Daily Herald: Walsh’s act part of the problem in D.C.

#ilop The Herald opines, Walsh’s act part of the problem in D.C. -
We are all for increased face-to-face contact between our local congressmen and the public. We’re a fan of the so-called town hall meetings where average taxpaying citizens can go ask their representatives just what the heck is going on in Washington and how they plan to help fix it.

But we’re not a fan of political grandstanding. And we’re certainly no fan of showing disrespect to the office of the president, whether that president is a Republican or a Democrat.
I dunno. Obama slams the Supreme Court at a State of the Union address. Obama invites Rep Ryan to the White House and then slams Ryan. Is it a surprize someone with self respect declines. The problem of civility starts at the top. I'd say leave Walsh out of it.
