Joe the Plumber for Congress?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I know we are all just sick to death of this guy, but now he claims he wants to run for Congress.

His motives get more and more suspect by the minute.

He was approached Z, he didn't seek it out.

Can't be any more suspect than the 535 turds that are already members of Congress.

So how would that make him any different than Obama? Politician is just a fancy word for con man.

So what?? He's in the limelight, though not of his own doing. Heck we already know his dirty laundry, and it's a lot less than 99% of the members of Congress or those seeking the office. He's a household name already, which is something most politicians would kill for. His plumbing career is over, the press has seen to that already. Why shouldn't he run for public office? Why shouldn't he pursue whatever career he wants? Isn't that the American Dream? Why shouldn't he go for it? Because he dared to ask Obama a question that made Obama show his true self?

And frankly, he talks more intelligently about politics and policy than most politicians do currently, including both of the men running for President, and HE doesn't have a speech writer!

Nope, not of his own doing at all. McCain put him there.

He has every right to run for office if he wants to. As far as him making Obama show his true self, IMO Obama was already clear about his plan.

Funny that Obama's plan wouldn't have affected him anyway.

Even if he did buy Newell Plumbing and Heating, Obama’s tax plan wouldn’t affect him. While Wurzelbacher told Obama that he would be taxed at a higher rate because the company grossed more than $250,000 a year, Ohio business records show the company’s estimated total annual revenue as only $100,000. Actual taxable income would be even less than that.
Misleading the public? Maybe he would be a good politician.

I meant the "Spreading the wealth" comment, not the plan.

I suppose none of you guys have had an idea or a dream of making something better than it is today? Maybe Joe was thinking ahead, and dreaming a bit, about what the future could hold for the plumbing business. Or maybe he didn't really know how much the gross profits were for that business. I don't know how much my company makes, gross, but I have an inkling of an idea of how much we net. Maybe that's what he originally based his comments on.

Disagree with him and his views, that's fine. But why must you tear him down to a "con-man" and "liar"? Is this what we're in for if Obama wins? Your patriotism won't be questioned, but you'll be a liar and con-man if you don't support Obama?

I agree, Heidi.

God forbid anyone jsut ask a simple question without some ulterior motive.

And we won't be here on TCS talking about anyone else if we end up in the nanny state with BHO's media lockdown plans.

To give him the benefit of the doubt, I agree it is possible that he meant "what if the business made over $250,000." You're right - we should take it that way. I really have nothing against him.
