Joe The Plumber was catapulted into the media spotlight after asking, then Senator Barack Obama a simple question while campaigning in Joe's neighborhood. Their famous exchange has been replayed for millions of viewers the world over. Joe has since become an American folk hero and the ultimate icon of the working class. Joe The Plumber - Fighting for the American Dream follows Joe's adventures in the media and along the campaign trail up to the 2008 Presidential Election. Discover the Real Story that hasn't been told about his rendezvous with Obama, the real and personal impact of the illegal invasion of his privacy by Ohio State officials, his eye-opening experience with Governor Sarah Palin, and the tough question he asked John McCain while on his Straight Talk Express. Readers will enjoy Joe's witticisms, his reflections about his upbringing, and come to know the real man aside from myth and legend.
Very good. This is a hard cover book. The cover and pages show signs of normal wear. This book has no highlighting, bent, or torn pages. We ship Monday-Saturday and respond to inquries within 24 hours.
Seriously, rightwingers, Joe the Plumber? I mean, is this a joke? Joe the Plumber gets a book?! Do you guys have any standards at all? There is someone in a chatroom who calls Obama, "bunghole", does she get to write a book also?
Joe writes, "If you think he [Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad] should be able to step up to the United Nations podium ... and rail against the country that has graciously given him a stage, then are you really interested in protecting our freedoms?" Um, there are so many things wrong with this statement. So many. First, the United Nations is headquartered in the US but that does not mean, nor it should, that we should ban voices we disagree with as Sean Hannity mutes callers who makes him look bad on his radio show. Trust me on that one, he has done it to me personally when I've exposed his hypocrisy.
Anyway, how does allowing the leader of Iran hinder my freedom in anyway? Um, it doesn't. Ok, how does allowing him to speak, mean I am not interested in protecting my freedom? Gosh if I know. I wonder if Joey is drunk when he writes those words. Again, seriously rightwing, this is your spokesman? Someone who gave Joey a 5 star review wrote, "He's angry, vicious, ignorant, and intellectually incurious." Wow, and that to the reviewer was a good thing! Yeah, he doesn't know a damn thing and doesn't want to learn but let's have him write a book!" Joey as a war correspondent in the region of Israel stated about the media reporting on war, "And the media should be abolished from, ah, you know, covering.". This man actually believes that the purpose of the media is to cheerlead for a nation's elite and politicians when it comes to war. I never thought the rightiwng would give this idiot a book deal, but they did.
