Walsh Gets Angry at Meet and Greet

November 9, 2011
"Quiet for a minute," said Walsh. "Quiet for a minute. QUIET FOR A MINUTE, or I'm gonna ask you to leave. It's so easy to sit here and say 'I want government to solve all these problems.' I love ya, and I love ya, and I love ya, but you know what? If the postal service can't compete in the marketplace, I am tired of propping it up." Walsh apologized in a statement, saying that "As my constituents know, I am a very passionate person. I am passionate about our freedom, fighting for taxpayers, and standing up against big government. Constituents with opposing views have every right to argue with me, and I have every right to argue passionately for my conservative values. That's what freedom is all about." But Walsh's confrontational style is nothing new. A tea party favorite who's frequently on cable news, Walsh is also embroiled in an ongoing child support case with his ex-wife. He also faces a GOP primary with fellow freshman Rep. Randy Hultgren in the redrawn 14th District, and juts last week he got somewhat testy with Hultgren after his campaign had been polling in the district on Walsh's legal and financial woes. Walsh told the Arlington Heights Daily Herald then that, If he raises his voice and calls into question who I am as a father, I'll punch him in the face, figuratively speaking."
