"Joe the plumber" represents heartland American values.

When John McCain looked into the camera and spoke to Joe the plumber, he wasn't just speaking to Joe, he was speaking to every hard working American that doesn't want their taxes raised,their national defence weakened, or their country turned into Western Europe. At first, i wasn't sure if it was a good idea to bring Joe into the debate, but the media coverage today has made me think twice.

Joe the plumber (real name Samuel joseph wurzelbacher) is a guy from Ohio and is now a bit of a media sensation, at least for now. Joe has given several interviews, some of them blasting Obama on his tax increase proposals in a way that people can relate to and identify with. Joe speaks for the working man, because he is the working man, and he isn't swayed by Obamas slick ways and lies about tax cuts.

When McCain brought Joe into the debate, he brought all of us into the debate, and i think that Joe the Plumber might be the gift that keeps on giving.

The liberals are already attacking Joe, saying he isn't really a plumber. Who's surprised? There is some talk also that he may owe $1,300 in back taxes. Only the liberals would think that disqualifies him! LOL!

He took on the scrutiny of the entire country by taking on Obama. It's a shame McCain wouldn't do that. I think you are right, he certainly speaks for all us when he questioned Obama's "Distribution of wealth."

Thanks for the visit and your comment. I enjoyed your blog and will be back, if you will have me. :-)

And that is why Obama's storm troopers are furiously trying to destroy Joe the plumber. He presents the danger of those who honestly examine Obama's policies and enter political debate armed with knowledge. Great post!
