Joe the Plumber: McCain screwed up my life

Joe the Plumber is no longer a fan of either Sarah Palin or John McCain, it seems. Joe, also known as Sam Wurzelbacher, told an audience in Pennsylvania this week that McCain "is no public servant."

"McCain was trying to use me," Wurzelbacher said, according to public radio correspondent Scott Detrow. "I happened to be the face of middle Americans. It was a ploy.”

Hmmm....really? We told you that like a year & a half ago.

No votes yet

'Why is this guy's 15 mins of fame clock still running? Why doesn't he just go away? McCain was the worst candidate, and his whole campaign was a joke, topped off with the nomination of the biggest joke, Sarah Palin!. Then McCain makes up this 'joe sixpack' character of Joe the Plumber who's name isn't even Joe, and his story was a bunch of lies! If this idiot 'Joe' believes McCain ruined his life by putting him out there in public, then why is he still seeking the limelight? He was a fraud during the campaign and he's still a fraud. Go home 'Joe'. We've heard too much from you already.'

Yup. About covers it.

Although you'd think he'd at least thank McCain for getting him that Fox News 'foreign correspondent' job...Mr. Middle East expert. What a scream. Unlicensed plumbers don't typically get to make that leap on their own. And don't forget that book deal, Sam!!

Has Joe started campaigning against Marcy? You two birds aren't going to like seeing her get the boot, are you? Think "tea party", and bye-bye.

Should be fun watching Iott and Smith trying to out tea bag eachother for the right to loose to Marcy.

While I would love to see Marcy lose I do believe she has proven to have nine lives.

The coming Red Tsunami will take a lot of Dems out to sea but Marcy WILL NOT be one of them. The only way she will be replaced will be if she retires. maybe Konop knows something we don't since he won't seek reelection as commissioner But while most of Lucas County has some astute individuals the city of Toledo is the black hole of intelligence and I don't think there's enough people in the rest of her district to take her out. Maybe after another the 2010 redistricting.

The GOP shouldn't waste money to just get close to Kaptur. It should spend money in the districts where the Tea Party has gained significant ground.

Plus they can't beat her as long as Stain is in the chairmanship because he and her are both JR's buddies and JR won't allow it.


People aren't voting pro Tea Bagger/Republican as much as they are voting against those in power.

Seriously, what do Republicans and Tea Bagger and their purity tests even stand for? They have no interest in governing, all they want to do is fight.

Sure, they can try to lower taxes, but like Bush they won't have any way to pay for them. They won't cut defense, they'll still want their pork.

Keep believing that. Every poll conducted after every statewide election has shown the economy/jobs/and Obama's policies to be the reason people have voted the way they have. The Tea Party is the most energized voters out there.

It's true for Republicans too. I suppose you'll tell me Mark Rubio winning will be because Christ was in power? Wrong. It's because of Christ's support on the stimulus and the polls reflect that.

While you live in a dream world we will take back Congress. My hope is you keep believing the b.s. you are spewing right through the 2012 election too.


Iott and Smith obviously each want to win the primary, but collectively they are for getting Marcy out. "Fraid you wont have any fun watching the teabagging by Smith and Iott LOL...sorry.

Tom Henry's Blade artice 'Kaptur alarmed at lack of action over Asian carp' is a microcosm of whats wrong with Karptur and other Progressives who have been in way too long and legislate from their ivory towers of nonreality and irrelavancy. The best quote:" Marcy Karptur said she was amazed at how much the issue remains mired in bureaucracy..." LOL Think she realizes SHE is the bureaucracy..haha? Brian Wilson talks about it on WSPD..suddenly..after SEVENTEEN years of the carp problem, Marcy's trying to do something. That is an out of touch professional politician. Her district has the greatest amount of Lake Erie shoreline. Guess she was too busy meeting and talking with her nonconstituents like Bill Maher and Michael Moore.

She has plenty of time to fly to NYC and appear with America Haters Bill Maher and Michael Moore, but no time to have face to face town halls or even appear in an open forum...will be telling to see if she agrees to debate Iott or Smith. Or even just appear in person and give her issues platforms and take questions? Guess she's forgotten SHE works for US. WE pay her PAYCHECK.
