| by Michael Allen

During a town hall meeting in Elmhurst, Illinois this past weekend, Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) told voters that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney should start bragging about his personal wealth of $250 million.

Rep. Walsh said: "It’s a good thing in this country, Tammy Duckworth, to make money. That is a good thing. I wish Mitt Romney would be proud of that. I wish Romney walked around every day in this campaign and said, “you know what? I’m real successful.'"

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

"'Hey you know what America? I’m a rich guy! In fact, you might call me wealthy. That’s me, Mitt Romney. You know what? I worked my butt off to get this way. And you know what? I want you to be rich like me.' Don’t shy away from that! Rejoice in that!"
