Wednesday night’s debate introduced America to “Joe the Plumber.” While Joe is an actual person who is working hard to make ends meet, he represents more than just being a plumber.

“Joe” represents a fundamental difference between what we believe as Republicans and what Democrats want for our country.

When Joe asked Barack Obama about how he was going to have his taxes raised under Obama’s Tax Plan, Senator Obama responded: "I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."

I think Joe responded for all of us when he said: "It's not right for someone to decide you made too much---that you've done too good and now we're going to take some of it back."

( email from Tom Cole, M.C. website@nrcc.org )

dude, put down the bong.

The rest of the nation already gets it. Poor Joe the Plumber was neither joe, nor a plumber, and seems to be in some ugly legal problems, and may also be the unindicted guy illegally working on someone else's license....

Now is that really what we want americans to think about when they think republican? Unindicted criminal types?
