Obama mocks, then lies about Joe the Plumber

The presidential candidate who mocked ordinary Americans for "clinging" to guns and religion is up to his old tricks again.

Barack Obama told a laughing crowd today who John McCain was standing up for:


"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 and hoped to make $250-$280 thousand.

Barack Obama: Change we can sneer at.
