    So, he is pretty much the left's version of Joe the Plumber? OK well then most likely that makes him a hack.

    Oops, his boss does not have a license either. Now I don't know about Ohio, but in Texas, we call that a fly-by-night company, and in Texas, that is a criminal act.

    And about making records available to the public? In all states, license information is public domain. Nobody is making up stuff to crucify Joe. His situation is his own, and thus the responsibility for his breaking the law is also his own.
    OK, maybe I was mistaken.
    You didn't address the fact that Joe the not-a-plumber was aggressively investigated because of a question he asked Obama about taxes? Where were the investigations into the past of the one running for president? After all, he is the one who let it slip that he wanted to "spread the wealth around." The media distracted us from that fact by turning on a private citizan.

    Was Joe investigated because of that, or was he investigated because he said he was a plumber, but people found out he did not have a license, or was he being investigated before he got his 5 minutes of fame? I can tell you this much - If I was a plumber with no license, I would not be broadcasting to the entire world that I was a plumber.

    But I will give Joe this much - At least he liked working for a living, unlike Mike the Mechanic.

    Does it matter why or when? The fact is, the media found it more important to investigate Joe ( a citizan) than to investigate or report on Obama's socialist words. The free market isn't going to be destroyed by a man who is working on my toilet without a license. It may nvery well be destroyed by a president who believes in "spreading the wealth around."
    It was all a slight of hand. Here, over here people, Look! Joe is not a real plumber. Joe is a liar. Don't look at the other hand where Obama wants to raise your taxes to spread the wealth around.

    I honestly don't feel bad for the way Joe was treated towards the end of the campaign. He as a private citizen had the right to not go on the air and all those news stations, but he did so honestly most of the stuff he went through he deserved. And the same will be said for this Mike the Mechanic if follows the same route.

    I feel bad for the country. We have a media that ignores a statement made by a presidential candidate in favor of going after a plumber/non-plumber who asked him a simple question.

    Well 24 hour news media is pretty much useless. And his comments weren't ignored and like I said Joe brought it upon himself by keeping himself in the limelight and going on news networks to talk.
