Lost Count of Million Dollar Homes

Presidential hopeful John McCain can’t remember how many multi-million dollar homes he has. 

The media questioned McCain yesterday about just how many multimillion dollar homes he owns. And just what was McCain’s response? “I think – I’ll have my staff get to you,” he said. “It’s condominiums where – I’ll have them get to you.”

The fact that McCain couldn’t remember how many mansions he has proves how elitist and divorced from economic reality he truly is. That’s why McCain admitted economics is not his strongest suit, and why he offered a budget plan that would create the largest debt in our country since World War II. That’s why he proposed tax hikes on employer-based health care, doesn’t know the price of gas, and has no appreciation for the struggles of hard-working Americans facing foreclosure.

This reminds me of when George Bush, Sr. didn’t know the price of a carton of milk or how to use a supermarket checkout counter machine. It was a story the media seized because it illustrated just how out of touch a candidate could be on the economy.
