Joe the Plumber, Budding War Correspondent

Sorry I can't embed this...........It's worth a look. Joe the Plumber says it's "assinine" for the media to be at the war and reporting on it. I tend to agree with him for the reasons he gives.

What do YOU think?

Z I've always like Joe the Plumber. He reminds me of the guys I grew up with. I like his honest spoken ways and his seemingly unaffected demeanor.

Good for Joe W. And ain't it funny that the DEM/MSM managed to give Joe W. the COMPLETE colonoscopy, along with Sarah Palin, but refused to give Obama's past even a second glance.

Funny how that works out. Imagine that.


So, where do you reside, in which town?

Papa Frank said...

Joe is just so simple and practical which is why his appeal completely escapes the elitist left. I hope he continues to share with the media what is common sense to you and I.

Z said...

You guys agree with him? Should we be reporting every single skirmish, every location of troops, etc etc?


Anonymous said...

Z I think his major point was one that we have asked a dozen times. Why isn't the war-time press patriotic, like it has been in the past?


Z said...

Morgan, that's true. I still wonder if we should be doing blow-by-blows in wars. I believe the constant barrage of this war, with every car bomb exploding being broadcast within 5 minutes of its occurence was bad for morale.
Some say we would have left WWII had people known the details.

Did you hear where the NYTimes has blown and Israel's cover again? Ya,..told the world Israel had asked Bush to help bomb Iran's nuclear sites this last Summer....the world knows. I wish we could sue the #@(*$&)@( out of those w#$*(&*( at the NYTimes. I swear I do. A HUGE CLASS ACTION SUIT. TOmorrow. VERY costly, too.

I didn't know it was the NYT's. This MUST become very expensive for the traitors at the NYT's, and soon. What will it take for those traitors to get the message?

Joe has a point. Right now the media are merely adversaries. We'll see how adversarial they are in a few days.

Funny how that can happen huh?


Z said...

Pris, you know, they say the media could turn on obama...mostly just for selling themselves, but...most are left enough they might not be too happy.
I hear he told Stephanopoulos this morning that he wouldn't be pursuing taking the Bush people who tried to keep us safe (and DID) to court, for keeping us safe? (IS THAT RIGHT? LOL!)...

Ya, the Left isn't thrilled...

I'm enjoying this, tell you the truth!

They won't Z. He's FAR too important to fail. The media made Obama, now they'll prop him up.


Incognito said...

No, we should not be reporting every single skirmish etc. I think embedding soldiers is dangerous, esp. with wars against terrorists.

Am glad he got something good out of the hell they put him through.

Brooke said...

I'm glad to see Joe doing well after the reaming the MSM gave him.

I think that we should know what goes on, without sensitive info, of course.

The sad thing is we cannot get 'just the facts' reports from the MSM; they load it with their leftist OP/Ed.

WomanHonorThyself said...

ltns Z!..good on him..truly!

christian soldier said...

Joe will give truth-filled accounts as to what is really going on over there...AND he knows the difference between an helicopter and a fixed wing plane! - unlike one of his counterparts over there...(gateway pundit has that tid-bit)...
Rest Well Z...
See you tomorrow...

"I'll be honest with you. I don't think journalists should be anywhere allowed war. I mean, you guys report where our troops are at. You report what's happening day to day. You make a big deal out of it. I-I think it's asinine. You know, I liked back in World War I and World War II when you'd go to the theater and you'd see your troops on, you know, the screen and everyone would be real excited and happy for'em. Now everyone's got an opinion and wants to downer--and down soldiers. You know, American soldiers or Israeli soldiers. I think media should be abolished from, uh, you know, reporting. You know, war is hell. And if you're gonna sit there and say, 'Well look at this atrocity,' well you don't know the whole story behind it half the time, so I think the media should have no business in it."


Please make it stop.

Gayle said...

Sorry, but it looks like I've missed a bunch of your posts, Z. I've truly been very busy. I'm not posting today either. Perhaps tomorrow.

I like Joe and my last post was about him working for PJTV. Maybe we'll finally get the truth! Although you and I, and most conservative bloggers already know that Hamas is to blame and hides behind civilians hoping that Israel will inflict damage on civilians, then they blame it on Israel! What gets me is that so many people in the west actually fall for such scumbag tactics or they simply hate Jews. I'm beginning to understand just how much anti-semitism is truly out there and it's despicable!

Z said...

Morgan..the POINT IS...WHY CAN't AMERICANS ERR ON OUR SIDE, RIGHT? We did in the past.
Now the NYTimes and others can't wait to make US look as bad as possible. And the Left can't SEE THAT? No..because they want to be a country on its knees in 'mea culpa' for all the 'sins' of having saved other countries over and over again (What?) You figure it out!! I can't!!

Z said... Joe with this, okay: FROM THE TIMEONLINE:

“Um, this is a fairly unique moment both in our, you know, in our country’s history, and, and in, in, you know, my own life, and um, you know, we are facing, you know, unbelievable challenges, our economy, you know, healthcare, people are losing their jobs here in New York obviously um, arh, you know. . . "
That's Caroline Kennedy, of course.

And she's well educated..RIGHT? Elitist? Democrat? Leftwing erudite woman with all the luxuries her whole life long?

And you have trouble with Joe?

He's new to the business, he's mostly RIGHT about war correspondents being on the enemy's side and reporting atrocities with none of the backup. HE can't exaggerate a bit to pad his opinions when that's about all CNN DOES?

By the way:

EVERYBODY!: The German Press this morning is complaining that the only photos ALLOWED OUT OF GAZA BY THE PA are photos of women and children moaning for the loss of loved ones, bleeding, etc...

THEY ARE NOT SHOWING THE WAR. Just the consequences which make Israel look as bad as possible.
THE GERMAN PRESS says that they're trying to influence the world by only showing the sad cases none of the evil within Gaza perpetrated BY the Gazans, so to speak.
And no stories about booby-trapped homes full of Hamas-placed bombs, etc...


That's the GERMAN PRESS. Seen it here? I'd like to know. thanks.

HA! Love the Caroline Kennedy quote, Z.
I've actually heard her bumble like that before.


Ducky's here said...

z, don't pull out a straw man. And please remember that there is a lot of resistance on the left to the Kennedy appointment. Here's Joe the Plumber.

"I think media should be abolished from, uh, you know, reporting."

How long do you want to suffer this village idiot?

Z said...

Pinky, I don't know anyone as well educated as she is who speaks that haltingly...oh, except obama.
But, really, I was NO fan of Bush's articulation so I can't go overboard on the criticism.

Ducky, that line of Joe's is just plain stupid, no doubt about it.

What I keep asking you to do is stop throwing out the bathwater.....the baby's pretty refreshing.

I do believe that reporters did a lousy job of reporting on Iraq because of their anti-war agenda.
It's rather like Germany, in today's German papers, bemoaning the fact that the only news Gaza's allowing our silly leftists who don't even ASK for the truth to see is Palestinian children and women gesticulating in sorrow for the deaths of their relatives. It's tragic, NOBODY is saying the death of ANY innocent bystander isn't tragic but what Germany's trying to say is "WHY don't they show how Hamas is setting those poor people up for death? Why aren't they showing photos of Hamas, too, as they kill the Israelis?"
Germany's conscious of the fact we're being played by the press; why aren't you?

Warren said...

Its four years of THIS I'm not going to be able to stomach.

Z said...

Warren, SO good to have you here.

And please.........will we survive the bumbling?

Man, at least Bush could talk without a sign.
