(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

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?

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

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.

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.

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.

Don't have any numbers on hand but he's running in a solid blue district against an incumbent who's held the seat for almost 30 years.

So he never had a chance from the start and this is just a desperate last-ditch effort for him to squeeze out any remaining seconds from his 15 minutes, which expired over 3 years ago.

Lucas County Republicans probably recruited him to run. He should have known from the start that this was an uphill battle, with the hill being the size of K2. He's from Holland, Oh for the love of Tyr, so he should have known he would get little support and have little chance. Then again, this genius probably thought that he could ride the 2010 Tea Tard wave into power. The puppy mill smells must have impacted his ability to think.

Heh. I have no idea why this guy even considered going up against Kaptur, one of the longest serving members of Congress. The Democrats have been in power here for well over 30 years and regardless if times are good or bad they vote Democrat. It's a very weird district. They vote against equal marriage and for Obama. Today I had lunch at Tony Packo's and overheard three "N-word" jokes and one spic joke from Democrats.

sweetmelissa31: "I'm not talking about defending illegal immigrants as her party has done time and time again. I think I'm very much on the record as wanting to protect America and America's interests. All of your sanctuary cities are liberally controlled, Democratically controlled. Is she working on the interests of Americans or illegal immigrants?" Mr. Wurzelbacher said.

Fact: No Mexican person has ever stepped foot in Ohio.


Fun Fact: Toledo's Latino population is not that big. However the GOP voting rural areas employee migrant workers from Texas by the hundreds, many of whom were quite possibly illegal. Funny how that works.

Comparing this imbecile to G. Gordon Liddy is pretty apt: a weirdo who's hubris matches his baldness. Nixon looks competent and able compared to these clowns.

OregonVet: Heh. I have no idea why this guy even considered going up against Kaptur, one of the longest serving members of Congress. The Democrats have been in power here for well over 30 years and regardless if times are good or bad they vote Democrat. It's a very weird district. They vote against equal marriage and for Obama. Today I had lunch at Tony Packo's and overheard three "N-word" jokes and one spic joke from Democrats. Hell, back when the primaries were winding down last time they were literally wringing their hands over having to chose between a woman and a negro. Weird place is the 9th Ohio district.


9 is a blue collar working class Democrat district, that's why. We're blue to the core in just about every way. I agree, it is kinda weird but once you know your neighbors, its easy.

More than 170 years ago, the French political thinker and writer, Alexis de Tocqueville saw this coming, and warned of its dangers in his most famous writing, Democracy in America. Here is an excerpt :

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship."

Our public treasury cannot sustain further "largesse." Our national debt has ballooned to more than $16 trillion. The top 25 percent of wage earners contribute 87 percent of all tax revenue and it is numerically impossible to tax them sufficiently to pay for this expansion of federal government - let alone pay down our debt.

Seconded. Market Socialism FTW.


publikenemy: Seriously, wtf is wrong with you all? Most here seem well educated so I just don't understand it.


You don't understand it because you don't actually consider the arguments being made, you just assume that any policy you deem socialist is stupid, was invented by stupid people, and couldn't possibly work.


publikenemy: You are for socialism in America?


Are you under the impression that we have no socialism? Every country in the world is socialist to some degree. Any social program that is run with money collected from taxpayers can be considered socialist -- public schools, the Postal Service, National Parks, the Military (including the DoD and Veterans benefits), Social Security and Medicare for old people who can't work anymore... and those are just a few.


publikenemy: It doesn't work! Have we not learned from numerous examples?


Yes, like Sweden, which has very low crime, highly educated (free college), high life expectancy (universal health care), and a high quality of living?
Most of Northern Europe does, actually, and they're all under a Market Socialist system. And you're telling me that it doesn't work? LOL. The when you can sound reasonable with just some wharrgarbl over Mao's China, or the USSR as examples of Evil Socialism are long past. We have examples of highly socialist countries that work extremely well.


publikenemy: Obama has undeniably stated that he if for redistribution. Is this what you want? Honest question.


We already have redistribution. It's called taxes. Practically every nation in the world has them (excepting places like Somalia), and so have we since the inception of our country.

And yes, that is what I want. When everyone contributes to common goals we can accomplish things that we cannot do as a collection of individuals who are out for ourselves. I don't need to hoard everything for myself, I'm not a selfish bastard. I am happy to give when I have plenty in case there comes a day when I don't.


publikenemy: Why would you want a socialist country? Seriously, why?


Because it ensures that you have certain necessities, even if you fall on hard times. It is more equitable. It raises up the whole of society (if maybe not as high as the 1% here), instead of stratefying the upper and lower class by design.


publikenemy: Wow..I'm done. You are so incredibly stupid that I can't wrap my head around it. Go ahead, have your socialism and get back to me in 10 years. I weep for the death of America as I have known it.


LOL. I guess when you don't have facts or arguments you can always just facepalm and make fun of the other guy to make yourself sound superior. If the "America as you have known it" is the America where business owners can get rich by risking everyone's financial well-being and giving irresponsible loans, or shipping everyone's jobs to India and China, then I welcome it.

Your sort exalts Capitalism as a religion, refusing to acknowledge that it has inevitable pitfalls that any responsible government NEEDS to fix. Capitalism is a force of human nature, not a type of government. It needs to be reigned in, harnessed, and directed, so that it doesn't trample the people who depend on it.

publikenemy: Just answer me one question..how did that stimulus package work? We were promised..PROMISED! An under 6% unemployment rate.."if we just pass this bill now!".. How'd that little slice of socialism work out for you eh? We are still well over 8% and our debt is ridiculous...anyone? I'm waiting, but there is no way to defend it, so I'm sure I'll just get the standard "you are a racist" card


No, the answer is that it DID work. 6% was optimistic, to be sure, but it has created jobs and unemployment would have been worse without it.
The market is back up, and although we're not back to rolling in the dough, to write it off as completely ineffective is to woefully underestimate the severity of the recession we could have had. With banks failing, some of our largest manufacturing businesses staring at bankruptcy, and tons of jobless people with upside-down home loans (and therefore no disposable income), it is a wonder we're doing as well as we are.

Conservatives want to try and cut the deficit by cutting the sort of programs that were instituted in the stimulus in order to "balance the budget", but this ignores one of the basic tenets of business: You have to spend money to make money. The country is not run on a household budget. Our GDP is tied to the money we spend, unlike your common household which has the same income no matter how much they spend on food or frivolities. We need to use money to stimulate job creation, so that people will not only make more money that they can spend to bring the economy back up to speed, but we can once again start manufacturing useful things that other countries might want, thus decreasing our huge trade deficit. Tightening our belts more and more just isn't going to work.

Well, at least 50% of the country are ill-informed morons too, so that's just about as expected.

Corporations are holding onto their money as never before due to the hostile business environment. Link

You don't think we say the EXACT same thing about you? It's just a fundamental difference..a divide that will never be bridged IMO. I am definitely socially liberal, but fiscally I happen to be of the opinion that we are royally farking up. The left has painted a conservative as an absolute..conservative about anything and everything, and that's just not so with most. It's playground politics at its worst, and it's working for the left...a dissenting voice?..racist. Hey, it works. Obama has divided this country like never before...honestly, I have never seen this country at odds with each other as much as today, and it's sickening.

Yes, it's the left painting the right as a bunch of reactionaries on social issues. Let's go with that.

A candidate who tells the truth,

No wonder you Lefty Libs hate him.

He's PERFECT for the job.
