Regarding Obama. "We did not vet him," Walsh continued. "Your profession did not vet him as much we should.



Vetting? Let's take a look at Mr. Walsh.
Walsh critiques the President for his failure to understand the economy. Let's take a look at Walsh's economy.
Walsh lost his Evanston Read More... $3,300 per month house in upscale Winnetka.

He is being suied $117,437 by his former wife for unpaid child support for his three kids. Per Ccurt documents whle owing this mony he has taken trips to Mexico and Italy with his girlfriend. He has had his driver's license suspended three times to force payment (and then drive on the suspended license until he was arrested). The court has threatened to garnish his wages.

Walsh might be willing to strand his kids but he has no problems using them as props. In his "Obama is lying video" in which he claimed there was plenty of money to pay the national debts without raising the debt ceiling, he said:: I wont place one more dollar of debt upon the backs of my kids and grandkids unless we structurally reform the way this town spends money!Walsh may well be the poorest member of Congress. His estimated net worth is between negative $481,994 and negative $153,001. But now, Walsh is earning $174,000 as a member of Congress. Congressman actually receive annual compensation of $285,000 when benefits are included.Hope his kids get some.

Nothing wrong with being poor, but it seems like Walsh has a history of making very poor financial decisions AND yet he still believes he can critique the President in an area where his own track record is miserable.

1. What's the difference between Joe Walsh and a bucket of KFC extra crispy chicken?
The bucket actually feeds a family of four.

10. No one did. He surprised everybody and won by 500 votes.
And now his congressional district no longer exists. He is only a passing problem.
