“Obviously,” Joe the Plumber’s daring to challenge “The One” I refer to as “Mr. BOOHOO-OUCH, PUNK” (Barack O-bomba Overseas Hussein Obambi” Obama – Objectively Unfit Coddler of Haters, Previously Unaccomplished Nonsupporter of Kin) means that a blue-collar guy’s tax liens are more important than the fact that an off-the-teleprompter Obama was goaded into saying unequivocally what he truly believes.
Not around here, because Joe’s not on the ballot, and all the character assassination in the world won’t erase this:
Obama: It’s not that I want to punish your success, I just want to make sure that everybody who gets behind you, that they’ve got the chance at success too. I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.
I’m left wondering how anyone has ever succeeded in America without Obama’s “wealth-spreading.” But succeed they have, to an extent found nowhere else in the world. Obama’s “wealth-spreading” ideas, if fully enacted, will do more to ruin entrepreneurs’ chances of success, and the economy’s chances of sustained long-term growth, than anything previously passed under any administration.
Once again (I hope), as seen in this post from June about his Social Security tax plan, Obama has shown that he doesn’t even understand the difference between “income” and “wealth” (or net worth). I say “I hope,” because the alternative is worse. If Obama does plan on taxing “wealth” too — beyond ramping up the death tax to pre-2001 levels — you’re going to see capital flee the country in a big way.
Joe the Plumber, who has been subjected to more scrutiny in the past 48 hours by Old Media than Obama has seen in 24 months, has also, I believe, virtually guaranteed that Obama will remain in a protective, public access-free cocoon for the next 2-1/2 weeks, lest another socialist utterance (yes, Jill – socialist) escape into public view.
People who follow football know that playing prevent defense all too often prevents winning the game, especially if the opponent’s offense doesn’t panic and patiently picks them apart.
Figuratively, there’s about 2:30 left in the fourth quarter. Even if you buy into the idea that McCain is behind (which I don’t), it’s by less than a touchdown.
Actually, Gallup’s latest indicates that it’s less than a field goal among those most likely to vote:
Joe the Plumber just stopped Team Obama on third and short, forcing a punt to Team McCain, which now has the ball at about its own 40. The GOP candidate’s Wednesday debate performance indicates that the campaign might actually try to utilize all available weapons in its its final drive. It had better. There is no tomorrow.
Mocking Joe the Plumber? Wow, blue-collar folks across America will just loooooove that.
Yeah, Obama really cares about average people (/sarc). Let me spell it out for you, pal — E-L-I-T-I-S-T.
