    Mike the Mechanic or Joe the Plumber?

    Very simple question....

    If there were a debate between them, which one wins, and why?

    Mike- "hey Joe. I've turned down a dozen jobs in the last 59 wks because unemployment paid more. I finally got a job that pays enough so that I didn't have to sacrifice any luxuries. Thanks working tax payers.
    Joe- Damn it Mike! I work my ass off trying to get a head in my business. I can't get a damn loan to expand and hire people, taxes are going to kill me and I have to spead my wealth to assholes like you!

    Joe: Besides, it's tough making any money when I don't have a license. LOL.

    Yea don't ya love the lengths the left stream media went to, to destroy a hard working American citizan? All the while ignoring the candidates back ground and associations. For a while there I thought Joe the Plumber was on the ticket. He was sure scrutinized more. Hell, they scrutinized him almost as much as they did Sarah Palin and all he did was ask if his taxes would go up if Obama won. That's Chicago politics for you.

    BTW- you are talking about a Mike the Mechanic that I saw on MSNBC aren't you? I found him and his wife both to be big whiners. Many people really are suffering in this economy. It was hard for me to feel sorry because they had to sell one of their cars before he was able to find just the right job.

    Mike the Mechanic is lazy, and a political hack. Joe the Plumber is a political hack who was not really a plumber. I see through both of them. You only see through the one you want to see through.

    Joe was a plumber. If I recall he was working under his boss's license and didn't actually have his own at that time. He was also behind on his taxes, Kind of like so many in congress only on a smaller scale. There was dirty crap going on in Ohio to get all this information and making a private citizans records available to the public. All the time IGNORING the man who was running for President. Don't dare embarrass Obama or he'll do his best to take you down.

    El wrongo. You must be registered to even work as a plumber's helper in Ohio. Joe is NOT registered, and has not even had apprenticeship training. And about what you call his boss' license?

    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.
