Killing the Messenger

So, predictably, Obama supporters have decided to focus on Joe "The Plumber" Wurzelbacher rather than responding to The Obamessiah's blatantly socialist comments.

I say "predictably" because this is the kind of stupid shit that liberals seem to pull on a regular basis. Because their worldview places so much importance on good intentions and opinions, they feel that they can alter reality itself by destroying someone's character, even if this has nothing to do with the issue. It's kind of like when John Kerry's campaign responded to criticism of the "I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it" comment by attacking Bush's National Guard record.

Answer me this, morons: Why does it matter if Joe is really his middle name? Why does it matter if he's not licensed as a plumber? Why does it matter if Obama's tax policy wouldn't actually affect him?

Let's take Joe out of the equation entirely and imagine (which liberals love to do) that Obama was asked the following question:

Let's say, hypothetically, that a plumber is getting ready to buy a company that makes $250,000 to $280,000 a year. Is your tax plan going to raise his taxes?

Now let's make some very small changes to the part of Obama's answer that everyone is concerned with:

It's not that I want to punish his success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind him, that they've got a chance at success, too...And I think that when we spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody.

Is it fucking clear now, you ignorant dipshits? Even if Joe doesn't exist, the fact remains that St. Hopechange wants to "spread the wealth around," which, unless he's speaking a different version of English, means he believes in redistribution.

But we wouldn't want to talk about things that matter when it's so much more fun to waste time on character assassination, would we?

I hate people.
