Illinois, considered one of the most vulnerable freshmen in Congress, is seen on a video criticizing Democratic opponent Tammy Duckworth for talking too much about her military service.

    "Now I'm running against a woman who, my God, that's all she talks about. Our true heroes, it's the last thing in the world they talk about," Walsh, R-Ill., can be heard saying about Duckworth.


    The video was posted on ThinkProgress, a blog that's an outlet of the left-leaning Center for American Progress.

    Duckworth, a former Obama appointee, lost both her legs and partial use of her right arm when a rocket-propelled grenade hit the Black Hawk helicopter she was piloting in Iraq. She told USA TODAY in a 2005 interview that she wanted to fly Army helicopters because "I wanted to take the same risks as the guys."

    Absolutely disgusting. Reminds me of the GOP thugs booing a proud solider that also happened to be gay during a GOP presidential debate in the recent primaries.

    Vial animals they are.

    "WALSH: Understand something about John McCain. His political advisers, day after day, had to take him and almost throw him against a wall and hit him against the head and say, “Senator, you have to let people know you served! You have to talk about what you did!” He didn’t want to do it, wouldn’t do it. Day after day they had to convince him. Finally, he talked a little bit about it, but it was very uncomfortable for him. That’s what’s so noble about our heroes. Now I’m running against a woman who, my God, that’s all she talks about. Our true heroes, it’s the last thing in the world they talk about. That’s why we’re so indebted and in awe of what they’ve done."

    Hmmm. Not quite what you thought it was now is it?

    Because Libs love soundbites, "That&#8217;s what&#8217;s so noble about our heroes. Now I&#8217;m running against a woman who, my God, that&#8217;s all she talks about. Our true heroes, it&#8217;s the last thing in the world they talk about. That&#8217;s why we&#8217;re so indebted and in awe of what they&#8217;ve done."

    Walsh is right, Libs like Sen Blumenthal loved to talk about their military service

    I love it when Liberals stop spitting on troops, burning American flags, calling vets babykillers and start faux "caring" about them.
