Listening to this admittedly rough video of a recent Town Hall with Rep. Joe Walsh reminded me of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in her prime – when she took the hard line against progressives in the UK who were looking at future policy decisions that, indeed, brought that country to its knees. Walsh is running for Congress in the new 8th District of Illinois, designed by Chicago Democrats especially to elect Obama-bureaucratette Tammy Duckworth – who has never been elected anywhere or to anything. The 8th district, which skitters around the northwestern suburbs of Chicago from Elk Grove Village to Elgin and from Carpentersville to Elmhurst, is a tough sell for the redisticted Rep. Walsh – who did defeat Democrat Congressman Melissa Bean in 2010, and who has a close to Tea Party-perfect voting record in Congress. For those on the North Shore (now mostly “represented” by uber-progressive Jan Schakowsky) (whose husband is a convicted felon), support for Joe Walsh’s campaign might be a better investment in the new conservative Congress than resorting to donating to Bob Dold, given the old 10th District representative’s unbelievably disappointing support for pro-union and pro-Planned Parenthood legislation just in the last few weeks.
