In the last 24 hours the MSM has done to Joe the Plumber what they should have done to Barack HUSSEIN Obama when he announced he was running for President. They didn't do it then and they still refuse to uncover any stones that might reveal who this man really is. No, they have gone to the same extreme to cover up his past.
I have been wondering just how far will the media go to discredit and destroy this common, mainstream American, Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, who happened to ask an honest question to Obama's face --- who was campaigning in this guy's neighborhood!
They are trying to destroy him so they can negate the question. The question was valid whether the man makes $250,000 now or not.... whether he has a license or not... whether he now owns a business or not... whether he is a Republican or not! I saw him in a subsequent interview where he explained that even now when he doesn't make that much money he doesn't want the government to take from people who do make that much and give it to him. Hurray for him. Mr. Wurzelbacher gets it. He knows that someday the government might decide that $100,000 is too much to make and that someday that amount might be considered the tipping point. God help us.
It is too bad BHO's answer is really what the media is trying their best to silence. Spreading the wealth around is what they believe so why not be proud of it? Why aren't they talking about how great it would be to adhere to that philosophy?
I can't express my feelings any better than Gary Bauer did today in his daily e-letter. I agree with his take on it:
"The Terrorist And The Plumber
Joe the plumber is in trouble. He has committed an unspeakable act – he spoke up for capitalism and free enterprise. He publicly spoke taboo words: “I don’t want to be taxed more just because I work harder.” But it gets even worse. His words have put the Messiah from Illinois, Barack Obama, on the defensive. There is only one solution: Joe must be destroyed. (With the media fixated on Joe, maybe Sarah Palin will get a break!)
The same media that have done nothing to investigate Weather Underground terrorist William Ayers, the same media that have ignored the relationship between Ayers and Obama, the same big shot reporters who have turned Michelle Obama into a mystery woman whose views are “off limits,” and the same media that left no stone unturned in Alaska trying to embarrass Sarah Palin – that media are now in a feeding frenzy to destroy Blue Collar Joe. And the Obama/Biden campaign is piling on, too.
In the last 24-hours the inquiring minds of the press have discovered that Joe once had a tax lien against him for $1,200. Several press outlets charged that he wasn’t even registered to vote. Then they dropped that attack and replaced it with an even more damaging charge: He is registered, but – GASP! – “He’s a Republican!”
Diane Sawyer wanted to know whether the McCain campaign had talked to Joe before he confronted Obama The Savior. (No, it had not.) Then this news broke last night – he isn’t really a plumber because he didn’t finish the Ohio licensing requirements. Before the day is over, we will know whether he ever said a cross word, had too much to drink or passed gas.
The goal is clear: Destroy Joe before Americans wake up to the fact that they are close to electing the most far left, pro-abortion, anti-military, socialism-advocating candidate in the history of the United States.
Pray for Joe, his family and his friends. Unless he recants and pledges allegiance to Obama in the next few days, Joe is toast."
