"Joe the Plumber fantasizes about havung a business", Joy Behar, The View
The View | 10/16/08 | Joy Behar

Posted on 10/16/2008 8:18:21 AM PDT by DallasBiff

I guess to Joy, Joe the Plumber, should fantasize about being a servant to Obama, to spread the wealth around, and not have the American dream of being your own boss.

Actually Bush warned Freddie Mac and Fannie May several times about the alarming number of subprime loans. Democrats fought tooth and nail against any reform. We’re all paying for the Democrats mistakes now. You “blame Bush” folks forget that Democrats have controlled congress for 2 years now.

What is amazing is that Obama gets away with calling what he wants to do giving a “tax break” to others so they can be where Joe was 5 years ago, when he means he’ll be giving checks to people who don’t pay taxes...that’s not a tax break, it’s a welfare program, but of course the MSN won’t call him on that, especially an old lefty like Bob Schieffer.

In the Obama economy we'll all be "community organizers" and we'll get rich sitting around registering each other to vote over and over again.

Only if we register as Democrats.

"Joy Behar fantasizes about having a brain."

Up until her name has been posted on FR as being on The View, I never even knew who she was. I've never watched that show or in fact, any programs on any of the major networks.

Here is how we, “the right” need to answer these idiots who want to “spread the weatlh around a little bit”.

The average income is 50K per household in the US.

Now take Blowhards salary as an example and then tell her that since the aveage is only 50k, the govt will take all but 50K from her to give to others less fortunate than her. I bet she throws a fit on the spot.

“Joe the Plumber fantasizes about having a $250K income, when he’s more in the $100K. In the Bush economy Joe, the registered Republican, is lucky to have any kind of job let alone a business making $250K+ yearly.”

The Bush economy was not doing bad considering what the country has had to deal with in the last 8 years, at least not bad until Democratic housing policies came to fruition.

Mom, why must you save your snarky comments only for election years? Please, share your (ahem) thoughts more often.

I can understand your being upset; it's not often that you witness your candidate destroying his own chances by telling the truth. Even someone as Leftie as you knows that the Average Joe voter hates socialism.

Apparently he currently is a partial owner of the business, and is considering buying the other owner(s) out.

Of course, now we’re going to find out every detail of Joe’s life, since character assassination is what the media knows best.

I want to know what gives Joy the idea that obama is going to let her keep her money? Maybe she wasn’t listening when obama told Joe that he was going to take his money and spread the wealth.

Too bad we don’t have Joy’s email addy. We could all email her and laugh at her. Laugh about taking her money away from her and spreading her wealth to others.

And furthermore, he’s just playing this class-envy game by attempting to convince people that he’s just shifting the burden of funding government to greedy rich people. You know, cut taxes on the “middle class” (which is whatever he wants it to be) and force those “who can afford it” to pay for it. Those people who receive tax cuts are going to be awfully surprised when the people who employ them now can no longer afford to to so in the very near future under a President 0bama.

We've got relatives who made it through the Great Depression. They're concerned about what's going on now, but not scared. They put things in perspective for me. You might try to get a little of that. Perspective, I mean :)

But.. but.. *feigned spluttering* that’s impossible!
The PMSNBCBSABC news zombies all told me that their position is the majority opinion.
/ bad joke.

Their cluelessness and disconnect from what they disdainfully refer to as “flyover country” is reflected in that number.
Especially when Nancy Pelosi pounded her desk and screamed that she was trying to save the planet while the people she was elected to ‘represent’ demanded relief from OPEC’s price tyranny.
That alone brought a huge rating drop for Congress.

Oh right, it’s the conservative media only making us believe that the Democrat-controlled Congress is the lowest-rated in the history of our republic!

Or maybe the public just has such low regard for government in general because of Bush! That’s gotta be it, because it can’t be that the Dems and their ideas, because they have the support of everyone in America except those bitter clingers in flyover country, but they’re so dumb that we can disregard what they think!

Did I get it right this time?

If the Joy household ever calls a plumber to fix something, that plumber should give her a bill in the amount of $250,000.

Plumbers are GODS - I can do any DIY project EXCEPT solder a pipe.

Sarah Palin gave a speech 2 hours ago to a huge crowd at an Air National Guard hanger at Bangor International Airport in Bangor, Maine.

Sarah mentioned Joe the Plumber to cheers from the crowd.

Before Sarah spoke, Lee Greenwood sang the National Anthem and God Bless the USA.

The local ABC affiliate carried the entire speech live.

The CBS affiliate did not....they had the Ellen DeGeneres show.

The NBC affiliate did not....they had an extension of The Today Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda.

PBS had some annoying kiddie show.

Sarah was great, as usual. She mention her sister, who owns a “service station” in Alaska. Sarah mentioned how she cut or eliminated numerous taxes in Alaska. Sarah also mentioned that once, just once, she wants to hear Barack Obama say that he wants to win the war in Iraq.

When Gov. Palin speaks, she is pure gold.

Thankfully, I live in a relatively conservative county in the midst of an increasingly liberal state. In 2004, GWB won over 50% of the vote in our county.

There are a lot of people in our neighborhood whom 0bama would characterize as bitter clingers - people just like Joe from Toledo. And very few of ‘em are supporting 0bama - go figure. My neighbors have been repeatedly insulted by B0 and his associates as ignorant, racist and greedy - and that’s not a good strategy when trying to convince such people to vote for you.

And how stupid can the Democrats and their strategists be? Western Pa. is full of bitter clingers, and their Congressman, Joe Murtha, claimed that his district is loaded with racists. Keep talkin’, Rep. Murtha.

By the way, that income isn’t his only, that’s a business total.
I.E., it’s split between operating costs, salaries and whatever benefits the business offers it’s employees.
SO, that in mind, you honestly believe that increasing the earning penalty is a good idea since it would force the business to let go of either benefits, employees, or both?
After all, the left is SO concerned about benefits paid out by businesses and SO concerned about people being able to find jobs.

My area of NY is increasingly more urban and less rural, and thus increasingly filled with those running away from NYC after 9/11.
So the influx of spoiled moron libs from the city has been playing havoc with local elections and straw polls.
Not to mention our district maps.
The gerrymanderers in Albany don’t know what to make of it yet.
AND the NYC types have no idea what to make of the vicious man eating deer that wander through the lawns here.
(They’ve never heard of venison.)
Neighbor up the street has a huge Obambi Bye-then sign.
With the influx of city libs, signs of those opposing their views have been increasingly stolen or mutilated.
How tolerant of them.
