The Media and Obama’s Campaign Attack “Joe the Plumber” While McCain Defends Him

October 17, 2008

  Ever since “Joe the plumber” had the audacity (of hope) to actually ask Barack Obama a tough question, and especially since the debate, the media and the Obama campaign have tried to discredit him. This is just a man whose door Barack Obama knocked on to ask for his vote, he is not affiliated with any campaign, yet this “average Joe” now must be put through the ringer and why? Because he was stupid enough to question Barack Obama.

 Barack Obama is adverse to not only answering questions, but to even having them asked of him. He didn’t see the question coming so he wasn’t able to silence Joe the plumber. It is time for Plan B, discredit an average American who dared to ask the Anointed One a question.

 Barack Obama has a long history of trying to silence those who disagree with him, I am not going to list them again. Just search my blog and you will find them. But this one may be more troubling than any other to me. Barack Obama’s campaign and his willing accomplices in the media are going after not a talk show host, or a blogger, or a television station who speaks ill of him, but an average, everyday, typical American.

 Such is the future of America under a Barack Obama administration. Question dear leader and suffer the consequences. Joe is the perfect example of this. One day he is minding his own business and the next he questions Obama and the interrogators swarm in on him. The thought police will discredit him, they will smear him, and most importantly to the opposition party in a Stalinist regime, the will silence him.

 The sad part here is that rather than trying to justify his position on taxes Barack Obama will try to bring down the man who exposed his position. Even if the person is one of us, the unwashed masses. How dare a typical American dare question the enlightened Obama. He must kneel before Zod. He must kiss the ring and ask for forgiveness.

 Meanwhile John McCain has come to the aid of “Joe the plumber.”

Last weekend, Senator Obama showed up in Joe’s driveway to ask for his vote, and Joe asked Senator Obama a tough question. I’m glad he did; I think Senator Obama could use a few more tough questions.The response from Senator Obama and his campaign yesterday was to attack Joe. People are digging through his personal life and he has TV crews camped out in front of his house. He didn’t ask for Senator Obama to come to his house. He wasn’t recruited or prompted by our campaign. He just asked a question. And Americans ought to be able to ask Senator Obama tough questions without being smeared and targeted with political attacks. 
  But Barack Obama just doesn’t agree with McCain. To use a line that Obama used over and over during the debates, Obama and McCain have a fundamental difference on this issue. McCain thinks that Americans should be heard, while Obama believes that only Americans who support him should be heard.

  But McCain had a lime in his speech that really hit the nail on the head about Obama’s tax plan, which is what good ole Joe the plumber dared to ask Stalin Obama about. Here it is:

his plan gives away your tax dollars to those who don’t pay taxes.
That’s not a tax cut, that’s welfare. America didn’t become the greatest nation on earth by redistributing wealth; we became the greatest nation by creating new wealth.
 
 Only roughly 67% of Americans pay taxes yet Obama claims that his plan gives a tax break to 95% of Americans, that means that my money and yours goes to people who don’t even pay taxes and probably live off of the government. McCain is right, it is welfare. But this post isn’t supposed to be about  socialistic tax policy, it is supposed to be about his Stalinist view of free speech.

 Barack Obama is afraid that the truth about him will leak out before the election, as long as he can hide who he really is he will win this election. But I am here to tell you that this man MUST BE STOPPED! His views on free speech and the media are scary. He is willing to silence the opposition and when that is not possible he is ready and willing to attack the opposition. Even if the opposition is just an average American who is concerned about the future of the country. Even if the person in question was simply sitting at home minding his own business when a knock at the door presented him with the opportunity to ask of a presidential candidate something that was on his mind.  Barack Obama assumed that a mere mortal who answered the door to find a god staring back at him would be too starstruck to ask a poignant question and his miscalculation embarrassed him. Now he must destroy someone whose only crime was trying to achieve the American dream. But to Obama the American dream is something that he doesn’t want everyday Americans to achieve, he would rather that they suckle at the teat of big government. People who achieve success without government intervention are a problem to a far left liberal like Obama who want everyone dependent on the government. Those who think for themselves must be silenced according to Obama.

 While this has happened to “Joe the plumber” it could happen to “Steve the electrician” or “Lauri the nurse” or even “Andy the dishwasher” if Obama becomes president. He has shown a lack of respect for the constitution and it’s right to free speech and the media is in his back pocket and are furthering his smear campaign on average Joe. This cannot be tolerated.

 While John McCain has spent his life serving, defending, and protecting the United States, Barack Obama has spent his life hanging around with racist, hate-mongering, America hating “reverends” and Pentagon bombing, America hating, terrorists.

 If his past is any indication of how he will govern than we had better fall in line with Obama or we will also be silenced. Once debate is silenced the country will be lost.

 This election is about more than just “change”, it is about the type of change that Barack Obama will bring.
