Joe the Plumber: ‘I think media should be abolished’ from reporting on war.»

http://thinkprogress.org/2009/01/11/joe-plumber-media/



Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, aka “Joe the Plumber,” is currently in Israel covering the war for the conservative site PJTV.com. When asked what he has learned from his new experiences as a journalist, Wurzelbacher said that he believes the media shouldn’t be allowed to do “reporting” on wars:



Quote:
I’ll be honest with you. I don’t think journalists should be anywhere allowed war. I mean, you guys report where our troops are at. You report what’s happening day to day. You make a big deal out of it. I think it’s asinine. You know, I liked back in World War I and World War II when you’d go to the theater and you’d see your troops on, you know, the screen and everyone would be real excited and happy for’em. Now everyone’s got an opinion and wants to downer–and down soldiers. You know, American soldiers or Israeli soldiers.



I think media should be abolished from, uh, you know, reporting. You know, war is hell. And if you’re gonna sit there and say, “Well look at this atrocity,” well you don’t know the whole story behind it half the time, so I think the media should have no business in it.



Holy ****. I think Joe got into the sauce while he was over there.

So Joe is going to refund the money the media outlet paid for his flight to Israel and he'll stop publishing news stories while he is there?



Holy cow just how stupid can one person be?

Joe the Plumber is the apple. McCain/Palin was the apple tree.

So he is reporting about the war even though he doesn't feel the media should report on wars? That makes sense. I hear he has a book out too. Is that true?

I would think real conservatives would be embarrassed by Joe the Plumber. Why would they put him on TV? Aren't there educated, conservative, thoughtful journalists they could put on TV?

Not on FOX news. They love him and so does Mike Huckabee. Figures.



Hey, if he makes it longer than that longest 15 minutes of fame, he may end up making 250k and be taxed higher.



I wonder what is worse....hearing more of Joe or lipstick and a pitbull.

*note to self* Next presidential campaign, be sure to get into earshot of the Republican candidate and ask him a question that makes him look like an enemy of the working class. Which shouldn't be hard to think of...

I don't get it. Halloween is over. The election is over. McCain/Palin didn't win. Why is this guy still trying to be Joseph Goebbels?

Because one day he was outside playing catch with his son on the front yard and Obama harrassed him and was telling him how he will spread the wealth around of how much Joe the Plummer doesn't make and he wants to buy a plumming business without a license and is somehow blaiming Obama that the CEO's across America always says those average six packs can never make it.



Blame McCain the same because he did start it in the debates.



Meanwhile, that trickle down works so well that even our best 'Socialist' American prez is spreading the love around once again to all the wrong people. Putting us in more debt right before his butt gets kicked back to Texas.



That is my recap for the moment.



Stay tunned and warned.......
