Tea Party hero, Joe Walsh made it official, he ran against, (a real Hero) Tammy Duckworth in Illinois 8th District and lost

The hubris of the Tea Party and it’s hero Joe Walsh led to his defeat when he ran against a real hero Tammy Duckworth in Illinois's 8th District. December 12, 2012, and it cost him the election.

Former Republican Speaker John Boehner had promised Joe Walsh "$3.5 million in general election fundraising help", according to the Daily Herald.

Joe Walsh running and screaming in illinois.

Per: My dear friend, "Typical Republican Joe Walsh, saying Tammy Duckworth, who lost both of her limbs serving our country, is not a true hero, because she dares to talk about her service to her country, Joe Walsh said.

Watch the video and hear what Joe Walsh had to say about a real American hero.

Maybe what really galls the a** holes since he has NEVER served in the military in any capacity himself is that Tammy is a woman, and even without legs, she is kicking his ace in spades!"

Next, Mighty Joe, the Tea Party hero will be screaming, that Tammy is not a real woman without sexy legs to strut her stuff. Shame on Joe Walsh for not being a REAL man!

Screaming Joe, should have stuck with the issues.

Rep. Joe Walsh criticizes Tammy Duckworth's military service

Dead beat dad dares to criticizes a war hero

Remember Max Cleland?

Remember Max Cleland? A decorated war hero, He, like Tammy lost limbs in the military service of this country and his opponent, Saxby Chambliss (shameless) accused Max of jumping on a hand grenade, because he knew he was going to run for the Senate and the sympathy would help him win.

Saxby Chambliss ran negative ads against Max Cleland, very much like Joe Walsh was doing to Tammy Duckworth.

What kind person would vote for a person who denigrates the character of our Nationally Decorated war heroes?

I would not be surprised if the screaming demon does not accuse Tammy of purposely crashing her helicopter to gain sympathy for her injuries in order to help her win a race she did not know she would be in.

Mighty Joe did not know, Tammy's never backed down from a fight in her life and she certainly would not back down from this one.

And when Joe Walsh began his attack he did not know how many people would have Tammy's back.

Tammy Duckworth responds to Congressman Joe Walsh

What is Hypocrisy?

Hypocrisy: Anti-Obama, Tax-Bashing Tea-Party Champion — Congressman

Chris Matthews takes down Rep. Joe Walsh - July 19, 2012

When asked about the balanced budget bill, Walsh said this bill calls for a 111 billion in cuts, when asked where the cuts will be made Joe Walsh replies in the bill.

Are they going to rip it up???

Martin Bashir calls out Rep. Joe Walsh on his disrespect to President Obama!

We have a president who is banrupting the country, Joe Walsh said.

Joe Walsh said we have a president right now who is bankrupting this country and he is destroying job creation.

I think it is purely political for him to call a joint session of Congress to announce some 'JOBS' plan. Joe went on to say.

I am going to go back home and speak to the people who really know how to create jobs.

When Mighty Joe was asked about his jobs plan, Walsh like Romney, did not have one!

What is Next for Joe Walsh?

What is Joe Walsh's plan?

Maybe to run again for another seat?

But who is the hero can he defeat?

Maybe he can just sit and stir his tea.
