The Left Declares War on Joe the Plumber

Michelle Malkin : The Left Declares War on Joe the Plumber - Townhall.com

Six-term Sen. Joe Biden's got some nerve going after citizen Joe the Plumber. But the entrenched politician from Delaware, who fancies himself the nation's No. 1 Ordinary Joe, had no choice. Obama-Biden simply can't tolerate an outspoken citizen successfully painting the Democratic ticket as socialist overlords. And so a dirty, desperate war against Joe Wurzelbacher is on.

The left's political plumbers are attacking the messenger, rummaging through his personal life and predictably wielding the race card once again. It's standard operating procedure for the Obama thug machine.

Wurzelbacher, in case you've been in hibernation, is the small-business man from Ohio who questioned Obama about his tax plan during a Toledo campaign swing last weekend. The revealing exchange was caught on tape and broadcast widely across the Internet and TV airwaves.

In response to Wurzelbacher's question about why he should be "taxed more and more for fulfilling the American dream," Obama sermonized that he needed to "spread the wealth around" because "it's good for everybody."

No high horse, just a comment on how we have evolved.

@Drnaline,
It was a comment on the post, not the poster. Referring to a political party as thugs undermines any comment that follows.

@Drnaline,
Well first off, Sanchez again chooses an article cherry picked by the Right... quote mine already established! The whole "Spread the wealth around" that's got the pull-string doll saying "Socialism" nonstop now.

Here's the link concerning Joe's question: PolitiFact | Small businesses are exempt

Now, on to spreadin!

CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - Fact check: Obama said he would ’spread his wealth around’? - Blogs from CNN.com

This is known as "quote mining". Republicans and Creationists do this a lot.

As for Joe himself... shoulda paid those taxes I suppose.

@Drnaline,
Wurzelbacher is about $1000 behind on his taxes. Hardly an issue any news org. would take notice of for any other reason than to discredit a person. Why would anyone look into a private citizen's personal affairs who a politician approached his yard and began a conversation with?
Obama did nothing wrong. He simply accidentally publicly exposed his socialist agenda.
And yes, the right will use a politician's words to expose him for what he is. Especially when the media ignores anything that may cast a shadow over any aspect of that politician.
The wrong in going after Wurzelbacher is that going after him was an effort to focus on him rather than the content of Obama's answer.

It was Mccain that brought "joe im not really a plumber" to the public's attention,by using him in a presidential debate,you would think he would have got his fact's right before doing so :lightbulb:

So dirt hasn't been dug up on anybody else? Not at all? Surely you jest.

Not paying your taxes is definitely something to hear about when you're trying to knock a person's tax plan.

I like how you've picked up the socialist meme just as expected. "When one starts barking, they all start barking."

Does that make it any less a quote mine? C'mon... stay balanced.

Care to show some examples on this site? In the spirit of fair play, of course.

That's exactly what I'm saying.

Keep chanting the meme though.
