Another “Joe the plumber” openly worries about an Obama presidency

Posted by: ST on October 17, 2008 at 8:33 pm

Will Joe Shanks from Knoxville be the next anti-Obama plumber to have his tax records combed with a fine-toothed comb? :-?

On second thought, probably not. After all, this Joe the plumber is not in a swing state that matters.

Related: The anti-Gov. Palin Anchorage Daily News injects all kinds of insinuations about the original JTP in this article, which notes that he lived for a time in Alaska and – horror of horrors – the son he was playing football with when Senator Obama came a callin’ was born in Alaska. I see they continue their despicable digging into this man’s “history.”

If they’d done this much research on Barack Obama’s relationships with Bill Ayers, Rev. Wright, Rashid Khalidi, and other radical leftists, Obama wouldn’t have even come close to winning the nomination. In fact, he’d have probably dropped out before the primaries even got started.

That’s our MSM for you: Hard at work giving you only the information they think you should know.

    I wish if everyone would get off this balogney Obama economic plan. Is there anyone in their right mind that actually believes he will really institute this plan? Is there anyone in their right mind who actually believes that a liberal democrat will not raise as many taxes as possible to pay for their programs for the poor?

    What few people have caught onto so far is Obama’s promise to grow the economy from the bottom up. Look at ACORN, they choose their labor force from the bottom and look where it got them… registering people from the phone book, obituary section and sports pages. So this is who we will trust to grow our economy; crackheads, felons, alcoholics and the mentally challenged, not to mention the many, many morally challenged?

  3. What do you think is an appropriate amount…I’m thinking a hundred grand.

    After Obama wins, we go ahead and “spread the wealth around” but we establish a strict “You Go First” policy for liberal politicians to spread their wealth around first. If their net worth is over a hundred grand, they start spreadin’ and keep spreading until it’s down to that magic number. Starting with Barry O.

    So they can convince us they’re really serious about this, and like all great leaders, not asking their underlings to do anything they themselves wouldn’t want to do.

    IMHO, the best comment on the MSM that any politician has made:

    Yes, why won’t the MSM look into these relationships with Obama and these radicals? Our media today is so liberal–and so are all the celebrities on tv and movies brainwashing the public. Everywhere you look on tv, you are bombarded with these illuminati thoughts, view points, and opinions! It’s so one-sided!
