"I'll actually go ahead and agree with you on that one."
Samuel Wurzelbacher, better known as "Joe the Plumber," when asked while campaigning for John McCain if a vote for Democrat Barack Obama is a vote for the "death of Israel."
Trying to explain his response, Wurzelbacher told Shepard Smith of Fox News, "You don't want my opinion on foreign policy. I know just enough probably to be dangerous," to which Smith responded: "Well, that's what I was wondering," before pointing out that Obama has consistently pledged his support for Israel. Less than a week later, Wurzelbacher, who McCain called a "role model" near the end of the campaign, questioned Obama's "loyalty to our country" during another appearance on Fox News.
