Video: Obama hits McCain over Joe the Plumber

posted at 8:49 pm on October 16, 2008 by Allahpundit

And with this, JTP has officially been name-checked by all four candidates today. The way the video’s cut, picking up mid-sentence, it sounds like Obama’s sneering at Wurzelbacher for being a plumber — “A plumber is the guy he’s fighting for” — to the great amusement of the crowd. The full quote:

Obama said McCain was misleading voters by proposing tax plans that favor the rich while criticizing an Obama tax plan that would raise taxes only on people making more than $250,000 a year, just 5 percent of all taxpayers.

He’s trying to suggest that a plumber is the guy he’s fighting for,” Obama said. “How many plumbers you know that are making a quarter-million dollars a year?”

They’re laughing at McCain for claiming to be a friend of the middle class, not at Wurzelbacher for being middle class. Given the Bittergate fiasco and his image as an elitist, would The One really crap on a profession as quintessentially blue-collar as plumbing in a public setting, especially with the election so close? In context, I’m not even sure that the line about making a quarter mil a year is aimed at Wurzelbacher. I take his point to be not that JTP is lying about aspiring to make that much, but that even if he succeeds, he’d be such an extreme outlier that Maverick can’t fairly use him as a proxy for plumbers (or the middle class) generally.

But judge for yourself. Whatever Obama meant, the AP’s seen to it that the dirt on JTP’s tax lien problem will be beamed out to wire services and reported around the world tomorrow. Note to self: Make sure you’re capable of passing the equivalent of a federal background check before challenging The One on his polices. Click the image to watch.

Update: Team Maverick seizes the moment:

“It’s an outrage that the Obama campaign and the media are attacking Joe the Plumber for asking a legitimate question of a presidential candidate. This is why voters still have so many questions about Barack Obama. Instead of answering tough questions, his campaign attacks average Americans for daring to look at the reality behind his words, said Tucker Bounds, spokesman the McCain-Palin campaign. “John McCain will continue to fight on behalf of all hardworking Americans like Joe for policies geared toward increasing prosperity and reducing the burden on taxpayers — not ‘spreading the wealth around’ for Senator Government to distribute as he sees fit.”

Thank you, Sir.

McCain knows Joe the Plumber has been crucified and he said at the Alfred E. Smith Dinner in NY tonite he has given the plumber a job in all 7 of his houses! Wow!! Sweet Jesus..this is Justice..

gracie on October 16, 2008 at 9:49 PM

Folks, McCain really has a wicked sense of humor. You just have to pay attention. One time his was asked (quite off the record by the way, and he denies it, but I believe its true) why Chelsea Clinton was so damn ugly. Without missing a beat, he responded: because Janet Reno is her father. Now that’s funny right there.

Andy in Agoura Hills on October 16, 2008 at 9:49 PM

This punk must be defeated if he is so distainful of the average American now just imagine what he will do after being elected with majorities in both houses. He is seriously dangerous.

This is exactly what Ayn Rand accused the left of creating when they have to avoid a debate, and that’s an “anti-concept.” Let’s go get Joe the Plumber so we don’t have to debate wealth redistribution and socialism.

The McCain joke I loved was “It going to be a long night over at MSNBC if I pull this off.”

I’m looking forward to watching that. I wonder how many times the word “racist” will be used to describe the American electorate? I don’t think I can do the drinking game with this one; too much risk of alcohol poisoning.

BS, the arrogant SOB thinks we’re all a bunch of hayseeds that he’s going to dispatch on 5 Nov. I do not care what you say, that weasel has nothing but contempt for an average guy like Joe who dares ask him a question, the military or really anyone not ready to toe the Obama line.

Sorry if this thought is a repeat – if Obama increases taxes on only the top 5% of small businesses, he will be increasing taxes on 90% of the small businesses that EMPLOY OTHER PEOPLE!

I’m not at all surprised that McCain has a great sense of humor, and comic timing. I am shocked that no one in the Obama campaign had the wit to tell him that he doesn’t, and that doing this event was a bad idea.

Someone said it was on Hannity and Colmes? I may have to wait up for the replay post-midnight… then again, it’ll probably be on youtube tomorrow… for a few seconds before the moonbats get it pulled…

[Obama is] Quite a smug, elitist Prick for such a Stuttering Stooge. Now all of The Stuttering Stooge’s little fascist minions are digging into Joe’s personal…..

It’s time for some smart entrepeneur to print up a bunch of “I AM Joe the Plumber” T-shirts, hats, bags, lunchboxes, … you name it, put them up for sale on the internet and commit to donating a sizeable portion of the profits to Joe and his family. Just imagine the smoke blowing out of the Obamabots ears whenever they turn around on the streets of America only to be confronted with the symbol of The Stuttering Stooge’s epic failure.

A man of towering intellect and rapier sharp wit who can lay pipe like nobody’s business. Coming to theatres nationwide is the masterpiece promised by Jerry Zucker, the producer of Airplane and An American Carol

Terrye on October 16, 2008 at 10:28 PM

Somebody PLEASE call him out on this BS 250K limit. Obama is planning to do away with the social security cap right? So basically, any individual making over roughly 100k is gonna get a 6.8% tax hike from good ole Barry.

Now on the other end, if you are a couple making $50k or so and have a couple kids, chances are you aren’t paying any federal tax. So “Obama Hood and his merry band of Thug Thizzlers” are going to give money to people who pay no tax as it is.

Pathetic. This needs to be called out.

They’re laughing at McCain for claiming to be a friend of the middle class, not at Wurzelbacher for being middle class.

I’m sure it’s been mentioned already, but BHO is making fun of both Joe Wuzelbacher and McCain. He’s making fun of Joe for even imagining that he could ever make anything around $250,000 (though BHO said $200,000 in the last debate) and he’s laughing at McCain for implying that Joe could.

Joe W. apparently is now to be destroyed for the sin of questioning Obama’s messiahship. I want to know how much this will cost him and contribute to his cause.

flataffect on October 16, 2008 at 11:11 PM

What Obama and his supporters are really mocking is the idea that a middle class fellow can ever hope to make good. They see no connection or affinity between a plumber and a person who makes $250,000 a year.

They can not conceive of the American Dream as being reality, and that is why they are so dangerous. They will kill the American Dream without ever realizing that they have done so, because in their mind the American Dream is just a fantasy made up by conservatives to trick the middle class into voting for them.

Borislav on October 16, 2008 at 11:43 PM

Sen. Obama is wrong to think that a plumber who owns a company employing multiple plumbers couldn’t reasonably expect to clear $250K annually. The company that trenched out my basement and front yard replacing every damn sewer pipe after the Great Sewage Disaster of ’07 charged a pretty penny for the job. They had as many as 5 guys working on the site at a time and that was just a portion of the people they employed. If the company Joe W. is hoping to buy does heavy commercial work or has a couple of contracts for maintaining a few apartment complexes, it could easily be more. Just the equipment alone is expensive and keeping up the assets, parts, etc. could make the company’s net worth rather large.

Sen. Obama hasn’t let his guard down often to make mistakes, I hope this illuminating episode proves to be a real pivot point in the election.

Jill1066 on October 16, 2008 at 11:47 PM

This is just an attempt to continue the lie that hard-working middle income Americans don’t vote or think like Republicans. The idea is to say “he’s not a plumber… he’s not one of you… he’s one of those people”.

Remember the EU hoopla over Obama? Turns out they have a reason for that.

The EU 27’s hopes for forcing the United States to dance to their tune rest on the elegantly tailored figure of Barack Obama. That’s why Brown wants to hold his big international conference after the November elections, and invite the president-elect.

They are already wetting their chops for getting such a gift in Barack Obama.

promachus on October 17, 2008 at 2:03 AM

*knock on wood*

If anything’s going to stick to Barry, this will.

He showed his true colors with Joe the Plumber, and now his comeback is to laugh at the fact that the guy’s “just” a plumber.

His point may not be that, and intentions yadda yadda, but sound bytes are sound bytes, and this is Barry at his most genuine, elitist self.

Rush posed the question today: How many Joe the Plumbers are out there? Answer: All of us.

Barry’s thumbing his nose at all of us from his elitist perch.

Good luck with that, buddy.

Hawkins1701 on October 17, 2008 at 2:10 AM

“He’s trying to suggest that a plumber is the guy he’s fighting for,” Obama said. “How many plumbers you know that are making a quarter-million dollars a year?”

Well, O’Bambi, YOU’RE certainly not going to fight for Joe the Plumber. And if you have your way, no one but the Lib elite will earn over $50 bucks a week.

Amazing what the media finds in twenty four hours about some previously unknown guy who dared to receive the actual truth about the Obamanation accidentally, yet in twenty months the same media can’t find the motivation to make one trip to Chicago to dig up the truth about the ONE.

eaglewingz08 on October 17, 2008 at 8:58 AM

So, the enemy has become not liberals per say, but the main stream media. They are a hard enemy to fight unless the right fines a way to buy up large newspapers and control TV stations etc. But, what goes up, comes down and when the MSM falls it will be nothing short of cataclysmic! I hope I’m around to see it. Kind of ironic in a way–in this country we didn’t need a dictator like Stalin etc to direct and limit the media to one side of an ideology, they did it all by themselves!

brtex on October 17, 2008 at 9:46 AM

Obama has obviously never heard the joke about the lawyer and the plumber.

The lawyer called the plumber because his toilet was stopped and didn’t know what to do.

The plumber came over and after inspecting the tolilet, he reached in and pulled a child’s toy out of the bowl trap. The plumber flushed the toilet and said “There you go, good as new.”
The lawyer said “Hey, thanks a lot, how much do I owe you?”
The plumber says “200 dollars”
The lawyer gets huffy and says “Good lord, You have only been here 15 minutes and you are charging me 200 dollars. That’s more money than I make an hour!”

The plumber says “Yeah, I used to be a lawyer too.”

Heh!

Man demands state verify birth records or remove senator from ballots

Note: It is incumbent on ALL Secretaries of State in all of the United States to BOTH accurately verify Voters AND candidates. Barack Hussein Obama has sealed his “Hawaiian” birth records and also records in Kenya.

Failure to verify and certify qualification for ALL candidates in a general election by any Secretary of State may be a cause of action (dereliction of duty) and criminal charges may be filed.
