Tea Party Congressman Joe Walsh Blows Gasket at Constituent: VIDEO


Deadbeat dad Tea Party Congressman Joe Walsh (R-IL), who was in our headlines recently for getting a 'pro-family' award (that also left Lawrence O'Donnell aghast) from the Family Research Council, also apparently has some anger management issues.

At a recent constituent town hall at Uno Restaurant in his district of Gurnee, Illinois, Walsh flipped his lid, Think Progress reports:

After several constituents accurately pointed out that bank lobbyists occupy key positions within Congress, the SEC, and other oversight bodies that are supposed to supervise bank practices, Walsh began sticking his finger close to his constituent’s faces, yelling, “quiet for a minute or I’ll have to ask you to leave.”

Ranted Walsh: "’s not the private marketplace that created this mess. What created mess was your government, which has demanded for years that everybody be in a home. And we’ve made it easy as possible for people to be in homes. [...] Don’t blame banks, and don’t blame the marketplace for the mess we’re in right now! I am tired of hearing that crap! This pisses me off! Too many people don’t listen."

  4. This dope is so out of a job and will go back to having a reason for not paying his child support next election cycle. The people in his area -- even Tea Party members -- are having buyers remorse over this dope. He's a loudmouth know-nothing spincter.

  11. As I watched this, I could only think, "Wow, this is going to make a great campaign spot that can be used against him in the next election."

    Give these Tea Party enough rope and they will hang themselves.

  12. Ah, just another D.C narcissist, thinking that he really is as intelligent as he ought to be. No chance of that ever happening!

  15. I know that voice. It was Dad's voice only used in the privacy of family. My three brothers still use that voice. That voice is why I have no contact with my brothers. I'm sick, that voice made me think of home.

  16. aside from the obvious issue he has of being unable to tolerate disagreement, he also is "tired" of government "propping up" the postal service.

    I wonder if he made the same complaint when government (using our money) "propped up" Morgan-Chase and Bank of America.

  17. He's not yelling at a constituent. His constituents are who he's defending. The Banks. That's who he represents.

  18. How did Rosie O'Donnell get in this video?

  19. @Gus I can relate. If they can't win an argument they just YELL LOUDER!

  21. Oh, yeah, this is the ol' TB Equation:

    The volume level of a Teabagger's voice always correlates exactly in proportion to their lack of knowledge on any matters about government or society.

  22. It was George W Bush who championed the "Ownership Society". It was the big banks and the Wall street con artists who put out the call for more mortgage "product" they could package into worthless bonds to be passed off on suckers while they bet against them. Mortgage companies, brokers and banks responded to that call by lowering lending standards to a pulse.

    This guy is a lying ass. He should be in county jail right now for evading child support laws.

  23. The man is nukin futz and a little retarded but you gotta love his passion :)

  24. When Joe tells these constituents to shut up or get out, I'm surprised they don't opt for the latter. I would let my rep know this sort of behavior in the face of our concerns loses my vote.

  25. I LOVE the woman in this video. She's onto something. And more and more Americans are.

    The line this guy is pushing is the EXACT SAME line pushed on us by Reagan-Republicans for 30 years. I'm pleased to see people not swallowing it like they used to.

    (Note that the Tea Partiers are like abused children, defending the worthiness of the abuse they recieve. Sad. I feel bad for them.)

    Reagan- deluded Republican, saw no value in gov't; hand reigns of all to business, simply.

    Bush Sr.- Reagan protege

    Bill Clinton- Reagan Republican, elected by swallowing government-is-worthless line and selling it better than the Republicans

    George W.-never had a clue; Wall Street and oil OWNED him from the start. Always a PUPPET, however dopey-happy.

    Obama- honest guy with a head on his shoulders. walked into this mess, the culture of corrupt gov't. Hopefully he hasn't become fully corrupted by it. We need a guy like the candidate-Obama. Come thru, man; remember your roots!!!
