John McCain has a lot of houses. How many?
He can't keep track.
Yesterday, when asked by reporters how many homes he owns, McCain responded, "I think -- I'll have my staff get to you."
This is the latest in a string of striking and revealing comments by McCain. Recently he said that from his perspective "the fundamentals of our economy are strong" right now, then he said that millionaires are not rich as long as they're making less than $5 million a year.
Today, the Obama campaign launched a television ad exposing just how out-of-touch McCain is with the realities American families face.
In an economy where millions of Americans are sinking under high mortgages and rising gas prices, we can't afford another president who doesn't get it.
In John McCain's world, the limits on campaign contributions should rise with inflation, but the minimum wage should not. In fact, he believes there shouldn't be any increase at all in the minimum wage.
How can he help the middle class when he doesn't know who they are? And how can he fix the economy if he doesn't know it's broken?
McCain's money may have bought him a lot of houses, but there's one house we can't afford to let McCain add to his list: the White House. Not on our watch.
Please watch the Obama campaign's ad and write a letter to your local papers about how out-of-touch John McCain is with economic realities:
