Samuel Wurzelbacher, who on Thursday morning accused CNN of being like TMZ and trying to trap him with “gotcha questions,” explained to POLITICO immediately following the tense interview that he is “sick of the gossip and drama.”
Reached on his cellphone after his early morning TV hit, Wurzelbacher, better known to many Americans as “Joe the Plumber,” explained why he had gotten flustered.

What qualifies me? Wurzelbacher said, laughing. One, Im an American citizen. Two, Im very much involved in the process of whats going on. I guess my question would be, what qualifies the current politicians who are killing our country, Republicans and Democrats alike?
He added, Im sorry, it just seems like a silly question............................I think Joe has great potential to be a good conservative Congressman.
Better get used to the shenanigans,Joe. It’ll get worse before it gets better. Just ask Sarah Palin. Something tells me you can handle it though!
Wonder if anyone ask Abe that question.
I really like Joe, but he is not gonna win. Kaptur is the #2 Congressional purveyor of pork, perhaps trailing only the late John Murtha. People in Toledo are addicted to the Federal Pork she brings home.
The leftwing media cannot allow this to stand.
This should have been his response:
No Person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen. [U.S. Constitution, Article I, section 3, clause 3]
Lets stop with the seventh grade shenanigans.
What? CNN and all will loose their viewers. IMHO, Seventh grade seems to me to be a little high for their average viewer's comprehension.
“Wonder if anyone ask Abe that question.”
Actually, the condescending eastern snobs in Lincoln’s OWN Cabinet, looked down their unaccomplished, patrician noses at him throughout his entire Presidency.
Look, I understand what you are saying, but what’s your point? Just give up? Roll over?
I’m tired of the cynicism and defeatism. That’s exactly why we’re where we are.
This is what we need to keep in mind:
“The last time we saw one whole despotic region of the world come tumbling down we could name the heroes and the moments that propelled it:
An electrician named Lech Walesa, jumping a wall at the Gdansk shipyard. Boris Yeltsin atop a tank in front of the Russian White House, defying the Communist old guard in 1991. Pastor Laszlo Tokes, refusing an eviction notice from his Romanian flat as crowds of demonstrators gathered. A playwright named Vaclav Havel before a joint session of Congress, giving in Czech a speech quoting the Declaration of Independence.
These men weren’t perfect, but they performed brave deeds at pivotal moments in history. They helped Westerners find common ground with a part of the world blocked from view until the fall of the Berlin Wall behind strange languages, customs, and a muffled history.”
If you want to be a wet blanket, just...well, just don’t.
IMHO, Seventh grade seems to me to be a little high for their average viewer’s comprehension.
The President’s speeches aren’t above that level either. Makes a perfect fit...
what was Davey Crockett’s?
he killed a bear?
I live in Alabama. Where do I write to get my mail in ballot for Joe? Since illegals can vote all over the country, and I am LEGAL, I should be able to vote for anyone I want too. Americans elected an illegal from Kenya didn’t they?
yes. but it must be done before the age of 3.
He laughed. Liberals hate to be laughed at.
What the heck is “chin music”???
Hey! He killed a bear when he was only 3! What had you done by the time you were three? Hmmmm? I'm thinking ya'd only pooped and 'et.
LOL, I'm wondering that too.
What the heck is chin music???
A baseball pitch directed at the chin of the batter. A knockdown pitch, if you will.
I believe that “chin music” is an Italian expression to F-off made with a swish of the hand under the chin.
Chin music is a baseball term. It is a pitch thrown high and inside (under the chin) intended to back the batter off the plate and open up the inside for subsequent pitches.
whoa jr. calm down. i meant Davey Crockett qualified back then by todays standards? no, but we the people is just that, we don’t have professional congress people like kerry, and if thats professional, thats why we are in the mess we are today.
we need more Mountain men in congress.
and by the time i was three i killed an alligator, a lion and a buffalo and then pooped.
Davey “kilt a bar” when he was ONLY three??? Good heavens, what 2nd amendment nut case let that poor child get his hands on a gun. Call the “gun nazis”, call the chile welfare service people, notify PETA, notify the Endangered Specie investigators, call the EPA to stop the insertion of LEAD into the environment. Where was the day care provider as this innocent babe wandered into such danger?
Thanks for the answer. I can’t believe I’ve never heard that term before.
Whoa! Man, then you are not only qualified for Congress but you should probably be out there running for CIC.
That is the big problem of this country today. The Eastern Establishment with the liberalism, “to get along, you go along” mentality needs to go for our good !
> Actually, the condescending eastern snobs in Lincolns OWN Cabinet, looked down their unaccomplished, patrician noses at him throughout his entire Presidency.
Ahah! I’m not sure how I’ve never heard that before. Thanks!
So sadly true. We know that corruption wins in this most corrupted democracy (republic) on the planet.
Chin music is indeed a baseball term, but I am more familiar with it’s usage by Shawn Michaels. Sweet chin music superkick.
We used to cruise on the Princess Line, whose only option for CCTV news was CNN. It was annoying, but we dealt with it on short cruiss. Then we were cruising when Dick Cheney had that gun accident. All we heard was CNN’s spin and we were dying to hear the truth. A 14-day cruise completely isolated from the truth. arrrgh! Princess refuses to carry FNC; we refuse to use Princess.
Flustered? His answer seemed pretty spot-on!
When he was only three.
There was a reason Davy told then they could go to hell, he was going to Texas.
I was trapped in New Zealand for two years with only CNN International (which is 1000% more leftist than regular CNN). Being an election year they had total, wall-to-wall coverage of the Democrat convention and blocked the Republicans. The only thing worse was BBC International. There’s a reason the World hates us. They NEVER receive a single, positive word in America’s defense.
ever since i killed the buffalo they doubled hitlary’s security.
I want to be trapped back in Kiwi land..........
Then we need to un-corrupt or corrupt it to our purposes. Seriously, we need to stop f***in' around with these people. They play by Chicago Mob rules, and we better be ready like Elliot Ness and J. Edgar to get down and get ugly.

I met Joe a few years ago at CPAC. He really is politically saavy and knowledgeable. Good candidate.
Joe should have used the Romney approach. You ask the questions, but I answer them how I want period. He then should have launched into his message on jobs, the economy, etc. Just ignore the follow-ups and continue to stay on message. It drives the MSM mad.
Exactly. "Credentialism" or "Expert-ism" is how the Ruling Class exerts control. For them the vetting process consists of having candidates approved by "their" academics.
Yes, and a lot of FReepers seem to buy into that way of feeling.
