Why It Doesn't Matter How Many Homes John McCain's Family Owns

John McCain's wealthy wife may own several homes (though apparently they don't "live" in all of them; some of them are just investment properties) and Joe Biden thinks there is something wrong with that.

However, most folks won't care how many homes the Arizona Senator and presumptive Republican Presidential nominee owns or lives in. Despite the class envy the Obama bin Biden campaign is seeking to stir up, folks will remember that once John McCain had one home - one he lived in for five years - the "Hanoi Hilton" torture prison he was held in as a prisoner of war during the Vietnam War. A prison he could of got out of early because of his privilege as the son of a ranking US Military officer but which McCain refused so his compatriates could get out before him.

Next: Obama's Shady House Purchase

Clearly, you're entirely missing the points.

McCain had no idea how many homes he owned, but Obama knew right away.

The fact that he has so many homes that he doesn't know the count hurts his claim that Obama is the elitist who is out of touch with the needs and concerns of average people.

So what it boils down to is whether Obama is the elitist because he's infinately smarter than McCain, went to a better school, and got better grades, or is McCain the elitist because he has infinately more money, probably married for selfish interests, hangs out with elites, takes contributions from elites, and has more assets that he can count.

"Obama bin Biden?" Mayor Sam has become the most pathetic right-wing smear site on the web. Too bad, I remember when it was interesting and occasionally insightful. Now it just needs to crawl into its hole and die.

That's a logical assumption for Madonna. I believe she and John McCain were in the same graduating class, but she failed poli-sci miserably.

Another important number is how many FELONS helped Obama get HIS home and a slice of the property next door.

One.

Not too tough to remember. And you should remember it, too, because you'll be hearing a lot of it.

Did I mention that Obama got his home at $300,000 BELOW MARKET VALUE?

Obama himself called it a "boneheaded move" of his.

You'll be hearing a lot about that, too.

Wet Spot had it right: 7 of the top 10 wealthiest electeds are Democrats, including the Clintons, Kennedy and Kerry, whose wife Heinz-Kerry makes the McCains look poor.

Nothing more hypocritical and obnoxious than super-wealthy Democrats whose sense of guilt from getting more than they know they've deserved, means they tax others who need to worry about every dollar -- many ARE Republican because they need to worry about every dollar and don't have enough money to play the liberal guilt game.

Besides, McCain's not knowing how many homes "they" own just shows he's not a gold-digger for Cindy's family money -- those were her assets.

More importantly: the way Obama's dissing the Clintons is going to bite him in the ass bigtime. I went to a Hollywood event recently where Bill made a surprise appearance, and everybody, all those big money people, LOVED him. Gerry Brown and the rest were barely noticed by comparison -- you may hate him, but he's got that electric factor in person or at any big event.

Speaking of homes: Obama's spiritual advisor of 20 years, humble man of God Rev. Wright, has a 10,000 square foot house paid for by his church, using their tax-free status, under a variety of shade transfer deals.

When you have these big-ass millionaires like the Clintons, Dianne Feinstein, Teddy Kennedy, John Kerry, John Edwards, Al Gore, etc. going on about John McCain's wife being wealthy it is so incredibly hypocritical.

Especially when many of these people became millionaires off their government service whereas McCain's wife's wealth is based upon a family business.

Anyway, it doesn't matter how much money of them have. This class warfare stuff the Democrats are trying to stir up is going to bite them. Most folks admire or at least envy the rich.

ever since you guys got ranked as a liberal blog you've gone out of your way to spout the right-wing talking points. You are SOOOO genuine and real in your convictions higby, way to go.

Please tell me how DiFi, Kennedy, Clinton and Kerry made their money off their government service?

DiFi is rich because she married rich nearly 30 years ago (and was born to rich parents and had married a rich man prior - he died...no cheating involved)

We all know how the Kennedy's made their money...and it wasn't in politics.

Clintons made their money by speaking engagements on his behalf (after leaving office) and by writing books.

And Kerry was wealthy and then married into money.

Once again...please explain how this is different from McBitches money? Maybe because he can't write a book, let alone pick one up...

If you or your family had the skill to work hard, save money, make good investments and wind up with 9 homes then good for you. It does not matter what your ethnicity and race is.

I'm not a fan of McCain, but I admire and respect him for surviving in that hell hole for 5 1/2 years.

So what if he has 7 homes?

For what he put up with so we could be free, he can have (& forget) as many homes as he wants.

The Obama campaign is pathetic.

They should have the wind at their backs, since this is (was?)a Democratic year.

And yet . . .the race is still tight, the Clintons are still wreaking havoc, the women and blue-collar voters haven't warned to Obama, and "The Messiah" can't figure out who the bad guys are in the invasion of Georgia.

And his people want to harp on how many homes McCain owns?

When Israel takes out Iranian nuclear reactors in late October, this race will be over.

Sorry, democrats, you screwed up BIG TIME by nominating the wrong candidate.
