Never Question Obama

And just when you thought it couldn’t get any uglier, Sen. Obama and his campaign comes through again. No one seems to be able to answer the question why Sen. Obama has never been subjected to such inquiries.

Never Question Obama: ”

Don’t answer that door!

Obama Knocks

You will find no better illustration of the hazards of simply
asking a question Barack Obama doesn’t want to answer than
the frenzy on the part of Obama’s campaign and his allies in the
media and the Left blogs to attack Joe the Plumber. The amazing
thing is, this isn’t a guy who was set up by one of the campaigns
to tell a sob story that had to be checked. Obama was going door to
door, he met this guy who was playing football in his yard


*
. Joe said he’d like to be more successful and buy his own
business, and asked Obama why that meant he should have to pay
higher taxes, and
Obama gave his now-infamous answer that ‘I think that when you
spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.’
John McCain
responded by retelling that story in the debate to illustrate
Obama’s instincts for redistribution, and both candidates ended up
using Joe as an example of how their various plans would affect
small businesspeople.

But fearful of the damage caused by Obama’s answer, the Obama
camp and its surrogates have gone on the attack against this
ordinary citizen from Toldeo:

*Obama
campaign flacks attacking McCain for failing to ‘vet’ a guy who
only became an issue because Obama showed up in his yard
.

*Ben
Smith dug up his voter registration
. (More here).

*The media
dug up tax liens on him

*

*Not only did
reporters go after his licensing as a plumber
, but now
government officials are after his business
.

*Lefty blogs
publishing his home address
and
writing up attacks on him
and
digging into his family tree
.

*Here’s a NY
Times article digging up more dirt on Joe than they’ve bothered to
cobble together on Obama
, and
another here
.

*Andrew Sullivan finds a new obsession with the plumber,
reducing this man to a ‘hood ornament[]’ (here,

here
, and
here
).

*Here
is a roundup of the media frenzy
. Remember, read all these and
ask yourself when the last time was you saw a report on, say,
Barack
Obama’s relationship with the Chicago political machine
.

(As Ace notes,
the Chicago-style ton of bricks dropped on Joe should help
intimidate people who might actually come forward with stories from
Obama’s past he doesn’t want told
)

UPDATE (also noted in comments):
McCain defends ordinary Joe
:

The response from Senator Obama and his campaign
yesterday was to attack Joe. People are digging through his
personal life and he has TV crews camped out in front of his house.
He didn’t ask for Senator Obama to come to his house. He wasn’t
recruited or prompted by our campaign. He just asked a question.
And Americans ought to be able to ask Senator Obama tough questions
without being smeared and targeted with political
attacks.
