    ABC News: America's Overnight Sensation Joe the Plumber Owes $1,200 in Taxes

    Another example where McCain didn't do his research and it comes back to bite him in the ass.

    So Republicans have now lost one of their few talking points, Joe the Plumber. Time to go back to talking about Ayers in trying to scare the American people Republicans.

    Funny thing, how Obama has been running for President for 2 years and we know nothing about him but "Joe the Plumber" asks Obama a question and the media digs his whole life up in 24 hours. Amazing....what exactly did the plumber do wrong? He asked a question and Obama answered it..

    Oh garbage. Joe isn't that stupid. He hit Obama with a theoretical question and everyone is flipping out. So Joe somes taxes---do you realize how many people owe taxes. Fuck taxes. And he has medical bills ? OMG shocking!
    Joe the Plumber asks a singel question and sends the American presidential election spinning. One guy. Think about it .

    Extremist Alert!

    We know plenty about Obama, and it is called interviews with the man/public records.

    You know about those right? If I see BS, I'll call it BS and prove why.

    Now move along cindy, I'm sure you got some Obama/Wright tapes to make.

    I don't think we know his whole life - just that he doesn't have a license and owes back taxes.

    We know a lot more about Obama, his upbringing, his amily, his church, his ex church, his legislation, his bad habits - hell we even know that his daughters are getting a puppy next spring. And lots of other stuff.

    That's not even the main point of this thread.

    Glad you ignore the fact that Joe the Plumber actually gets a tax cut/break under Obama and not raised taxes.

    Epic fail on your attempt at spin.

    Lodge your complaint with the McCain campaign. Grandpa mentioned Joe like 20 times last night, that was bound to get the media interested.

    As for Joe, he's evidently a liar. He was more concerned with parroting a republican talking point he heard on the Limbaugh show, than he was with actually getting an accurate answer. If his main issue is "taxes - like he claimed - the answer is he won't pay more taxes under obama, and since he only makes 40 grand a year, his tax burden will actually be less under obama.

    But I'll wager he's still voting for McCain. Because he wasn't really wasn't interested in Obama's answer. He is emotionally invested in the GOP and will vote for them no matter what. He just wanted to parrot a talking point he heard on Fox News.
