Joe The Plumber: 'I Don't Know If The American Public Deserves Me'

Posted: Updated:

Joe The Plumber yesterday, transitioning from war reporter to political strategist, appeared before congressional aides to offer his two cents on the stimulus plan. Joe is taking a stand against the entire package, claiming that it is just another example of "American government" having its way with the people.

The New York Daily News has subsequently explored the possibility of Joe pursuing public office at any point in the near future. But according to Joe, "I don't know if the American public deserve me, but my son definitely deserves my time now." However, he isn't done giving advice to the GOP:

"It's not politically incorrect to say you're Republican or conservative," Joe said. "They need to dig their heels in and fight for what needs to be done."

And no reason to be subtle, he said, as long as folks inform themselves. "I don't believe there's two sides to every story. It's black and white," Wurzelbacher explained. "There's right and wrong."
