Joe The Plumber “Appalled” By McCain
More evidence that Joe Wurzelbacher knows little more than what his gut tells him:
Wurzelbacher told conservative radio host Glenn Beck that he felt â€œdirtyâ€ after â€œbeing on the campaign trail and seeing some of the things that take place.â€
Recalling a conversation he had with McCain about the $700 billion financial industry bailout in September, Wurzelbacher said: â€œWhen I was on the bus with him, I asked him a lot of questions about the bailout because most Americans did not want that to happen.â€
â€œI asked him some pretty direct questions,â€ he continued. â€œSome of the answers you guys are gonna receive â€” they appalled me, absolutely. I was angry. In fact I wanted to get off the bus after I talked to him.â€
Actually, when Americans heard exactly why the bailout was needed, they were much more likely to support it. To say that a different way…when it wasn’t characterized as a “bailout”, but a way to save our entire banking system so the economy didn’t go completely sideways, people responded much more favorably to the idea that government intervention was needed.
But Joe? He just goes with his gut.
You know what else his gut told him? I’m sure you’ve already guessed it…
While Wurzelbacher was critical of McCain during the interview, he had nothing but praise for his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. â€œSarah Palin is absolutely the real deal,â€ he said.
You have no idea how much I’m looking forward to 2012.
