McCain vs. Obama: How Many Houses Do You Have?

Posted by Ryan on August 21, 2008

Did you know that McCain is out of touch with regular Americans?  It’s true, I heard The One say it today.

According to the Obama campaign, McCain is so out of touch that he doesn’t even know how many homes he has, while at the same time thinks “rich” starts at around $5 million (see video at 1:35 for the remark and 1:52 for his prediction that it would be taken out of context like Obama is doing), making “middle-class” be around $3 million to McCain.

Great!  Do the Obama people really want to go there?  So, how many homes does Obama have?  How many were sold to him by perp Tony Rezko and his people?  Surprisingly, the McCain spokesman Brian Rogers was smart enough to rope-a-dope Obama with a great and swift response:

Does a guy who made more than $4 million last year, just got back from vacation on a private beach in Hawaii and bought his own million-dollar mansion with the help of a convicted felon [Tony Rezko] really want to get into a debate about houses?  Does a guy who worries about the price of arugula and thinks regular people ‘cling’ to guns and religion in the face of economic hardship really want to have a debate about who’s in touch with regular Americans?


Obama’s campaign looks more desperate everyday, plus the McCain campaign consistently has pleasantly surprised me thus far in August.  There might just be “hope” for this November!
