Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Naturally) Blasts Double Amputee’s Military Service, Says She’s Not A ‘True Hero’Posted: July 5, 2012
“Though he never joined the military himself, Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) disparaged his Democratic opponent’s military service at a town hall on Sunday, saying that she’s not a ‘true hero.’ Walsh is running against Tammy Duckworth, a double amputee who lost both her legs in Iraq when insurgents hit her helicopter with an RPG in 2004.”
“Now I’m running against a woman who, my God, that’s all she talks about. Our true heroes, it’s the last thing in the world they talk about.”
Brilliant strategy, GOP. Bash a double amputee veteran for not being a true hero. Max Cleland all over again. You stay classy.
