(Toledo Blade)   Joe the Plumber's campaign tactics include long periods of silence broken only by "I hate politics" and "politics suck." Sounds like he's serious about this Congress thing   (toledoblade.com) divider line 155

"I like government"
-Samuel "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher
 
2012-09-20 11:24:37 AM
Sounds like he's about as legit a politician as he was a "plumber".
 
2012-09-20 11:25:51 AM
With that kind of work ethic, no WONDER he was such a successful businessman!

"I've not made millions of dollars off Joe the Plumber. In fact I've made less money. I've lost a lot of money, and I've sacrificed a great many things to represent a group of people who want their voices heard,"

Who are these people?

"Quite frankly, politics suck, I hate it with a passion. Only reason I'm involved in it is I like history and I like government," said Mr. Wurzelbacher, 38, a resident of Springfield Township.

Good gravy! I had no idea that Palin was contagious!

Wow. And I thought I was white. Dude, step out in the sunlight every now and again. You won't explode. I promise.

if he wins, I'm running for senate. I can't do any worse.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: With that kind of work ethic, no WONDER he was such a successful businessman!


No, no, he didn't start a business because his taxes would have gone up, and he'd actually have made less money!

Joe the Plumber is not a plumber nor is his real name Joe. Discuss amongst yourselves, I'm getting verklempt.

tallguywithglasseson: "I like government"

No joke. Isn't this clown supposed to be running on an anti-government platform? Not that "anti-gov't" Republicans have a great track record with regard to making sense in the last few years....
 
2012-09-20 02:44:47 PM
Never heard of Joe the Plumber. Clicked the link expecting Larry the Cable Guy's estranged twin and I get the guy from Pawn Stars.

He's afraid of the moths that will start bumping into him.
 
2012-09-20 02:47:01 PM
I watched this joker on the tube one day. His pitch was that he wasn't really all that knowledgeable, but that he was a plumber, so he knew how to fix things. And that's what our government needs right now. So we should hope he wins.

I could tell from that logic alone what party he belonged to.
 
2012-09-20 02:48:47 PM
Wait I thought he was making over $250K as a plumber why does he need the job?
 
2012-09-20 02:48:56 PM
That tool is running for congress? Jesus Farking Christ.

THAT"S who he looks like! It was bugging me when I saw the pic.

/I don't know a lot about failed political campaigns, but I got a buddy who's an expert on these things. Let me call him down here and see what he says.

Yeah, the other shoe drops at the end of the article.

What an amateur. Good riddance, your 15 minutes is up.

Because 250K is borderline middleclass. How dare you!

He's paying himself $5000/week, he has $19000 in his coffers, looks like he is going to need some pawning skills soon.

No no, he would have been making that scratch if Obama hadn't farted away all of his work ethic via taxation.

Well I guess the country is going down the tubes, so a plumber would be helpful.

Having lunch:

Don't worry. Marcy Kaptur is the senior ranking female House Rep. She campaigns very well. In fact the main reason idiots vote against her is because she's a Democrat. She's done very well for NW Ohio and I wish the Kasichsuckers hadn't re-drawn me out of her district. Her office was always pleasant to deal with and she was minimal on the rhetoric. The idiot I have now, Bob Latta, went from center-right moderate to derpy Tea Tard to get the moron vote. Not happy about that.

Joe's fame is gone and nobody with half a brain likes him. Plus he stumped for Puppy Mills in Missouri which I make sure to mention all the time. In fact, I'm going to post it right now on Facebook.

Why? Because he's already waxing philosophical for Obama? We should go ahead and leave the derp for the politicians.

Having sex

"Quite frankly, sex sucks. The only reason I do it is because I like grunting and sweating," said Mr. Wurzelbach, 38, a keyperson at a local Springfield Township franchise.

For one thing, he doesn't have a plumber's license.

There you go wanting to keep a small business owner down just because you have this thing called ethics. You should fully support keeping animals in cages no bigger than their body 24/7 without food/water and live in disgusting filth. He just wants to treat us like the dog in the bottom cage and have the golden stuff trickle down to us.

If we just followed his example we all be imaginary business owners making a bazillion dollars and be happy with our station in life.

I know, I'm a CommisocialistNazi0bama lover who wants to stick it to the job creators and allow Welfare Queens to purchase puppies from their food stamp checks. DAMN ME!

if he was forced to speak the truth, that's pretty much it.
 
2012-09-20 03:16:42 PM
He wants to represent people, but he won't talk to them, share his views, or learn what they want. He wants to improve a system he hates, even if it was running smoothly and cleanly.

Yep, this is just the guy you want stepping up in a representative democracy.
