Posted on 10/16/2008 7:50:24 AM PDT by DrHannibalLecter

Wish I had the knowledge of how to edit a photo.

I would take Sarah Palin’s Riverter Rosie’s picture and insert a plumber’s plunger in her uplifted hand and write the caption underneath:

FLUSH OUT WASHINGTON NOW!

He wasn’t available for interviews yesterday, BECAUSE HE HAD TO WORK

Would that we had MORE like Mr. Wurzelbacher that spoke so plainly, to the point and HONEST! Like Sarah, a stand up person, knowing what he believes, comfortable with himself and best of all WHAT HE DOES.

I really liked his statement about “what if (Barak) decides that the line ought to be drawn at $150,000.00 instead of $250,000.00, that’s a slippery slope”, and using the label SOCIALIST, good on you Joe, you betcha!! Excellent.

Boy, she certainly was amused by the whole interview, wasn’t she?

He is every man, and I think that whole exchange between Senator Government and Joe the Plumber just might be the camel that breaks Obama’s straw back.

Just words. Just speeches. Heh.

I have met people like this. They insult the mecanic, the plumber, the cop, the electrician, not on a one-on-one level but as a collective. Yet who do they call when the toilet overflows, the lights don’t work. Or - in the case of 9/11 - firefighters who risk their lives to save people that have comtempt for them. Or soldiers, Marines, sailors, and airmen who man the wall and protect those who snear at them. We need to get the word out!

I’d prefer he took about a 3 week vacation and toured with Sarah and John.

I am so proud of my countrymen. The people like Joe who work their butts off day in/day out.

I made an interesting observation - on the way in to work in the morning (6:15AM) every bumper-sticker I see is for McCain/Palin. If I go out for lunch, I see about an even mix of support. It seems Obama supporters aren't early risers or have early jobs. I'm not out at 1 or 2 AM but I bet the ratios are in Barak's advantage then.

“We are all plumbers now”

My brother and I are in the same position as Joe. We recently purchased a business and our taxes will go up dramatically under O. That is less “wealth” that we will be able to share with our employees by way of wages and benefits. We are truly all plumbers now.

HEHEH, the real beauty of it is that all the drive bys will hafta keep interviewing him to be 'news'...at least for a little while...

its amusing that they are so friggin arrogant that they thought it would be a slam dunk to discredit an ordinary citizen by putting him on camera and lobbing softballs his way...

those SAME softballs that McCain keeps foul tipping into the dirt, ole "joe" simply ripped into the upper deck, then because it was 'just a fluke', DUmmies like dippy diane invite him to a bigger ballpark for another exhibition and repeat the whole process...

there will be more free airtime for conservatism from the msm given over this than we coulda possibly dreamed of from a couple months ago...

Keep the prayers going up to Gods ears folks, He IS Listening...

Went to a lib site earlier regarding this story and the responses were amusing.

I found this gem at DU.

"Turns out that Joe Wurzelbacher from the Toledo event is a close relative of Robert Wurzelbacher of Milford, Ohio. Who’s Robert Wurzelbacher? Only Charles Keating’s son-in-law and the former senior vice president of American Continental, the parent company of the infamous Lincoln Savings and Loan. The now retired elder Wurzelbacher is also a major contributor to Republican causes giving well over $10,000 in the last few years."

I did some research into starting up my own business and decided to postpone my decision until after the election.

If Zerobama’s elected, I won’t start the business.
If McCain’s elected, I will.

Start-up cost will be well over $120K and should generate a comfortable income level. This is capital that won’t be invested and revenue that won’t be generated if Zerobama wins.

Notice how they lie about the percentage of tax increase. The condescending Sawyer said that going from 36% to 39% percent is only a 3% increase in his income taxes. Actually it is over an 8% increase in the amount of taxes they will take from him.

The zer0 says the same thing about capital gains tax increases he wants. He says that an increase from 15% to 20% is only a 5% increase, actually it’s a 33.3% increase in taxes taken.

They are liars or stupid or both.

That’s a thought that I’m not sure about yet. Part of me says YEAH!, and part likes that he is just a regular Joe, who has to work for a living, but really gets it.

Regardless of what he decides, I will pray for him, and his family, because clearly, they’re gonna need it.

If anyone finds an email address, or snailmail, I’d like to let him know he does have many FRiends out here, who are grateful, and support him.

“...words like “socialist”, “Marxist”, “communist”, and “fascist” give them the jitters, like showing a cross to a vampire....”

Good point, MrB...That’s because they’ve worked soooooo hard for so many decades now to convince ordinary people (who they KNEW weren’t really paying attention) that they’re reeeeeaaaalllly just good, loyal opposition Democrats, and are “lookin’ out fer the little guy, you know, The Soccer Moms, and the NASCAR Dads, and Bob the Deer Hunter, and Joe Sixpack.”

Like we’re all just some stupid, illiterate, knuckle-dragging, hick/redneck demographic to be bullsh*tted, used, and abused...

Hey Dems...got news for you...some of the FINEST HUMAN BEINGS THIS COUNTRY EVER PRODUCED were “rednecks” and “hicks” and “rubes” from “flyover country”, and their lifeblood STAINED A HUNDRED DIFFERENT BATTLEFIELDS IN SH*THOLES ALL OVER THE WORLD TO PROTECT YOUR WORTHLESS LIBERAL ASSES.

And they were good decent God-fearing people who put their heads down, pressed their shoulders to the wheel, and pushed forward, always, because they BELIEVED in America, and in the DREAM, and in the IDEAL of a place where they could BE as much or as little as they wanted to be. And a large percentage of those extraordinary men NEVER came home - They gave up ALL THEIR TOMORROWS so there WOULD be a TODAY for other people - they never got to find their little place in the sunlight here; I pray that God rewarded them with a place in His sunlight instead.

And liberal cretins repay THEIR HONOR AND INTEGRITY with spineless cowardice, treason, and sedition.

And well, well, well, now here is “Joe The Plumber” - and Joe IS the little guy, and he’s YOU and he’s ME, and he’s EVERY OTHER WORKING GUY IN THIS COUNTRY THAT RESENTS being told that WE have to “be patriotic, pay our fair share, pitch in...” et CETERA et CETERA, et CETERA...

Even as I write this, Rush Limbaugh is on the radio, saying that ALREADY, the liberal scumbag machine is attacking Joe, calling him a racist...setting out to destroy him.

They must be really scared of him, and us...

Thank you Mr. Wurzelbacher for your extremely eloquent rebuttal and expose of EXACTLY WHO AND WHAT the Democrats really are...nothing more than a bunch of socialist/communist idiotarians “hoping” and waiting to deconstruct and “CHANGE” America into something alien and horrible and soviet.

Thank you Joe Wurzelbacher, you may have just saved your country, more than you will ever know.

And to the libs...know this - you may very well win this election...you may win the House and the Senate...but you will NEVER WIN THIS COUNTRY AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

Not while one of US breathes.

PS: Freepers, please pardon the caps, I’m fuming right now.

Seem to remember reading Brit went to the same prep school as Kerry.

I didn't know that. The only way to make sense of the Fox News panel's weird loathing for Sarah Palin is that they don't like it that she's not an elitist like them. She didn't go to an ivy league college, she lives in (gasp!) Alaska, she has an upper plains accent, etc. How DARE she, the interloper.

I used to be a Fox junkie as well. I boycotted Fox for months after the primaries, when they constantly pushed for Rudy and McCain. I have been watching again the last couple months, but I am much more cynical about their coverage. Of all the debates for them to declare Obama the winner, this one was not it. This was McCain’s best debate IMO. I wonder if their rave reviews of Obama had to do with Obama’s comments against Fox News recently.

On a related note, I wonder what will happen to military recruitment levels. Those considering serving would certainly be more likely to do so under the command of a certified war hero. Enlistment under Zerobama would drop precipitously.

Thanks for posting the link to this interview! I refuse to watch any of the networks, but that was an interview worth watching.

I LOVE when he said "Why should a person be punished for being successful"???

THAT is what DemocRats do!

Isn't it great how God can put people in the right place at the right time? The ENEMEDIA are forced to report on Joe the plumber.
