Joe the Plumber

So I read a news article last night about Obama’s comments to Joe the Plumber. If you’re unfamiliar with the original story, here’s a recap:

Joe confronts Obama and asks him if he’s going to pay more taxes after he buys a plumbing company that makes over $250,000 a year. Obama says yes – you’ll pay more taxes and that money will be given to people “below” you so they have a chance to live the “American Dream”.

Ok. Before I go into my main rant, I want to get this out –

Obama is spouting Socialism. Take from the rich, give to the poor. Robin Hood if you will. I have no problem giving my money to the less fortunate. What I do have a problem with is the government FORCING me to give it to the less fortunate. You might as well bring Castro or Kim Jong Il in for the presidency.

Rant #1 over.

Back to the news article.

I read that analysts have checked into Joe and claim that he’s not a union plumber, has never been in the apprenticeship program to become a plumber, is not licensed to be a plumber and may owe some back taxes to the government.

WHAT?!

Who the flip cares?!

Joe could club baby seals for all I care. (Sorry, Kel) The big issue here is Obama’s Socialist plans. The moronic mainstream liberal media is spinning this just like everything else.

I hate spin. Spin sucks. Tell it like it is.

I weep for the next four years.

    it’s okay Erik, I know you don’t really mean it 😉

    but you’re right – I weep for the next four years too.
