Treacher has a good reminder: the media furor over Joe the Plumber isn't about Joe the Plumber. It's about making people forget that Barack Obama said this:
"It's not that I want to punish your success. I want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance for success, too. 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."
In the eyes of the media, if destroying Joe is what it takes to get Obama elected, then so be it.
Broken eggs and omelets. By any means necessary. That's the Obama way.
I agree with this:
It's been said many times (so I'll say it again, cause I'm just a moron), most Americans are fair-minded people. They know when someone who doesn't deserve it is viciously attacked by a media bent on defending The Precious from his own big dumb mouth. And they don't like it a lot.
Bob Owens with some related hope about how Americans tend to vote.
We will never elect a candidate who was friends with a racist like David Duke, or who belonged to a White Power cult. Likewise, we aren't going to elect President a man who spent more than 20 years in a racist cult that believes God must either be "black" or killed as Barack Obama has attended under the twisted tutelage of Jeremiah "Goddamn America!" Wright.
We will never elect a candidate who was friends with a Timothy McVeigh, a Mohamed Atta, or Ted Kaczynski. Likewise, we will never elect a candidate who started his political life campaigning in the home of two known terrorists (Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers) made infamous by their murderous war against our nation. Nor will we accept that he did indeed "pal around" with these terrorists and other communist/socialist radicals for at least 21 years, funneling them grant money and sharing office space with them, and having them babysit his children as they seek to undermine our way of life and indoctrinate our kids.
He is right in that the American people would not knowingly vote for a person of such extreme views.
Which is exactly why the media and the Obama camp are doing their hardest to keep the public from knowing about Obama's past..
Even Biden's not so sure on Obama's competence.
