OK, Grandpa Simpson, I mean John McCain, was asked a fairly straightforward question. How many homes do you own? His response? "I think — I'll have my staff get to you, It's condominiums where — I'll have them get to you."
So, the guy running for President, who has been trying to paint his opponent as an "elitist" doesn't even friggin know how many homes he and his $100 million heiress wife own! It is SEVEN, by the way.
Of course this is coming from the guy who said making 5 million a year is the threshold for being "rich". So earning 4 million is middle class?
Obama came out swinging
"Yesterday, [John McCain] was asked again what do you think about the economy, he said I think the economy is fundamentally strong," said Obama. "Now this puzzled me. I was confused what he meant. But then there was another interview where somebody asked John McCain how many houses do you have and he said 'I'm not sure. I'll have to check with my staff.' True quote. 'I'm not sure ill have to check with my staff.' So they asked his staff and they said, 'at least four.' At least four. Now think about that. I guess if you think that being rich means you make $5 million and if you don't know how many houses you have then it is not surprising that you think the economy is fundamentally strong. But if you are like me and you've got one house, or if you are like the millions of people struggling now to keep up with your mortgage payments, you might have a different perspective. By the way the answer is John McCain has seven homes."
