"Yesterday I worked on a water main break for a gas station and that's why I didn't give any interviews."
He also said he was "proud of what the U.S. military has accomplished in Iraq".
Yeah... it all comes together. I'll bet with a bit of digging they could discover that the guy might have fixed a broken faucet at a bank, too. Maybe even unclogged a toilet for a guy with a sub prime mortgage - and made him pay for it.
Updates below - the scandal grows!
Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., said Thursday morning that the Democratic ticket is more worried about "Joe the gas station owner" than Joe the plumber because, unlike Joe Wurzelbacher, the plumber who stole the show at Wednesday's presidential debate, most "Joes" are not making $250,000 a year.Maybe Biden is worried that Joe the (non-union) Plumber (see below) overcharged that gas station owner to fix that water main. But whether that's true or not, Joe never said he made 250,000 a year - he said he wanted to run a business that made that much. Joe the Biden should pay closer attention.
"We're worried about Joe the guy who owns the gas station, the barber, the grocer," the Democratic vice-presidential nominee told Good Morning America's Diane Sawyer. "Ninety-eight percent of the small business people in America make less than $250,000 a year, and they're going to get a real break under our plan. Joe the plumber, whose making over $250,000, is not going to get any more additional tax cuts with us."
But that's not important: "Look, John’s last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs." That's not Joe the Plumber counting - it's Joe 'College' Biden. (And is he really trying to say that black people can't count?)
Update 2: Joe is his MIDDLE NAME! IT ISN"T EVEN HIS FIRST NAME! WHY THE HECK WOULD ANYONE WANT TO GO BY THEIR MIDDLE NAME??!!?? Crap, if everyone went by their middle name the election would be between "Sidney" McCain and...
HEY, that's why he used his middle name - SO PEOPLE WOULD THINK OF OBAMAS MIDDLE NAME! RACISM! RACISM!! RAAAAAAACISSSSSMMMMMM!!!!!.
Update: Looks like Joe (the plumber - not the racist college guy) has made some enemies...
Mr. Wurzelbacher said he is working on taking the Ohio plumbing contractors’ license test.So once again, the issue that really matters will be completely lost in the asinine commentary that will soon follow. Gosh, who could have seen that coming?
Mr. Wurzelbacher’s notoriety has raised the ire of Tom Joseph, business manager for Local 50 of the United Association of Plumbers, Steamfitters, and Service Mechanics, who claimed that Mr. Wurzelbacher didn’t undergo any apprenticeship training.
"When you have guys going out there with no training whatsoever, it’s a little disreputable to start with," Mr. Joseph said. "We’re the real Joe the Plumber."
Mr. Joseph said Mr. Wurzelbacher could only legally work in the townships, but not in any municipality in Lucas County or elsewhere in the country.
"This individual has got no schooling, no licenses, he’s never been to a training program, union or non-union, in the United States of America," Mr. Joseph said.
The association has endorsed Barack Obama, according to Mr. Joseph.
My brother goes by his middle name. That's so he can be distinguished from my dad. They have the same first name, same initials, but different middle names. "Joe the Plumber" is really "Middle name Joe the Plumber"? Big freakin' deal....
Joe the Plumber isn't toeing the company line, so he must be destroyed...Posted by Miss Ladybug at October 17, 2008 02:46 AM
Poor, Joe... I'm praying for you man. By the time the MSM is done with you... well, it's not going to be pretty.
How dare you question the Obama? Didn't you know its the MSM's job to prop up and protect the Obama? Everybody cover the children's eyes...Posted by Pete Dawg at October 17, 2008 05:50 AM Hide Comments | Show/Add Comments in Popup Window(2) | (Note: You must refresh main page to view newly posted comments here)
