Obama Ridicules Joe The Plumber

Can Senator McCain make one of his trademark comebacks? Yes, if the Democratic spin and smoke and mirrors trickery are seen for what they really are by the American people. Maybe this is beginning to happen…

Obama is seen here ridiculing the now famous Joe the Plumber. What is more, the Democratic crowd joined in the mockery. They are out of touch with America.

    McCain’s dilemma shows why Presidential campaigns are such fascinating insights into the behavior of people and the genius of the common man/woman. If it was all about the length of your record, John would be ahead by a landslide — Notwithstanding that Obama’s pick of a VP and his cadre of economic advisers negate much of that record.

    If it was all about likeability, Obama would not be telling supporters “don’t get too cocky”. He’s reminding voters of NH for a reason — both as an indication that he’s still fighting for their vote and takes nothing for granted as well as a rallying call to his base to sustain their efforts. Yet, popular perception obviously affects the voting booth and is, I believe, why McCain goes on Letterman — to try stave off attacks that he is an irascible and erratic septugenerian.

    Fact is, there are waves. And despite all of the RNC’s efforts to tar and feather Senator Barack, they are building castles in the sand, castles built by Rove operatives whose motive is as yet unclear and who have infiltrated McCain’s campaign. Within this tidal shift towards Obama, people are looking more than ever at how a future President behaves in the heat of the campaign trail as a proxy of how she/he would behave with respect to tough domestic/foreign issues and leaders. Obama now looks presidential, while McCain looks a tad desperate.

    McCain seems to have run into the situation that he is darned if he does and is equally so if he does not. This situation often occurs in wave theory, where fundamental events are overwhelmed by the technical pressure towards a certain point. The Senior Senator from Arizona, however, is not helping himself with a schizophrenic two-headed attack on both economics and on character. It forces him to fight a two-front war. Despite his attempt to play into popular angst of socialism by telling Joe-the-Plumber that Obama will take and share his money with others, McCain appears to have ceded economics to Obama.

    And even Mr. Rove will tell you that is no winning strategy.

    When the G8 has already stated that they will bail the US out THIS LAST time because of the unrealistic “spend yourself out of your own home” mindset of American capitalism that is causing world wide problems only an idiot like Obama would pull crap like this. Neither Obama nor Mc Cain (or the US) will solve any of these economic problems. The rest of the worl has had their fill and already stated that the conditions to bail us out are that THEY will now decide what the rules will be for the “new capitalism” that will NOT be based on the American way of handling money. Anyone who votes for Obama because of the financial problems is a FOOL because HE and the Democrats will not be doing anything. The ONLY person who has had the real insight into this was Sarah Palin. One of the conditions for the rest of the world to bail the US out is that we develop our refineries to the fullest. Simply put that means “DRILL BABY DRILL” and Palin is the only one who understood what those petro dollars and energy resources mean for this country. As of now, it is either this way, THEIR WAY, or we go belly up. This whole economic plan/election that Obama and the Democrats propose is NOT addressing the real issues. Mc Cain should be voted in because of his POW/SERVICE/SENATE record AND because he alone had the BRAINS to understand what PALIN brought to this election and this country. If you don’t believe me, go on the INTERNET to the G8 emergency economic hearings of this weekend and listen or read them say that the “OLD CAPITALISM” OF THE AMERICAN WAY will no longer be tolerated as a condition for this bailout.

    Three things that will happen if Obama takes power:

    1) USA will become a welfare state and all the work of Pres Clinton for Welfare REFORM will be reversed,

    2) Corporate (small and large) will have LARGE lay offs and decrease hiring to balance the LARGE tax increases.

    3) Corporate MED-LARGE will move off shore for better tax breaks to remain in business.

    With the most liberal Senator in years as president with a very liberal sentate and house – obama will get what he wants when he wants it.

    Please do not vote for obama.

    BARBARA – I am not sure what Election you have been following but SARAH PALIN is your answer to this WorlWide financial melt down? are you serious? you are part of the 0.10% of American’s who share that position, even Sarah Palin will not agree with you on that one.

    Thank God for Joe the plumber! He has the b—s to ask a question that no MSM -type has dared ask their “superstar!” HE SPEAKS FOR ME!!!

  6. Howard Says:

    Obama is ahead in the polls, but are the polls
    a realistic reflection of what will actually happen
    in the voting booth? Obama is outspending McCain
    3 to one … He has 90% of the media in his pocket
    … he has 98% of the black vote … he has voter fraud
    on his side, with groups like Acorn … and yet the
    election is still close. So far, all the conclusions by all the
    pundits are totally based upon POLLS. Not a single actual vote
    has been cast yet. Obama supporters gush at how
    well their man has done in the debates, which proves
    once again that Obama is a good debater and a good
    speaker. It doesn’t say anything about his character,
    judgement, or what kind of a leader he would be.
    I still would rather trust a man who would not sell out
    his fellow prisoners, even during 5 years of torture,
    than to trust a man who betrayed a 20 year friendship,
    for personal ambition. And … regarding this election,
    until people actually vote … it ain’t over till it’s over!

    I think that McCain using Joe the Plumber is going to get old fast as the truth hurts more than helps – Joe the Plumber does not have a l license for his job, does get the benefit of not paying taxes because he earns less than $250,000 and he claims that he doesn’t believe in Social Security. He is not helping McCain – so he should probably start a new strategy – soon! And McCain’s robocalls are about as unethical as one can get. The “I’m going to run a civil campaign” candidate just went overboard!

    I also hear that Joe the Plumber wasn’t a registered voter. Can someone confirm or deny that?

  9. Hannah Stevens Says:

    It appears that Joe the plumber is not what he appears to be. Firstly he has no plumber’s license, he is in trouble with the law and the IRS for back taxes and he only makes 40 some thousand a year and would benefit from Obama’s tax plan. In any event, very few small business owners would have to pay a higher tax as it is not the gross income of the business that is in question, but the amount of income the business owner is receiving and if the business is making 250 K that would not amount to very much.
