Funny stuff/

The Messiah, to counter the Joe the Plumber firestorm recently said that he had never met a plumber that made 250 thousand dollars.

Setting aside the fact “Joe” never said it, (he was looking at the possibility of owning his own business that would then make that much scratch, in other words obama lied!) Tommy the Plumber has a few choice words for the Messiah:

“I’ve made that,” said Tommy Kimmons, owner of Kimmons Plumbing. “I know a lot of other plumbers that have made more than that. We are already taxed to the death and you want to throw some more on us, especially in these economical times. People are going to be laying people off.”

As long as I’m making introductions, Messiah, meet Dave the Building Contractor.

Dave McCartney of McCartney Improvement Co. in Davenport, argued Obama’s tax policies would hurt small businesses like his.

McCartney said higher taxes on his profits cut back on the money he has to invest in new equipment and to expand his business or hire more people.

The company employs 13 full-time employees as well as additional sub-contractors.

“The economy’s already starting to slow, and we’re feeling it,” McCartney said.

McCartney also said a mandate that small businesses provide health care to their workers could cause him to trim his work force, a characterization of Obama’s health care plan that the campaign said was false.

The Obama campaign said Obama’s plan would not require small businesses to provide health care coverage to their workers.

As expected some nitwit in the Messiah’s campaign blew over anything directly related to what McCartney has to say and let lose with usual bilge of talking points we’ve heard a thousand times – times ten.

“Barack Obama understands the challenges facing hardworking Iowans like me,” Friedhof said. “As president, he will cut taxes for 95 percent of all workers and help small businesses succeed in this struggling economy. While John McCain wants to continue President Bush’s tax cuts for big corporations and their wealthy CEOs, Barack Obama will cut taxes for middle class families.”

Friedhof, you can take that crapola and stick it where the sun doesn’t shine, and Messiah talking points reside.

Barack Obama’s promise to unilaterally rewrite the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) if Canada and Mexico won’t go along with his ideas on labor and the environment have fallen on deaf Canadian ears.

In short… the Canucks are telling The Messiah, screw you! We’ll send all our exports to the EU.

P.S. BTW Messiah, you can also take your planned “carbon crackdown” (READ: Massive tax increase) and stick it up your rosy-pink ass.

Weren’t the euro-weenies all crying about the “Evil Bush” not signing the Kyoto Treaty? (And lied while doing it, the treaty was never brought up for a vote.)

Well, their still crying. But it’s a different tune now:

Meanwhile, heavy industry has stepped up its condemnation of proposals endorsed last week by the European parliament’s environment committee that would force businesses to pay for the carbon dioxide they emit.

Speaking to the FT, representatives of the German Mittelstand – the small and medium-sized businesses that form the backbone of the economy – added their own voice to the fight against the compulsory purchase of emissions permits.

“Senator Obama does not have sufficient leadership experience, nor has he been tested in difficult times,” said Mark W. Erwin, a Democrat and former Hillary Clinton supporter who is a co-chairman of Former U.S. Ambassadors for McCain/Palin. Erwin was ambassador to the Republic of Mauritius.

And a Democrat to boot.

And only 1 0f 100.

Well you can’t get too much dumber than this. On the other hand she is, or WAS, a “reporter” for a MSM outlet.

Detroit news radio station WWJ-AM (950) has fired radio personality Karen Dinkins after she wore a Barack Obama T-shirt while covering a presidential rally last weekend.

Dinkins, contacted at her home, said she is surprised about the reaction to her firing after Sunday’s rally at the Detroit Public Library. She said a number of news outlets contacted her after the station let her go on Monday. She said she had worked there for 13 years.

“I was really kind of surprised this is a news story,” she said, adding that she wouldn’t comment further. “I didn’t anticipate it.”

Bet she would be surprised to also learn there is a little thing adhered to by the Society of Professional Journalists called a Code of Ethics that includes this tidbit of information: “Distinguish between advocacy and news reporting. Analysis and commentary should be labeled and not misrepresent fact or context.”

A 13 year career up in smoke all because of an obsession with The ObamaMessiah.
