    And the saga of Joe the Plumber, the hero of redneck nation, continues.... seems he had a book signing and only 11 people showed up, plus he only sold 5 lousy books..

    Say, I wonder if the stupid phony has paid his back taxes yet?

    If I was him I would just write "Geithner Rule" on the tax bill and hand it back.

    it's so funny how a nobody can make so many libs upset.

    It cracks me up.

    He helped catch Obama and made Obama look bad about spreadin the wealth around, and now he's going to be hated and ridiculed forever.

    Give it a rest!

    It's probably about his brief 5 minutes of fame..I do recall reading somewhere that he trashed McCain in it..maybe the GOP ticket should have been Joe/Sarah..combined IQ-150

    It's called..."Joe the Plumber: Fighting for the American Dream."

    He was caught, and if the "messed up media" would have held him to the fire, like they did McCain, and Palin, it would have mattered.

    He's the golden boy of the media. they never want to paint him badly. but his time is running out as his approval numbers slowly keep going down, as does the dow and the economic stats.

    he will fail, and the socialist agenda will fail and should fail.

    More unions, Cap and Trade, Tax the Wealthy , more social programs. Nothing at all to get anyone excited about the future of this country and the direction it is going.

    If he really wants to get things moving just give the "tax holiday" that was already proposed to everyone paying taxes (oh that would not help those not paying taxes)

    Lower the corp tax rate from 35% to 25%. show the corporattions that they have a fighting chance and they may quit laying people off left and right.

    If he did nothing at all it would be far better than he's doing right now. Every plan he announces has a negative effect on the economy.

    I am truly hoping in 2012 you and people like you do vote for Obama. Any republican running that you would consider voting for is not worth running.

    We already did that this time around. You claimed to be flirting with the idea of voting for McCain. Anyone so damn watered down that a person would have to ponder .... hrmm who should I pick Obama or ?? is a huge huge mistake.

    So when you tell me You would not vote for Thompson or Romney that tells me they might be a good pick for an actual choice between two truly different ideas.

    Yeah, that's pretty much how I feel. After the wide majority support for a felon back in the 90s, I figured if the mainstream leftists are supporting candidate X, that means he isn't worth spit.

    It also means that the choice isnt much of a choice. If a republican running can appeal to a far left liberal they arnt much of a republican and there isnt much of a choice.

    The two main people running should be offering very different ideas

    big government
    small government
    take your gun
    protect your gun rights

    it should be cut and dry clear
    there should be no room to ponder or flirt with the two choices, if you are then they are not that much different from eachother.

    I hope to god the GOP figured that out, but I guess we have to wait and see.

    CPAC will back and promote who ever wins their mock election

    *fingers are crossed for Romney*

    Agreed, but the Republican party is completely devoid of ideas, not to mention stars. They're a pathetic bunch that cares little for America and actually appears to be proud of their bigotry and ignorance.
