Joe the Plumber: ‘Vote for Obama a vote for the death of Israel’
ASSOCIATED PRESS: ‘Joe the Plumber,’ the small business aspirant and overnight media sensation, endorsed John McCain’s presidential campaign Tuesday and said Barack Obama would make America a socialist nation.
The Ohio plumber, whose real name is Samuel Wurzelbacher, also agreed with a McCain supporter who asked him if he believed “a vote for Obama is a vote for the death of Israel.”
“I’ll go ahead and agree with you on that,” Wurzelbacher told the man, retired Florida lawyer Stan Chapman who was visiting Ohio. He didn’t elaborate on how Obama would be caustic for Israel.
Question for Stan the Lawyer — why on earth would you be interested in a plumber’s analysis of the Middle East situation, any more than I’d solicit your views on heating & boiler replacement?
