Democrats are having fun with John McCain’s inability to tell the press how many homes he owns.
"I understand that Sen. McCain was asked yesterday this question, ‘how many houses do you own?,’ and he couldn’t answer that question. He couldn’t count high enough apparently to even know how many houses he owns," said [Obama V.P. prospect and Virginia Gov. Tim] Kaine.
But it seems that Kaine and the rest forgot, as usual, to ask the most pertinent question of all: Which is worse, not knowing the exact number of investment properties one owns or to have, in effect, taken a kickback on a home-purchase deal from a known felon?
McCain camp via Time:
“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 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?”
For Obama that’s like taking an Olympic volleyball spike to the face. Point to McCain, handily.
