Joe The Plumber Owned The Night

Joe the plumber was the man of the night. During the third and last debate for the Presidential candidates Joe was mentioned frequently. Joe Wurzelbacker shook hands with Senator Obama after a stump speech in Toledo Sunday. On the rope line, Wurzelbacker asked Obama about his tax plan. "Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn't it", Joe asked.

Obama said, yes, it would. Joe went on to explain he had worked all his adult life to finally be in position to buy his company and get his slice of the American dream. Then, Obama went on to tell the truth, finally, about his tax plan. "My attitude is that if the economy's good for the folks from the bottom up, it's gonna be good for everybody. I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody." Obama the socialist surfaces among the regular folks.

Obama continues on with his pie in the sky nonsense that government will create jobs, just give him more tax money. Never mind that this scam has never worked. And where exactly does he get is numbers when he decides the cut off point on who is 'rich' and who is not?

Obama's claim that he will reduce taxes on 95% of Americans has been discredited across the board but he continues on with it. He also expects to cut checks to those who don't even pay taxes in the form of a rebate from the government. This makes no sense at all.

Where do his financial advisers get off deciding $250, 000 makes a 'rich' person? It's all relative, isn't it? If you live in a large city, you know that $250,000 doesn't make you rich at all. It is typical class warfare from the candidate of change. Economics from the bottom up has never worked. People at the bottom do not create jobs. Government does not create jobs, except if you work for the government. The single strongest engine in our economy is that of small business.

Small business organizations have come out to support Senator McCain. Why? Because Senator McCain understands how the economy is grown. His wife is a business owner and meets a payroll while employing a large amount of people. Do Senator Obama or his wife have that history? No. They live off government jobs.

Senator Obama couldn't define a capital gains tax from the first debate. He still doesn't get it. He doesn't understand the percentage rate of which small business is taxed. And, he wants to demand the health insurance coverage plan chosen by you for your employees, or else he will slap a fine on you. Socialism.

Joe the plumber gets it. Joe the plumber is out there every day trying to make a living and buy a business. Joe the plumber would like to create jobs and support his own family, without the interference of the federal government. That is the American dream. That is what our freedom is all about.

The best line from Senator McCain? "Senator Obama, I'm not President Bush." That has been the campaign talking point from the beginning. The far left, for whom Obama does his bidding, has vilified President Bush for 8 years now. To them, Bush is Lucifer himself. So, Obama is such a shallow thinker that he lumps McCain in with Bush. Problem is, everyone knows McCain is quite different from Bush. Obama knows it. He just doesn't care. Mr. Change will say anything to get elected. That's the Chicago way.

Obama will just keep whistling through those teeth, smiling, putting on the faux folksy accented speech. Quite the actor, that one.

I too was very pleased with last night's debate and particularly with McCain's "if you wanted to run against George Bush, you should have done that four years ago."

Saw Joe the Plumber on GMA this morning. Wonder if he had any idea how much of a fixture he'd be in the last days of this campaign?

Frankly I found the debate boring, except for McCain's occasional zingers. There should have been more of those. He missed several opportunities to press Obama on issues like Ayers, Wright (why oh why won't McCain allow that to be a question from his campaign), the abortion vote and the judiciary comments.

It was basically the same old talking points from both of them - they really didn't tell us anything new until the moderator finally asked questions we hadn't heard them talk about yet.

Not a game changer for me - McCain/Palin will still get my vote.

Gallup has tightened to a near dead heat. It will be funny if it's a plumber who brings down The One.

Sometimes it takes a plumber to unclog a toilet.
