John McCain is Housin’

John McCain has no idea how many homes he owns, which to me isn’t a huge issue by itself, I’m sure a lot of men married to ultra-rich women have no idea how many homes their wives own.  The issue with McCain’s houses is that the McCain campaign has been trying to portray Obama as an elitist because he “eats arugula” and “vacations in Hawaii” but the fact of the matter is McCain is far more of an elitist than Obama ever could be.

Barack used the money he made off his first book to pay off his student loans. Paying off student loans is something a lot of middle class Americans can relate to. McCain spends more on hired help for his homes every year than the average person spends on a home.  McCain is out of touch with the American people and that is becoming more and more apparent by the day.  McCain has used Obama’s attacks on this issue as a reason to bring up Tony Rezko.  The situation with Rezko is a little strange and I’m sure Obama regrets it, but I don’t think McCain should start talking about scandals, remember the Keating Five?  John McCain was involved in a scandal that many retired people lost their life savings in, Obama saved some money on a piece of property.  I think the lesson for McCain here is people who live in glass houses (no matter how many of them they own) shouldn’t throw stones, unless of course they were a POW in which case they can use that as a rebuttal for anything.
