The race seems to be getting tighter and tighter and tighter as the days tick by as we approach the election. Some are thinking it’s the whole “Joe the Plumber” thing and I’m betting that is spot on.
A regular Joe Blow asks Obama a LEGITIMATE question about his tax plan and how it will affect him. Obama says on camera, “I want to spread the wealth around.” McCain was very, very smart to bring this up in the last debate. It finally puts a real average working persons face and life on Obama’s tax
increase plan and now Americans can see how it will really fuck affect them.
The other side to this is the fact that the mainstream media jumped all over Joe the Plumber by finding out everything and anything about this guys life and airing out for the whole world to see and to try and discredit him. Of course we know more about Joe the Plumber and his history and background than we do about Obama since he won’t release a lot of his own records. Hmmm….
Then on top of that, Obama and Biden criticize the guy out in public rallies and again try and discredit this guy. This is a regular guy who asked a totally fair, legitimate and non-partisan question to Obama’s face. And this is how he gets treated for it.
Americans are NOT digging this. Rightly so.
Our government is by the people and for the people. People should question and have every right to question the government no matter what party it is. This is how the possible future President of the United States wants to treat it’s citizens for questioning their government on how it’s policies will affect them. Crap all over them and smear them. Nice.
I seriously like Obama and Biden less and less every. single. day. I really despise John Kerry and these two are really falling into that category with me.
