Obama Out of Touch

Barack Obama recently took John McCain to task for claiming he spoke for guys like the famous "Joe the Plumber."

"How many plumbers do you know who make a quarter of a million dollars a year?" mocked Obama.

Clearly, Obama has never had to pay a plumber to fix a leaky faucet.

Of all the back and forth on Joe the Plumber today, that peek into Obama was most telling.

It requires a lot of repeating, to the folks who understand what it is to be, anything like a Joe.

Or Joe's future employees, when he does get try to buy that business.

I guess media types from Toronto are unable to fix leaky faucets themselves.

At least he's not talking about ACORN, which is a tragedy, but doesn't register with most voters.
