    Default Joe/Sam the Fake Plumber/tax cheat was once a welfare queen

    Is there anything this guy hasn't been involved in? What's next for Joe, "Dancing with the Stars?" I was watching H&C last night and made this clip after I almost couldn't stop laughing at this guy. Joe "the Plumber" Wurtzelbacher is the perfect definition of what a wingnut is if you never understood the term before. You see, he survived in our country using welfare, a program designed to help the needy, but now says Obama is not loyal to our country because he wants to take our money and give it to other people. Does he drive a Cadillac too? I guess if it wasn't for welfare he wouldn't be littering our air waves. His 15 minutes are almost up.

    Colmes: Do you really doubt that Barack Obama's loyalty to the United States?

    Plumber: Ah...to a Democracy "yes," I mean, right back to the, as far as the Socialism issues, spreading the wealth around. I mean, Alan that is right out of Karl Marx.....Webster dictionary...government health care...

    Colmes: You don't think he's loyal to our country?

    Plumber Joe: To democracy? He's proposing a lot of changes that could change the core of America, don't you think?

    Plumber Joe: Was it patriotic for Joe Biden to say "take my money and give it to other people? That's patriotism?

    Colmes: Well, let me ask, you were on welfare once, was that taking somebodies else's money and giving it to you?

    Plumber Joe: Paid into welfare. It something to be used, not to be abused like it often is.

    Spoken like a true wingnut. He's perfect for FOX News. Colmes nailed him pretty good. He talks about his principles at the end of the clip, but really they are no principles at all, just the principle of a wingnut.

    Jed has more:

    So it turns out that when Plumber Joe was a child, he was on welfare, not once, but twice, and he credits it with helping his family ultimately lead a middle-class life style. He defends having received welfare by saying that he's subsequently paid into the system.

    Suddenly we have Joe The Reasonable, right? Well, not exactly. Plumber Joe has got something of a tax dodging problem. In the end, he's just another typical Republican hypocrite. Crooks and Liars
    Granted, it would appear his parents were on welfare but still, this dickhead has the audacity to say anything about anybody giving anything to anyone? Fuck off you fucking asshat.

    Yeah, it seems that a lot of repugs are hypocrites when it comes to social programs. My dad, for example, slams democrats left and right but has been on social security disability sitting on his ass at home for over 20 years. His disability? He had a heart attack. He also has emphysema. But it hasn't gotten really bad until the last few years, nothing that would prevent him from working a desk job.

    But he'd tear my head off if I pointed this out.

    Not surprised.

    More Joe news (hopefully the last we'll hear from him):

    Joe the Plumber gets warning, not speeding ticket

    12 hours ago
    TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) Police stopped "Joe the Plumber" for speeding last week but didn't issue a ticket out of concern it would reflect negatively on the Toledo department, an officer's report said.

    Officers tracked Samuel J. Wurzelbacher driving about 50 mph in a 35 mph zone in his Dodge Durango SUV on Wednesday, the police report said.
    In the final presidential debate, Republican John McCain portrayed Wurzelbacher as emblematic of people with concerns about Democrat Barack Obama's tax plans. Wurzelbacher has since endorsed McCain. His instant fame set off a rush of interest in the plumber's background.

    Toledo's police chief said on Tuesday the day before the traffic stop that a department clerk faces a disciplinary hearing for allegedly looking up Wurzelbacher's address on a state computer database.

    Wurzelbacher was given a verbal warning because of that ongoing investigation and because a citation could have "negative repercussions to the department and city as a whole," according to the report, which lists "Patrolman Bailey" as its author.

    Wurzelbacher would not comment on the traffic stop when reached by telephone Monday evening.

    You know, I almost feel sorry for this guy because it's obvious he was just a pawn who got in way over his head. What makes me not feel sory for him is that he just keeps on shooting his mouth off, even when the bleeding obvious is pointed out to him, such as the fact he'll do better under Obama tax cuts. The problem with all of it is the fact that he is dumber than a puddle of mud and doesn't seem to realize that he has been used and is now being thrown under the bus.

    "Joe" must be wishing he never took his head out of the toilet right about now.

    Much like Palin, he seems too stupid to know what he doesn't know. He's probably used to sitting around with a bunch of uneducated, ill-informed people, bitching about everything. And now that he's in the spotlight, he's just regurgitating the same shit he and his buddies spouted over pool and beers, not realizing how stupid he sounds.

    I don't think he gets it, either, since he keeps coming back for more. How long before that agent drops him like a hot potato?

    I saw a report on MSNBC, but can't find it elsewhere, where "Joe" the "Plumber" made an appearance, and a REAL plumber approached him saying "JOE GET A LICENSE! JOE GET A LICENCE! PAY YOUR TAXES!" LOL it was great, until a repub. staffer jumped in and knocked the guy over.
