McCain Calls Chairman Maobama "Socialist"

It's about time.

There is, of course, some misleading information in the article:
Wurzelbacher became the focal point of the final presidential debate after he met Obama earlier in the week and said the Democrat's tax proposal could keep him from buying the two-man plumbing company where he works. However, reports of Wurzelbacher's annual earnings suggest he would receive a tax cut rather than an increase under Obama's plan.

If Joe the Plumber bought the business, his income (and taxes) would go up. This is a nice attempt at deflection, but how does Dear Leader respond to the issue at hand? By reiterating his tiresome talking points which hide the true agenda of the hard left:

Obama has said his tax policies would cut payments for 95 percent of working Americans, while increasing them only for families making more than $250,000 a year. McCain has argued that 40 percent of Americans don't pay income taxes, either because they are seniors or don't meet minimum earnings thresholds, so the only way to cut their taxes is to give them various credits.

"In other words, Barack Obama's tax plan would convert the IRS into a giant welfare agency, redistributing massive amounts of wealth at the direction of politicians in Washington," McCain said in the radio address.

An Obama spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Glad I stumbled upon your blog.
Obama does not deserve to
sniff in the direction of the
oval office.
Keep up the good work.
