Other bombers more than an individual key symbol.
-- America free enterprise business.

Remember -- take a look.
-- politician -- the fire when they mess up that's what we're here to do all right.
Smaller government you know as far as everyone else here -- lots of questions and asking to -- vote for real American John McCain.
I -- recently want to barker is rumored to be harboring some resentment against McCain he reportedly told Pennsylvania public radio quote.
-- McCain is no public servant.
He really strong in my life up.
Is how I look at this and McCain was trying to use me.
I happen to be the face of middle Americans it was -- -- so -- -- true joining -- -- set the record straight.
Is the man made famous in the 2008 campaign Joe The Plumber Joe -- -- -- Joe welcome back sir.
Hey thanks -- I really appreciate being here aren't what what some of these comments here that mean.
Did he ruin your life -- the mess this up that you say always thinks.
But they let let me -- -- picture as you know media likes to sit there and and cut off what you're saying they didn't go on what the full sentence actually said the rest of the sentence and -- paragraph -- -- let me paint a picture here.
He had took nine years to get custody of my son I got custody of my -- six months prior to -- -- Barack Obama.
I'll I had my thoughts for -- and I got custody and my son I got a great job I'm about to make payments to my boss to buy his company.
I mean I was living the American dream so yes John McCain and Barack Obama and -- and screwed up that life.
Now screwed up my life by that yelled that's going overboard a little bit they screwed up that life that -- I was very much looking forward to.
By deftly embrace what's come my way have been able to get out there and encourage Americans to get involved and actually.
Take responsibility for being Americans because there is a responsibility.
Being born in this country and yet you have to fulfill it there's civic duty is not a punch line it's a very real thing -- A -- back to this this statement that you got out of Barack Obama which I think turned out to me pretty.
-- just -- moment because it also was a preview of coming attractions and anyway but is that revealed his it is philosophy.
But you step into that you decided to asking the question you felt compelled to do -- you decided to go out on the campaign trail with John McCain so.
I just want to make sure you don't think McCain ruin your life you made these decisions freely on your own right.
Yes -- made these decisions for -- my own I.
Yeah it's important that Americans get involved and then go further I mean there's Nowak had gone back to my life once I asked that question.
Media wouldn't allow that it just didn't happen affected actually closed down my business for two months.
After that because media was follow me around everywhere in the last thing -- housewife once.
-- is for me to show up with NBC a might but then when she shouldn't and -- -- -- throw it doesn't work very well so.
-- that in itself closed on the business now.
But instead it gave me the opportunity get out there and and ask Americans get educated on the facts of what's going on get informed about.
The decisions they're making and the people that they're voting and we elect them and you know I went around with and John McCain because there was -- lesser of two evils -- be quite frank.
I mean I'm not afraid to say that John McCain exactly doesn't represent true conservatism he does represented Republicans but not true conservatism.
Well he certainly frustrates me.
I've battled with a month campaign finance and immigration reform the gang of twelve.
We've had a number of issues do you know I'm not support -- he's up for reelection for the Senate he's supporting him.
Absolutely not I mean that's what the tea party -- again so you know John McCain is of Washington he's a career politician.
And he said funny and and with ample opportunities to fix things and get things done and yet here we are I mean he's just the face of what's going on in Washington and I'm not necessarily trying to pick on John McCain.
I mean we need to get rid of most of those guys and then there that -- our career politician -- are the boxers or Nancy Pelosi is -- yes.
I think that you supported -- for president I'm sure there are things you agree with -- on I mean he's been pretty strong and solid on the war I do disagree with them about enhanced interrogations.
You don't disagree with that he's been a pretty strong advocate against earmarks.
So is it just isn't just those issues that I mentioned earlier -- you you really think he and all the incumbents should go.
I think he and all the income -- ago -- -- you know he's he's old Washington he's disconnected from mainstream America.
And that it it's the other our founding fathers didn't and -- intend for people to get elected in the continue to stay there they extended them to serve a term of two.
Not pass laws that are gonna affect them when they go back to the private sector there's no checks and balances in the system right now because he's got to make this a living.
They discovered a gravy train.
And they're jumped on it and you know and then damn the taxpayers is what becomes -- -- that that cannot stuff I see coming out does that mean you'll let yourself.
No that means I'm encouraging Americans get out there and do it what about you you you you're Joe The Plumber would you consider running.
-- -- I would consider running about a lot of praying about -- for the shot right now I just don't Philip laid upon my heart to do -- It seems like god wants me out around the country encouraging other people to stuff up get educated.
Get out there learn about the fair tax learn about -- about some things that can actually really fix our country and fix our economy.
Like the fair tax us up.
-- just -- -- asking people to get educated my buddy Neal Boortz wrote the definitive book on the fair tax I'll I'll get an autograph copy Joe always good to see you thanks that they -- Felt you know going to throw 12 and it's pretty good.
