Joe the non-Plumber now has a publicist, and is trolling for a book deal and a country music recording contract. He's scamming everyone. LOL

How are the Republicans fools for "parading" him? The man is one of the main reasons McCain's campaign is still alive and kicking and polling better than Obama on who people trust to handle the economy. Is Joe really scamming everyone or taking advantage of the opportunity he's been presented. Joe's not a stupid man. Not everyone is comfortable at talking about how dangerous they find Obama to be. I don't trust Obama to defend Israel for crap. But I wouldn't go into details into why on live television.

Seriously. He's William Hung of the political world. $10 bucks says he'll be on a reality TV show within the year.

Yes the same ones that have been completely unreliable through the primaries. The same pollsters who predicted a Gore and Kerry win in 2000 and 2004 respectively. The campaigns have internal polls as well that they don't share with the public. I wouldn't assume this is in the bag. You can put all the little vomiting icons you want, but I don't see Obama winning. A lot can happen in less than a week, but it looks like McCain will pull this off. And in 4 years we'll see how primed Palin will be for 2012 or 2016. That will be interesting, a Sarah-Hillary showdown.

I think its ludicrous that you're attempting to use the farce 2000 election as an example to support anything other than the GOP's deceitful and disgusting methods of winning elections.
In reference to the bolded: http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/
Where does that indicate that McCain will be pulling this off?
And btw- Hillary would tear Palin apart.

CCC, I do believe you have had a sip of the kool-aid.

How can you possibly think that parading around a guy who is a complete farce does not make their campaign look foolish?

To Answer Roquinne's questions.

he lied about being a plumber??
Of course he's a plumber, he works for a plumbing company and under his boss's certification while he completes his apprenticeship and paperwork. He will soon have his license but of course not finishing plumbing school is more important than Obama's answer to his question. Shoot the messenger.
Check the OCILB requirements on qualifications.

he's been exposed as a tax cheat???
He's not a tax cheat because he owes some back taxes that he was unaware that he owed. It's $1,200 give it a break. Even John Kohlstrand a spokesman for the Ohio Department of Taxation said that taxpayers can often be unaware of such tax liens. But hey this is what happens when you question the Messiah, the MSM and State bureaucrats dig through your business and try to slander your name for challenging "the One".

take your pick...
Take your pick of...what. Is that it? Pretty lame. It's disturbing that so much time and energy is spent on a plumber but little to none on Obama's political paradigm, his downright creepy associations and lackluster record.

that isn't the kind of person i'd want representing me in any way.
We are well aware of who you want representation from. But I don't want Obama anywhere near the White House.

so, yes... fools.
I think you have already indicated who the foolish person is. And it's not Joe Schmoe.

Oh and the Democrats never cheat in elections ever. Give me a break. Gore is the reason why Gore lost. Everyone focuses on Florida but Florida would have been a non-issue if he won his own damn state. How does a VP, Tennessee Senator and Congressman whose father was also a Tennessee Congressman lose his own state? Name one person elected President who has lost his own state! Gore made lots and I mean lots of bad decisions in 2000, botched recount included, but I'm not going to run through them on this thread. I was somewhat disheartened when he lost. But he lost. It's over. Get over it.

Well, there's plenty of evidence the Republican party is trying similar tactics of election fraud. Maybe they're expecting that to help them win this time, too.

And as for losing one's own state, maybe the McCain campaign should be paying closer attention to his own state, then.

From Reuters:

Quote:
Polls in recent days suggest that John McCain’s lead over Democratic rival Barack Obama may be slipping in the Republican’s home state of Arizona, with one released late on Tuesday indicating that the race is now too close to call.

With less than a week to go until the Nov. 4 election, the poll by Arizona State University showed McCain leading Obama 46 points to 44, a slender advantage that was within the three-point margin of error.
Just sayin'...

Unlike some other states, Ohio does not have a formal statewide licensing system for plumbers. But the city of Toledo and other municipalities do, Mr. Joseph said, and Mr. Wurzelbacher has not met those requirements.

“All contractors are licensed, and he does not have a license, either as a contractor or a plumber,” the union official said, citing a search of government records. “I can’t find that he’s ever even applied for any kind of apprenticeship, and he has never belonged to local 189 in Columbus, which is what he claims on his Facebook page.”

(Mr. Joseph is Thomas Joseph, head of the union local for plumbers in Toledo, where Mr. Wurzelbacher lives.)

you're REALLY gullible

I know I'm getting bored of "Joe the Plumber." I thought it was lame when he was introduced in the debates...and then after hearing about him, I thought it was unwise to keep bringing him up.
However, with that said, there are people who are listening to this and are starting to go towards McCain's side. They think Obama is a socialist and will take away their money.

So, although I think it's lame, others don't quite see it so. I just can't wait for next Tuesday to be over with...I'm so sick of it all!

CCC,

You always seem so angry when speaking against Obama. Maybe you should lay off the politics.... or not. I mean, it's your life

I can't wait until Nov. 4th... I think I'm gonna throw a watch party!
