We've talked about Joe Walsh before. the $117,000 he owes in child support and other such hypocrisies. today brings this:Rep. Joe Walsh: Media Protects President Obama Because He is Black By Ashley Portero | September 22, 2011 9:27 PM EDT Rep. Joe Walsh, who is widely considered to be the biggest media hound among freshman in the U.S. House of Representatives, has done it again.The Illinois Republican had made a number of outrageous statements since he was elected, many of which have been directed at President Barack Obama; in particular, his race. For instance, in a May interview with Slate, Walsh insisted that the only reason Obama was elected because he is an articulate black man that appealed to the nation's collective sense of white guilt.While speaking with the Media Research Center's Brent Bozell on Wednesday, Obama's race once again came into play. During the interview, Bozell asked Walsh why he thought the mainstream media keeps defending Obama when he is "playing class warfare and race warfare games." In response, Walsh essentially said the media is invested in the success of the nation's first black president, and therefore go to extreme lengths to defend his policies.[/break1]ibtimes.com/articles/218636/20110922/rep-joe-walsh-media-protects-president-obama-because-he-is-black.htm]http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/218636/ ... -black.htmmedia is only going after joe walsh cuz he's white. or something.

That cretin has said this before. The amazing part is that he's stupid enough to say it twice. Then again, he's playing to his base (Meroni).

In response to your nasty video, Mr Walsh, how about you pay your child support before calling the President Of The United states out on anything. You, and the rest of your Tea Party ilk, are a pack of disrespectful cretins. Before asking "What about the military families?" ask what about your own children, and why you don't see fit to provide for their support. Many states take away drivers licenses, business licenses and other means to livelihood if they ignore their responsibility to their children, how about a law to suspend members of congress who can't perform their most basic obligations, to their families.

What a fucking asshole! I had not seen the “Quit Lying” video, I was overseas most of the summer so I probably missed a lot of stuff, but HO-Lee shit! That was the most disrespectful thing I’ve ever seen! :shock: What was that video produced for? Was there any other purpose than for Walsh to show his ignorant ass?

He put it out on his web page...it's the 4th video at the top.[/break1]house.gov/#dialog]http://walsh.house.gov/#dialogThe first one is where he advises the VP, "Vice President Biden, I'm Not A Terrorist".There's a six part town hall with him from last Spring1 [/break1]youtube.com/watch?v=RBLGUvK2TGA] [/break1]youtube.com/watch?v=mnvILcqAgKc] [/break1]youtube.com/watch?v=1BvBf813cPI&NR=1] [/break1]youtube.com/watch?v=RJoMUeKvyHE] [/break1]youtube.com/watch?v=SoXRFkM-FRI] [/break1]youtube.com/watch?v=1sLX_mDP8P0] guess he's a true believer. I can't wait to see how his child support case comes out. He claims he's being gouged in effect, doesn't owe all that money. We'll see how the court feels about it.

We'll see how the court feels about it.Greg Howard claims the same. Says his 'evil liberal' ex lies.i believe they did adjust what he owes. how could a creep like him every pay off the $100,000 he owes. he, like walsh, didn't pay anything for years.

Joe Walsh is whining that Boehner doesn't like him. :(( I get in a fight every week with my leadership,” Walsh said, according to comments reported by the local Kane County Chronicle. “And here’s what the fight is about. [House Speaker] John Boehner (R-Ohio) ... this is what he tells us every week: If we would just be quiet [and] don’t make waves right now. Privately, John Boehner ... doesn’t want someone like me around.”more via:[/break1]com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/189013-rep-walsh-boehner-doesnt-want-me-around]http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing- ... -me-aroundAnd a bit more about his personal troubles. First, there's the much-ballyhooed battle over the $117,000 his ex-wife says he owes in child support. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Walsh told a judge last week that the couple verbally agreed three years ago that he could stop payments. The Times reviewed documents filed as part of the case and found the following: He has $3,000 in his single IRA, has no savings or investment accounts, had his condo foreclosed on, had his license suspended after he failed to pay his auto insurance on time, and has tussled with the IRS. Still, Walsh doesn't seem concerned. "I told people, 'If you want a building full of millionaires who all have perfect credit scores, then Joe Walsh is not your guy.'" Plus, "I didn’t go to Washington to manage anybody’s money. What I want to do is limit what they take from you, so you can manage your money."[/break1]newser.com/story/131249/tea-party-rep-joe-walsh-fiscal-hawks-finances-stink.html]http://www.newser.com/story/131249/tea- ... stink.htmlIt's not like this is ancient history? And where did he get the money to loan his campaign? Or take his girlfriend to Mexico and Italy?

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Walsh told a judge last week that the couple verbally agreed three years ago that he could stop payments.This is what is called inadmissible parol evidence. Even if this isn't the blatant lie it obviously is, it shows extreme stupidity. If you want to modify child support, you go to the court. Child support involves the right of the child, and the parents may not freely contract it away between themselves. This asshole should go to prison.

The average person, if he were $100,000+ in arrears, WOULD be in prison. Joe ain't average, I guess

GOP Rep. Joe Walsh Melts Down, Screams At Constituents: ‘Dont Blame Banks!…I Am Tired Of Hearing That Crap!’





Walsh at one point screamed, “don’t blame the banks … this pisses me off!” 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.” The constituent, who had calmly asked his question before being cut-off midway through his sentence, obliged:





WALSH: Thats not the problem! The problem is you’ve got to be consistent. And I dont want government meddling in the marketplace. Yeah, they move from Goldman Sachs to the White House, I understand all of that. But you gotta’ be consistent. And it’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. [...]





WALSH: Quiet for a minute! Quiet for a minute!





CONSTITUENT: Joe, what did I say–





WALSH: Quiet for a minute or I’m going to ask you to leave. You need to listen, or I’m going to ask you to leave.


I guess being $117,400 in arrears over child support kinda puts ya under some stress.
