UPDATE: (08/09/12) Joe Walsh responds here.
In a video from a campaign event in Illinois this past weekend, Congressman Joe Walsh (R-IL) referred to President Barack Obama as "son" and said that he was never ready to do his job. Unfortunately, this kind of crass and incendiary language is nothing new for Representative Walsh who has a history of making racially inflammatory comments and encouraging fringe beliefs among his supporters.
Walsh: There's something different on the ground and I think it's going to overtake us all again. I think it's going to overtake the political class. I think it's going to respectfully pick this president up and pat him on the head and say, son, son, son, Mr. President, you were never ready to be president, now go home and work for somebody and find out how the real world works.

What do you think? Has Joe Walsh gone too far? Let us know in the comments.
