I found it amazing earlier this year when Hillary Clinton and John McCain double teamed Barack Obama because he was out of touch with the average person. I think it’s hilarious that yesterday McCain couldn’t answer the simple question how many houses do you own.
I know, it’s hard. Even I always forget our house in Montserrat, but hey. If you were to ask some women how many shoes they own – I understand it’s hard to answer. Ask me how many websites I have, I’d have to count. But most people don’t collect houses. By the way, the answer to how many houses does he own? Seven. Sorry, I mean at least seven. It’s at least because McCain couldn’t answer, and he directed the question to his staff, who said at least four, and it was left to a watch dog group to report that it was actually seven. 7! If you’re keeping score, that would be 2 more homes than the last four American Presidents combined.
In response to all of this the McCain camp is worried. They’re warning that the gloves could come off. We could hear about Obama’s affiliations (that’s double speak for Rev. Wright.) So because their candidate is senile, clueless, and out of touch, we’re going to hear about an unrelated subject to distract people of all of this. And the reason? Because people who will vote for McCain are simply looking for any reason not to vote for the better candidate. Because of this, the McCain strategy is one of misdirection; distraction.
“Hey, I don’t know how many homes I own, but I can run a $3 trillion budget. Vote for me!”
