“‘To be honest with you, that infuriates me,’ plumber Joe Wurzelbacher told Nightline’s Terry Moran. ‘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.’
‘That’s just completely wrong,’ he added…
During his telephone interview with ABC News, the Ohio plumber argued that the government should not tax some Americans at a higher percentage than others and argued that this principle should extend not only to taxpayers at his income-level but also to the world’s richest man.
‘I don’t like it,’ said Wurzelbacher. ‘You know, me or — you know, Bill Gates, I don’t care who you are. If you worked for it, if it was your idea, and you implemented it, it’s not right for someone to decide you made too much.'”
“‘A plumber is the guy he’s fighting for,’ Obama sneered. The word ‘plumber’ was delivered as if he were saying ‘crap’ or some similar adjective. The crowd hoots and jeers.
Then Obama lies when he intimates that Joe is making $250,000 a year.
‘How many plumbers you know making a quarter million dollars a year?’ Obama asked.
Well, of course Joe never said he made $250,000 a year but rather that he wanted to buy a company for $250-$280 thousand.
Barack Obama: Change we can sneer at.”

“Wisconsin Republican Party executive director Mark Jefferson accused the Racine district of being a ‘satellite campaign office’ for Obama. Deciding to use the textbook was at best very poor judgment and at worst intentional indoctrination of students in Democratic politics, he said.
‘That offends a lot of people in our party and justifiably so,’ Jefferson said. ‘‘You don’t have to look very far outside of the Democratic presidential nominee to come up with other stories of inspiration as well.’
Phil Walzak, spokesman for Obama’s campaign in Wisconsin, declined immediate comment.”

“An internal email from the Michigan Department of Corrections in August describes a request from the campaign to enter jails to register those inmates set to be released before Election Day.
An Obama spokesman in Michigan acknowledged that a new organizer made the request, but supervisors nixed the idea as soon as they found out about it. The campaign denied all association with a second request to the Department of Corrections. The emails say that a Theresa Collins, identified as the national coordinator of ‘Inmates to Support Barack Obama,’ asked the prison to post information about how prisoners could make campaign contributions to Obama. That group doesn’t appear to have any Web site.”

“Obama-mania has reached the last mile – Mississippi’s Death Row.
Dale Leo Bishop’s final words before his execution Wednesday night included a pitch for the Democratic presidential candidate, the Jackson Clarion Ledger reported.
‘For those who oppose the death penalty and want to see it end, our best bet is to vote for Barack Obama because his supporters have been working behind the scenes to end this practice,’ Bishop, 34, said shortly before he was given a lethal injection for his role in a murder.
Obama actually says he supports the death penalty for ‘the most heinous crimes.’
Bishop’s very last words – after the endorsement – were: ‘God bless America. It has been great living here. That’s all.'”

“Evidence continues to mount that Barack Obama had substantial help from Bill Ayers in the creation of his 1995 book, Dreams From My Father, a book that Time Magazine has called ‘the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician.’ The evidence falls into five general categories, here summarized.
> The discovery of new matching nautical metaphors from both Ayers and Obama that almost assuredly came from the same source: Ayers, a former merchant seaman.
> The discovery of a Bill Ayers’ essay on memoir writing, whose postmodern themes and phrases are echoed throughout Dreams.
> A newly discovered book chapter from 1990 that shows clearly and painfully the limits of Obama’s prose style the year he received a contract to write Dreams.
> The revelation by radical Islamicist Rashid Khalidi that Ayers made his ‘dining room table’ available for neighborhood writers who needed help.
> A refined timeline that shows Ayers had the means, the motive and the time to help Obama when he needed it most.”
