Skip to comments.Demonizing Joe The Plumber: AP Digs through Birth and Court Documents to Destroy Him!
Posted on 10/17/2008 5:25:24 AM PDT by Jabrown
Regardless of where you live or what your occupation is the story of Joe the plumber should be a wake up call for the middle class of this nation; not because of the socialist undertones of Senator Obama's 'Spread The Wealth' policies, but rather because of the reaction of his campaign, his surrogates and the fringe-left media to anyone that questions "The One"...
...But my favorite is from the SF Chronicle, a know left-wing publication, yet a nationally printed publication:

LOL!! He SHOULD!!!!
Isn’t it amazing that they have managed to dig up Joe the Plumber’s birth certificate in two days, but have yet to find Barack Obama’s birth certificate after 20 months?
These attacks, whether or not they work, are just muddying the water. Joe, his history, his income, how much he will pay in taxes... none of that matters.
What matters is Joe’s question and Obama’s answers. With all the hubbub about Joe’s life, no one in the media is pursuing the question anymore.
The liberal attack machine is something to behold. It is reflexive. They can’t defend their positions or subject them to any scrutiny, so they attack and demonize the one who raises the issue. Sadly, it keeps working.
His employer has the license.
They would tax any judgment he was awarded to the hilt.
Don't be fooled by the BS. Joe doen't have a license because he doesn't NEED a license to work under someone WITH a license. The boss DOES have a state license.
The whole point of saying the boss doesn't have a county license was to make him look shady. He doesn't NEED a county license because he has a state license which allows him to work anywhere in the state.
Has anybody in the MSM bothered to verify that Barack Obama is admitted to the bar in Illinois? It should be simple enough to determine. He has practiced law in Illinois, after all. But did he ever sit for the Bar Exam?
I was particularly annoyed at Joe Biden’s “no plumber I know makes $250,000 per year” or whatever it was. First off, who really thinks Joe Biden knows anyone who works as a plumber. Of course, the media won’t ask him for the names of all these plumbers he knows. Plus I can’t shake the feeling that the liberals are insulted that a plumber could make that kind of money— that is the kind of money a lawyer should make, who does that plumber think he is? Elitist and snob are just two words that come to mind.
How could you be o impertinent as to ask?
You must be a racist.
The SS will probably knock on your door before lunch time.
I hope Joe sues for invasion of privacy and gets a million bucks....because I know he would do right by the money.
“Plus I cant shake the feeling that the liberals are insulted that a plumber could make that kind of money that is the kind of money a lawyer should make, who does that plumber think he is?”
Now if you replace “plumber” with “red neck”, you will have described the elitist view.
It is also the elitist view that we rednecks are not smart enough to figure out what they intend for us.
This truly could be a turning point in the future of our nation.
The key to understanding this is to remember where Obama comes from. He is a minion of Saul Alinsky. These tactics are straight out of the Alinsky game plan. Read his book. It's right in there. Use the rules of the system against it. And always, above all, attack, belittle, smear, and marginalize your opponents using whatever means are available and necessary to achive your ends.
A Plumber is the person you call when your drains are clogged with lawyers and other undesirable compounds.
Joe the plumber chooses to use his middle name while a Presidential candidate chooses to hide his. If you think freedom of speech will survive Barrack Hussien Obama in the White House, ask the Sheriff of Lee County Florida or others who have been visited by federal agents after having said something the Obamaists dont like.
I was thinking that for about the same money, I’d say Joe the Plumber does a lot more for society than Michelle Obama does.
“I was particularly annoyed at Joe Biden’s “no plumber I know makes $250,000 per year”
I’ve heard that Joe doesn’t make $250K now but is in a position where he may be making that much in the future. One point that Joe made in an interview was that Obama has decided that $250K is the threshold now but who knows how much that may come down in the future, $150K?...$100K? When BO can change the rules at will, how far can and must he go to pay for his entitlements?
I have seen a lot of elections.
I have seen a lot of bad guys exposed during the election process.
But this is the first time I have ever seen stuff like:
Thousands of phone calls to radio stations in an attempt to paralyze their communications system because of a guest appearance not meeting their approval The sheriff in MO threaten ting arrest for statements about the candidate.
The legal threats and FCC license threats against radio and TV stations, as in OH and PA.
Threats against the sheriff for mentioning a middle name.
Secret Service calls on a citizen instigated by a turned off campaign worker.
Character assassination because of a legit question of a candidate.
And I will bet you that there are many more where the target is afraid to advertise it because he is afraid.
I wonder, too, if perhaps $250K doesn’t account for expenses. It might be a figure based on gross rather than net.
