Joe Plummer: Character Assassination

Character Assassination at it's best... or Not!

This is a very sad story of someone... an 'ordinary Joe'... who asked a certain media darling Presidencial candidate a question on his economic plan for his administration.

The reward for his inquisitiveness?

Very simple. The media is scratching through every closet and trash can they can find to discredit the 'ordinary Joe.'

You think that 'ordinary Joe' would have left well enough alone by not taking the bait of the MSM to honor their invitations to come on their T.V. shows. So one could say he deserved it.

On the other hand one could say that the deer who freezes on the road when the headlight go on, deserves to get hit by the car.


In our 'ordinary Joe's case I don't believe all the dirt that is being published by the MSM is very necessary and really doesn't matter. He merely exposed what he sees as a flaw in Mr. Obama's economic plan.

Mainly, that Mr. Obama is taking away the American Dream. You can succeed as long as you don't succeed too much .

Think of it as a ladder where if one reaches a certain height the rungs are missing beyond a certain point.

$250,000 a year is well beyond my economic capacity but I don't want the government saying "Don't even think about reaching that limit... or else will take it away and give it to whomever we choose."

Anyway, I feel for "ordinary Joe" .... he got caught in the headlights.

It use to be in certain countries (still today) if you spoke out of turn or said something that offended someone, a car would pull up late at night and take you away, never to be heard of again.

Now we just send the MSM after you to splash your life on T.V. and news outlets for everyone to see.

Joe Plummer

HOLLAND, Ohio -- Joe the Plumber's story sprang a few leaks Thursday.

Turns out that the man who was held up by John McCain as the typical, hard-working American taxpayer isn't really a licensed plumber. And court documents show he owes nearly $1,200 in back taxes.

"Joe," whose name is Samuel J. Wurzelbacher, was cited repeatedly in Wednesday night's final presidential debate by McCain for questioning Barack Obama's tax policy.

Wurzelbacher instantly became a media celebrity, fielding calls during the debate and facing reporters outside his home near Toledo on Thursday morning for an impromptu nationally televised news conference.The burly, bald man acknowledged he doesn't have a plumber's license, but said he didn't need one because he works for someone else at a company that does residential work.

But Wurzelbacher still would need to be a licensed apprentice or journeyman to work in Toledo, and he's not, said David Golis, manager and residential building official for the Toledo Division of Building Inspection.

State and local records show Wurzelbacher has no license, although his employer does. Golis said there are no records of inspectors citing Wurzelbacher for unlicensed work in Toledo.

And then there was the matter of his taxes.
