McCain's Role Model Goes Rogue

Oct. 28, 2008

"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.
