Now where is her camera?
The soap opera that follows this woman is – well, beyond imagination. Each time she opens her mouth she takes another foot out – but, I am coming to the conclusion that it isn’t actually her – it can’t be, can it?
There must be one or more of her puppet masters who are telling her what to say, so it must be them that is so out of touch or a combination of both.
We have to look at who put Same “Joe the Plumber” Wurzelbacher in the public eye. It wasn’t Barack Obama – it was John McCain. He was the one who referred to ‘Joe’ during the debate to try to throw Obama off his message, as we all know it didn’t work – but still…
Joe The Plumber, real name Samuel Joe Wurzelbacher of Toledo, Ohio, was made famous by Sen. John McCain who invoked his name during Wednesday’s presidential debate.
Now, the Queen of the North is getting all itsy about the scrutiny that ‘Joe’ is coming under. Like that wasn’t going to happen.
It is laughable that McCain invokes this guy and then expects him just to be washed away in a few days – McCain, even now is still putting this guy front and centre in his campaign.
There is a bit of advice for Palin and McBush – Stop talking about him and the News crews will leave – it is as simple as that. For some reason it is now Barack Obama’s fault that ‘Joe’ is getting all his dirty laundry out in the open – well ya don’t say!
Maybe, just maybe, instead of trying to get a Dan Quayle moment in the debate, the McCain camp thought it through – this poor guy would be living his life in as much bliss as he once was. But no – desperation is getting the better of McCain – what it is with Palin is simple stupidity – but that is another blog.
“So here’s a guy working — standing there in his neighborhood when a candidate for president shows up and he wanted more than just a handshake and a campaign button. He wanted some answers.” [Palin said]
If that scenario sounds familiar, it’s because a strikingly similar thing happened to Palin on September 27 in Philadelphia at one of her own staged photo-ops, when Temple graduate student Michael Rovito approached the governor at a cheese-steak shop to ask her opinions on cross-border raids into Pakistan to hunt terrorists.
Palin told Rovito the United States should “absolutely” attack within Pakistan to stop terrorists, a position at odds with McCain’s. The remark was picked up by a network camera crew and caused a headache for the GOP ticket. Staffers were forced to explain the two candidates’ apparently conflicting views in a national television interview days later.
Pot and Kettle and all that.
Not only this – Palin is going to appear on Saturday Night Live – now why would she do this? I’ll let you guess at that one.
Undoubtedly the script will have been looked over, re-written, looked over and re-written again so it doesn’t make Palin look more of the dope she really is.
Do remember, Sarah – Alaska is wait for you to return should you lose this election. There are people up there who are going to ask you a few questions about a few buildings and redos of the mansion – and dear old Todd building a few things that were, ‘paid for?’
Palin must be desperate to win – that way she won’t have to go back to Alaska – that way she can be protected from the press – once this election is over she won’t have that protection and will have to answer those ‘hard’ questions once back in the cold north.
Those questions I will blog about – I can guarantee that!
Sen. Obama had been campaigning outside Toledo, Ohio, on October 13 when he met Joe Wurzelbacher, 34, who works for Newell Plumbing & Heating Co., a small firm in the Toledo area. “I’m getting ready to buy a company that makes $250-270-80 thousand a year,” Wurzelbacher said. “Your new tax plan is going to tax m more, isn’t it?”
Obama explained his tax plan during the roughly five-minute exchange — telling Wurzelbacher that the tax rate on the portion of his income that was more than $250,000 would be increased from 36 percent to 39 percent. But he also mentioned that his plan includes a 50 percent small-business tax credit for health care and a proposal to eliminate the capital-gains tax for small businesses that increase in value. Obama said his tax plan, which he said focuses on bigger breaks for people making lower incomes, would be good for the economy. “If you’ve got a plumbing business, you’re going to be better off if you’ve got a whole bunch of customers who can afford to hire you,” he said. “Right now, everybody’s so pinched that business is bad for everybody. And I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”
Wurzelbacher said, “The reason I ask you about the American Dream, I mean I’ve worked hard. I’m a plumber. I work 10, 12 hours a day and I’m buying this company and I’m going to continue working that way. … I’m getting taxed more and more while fulfilling the American Dream.”
In an interview with CNN on Thursday, October 16, Wurzelbacher said he had misunderstood Obama’s plan and that the company he wants to buy makes well less than $250,000 a year — which Obama says means his taxes would not be increased.
Misleading. McCain’s remark was an oversimplification of a five-minute-long conversation. Obama replied in great detail about his tax plan, and the “spread the wealth” remark was one small part of the conversation.
