After the Republican Party’s State Convention this summer I wrote an article entitled,
It was about how Joe Walsh energized the crowd by trashing the way Democrat House Speaker Mike Madigan has allowed State government to hit the skids while he has been in control. You can read the article here.
Among other things, Walsh said,
“No one person should run a state.
“He is a king.
“He is a dictator.
“He is corrupt.
“He symbolizes everything that is wrong in Illinois.
“Shame on us for not having the courage and the fortitude to say that.”
Others auditioned, too, including Party Chairman Pat Brady, who also had harsh words about Madigan.
You can hear Walsh’s entire speech on Warner Tood Houston’s Prairie State Report video below:
Now Capitol Fax Blog has posted a new Facebook account from Joe Walsh, which you see, along with Walsh’s first post below:
“Speaking to people all over Illinois. They are engaged, excited and ready to take this state back from the Madigan Empire. #Freedom #Liberty”
Can you imagine Walsh taking on Mike Madigan on concentration of power, especially if Lisa Madigan is running for Governor?
