Obama Attacks a Common American Who Dared to Question Him

Posted on October 17, 2008. Filed under: B. Hussein Obama's real record as a "reformer", B. Hussein Obamaniacs and the Quasi-Religious Approach to Candidacy, Obama's Grand Plan for Change |

Obama and Biden took to the campaign trail to personally smear a common American. Their target is the man who asked about Obama’s tax policies and received Obama’s comment, “I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” It has turned out that Joe Wurzelbacher, better known as Joe the Plumber, does not have a squeaky-clean background. Among his woes are owed back taxes, no current plumbers license, and some liens levied against him. However, despite Joe’s problems, what makes the concern he brought up any less valid? Also, how does it justify Obama and Biden to take to the campaign trail to personally attack this man? Perhaps the most infuriating part of the whole situation is that Joe the Plumber did not go to an Obama rally or seek Obama out in any way to ask a “gotcha” question. Obama actually came to Joe the Plumber’s neighborhood in Obama’s effort to knock on doors to solicit votes. When Obama came across Joe the Plumber in his own driveway, Joe posed the question to Obama which has now caused the Obama machine to diligently work to trash the average American’s reputation.

Biden went on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and declared that he doesn’t know of any plumbers making a quarter million dollars a year. As if the idea of a small plumbing business owner clearing the $250,000 income level is unbelievable and, worse yet, undeserved. This is the most elitist attitude that should offend every American who works every day only to have politicians like Biden and Obama wanting to take more of their paychecks to pay for their own salaries and government give-away programs. Biden won’t mention this on the campaign trail but his tax return showed his income over $2 million, yet his charitable donations came in less than $4,000. Seems like he’s all for giving away money, as long as it isn’t his own.

Obama was even worse, mocking McCain by saying, “The guy he’s fighting for is a plumber!” This comment was met with laughter from his audience. This only further shows Obama’s contempt for working Americans. If McCain is not out fighting for the plumbers and working people in this country, Obama and Biden have proven that no one else will. Obama needs to realize that the country has plenty more plumbers in it than elitist, arrogant liberal politicians who feel they should be able to manage everyone’s life and finances due to their belief that common people aren’t smart enough to take care of themselves. When considering Obama’s statement mocking McCain for caring about a plumber, also consider this comment he made to his fellow elitist arrogant liberals during an exclusive fundraiser in San Francisco during the primaries. In this event, Obama said, “You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them… And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

It’s time for the American people to stand up and tell Obama and his elitist followers that they will not be talked down to about their abilities to run their own lives. The best thing that could happen for America would be to retire Obama to the footnotes of history as a subpar, useless US Senator. Obama has never earned money that wasn’t somehow tied to the taxpayers. For most of his career, he could have considered increased tax rates as a pay raise for himself. However, American values have never included the idea that a couple of politicians can determine what is a fair or unfair income for a plumber or any other working person. Obama and Biden look at average Americans with contempt. Voters need to look at them the same way on November 4.

The latest I’ve heard from the Obama supporters is that Joe the Plumber and his parents were once on welfare. They tried to say that this makes choosing Joe’s story an even bigger goof up by McCain’s team.

Hmm… if I’m not mistaken Democrats usually are pro-welfare and for free handouts. Joe is an example of someone who was down on his luck, pulled himself up from his bootstraps, is definitely middle class yet still is supporting McCain. Nice try Dems.

    Is this really a new type of politician? Or is the Obama machine just using politics as usual in their campaign?
