AZ-Sen. 2010: 'Joe The Plumber' To Appear At Tax Rally (as Palin rallies McCain's RINO hordes)
KPHO-TV 5 CBS Phoenix, Ariz. ^ | 2010-03-24

Posted on 03/24/2010 4:05:43 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

PHOENIX -- The day that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is set to campaign with Sen. John McCain in Tucson, another figure from the 2008 presidential election will make an appearance on the lawn of Arizona's capitol building.

Samuel Wurzelbacher, more commonly known as "Joe the Plumber," is scheduled to make an appearance at Friday's "Ax the Tax" rally against Proposition 100, which institutes a temporary sales tax increase across Arizona to fill the budget shortfall.

Wurzelbacher rose to fame after he questioned then-presidential-candidate Barack Obama about tax increases at a campaign rally. Both Obama and McCain referred to Wurzelbacher as "Joe the Plumber" during the presidential debates, thus giving him the nickname.

As Wurzelbacher talks taxes at the rally, Palin and McCain will be holding a picnic in Tucson on Friday before heading to Mesa for a rally Saturday.

McCain and Palin have become a real item travelling around AZ. The next Bonnie and Clyde?

When will Palin pay off her loyalty debt to McShame? He never really wanted her anyway. She wasnt even on his list. You have just got to know she really prefers Hayward in her heart!

More like Emma Peel and John Steed, The Avengers.

My brother used to say Diana Rigg was on there to perform the action moves Steed couldn’t, (he was mostly sipping champagne).

All you people that hate Palin for going to help McCain..send J.D some money and we will see what happens in 2011..Sarah may not even run then you can fuss about that..the way to get rid of the rinos is primary them out..I think some people here will vote for Obama because Sarah has to help McCain... Nobody would know who she is today unless they watched the Larry Kudlow show..give her a break..

You have actually, effectively, joined Romney’s campaign to stop Governor Palin haven’t you.

At first I thought it was about McCain, but it is actually about stopping Palin herself.

I don’t blame her for supporting McCain. I’m just glad I don’t have to, he hasn’t done anything for any of us.

The best thing that could happen would be for him to go into his long overdue retirement. We could pick someone at random out of the phone book to replace him. They couldn’t possibly be as faithless as he has been.

Gov Plain has done this all by herself.

As far as Romney - he seems to be sucking up to McCain as well. Ditto Fred (sad), Huckelbie, Newt (gag), Kyl and other stinking RINOs.

We got ObamaCare thanks to MCCain-Feingold. If Sarah wants to support a person who calls American conservatives - “racists” then she and Romney will be known by the company they keep - ie rats like McCain and Graham-nesty.

Won't work with me. I disagree with her, but I understand why she's doing it.

My short list for 2012 is only going to include people who were in the fight during 2009 and 2010. Guys who show up come primary season wanting my support aren't going to get it. In the fights against the O's takeover of America, there is a very short list of people who have been out front on these issues, a couple of politicians, a couple of ex-politicians, a small handful of talking heads. The guys who are polishing their speeches waiting for primary season don't interest me. You're either in the fight now while it matters or don't call me looking for my vote later.

A comment on C4P:

section9:

Palin has privately told Hayworth's people that she won't be attacking him. McCain's people get this and understand it, and so do Hayworth's people, so you won't see J.D. attacking Palin at all.

Who says I hate Palin? I don’t hate Palin. You should question your insight skills when you come up with things like that. Maybe your other ideas are offbase.

I didn’t call you a romneybot, I said that you have effectively merged into his campaign to stop Palin.

That addition to the title that you do and the growing emphasis of your threads away from the Arizona race between McCain and Hayworth into a campaign against Governor Palin puts you as the biggest force on freerepublic to clear the path for Mitt Romney.

There are three front runners for 2012, the only two giants in it are Palin and Mitt Romney, you are at war to stop Palin, that leaves the vast political machine of Romney, the vast wealth and fund raising of Romney, the vast name recognition of Mitt Romney, and the vast establishement support from the GOP and the democrats for Mitt Romney, mostly unopposed.

The only people who hate Palin are the ones who didn’t like her before. The rest of us are trying to hang on by our fingernails as we watch someone we love help someone we loath get re-elected. Of course JD won’t attack her, he never would have attacked her whether or not her people talked to his or not.

Governor Palin has a long list of people she has formally supported, including Jim DeMint, Michele Bachman, Rand Paul, Pat Toomey, Doug Hoffman, and John Thune.

Palin hasn’t done anything to herself, you are the one that is on an anti-Palin crusade for your own reasons, listing her recent Presidential election partner support, for his reelection as the reason, shows real shallowness and an eagerness to, frankly, to do what, I don’t know.

You go on with such a sustained, constant, passion about that endorsement that I really don’t know what you are after, but I do know what the result will be if you succeed in knocking off Palin, the entire conservative movement will suffer massive, irreplaceable, loss, and Mitt Romney (a man that you often praise) will have a clear road to the 2012 nomination.

Wonder what the explanation will be for SarahPAC contributing to Lindsey Graham?

McCain support is understandable.....supporting Grahamnesty is treachery.....

Getting McCain reelected is deadly. Never forget that. Goody feelings are not worth the price of McCain backstabbing. It does no good to win elections when we have people like McCain walking across the aisle and guaranteeing losses like we have suffered on 06 and 08.

Time to get tough

Her appearances at two McCain rallies, one dinner, and a photo op are facts. Pointing out facts is not "deranged" except to groupies and bots who don't want to face reality.

My understanding is that months after the 2008 elections that Palin paid back donation money to Graham that had helped her reach her minimum (3 or 5) donation limit of certain minimums to have her new PAC formally recognized by the FCC.

Graham does not come up for election again until many years from now, after the 2010 elections and a couple of years after the 2012 Presidential elections, in fact in the distant future called 2014, she was not helping him to win any campaign, if that is what you were thinking of.

Sarah is going to appear in Searchlight Nevada on Saturday the 27th of March. Searchlight is the home of Harry Reid, and it will be interesting to see how it works out. Why don't you bring lots of Water, a folding Chair and of course a hat and suntan cream, and see Sarah up close and personal.

I'm not stressing over it, I just don't like it a bit. I find it VERY hard to listen to her talk on TV about supporting the conservatives in the primary and defeating the RINOs (pretty close to her exact words) when she is supporting and raising money for McCain against JD.

Like I said, I'm hanging on by my fingernails and just trying to get past this weekend.

I think that he was referring to you trying to bring down the only real, national, conservative politician, and challenger to the Mitt Romney juggernaut because of an endorsement in an Arizona race.

Over time your obsession has emerged as an anti-Palin obsession.

McCain is a LOSER, an epic FAIL, and is poison to the Conservative cause.
For Sarah to support him now, when she could have gained enormous political capital with conservatives by ostracizing him is outright feckless.

The rest of your post is inchoate nonsense, sir.

If you think tht Palin has any chance at all of stopping Mitt then you are outright deluded.
It is this type of whistling past the graveyard that bought us the epic defeats of 08. - Have you learned nothing?

I don’t like Mitt and Sarah has as much chance of winning in 2012 as my cat does.
The dems hope beyond belief that she is nominated...

For 17 months the polls have shown Governor Palin and Mitt Romney fighting back and forth for the top slot, with Huckabee moving around in that battle, so you are wrong.

On the Democrat’s choice? well, we have never seen a politician so under attack as the left and media have kept Governor Palin, ever, we have never seen the left so determined to get someone out of the running as they are with Palin, I would have to say that the left looks forward to meeting Mitt Romney in 2012.

Gov Plain has done this all by herself.

I do not know why you are so twisted about Sarah Palin's support of Sen. McCain. It is called loyalty and as such, Sarah Palin is making sure that the favor is returned, paid back and some.
FYI, Sarah Palin is basking in the lime light, BECAUSE of Sen. McCain's national exposure of her as the VP contender on his ticket.

Paying up the bills and moving on and a whole lot more, is why Ms.Palin is winning supporters. You got one right here!

Do not be surprised in the outcome of the 2012 elections (unless we really going to get extinct courtesy of the Mayan Calenders and Nostradamus Predictions.)

P.S. Nice try...

I loathe Newt (see NY-23). Newt is as bad as McCain. Crist is better than those two. Crist is toast and no Bushes thank you. GW could have been a great one.

I like Sarah but she lost me with despicable McCain.

Likes:
Bachmann (awesome)
Coburn
Ryan
Ken Cuccinelli (VA) - VA is turning out lots of good ones.
Chris Christie (maybe not socially conserv enough)
Steve King from IN?
Marco Rubio (if he is tough on immigration)

Probably a bunch more I am forgetting. I do not hate Ron paul like some others do but not a huge fan either.

Issa from CA also has the fire in his belly. Tom McClintock from CA. Jim DeMint form SC.

Just get the horrible RINOs out like McCain, Graham-nesty. We have a lot of good people including Boehner.

RINOs like McCain and Graham undermine us at every turn along with the lib newsmedia and FOx is only marginally better now.

I’m curious...I can’t stand McCain and I’m disappointed that Gov. Palin is supporting him. However, I’m not writing her off over this, because I still see her as a small-government, common sense conservative.

My question is, why is it that I always see you disparaging Republicans, but never Democrats?

Am I just missing the posts where you criticize Democrats?
