"Joe The Plumber" Working the Crowd

McCain & Palin No Longer His BFFs.

Wurzelbacher also told the room to lay off the extreme personal attacks on President Obama. He said people who question whether Obama was born in the United States or compare him to Hitler “belittle and set back” the conservative movement. “The birthers, the truthers — if people are trying to bunch them [with tea partiers], that would kill us. That just pushes away Democrats and independents who might come out for our cause otherwise.” He said he actually likes Obama, in some ways. “I think his ideology is un-American, but he’s one of the more honest politicians. At least he told us what he wanted to do.”

That might have been a compliment?

I assume it would be pointless to ask Joe to expand on what he considers ‘un-American.’ But unfortunately I can imagine. Joe otherwise needs to take his own advise.

These uneducated trash fools will do anything, say anything to earn a buck or to get into the spot light.

I'm sorry that you feel you're so much better than the "average Joe" that this person represents.

Allow me to enlighten you on something, though...he's not doing this to earn a buck, it was asked of him by other candidates as well...

Joe’s endorsement is apparently quite the coup. He says more than 200 politicians have asked for support this year, but so far, he’s only backed five.

I'm not a real dickhead...but I acted like one in high school.

Well.
I've read belittling of many, but the next election will tell the story.
There are 3 Palin references on the first page of OT. Scared!! Some folks should be scared.

Personally I can't think of more than 3 in the entire senate I see in office with what appears to be ethics. It's not one party or the other, they have both been corrupted.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist or brain surgeon to realize this. Thus folks are fed up.
Fed up with runaway spending and an economy we will be sticking our grandchildren with. Fed up with bad policy. Fed up with sooo much, Period!!
It's not a Dem or Rep issue. Both are corrupted. Those tea party folks so many are concerned with are Indy in mindset, wether they are registered one way or the other..or not.
I called for a prayer for this country. It should be non offensive to all.
The prayer was simple. Pray for exposure. Exposure for good or bad. Pray that those who are doing good will be held up, and those who aren't to be removed. Not just in political offices but also in the financial institutions and in business. Jailed if they break laws. A prayer for exposure of moral character or lack thereof...... For good or bad.
Let God sort em out and let us be made aware, so we can vote em in or out, and do business with the good companies as compared to the bad. Exposure is what I pray for.
I call for this prayer to be a daily thing and continuance.
Is this happening? You decide.

If this prayer offends you, examine yourself.

Well, he makes sense admonishing birthers, tea baggers, and other rightist extremists to stop acting like ignorant racists and be more inclusive, possibly attracting some weak Democrats and Independents. Then he turns around and calls the president ‘un-American,’ which is not consistent with his message.

To the theological question first, How do you know that god didn't already sort them out and this is what we have?

To the subject however, you suggest that baggers are both left and right, get real. There are not folks on the left lining up with the teabagger movement. It is just not happening on any level. That is wishful thinking.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

McBear, if you think they are right wing, you yourself are far left.
They are about as center as it gets.

How do I know God (not god) didn't already sort em out? I don't know Gods plan in short term. (long term is in print)
I just pray he reveals and executes it. I'm totally fine with a Just God making the call.
All I'm asking for is exposure, good or bad.
Again, Is it happening? You decide!

That may be your wish and perception, but it is not a fact.

You do know that a plumber will earn 8 to 10 times more than a researcher...but he works with his hands, not his mind. He is so unworthy.
