Talk about a guy in the right place at the right time. An American in fly over country just happened to get caught on tape asking a question about tax policy on small businesses to then candidate Barack Obama. Without a teleprompter to help him, Barack Obama spoke to the Ohio plumber off the cuff and from his heart.
Candidate Obama said, “When you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”
The question and the comeback made Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher a household name as “Joe the Plumber.”
He’s now a candidate for Congress in Ohio. He’ll be at the RedState Gathering in Jacksonville, FL. The Gathering takes place August 2nd to August 5th. Joe and I would love to see you there, but time is running out. We’re about a week away from winding down registration.

I hope I’ll see you there.
