LONDONDERRY, N.H. — Joe the Plumber’s 15 minutes are not over.
Speaking to a crowd of 4,100 here, Sen. Barack Obama mocked his rival’s emphasis on Joe the Plumber in the final presidential debate.
“How many plumbers do you know making over a quarter of a million dollars?” he asked the crowd, arguing that average Joes would fare much better under Obama’s tax cut plan.
To hammer home how his middle-class tax cuts would help most Americans — in contrast to Sen. John McCain’s emphasis on corporate and capital-gains taxes — Obama also asked for a show of hands for who makes less than $250,000. Most of the hands in the crowd shot up.
The rally at an apple farm in this small swing state is Obama’s only public event today. He also has two fundraisers on his schedule, including a rock concert with Bruce Springstein and an appearance at the private “Al Smith” dinner at the Waldorf Astoria in Manhattan.
