NEW YORK, NY – Joe the Plumber has a pretty big bone to pick with John McCain and Sarah Palin!
Joe the Plumber, also known as Samuel Wurzelbacher, rose to fame in the 2008 U.S. presidential election as the McCain-Palin campaign used him as a metaphor for middle-class Americans. He was a strong critic of Barack Obama’s small business tax policy.
Well it seems as though Wurzelbacher has changed his allegiances and no longer values McCain. At a benefit for a Pennsylvania Republican state representative Sam Rohrer, he voiced his displeasure. “I don’t owe him s—. He really screwed my life up, is how I look at it.”
He went as far as saying that McCain was “no public servant” and calling him a career politician. He feels as though he was a ploy of the McCain campaign because he happened to be the face of middle Americans. He also stated that he no longer backs Sarah Palin because she is supporting the Arizona Republican’s re-election bid.
Joe the Plumber did have some nice things to say – about President Obama. “I think his ideology is urn-American, but he’s one of the more honest politicians. At least he told us what he wanted to do,” said Wurzelbacher.
The man known by many as Joe the Plumber has certainly gotten the most out of his 15 minutes of fame. He has become a motivational speaker and has used the stage set in front of him to speak about the issues that are important to him. He’s been asked to support more than 200 politicians but to date has only shown support for five. For someone that was never in the spotlight, Joe the Plumber has certainly become a hot commodity.

  4. Whether "Joe the Plumber" supports Obama or McCain, there should be policies that encourage people to thrive financially on their individual talents. The harder it is to make a buck starting a business, the more DEPENDENT one becomes on government and employers. Dependency is slavery.
    Everyone has talents that they can make a buck (or a thousand) with. There will be more competition to keep prices honest, and more selections for the consumer.
    In America, we all have an equal opportunity to become unequal.
