Congress’ television ambitious Joe Walsh (R-IL) appeared on the air waves again Tuesday morning, slamming President Obama and the Democrats for blaming the Tea Party Republicans for S&P’s downgrade.
Interviewed by Bill Hemmer on Fox’s “America Live,” the Illinois Congressman responded to a report of the DCCC targeting House GOP members over the credit agency’s decision to lower America’s rating. Walsh was quick to first attack not his House colleagues, but Obama.
“The President is like a teenage boy who had a big party and trashed his parents’ house while his parents were gone,” Walsh said. “Then he gets really upset when his parents come back home and make him clean up the mess. These troublesome House Republicans were sent to Washington to help the President clean up this mess.”
When Hemmer asked Walsh about his thoughts of the Democrats’ “Tea Party Downgrade” message, Walsh did not hesitate to continue harshly accessing his rival party.
“It’s offensive, it’s outrageous, it’s almost comical,” he said. “Their talking points are so obvious, it’s almost too political. You’ve got an administration that truly doesn’t know what it’s doing, and all you have left is to assign blame on others.”
Hemmer then asked the congressman about his feelings on Democrats’ statements that people like him prevented a better debt ceiling deal. And despite reports on him failing to pay thousands of dollars in child support bills, Walsh wasn’t afraid to boast about himself.
“Well my response bill is ‘thank God for folks like me.'”
