A video taken by Round Lake Beach District116.orgblogger Gene Carey of Round Lake Beach last weekend in Gurnee’s Uno Chicago Bar & Grill made not only ABC News in Chicago, but also MSNBC and Fox News.
The clip used featured a short part of one of Congressman Joe Walsh’s small group meetings in coffee shops, bars and other local gathering places. In Crystal Lake he has held them at Country Donuts and Walker’s Pancake House.
These typically last about an hour and can get heated.
In the instance featured, Walsh was talking to postal worker Melissa Rakestraw, who admitted not voting for Walsh in 2010.
Having attended the two Crystal Lake events, I can tell you that Walsh relishes defending his conservative positions.
And I never saw him lose his cool, as one headline put it.
The postal worker wanted to know Walsh’s position about saving jobs in the Postal System.
Walsh did not give her the answer she was seeking.
