It's appropriate that Obama got tripped up by a plumber*

If you're trying to win a guy's vote, why would you tell him he doesn't deserve the money he's earned?

Why should our friend Joe, who works hard and takes risks (in an entrepreneurial sense) and accepts responsibility for his own life, have to subsidize people who don't? Shouldn't he be able to decide whether or not he wants to give to charity? Shouldn't he be able to decide which ones to give it to? Who does Obama think he is to tell Joe how to run his life?

Can we please stop pretending that the second-greatest community organizer in history isn't a socialist?

*'Cause he's the dirtiest presidential candidate since Nixon.
