Perhaps WalshFreedom is the Rocky Mountain way, for the GOP to move forward in Illinois, after all Life Has Been Good To Me so Far, but the logic of congressman Joe Walsh makes me think The Smoker You Are The Player You Get…
His theatrics and rhetoric can be absurd, but the establishment of this country and state is not doing a lot of good right now and so I think this is a plus. Remember it was the tea party that got the gop off its social issues and war focus to lock on to the economy and I think while walsh strays from that-he’ll stay focused on the fiscal things which are important.
The other thought that I have is that he is just trying crow and strut like a rooster to stay in the spotlight so he can be a radio or TV talk show host. Wasn’t there something on here a while back that he is already lined up to do a radio show?

To quote the ever-articulate Richard M. Daley,
Yes, CK, it’s the word “they” that gets to me. Who are “they”? His constituents. The people he represented (well, some of them… I know; he ran in a very different district after he finished district-shopping). The people who voted. The people who were exposed to his message ad nauseum - and rejected it. Walsh needs to quit acting as though a bunch of extraterrestrials picked him up out of his seat on the House floor and deposited him back in whatever suburban cul-de-sac he inhabits. Real Illinois men and women - the ones whose freedom he now says he wants to protect - voted him out of there. The hubris, offensiveness, and willful denial evident in his new message are staggering, even by his standards.
I will say right now that if Walsh runs for Governor I will personally start a super PAC to help him get nominated. It will take donations from anyone and everyone who would like to see him receive the GOP nomination. I’ll even make it dark-money.
There are few things that would please me more than seeing that happen.

This guy really loves himself. Politicians need egos, but they also need the ability to not flaunt those egos.
I read a lot on the web, and for most websites it is rarely worth going past the first half dozen comments . . . except this one. You guys are the best!

You should really go to his Facebook page and read all his supporters comments including asking him to run for Senate, the Governor, etc. Also people wondering where they can see him next, and what took him so long to get on fb
