McCain Defends The Plumber`
DrudgeReport ^

Posted on 10/17/2008 11:05:07 AM PDT by avant_garde

It's great to be here in Miami. Florida is a must-win state on November 4th, and with your help, we're going to win Florida, and bring change to Washington, DC. We had a good debate this week. You may have noticed-- there was a lot of talk about Senator Obama's tax increases and Joe the Plumber. Last weekend, Senator Obama showed up in Joe's driveway to ask for his vote, and Joe asked Senator Obama a tough question. I'm glad he did; I think Senator Obama could use a few more tough questions.

She’s talking about him today. The Demo spin coming out of the press is worse than I have ever seen. And it should result in a lowering of earnings per share for the news operations in the future.

If JTP was a plant it’s great that Osama played along and visited him at his house.

As long as people can see it— works for me.

Last night in his speech, one of McCain’s jokes was that he was replacing his campaign staff and the new chief spokesperson was going to be, Joe the Plumber. The crowd really laughed, and Obama was not happy, though he did have that practiced smile.

Here’s another idea: Buy a pkg of bumper sticker paper. Make “I AM Joe the Plumber!!” bumper stickers to distribute as you mentioned. Instead of tossing paper, I’d betcha you’ll see a LOT of people posting them all over the place.

Another bumper sticker: “Joe the Plumber represents the American Dream!” (spell it out because the BO cult doesn’t get that part)

And under it: “nObama RIDICULES the American Dream!”

from a PUMA website: “Joe has now apparently lost his job, and just minutes ago Obama was on national TV mocking him, saying “how are things going now”

This was the end of his speech in Miami today:

I know you’re worried. America is a great country, but we are at a moment of national crisis that will determine our future. Will we continue to lead the world’s economies or will we be overtaken? Will the world become safer or more dangerous? Will our military remain the strongest in the world? Will our children and grandchildren’s future be brighter than ours?

My answer to you is yes. Yes, we will lead. Yes, we will prosper. Yes, we will be safer. Yes, we will pass on to our children a stronger, better country. But we must be prepared to act swiftly, boldly, with courage and wisdom.

I know what fear feels like. It’s a thief in the night who robs your strength. I know what hopelessness feels like. It’s an enemy who defeats your will. I felt those things once before. I will never let them in again. I’m an American. And I choose to fight.

Don’t give up hope. Be strong. Have courage. And fight.

Fight for a new direction for our country. Fight for what’s right for America. Fight to clean up the mess of corruption, infighting and selfishness in Washington.

Fight to get our economy out of the ditch and back in the lead.

Fight for the ideals and character of a free people.

Fight for our children’s future.

Fight for justice and opportunity for all.

Stand up to defend our country from its enemies.

Stand up, stand up, stand up and fight. America is worth fighting for. Nothing is inevitable here. We never give up. We never quit. We never hide from history. We make history.

Now, let’s go win this election and get this country moving again.

Great ideas. I have very limited time— I have to work BOTH days this weekend and almost EVERY day throughout the election. I can only do the simplest activity.

But I WILL be doing this.

And those with more time should take it much further.

“The response from Senator Obama and his campaign yesterday was to attack Joe. People are digging through his personal life and he has TV crews camped out in front of his house. He didn’t ask for Senator Obama to come to his house. He wasn’t recruited or prompted by our campaign. He just asked a question. And Americans ought to be able to ask Senator Obama tough questions without being smeared and targeted with political attacks.”

McCain needs to hammer this. Blue collars won't like the elitist liberals smearing Joe the Plumber.
