Joe the Plumber: my take

I was talking to some liberal co-workers tonight, and I mentioned the liberal media. They argued with me, saying that CNN is non-biased. I pointed out one example of their liberal bias: the Soledad O’Brien reaction after the Biden/Palin debate. They still disagreed. They actually said that Keith Olbermann was not biased. I can only hope they were joking.

So I continued past that, and mentioned the “Joe the Plumber” incident. I told them that the liberal media has been attacking Joe because he’s not a plumber, his first name isn’t Joe (he goes by his middle name), he doesn’t make 250K, he might be related to someone who knows someone involved in the “Keating 5” scandal, he was a Republican plant (This one is ludicrous. Obama walked up to JOE in JOE’s front yard.), etc. Then I said that the important part was not what Joe said or who Joe is, but what Obama said in response to Joe’s question about taxes: “My attitude is that if the economy’s good for folks from the bottom up, it’s gonna be good for everybody … I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”

Spreading the wealth around, my friends, is called socialism. Here is a quote from the Wikipedia article on Socialism: “In general, Socialist systems want to redistribute wealth from those of greater means to those of lesser means.” In other words, “spread the wealth around.” Obama is a socialist. So it doesn’t matter what Joe said or who Joe is or who he’s related to, what matters is that his conversation with Obama revealed Obama’s true ideals.

My coworker just said, “Well, he was sloppy.” I said, “what do you mean, ‘sloppy’?” She said, “He didn’t really mean that.” She has been blinded by the Obamessiah. He can do no wrong. That’s dangerous, folks. I am voting for McCain, but I am under no delusion that the man is right in everything he does.

    >My thoughts and situation on the matter is the same. Even when Obama tells the truth, his followers say he didn’t mean that. Or he slipped. Obama doesn’t have to say anything for the rest of his campaign. If he just answered with “no comment” to every quesion for two more weeks, Fox News would have no new ammo to use against him.Obama doesn’t have to run against McCain. Obama can leave those details for the media to take care of. McCain though, is running against Obama and the media.
