Rep. Joe Walsh: Media Protects Obama Because He is Black

| by Michael Allen

Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) made headlines recently with his refusal to pay child support; he reportedly owes over $100,000. He also tried to force his ex-wife to pay his legal bills and skipped a child support hearing in Illinois to vote "present" on a bill in the House.

Rep. Walsh is back in the news this week, accusing the media of protecting President Obama because he is black (video below).

In an interview with Rep. Walsh yesterday, the Media Research Center’s Brent Bozell stated that the president is “playing class warfare and race warfare games.” Bozell asked Rep. Walsh why the media are “aiding and abetting” Obama.

Rep. Walsh answered: "He was liberal, he was different, he was new, he was black. Oh my God, it was the potpourri of everything. They are so vested in our first black president not being a failure that it’s going to be amazing to watch the lengths they go to protect him."
