Joe “the Plumber” Wurzelbacher first entered the national conscious back in 2007 when he shook hands on an Ohio street with then Senator Barack Obama. It was during their brief interaction when Obama had one of his bigger gaffes of the campaign (not that it ended up hurting him). After being told by Joe “the Plumber” that Obama’s economic plans would hurt his business, Obama responded in true socialist dictatorial fashion…
“It’s not that I want to punish your success, I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they’ve got a chance at success too,” Obama told the plumber.
“My attitude is that if the economy’s good for folks from the bottom up, it’s going be good for everybody. If you’ve got a plumbing business, you’re gonna be better off if you’ve got a whole bunch of customers who can afford to hire you, and right now everybody’s so pinched that business is bad for everybody, and I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.“
Thanks to that one moment in time, Joe “the Plumber” became part of American pop culture and he’s smartly used the notoriety to his own advantage. Today he’s an important figure in conservative circles and someone who exerts quite a bit of influence on the GOP grassroots community. He recently used that influence in an effort to assuage conservative fears of a Trump presidency and to call Republican voters to fall in behind Donald Trump’s campaign.
I support Donald Trump to try and restore us first to sanity, then back to greatness – by Joe ‘The Plumber” Wurzelbacher.
If you don’t believe the Constitution and our very way of life hang in the balance in this election – then you’d better start paying attention…
My fantasies of watching both Clinton’s finally getting their comeuppance by Donald J. Trump is not, however, the reason you need to get on this train. It’s not the border, the IRS, spending, growth, unemployment or anything else: It’s the Supreme Court.
Already with one vacancy, there could be two, three – who knows how many liberal hacks the Republican establishment could quickly rubber stamp for President Hillary? Wait – you say the GOP will stand up to her? Say what?
Paul Ryan is Speaker of the House – did you forget that? Remember how hard he fought Obama and the Dems on the jobs-killing, free-spending, tax-raising (I’m sorry, “fees”), military pension-cutting Ryan-Murray Budget Act?
The deal which had all the spending up front and all the “cuts” ten years down the road so they could easily be ignored by the next budget? The budget that fully-funded ObamaCare through 2016 – after the election? That’s the guy who’s going to stand up to Hillary? What are you, high?
And over in the Senate there’s our fearless Constitutional Conservative leader Mitch McConnell – ready to declare defeat well in advance of any confrontation with any Democrat on any subject. These establishment RINO’s would rather have Hillary in office than Donald Trump. Trust me…
You really don’t think it’s possible a deal with Hillary for his support in exchange for a Supreme Court seat can’t be struck? You’d better get your mind right and get behind Trump winning this election, pal. Now.
