So, Joe The Plumber was out on the trail with John McCain today, apparently giving the thumbs up to someone in the crowd who felt that an Obama Presidency would bring about the end of Israel. From Raw Story:
The Ohio plumber, who has no license and is actually named Samuel Wurzelbacher, spoke at a McCain campaign event in Columbus Monday. A McCain supporter asked if “a vote for Obama is a vote for the death of Israel.” JTP hardly batted an eye.
“I’ll go ahead and agree with you on that,” Wurzelbacher said.
That’s right. Joe the plumber is a FRAUD! His name is not Joe and he doesn’t even have a license. And chances are that he never really had a chance of buying any plumbing business let alone one worth 6 times his reported annual salary.
Just more propaganda, disinformation. George Orwell and Karl Rove should be proud. Joe the plumber is really Sam the liar. And Sam the liar upset Shep the newscaster on Fox News. Now that takes some doing considering it was FOX NEWS!
I wonder what ethnicity Wurzelbacher is. Considering 3 out of 4 Jewish voters supports Senator Obama, I wonder when he became a foreign policy expert on Israel.
UPDATE: More FRAUD from the McCain campaign.
In regards to Khalidi, however, the guilt-by-association game burns John McCain as well.
During the 1990s, while he served as chairman of the International Republican Institute (IRI), McCain distributed several grants to the Palestinian research center co-founded by Khalidi, including one worth half a million dollars.
A 1998 tax filing for the McCain-led group shows a $448,873 grant to Khalidi’s Center for Palestine Research and Studies for work in the West Bank. (See grant number 5180, “West Bank: CPRS” on page 14 of this PDF.)
The relationship extends back as far as 1993, when John McCain joined IRI as chairman in January. Foreign Affairs noted in September of that year that IRI had helped fund several extensive studies in Palestine run by Khalidi’s group, including over 30 public opinion polls and a study of “sociopolitical attitudes.”
