Earlier tonight, I wrote about Dave Westlake’s apparent support of Congrressman Joe Wilson’s classless heckling of President Obama during the president’s address to Congress, and at the time, I noted Westlake had removed his original Tweet supporting Rep. Wilson. However, just a few minutes ago, Dave Westlake was kind enough to confirm that he supports heckling a sitting president during a presidential address to Congress. In a Tweet to Dave Westlake, user jimspice asked,
@dbwestlake If you have “No Fear of Standing Up for What’s Right” why did you yank your tweet supporting #JoeWilson.

In response, Westlake noted:
@jimspice I didn’t–I just changed it. In fact, I sent 2 other ones out!

I’d just like to thank Dave Westlake for confirming that his idea of “leadership” includes heckling the president during an address to Congress, and I’ll just say that if heckling and acting like a buffoon is Dave Westlake’s idea of “real leadership” in Washington, then Wisconsin would certainly be better off reelecting Senator Russ Feingold for another term in the U.S. Senate.
