Joe the Plumber for Congress? Yes, it is true! Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher has filed his statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission to run for the 9th Congressional seat in Ohio as a Republican, currently held by Democrat Marcy Kaptur. She will face Dennis Kucinich in a primary fight, as his 10th District is being melded into the 9th since Ohio has lost 2 seats. So can Joe the Plumber, the man who got Barack Obama to admit he was a Socialist during the 2008 campaign against John McCain, win and serve in Congress?
You betcha! Anything is possible in the Age of the Tea Party. Especially with half-wit Democrats ruining the nation with their failed economic policies. Not content to just pass ridiculous laws and regulations, now the Democrats, including Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi, are encouraging civil unrest with the Occupy Wall Street kooks committing acts of violence and vandalism.
The 2012 election will be a pivotal one. We saw in 2010 how the Tea Party booted spend-crazy Democrats out of office and gave the Republicans control of the House of Representatives. With the White House and 23 Democrat US Senate seats up for grabs in 2012, the Tea Party could tilt the scales of American politics back to the Conservative Right. But the GOP will have to make good on shrinking the size and power of the federal government, and getting the nation′s fiscal house in order. Otherwise, we may see a new, viable third party arise in the future, displacing both the GOP and Democrats.
But for now, let us celebrate the announcement of Joe the Plumber for Congress. Samuel Joseph Wurzalbacher, the man who got Barack Obama to admit to his Socialism, has filed his statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission. He will be running for Ohio′s 9th District seat, currently held by Marcy Kaptur, the longest sitting Democrat woman in Congress. She will have to face Dennis Kucinich in a primary, as his 10th District seat is being melded due to population loss. I′m sure Sarah Palin will help Joe in his campaign, but will John McCain lend a hand?
