2008 Presidential Elections
Wurzelbacher became a celebrity of the moment when 2008 presidential candidate Barack Obama was campaigning in Ohio, he spoke with Joe while news cameras were rolling. Joe publicly countered Obama's plan for redistributing wealth, explaining that it sounds just like socialism. The Lamestream media went into full damage control mode, in protection of Obama.
Joe would join John McCain's doomed campaign, giving support to the McCain/Palin ticket. Afterwards, Joe said he was disgusted with the whole McCain camp.
Wurzelbacher has kept a high profile regularly writing political columns at major Conservative media properties. As his nickname implies, he is a plumber by trade.
- "Sarah Palin is absolutely the real deal. You know, I only got to spend a short amount of time with her but, you know, it was been asked if I felt any presence when I was with John McCain or Barack Obama. You know, with Sarah Palin, I don't want to say I felt a presence but she definitely had energy and she definitely went to work for American people, and it disgusts me on how often they try to bash her just for her sincerity. It's just, you know, she really wants to work for America and I mean, I wish people would listen to her and let them, and let her work for us. You know, she wants to serve us. She's not looking for power."
