The Obama/Biden ticket exposed it’s true self today in media interviews and campaign stops across the country today.
From the first time Biden hit the airwaves today, the star of last night’s debate-Joe the Plumber- was villified. On Good Morning America, Biden said that he and Obama were not worried about Joe the Plumber but rather the “Joes” that make less than $250,000 a year. He continued on the Today show by sating that he did not have “any Joe the Plumbers in my neighborhood that make $250,000 a year.” and also sated that he wasn’t worried about anyone who would not get a tax cut under Obama’s plan.
Obama continued his running mate’s undermining of the American work ethic (you know the one about working hard to succeed) on the stump today when he called Joe the Plumber out. While campaigning today in NH, Obama asked the audience how many of them had ever heard of a plumber making $250,000 a year and repeated his often used phrase ” a tax cut for 95% of all workers”. This was after he blasted McCain for wanting to stand up for a plumber was told by Obama that his success would have to shared with everyone not making as much money as he would if he was a small business owner.
Of course under the leadership of Obama/Biden, the media and other Democrats across the country took to vilifying Joe the Plumber as well. Stories about his lack of plumbing skills hit the Internet, the newspapers and the airwaves as fast as they could be reported. (Note: I did not say confirmed.) He was called out for his inability to pay back taxes (Wait, didn’t Obama/Biden pledge to raise his taxes thus increasing his already sizable burden?) by the media as well. Bloggers have accused him of being racist, a plant by McCain, and called into question his ability to even cast a ballot (Diane Sawyer even did that) as well as attacking the use of the “Joe the Plumber” moniker because his real name is Samuel(according to records unearthed by bloggers with no lives), and have even called him a REPUBLICAN!!!!!!!!
What did Joe do to deserve this kind of attention? He asked Obama a straight and hard question! The true colors of the Obama/Biden campiagn were unfurled today as they continued to attack a man whose only crime was trying to better himself and his station in life. That is the true platform of the Obama/Biden campaign-success will cost you. Hopefully every “Joe the Plumber” will use this as their wake up call and realize that redistribution of wealth of a decidedly un-American thing to do.
