Time to brush up the tax debate.
John McCain feels it is right to bring up ‘Joe the everything‘ at every opportunity – especially when it comes down to taxation.
Odd that – his tax plan won’t give people who need it as much money back as Obama’s plan, but does give a greater tax break to those who don’t need it, including John McCain himself.
Obama’s plan will even give Joe a real tax break – if Joe should start earning some real money, in about 5 years, McCain’s plan may kick in – but I doubt Joe would ever make that kinda money.
John McCain on Thursday kicks off his “Joe the Plumber” tour to woo Florida’s blue-collar vote, as Barack Obama returns to Indiana, a traditionally red state where McCain is ahead.
“Whether it’s Joe the Plumber in Ohio, or Joe over here … we shouldn’t be taxing our small businesses, as Obama wants to do,” McCain said as he thanked the ‘Joes’ in Ormond Beach.
McCain charged that Obama believes in “redistributing the wealth, not in policies that grow our economy and create jobs and opportunities for all Americans.”
“Sen. Obama is more concerned with controlling who gets your piece of the pie than he is in growing the pie,” McCain said.
You can factcheck John McCain here, but the verdict is:
False. McCain uses an overly broad interpretation of the NFIB survey’s figures — applying Obama’s tax plan to those figures in a way that is highly unlikely to match reality.
McCain clams that Obama will do and say anything to get elected, the reverse is obviously true.
Not only that – McCain insists that Obama stop ripping into Joe, why? McCain brought Joe into the lime-light, if McCain would shut up about him then I am sure the Obama campaign would, too.
This, on the back of McCain’s camp coming off the wheels is that Palin STILL doesn’t understand what the VP actually does.
The woman is an embarrassment! I don’t know if it is good that she and her husband are being questioned about the ‘Taser-gate’ as she likes to call it, whether it is a good thing or bad thing for McCain that is.
Maybe he should have vetted her first?
Thomas Van Flein said he will be present for the depositions by the governor and her husband, Todd Palin. Each deposition will be done separately, with Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate, giving hers in St. Louis, Missouri, a campaign adviser said.
Walt Monegan requested the fact-finding hearing before the state Personnel Board after he was fired as public safety director in July. He claims his reputation has been “unjustifiably tarnished” by a false accusation of misconduct.
I can see why McCain is erratic – he doesn’t know where to put his face.
12 days to go? No pressure there, then?
