How is Joe able to hold down his job with all of these appearances he's making?Palin-Plumber for 2012!
Many people seem to suffer from the delusion that we want an average person in the White House. My guess would be that this results from ego and insecurity. My uncle might be a good example. He can't use a computer. He was a terrible student. He doesn't read any more than the local paper. In fact, he doesnt understand most of what happens in the world around him, but he wants someone like him to be elected President. Go figure.How is Joe able to hold down his job with all of these appearances he's making?
Joe agreeing with the guy from the crowd saying Israel will be dead if Obama wins was about on a par with Palin saying she has foreign policy experience because from somewhere in Alaska Russia is visible.
When did being stupid become something people look for in leaders?
Is this a result of growing up watching too many TV commercials?
I will certainly say that Fox is a problem. There seems to me to be a consistent slant to misrepresenting things to be divisive and promote the lame Far Right agenda. The anchors seem to universally be chosen to appeal to a certain Bible Study, trailer park crowd.I also think hate radio, and the likes of Fox News, have done serious damage to this country.
Actually it's McCain that yanked him from obscurity by injecting him in the middle of his rhetoric in the last debate.This is just getting rediculous. I haven't heard any one doing anything but making fun of this guy since the debates. How can he have gotten to this point?
Because if you can't have fun at someone else's expense, there is no fun....This is just getting rediculous. I haven't heard any one doing anything but making fun of this guy since the debates. How can he have gotten to this point?
I'm sure you can find plenty of articles. Apparently he asked Obama a question about his economic policies after one of the debates and McCain decided to use this man as an example of how his policies would be better for amercans than Obama's, particularly in regards to persons attempting to start thier own businesses as Mr Plumber was apparently intending to do. It's been a huge thing ever since. It's really annoying too. I couldn't stand to listen any more after I heard him brought up in the debates. I didn't even know who he was.Ok, I don't get much time to watch tv....but who is this Joe the Plumber guy? Why is there so much talk about him?
During the last debate McCain cited Joe the Plumber 21 times. Joe is mentioned repeatedly at every campaign rally and is now appearing at the rallies. (when he shows up)Ok, I don't get much time to watch tv....but who is this Joe the Plumber guy? Why is there so much talk about him?
Saying that making Joe the Plumber a campaign prop is a mistake by the McCain campaign is a fair point. Saying Joe the Plumber is an idiot for trying to cash in on a little good fortune that came his way is ignorant.Actually it's McCain that yanked him from obscurity by injecting him in the middle of his rhetoric in the last debate.
Joe for his part has apparently been seeking out the limelight ever since. The notion that he is being persecuted is a trumped up charge by McCain - because a) it was McCain that brought him up, b) it turns out that Joe's original premise about "buying" a business looks like rubbish, c) Joe keeps chasing the spotlight and hired this publicist, and has a reported deal to be a c&w singer and d) has now gone on to spew his apparently thoughtless ideas further confirming his apparently shallow understanding of the issues.
Joe knows as soon as the campaign is over he won't even be an asterisk. His 15 minutes will be up. In short Joe looks to me to have played an active part in promoting and buying into his own caricaturization in some effort to cash in.
And if that isn't enough, Joe is just one letter short of being a Joke.
He pretended to be a plumber planning on buying a plumbing business and it was all a lie, he's not even a licensed plumber.Ok, I don't get much time to watch tv....but who is this Joe the Plumber guy? Why is there so much talk about him?
Another blunder McCain has to dig out from under, his "joe the plumber' debacle. This is good for a chuckle. A good lesson, you might want to make sure the person you center your debate around isn't made up.
It's understandable that he would want to cash in for all the crassest reasons in the world. This may be the biggest payday he can ever get.Saying Joe the Plumber is an idiot for trying to cash in on a little good fortune that came his way is ignorant.
