Joe the Plumber says McCain 'was trying to use me'


By Stephan Savoia, AP
Joe the Plumber, who backed Sen. John McCain for president in 2008, is back. But this time, he trashes the Arizona senator as "no public servant" and says McCain "really screwed my life up."

Joe, aka Samuel J.Wurzelbacher, made his comments to Pennsylvania public radio's Scott Detrow, who writes about it on his political blog.

Joe, who was in town to back a Pennsylvania state gubernatorial hopeful, told Detrow that "McCain was trying to use me."

"I happened to be the face of middle Americans," Wurzelbacher says. "It was a ploy.

He adds: "I don't owe him só. He really screwed my life up, is how I look at it."

Wurzelbacher is also withdrawing his support for Sarah Palin. Why? Because she has endorsed McCain for re-election in Arizona.

Let's see McCain allowed his 'own handlers' to throw Palin under the bus during the campaign and didn't come to the defense of Joe when Joe was getting "Alinskyized". And now Palin (which I don't understand) backs McCain?

Sounds to me like Joe is a smart conservative who is connecting the dots.

That seems like a pretty low bar to set for "smart conservative."

Low Bar???? :hmmm: I think that speaks more to you and the Obama drones who don't want to do anything for themselves totally sacrificing freedom for so-called security:rolleyes:

I would ask Joe how much he gained from his notoriety from the election cycle. I would bet that he is living better than he was. He had his 15 minutes of fame that we are all allowed once in life and wasn't happy with the outcome. He agreed going in and apparently screwed up, now he will have to live with his choices.

He may be living better(monitarily) but who really knows? It could be he is spending his $ on lawyers defending him against the 'left' who can't stand the fact that it was "Joe" who initially exposed Obama to the "average joe public"(pardon the pun) in the mainstream media to Obama's socialism:clap:ROFL:clap:ROFL

But I agree he must live with his choices, but probably expected a little help from the 'Progressive Republican' he supported when he got attacked so harshly. But wait a minute :hmmm: Help? from a Progressive? Nahhhhhh ain't happenin:shake:

Weird...Liberals calling a Republican dumb. That's the first time I've heard that one used except for Ford, Reagan, Bush, Quayle, Bush and Palin.

No need to get your Patton Underoos in a wad, I would be happy for some truly "smart conservatives" on either side to emerge with ideas instead of rhetoric, and I am far from an Obama drone, but don't let your assumptions get in the way of reality.

I wouldn't say that at all. If he gets a nomination, I would be willing to listen to him. I think he may still have an uphill battle getting nominated with the religious right still very much a significant influence.
