Earlier today, Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama attacked Senator John McCain for owning more than one home. Rather than provide a long, meandering answer in my best Obama-like fashion, here is my one word assessment: Rookie.
From the McCain campaign spokesman Brian Rogers:
“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?
“The reality is that Barack Obama’s plans to raise taxes and opposition to producing more energy here at home as gas prices skyrocket show he’s completely out of touch with the concerns of average Americans.”
Yeah, what he said.
