All Joe all the Time!

Please visit http://hotlineblog.nationaljournal.com/ for the complete article on everybody’s favorite plumber. It’s very entertaining. I’ll give you the highlights:

  • When Barack Obama and Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher (aka Joe The Plumber)met recently in Ohio, the two got to talking about small businesses. Wurzelbacher told the senator he’s a “plumber” and he’s looking to buy a company. Obama asked how long he’d been a plumber. “Fifteen years,” Wurzelbacher replied.Oh, really?Wurzelbacher registered as an apprentice with the Ohio State Apprenticeship Council in November 2003, according to Dennis Evans, spokesman with the Department of Job and Family Services.
  • He doesn’t have a plumbing license required by the city of Toledo to practice, according to a staffer with the Toledo Division of Building Inspection
  • Wurzelbacher can’t legally do plumbing work without a license, regardless of his boss’s certification.
  • In the meantime, the Democrat-friendly local plumbers’ union is fuming. “He has no license whatsoever with the city of Toledo,” said Tom Joseph, the business manager for Local Union 50 of the Plumbers, Steamfitters and Service Mechanics, which has endorsed Obama.
  • “The real Joe Plumbers are for Barack” -Samuel “Joseph” Wurzelbacher

 Is the picture becoming a bit more clear?
