McCain campaign official Brian Rogers responding to a question about McCain's numerous homes....
"This is a guy who lived in one house for five and a half years -- in prison," referring to the prisoner of war camp that McCain was in during the Vietnam War. Link
I mean, come on old dude....it was forty years ago, right? It simply cannot be the response to every one of your embarassing situations or eff-ups. The former prisoner of war stuff, I mean. All Americans take their hats off to veterans, POW veterans even more, I suppose. But good granny.....how in the blazes can something that happened 40 years ago be the answer to every contradiction, every flip-flop, every embarassment, today....to the point where McCain is now using his POW experience to respond to the question of how many homes he and Mrs. Buffalo Chip own.
Now correct me if I'm wrong for, you know, asking. ...but does McCain's 1968-1973 stint in North Vietnam have anything to do with the 8 homes he owns now? Does the real estate company Cindy McCain uses go by the name of POW Realty, or some similar, like, coincidence?
Or is McCain and his Rovian sacramentalist campaign.....angry....because of those very bad people who asked Mr. Maverick how many homes he owned? Could that have been the reason why McCain's campaign responded with the default "POW" answer? How dare those little people ask how many homes he and Mrs. Straight Maverick Talk Regular American, own?
Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack about his speeches. "All he can do is give speeches." Remember Hillary saying, "All Obama did was give a speech"? Well....all McCain and his campaign can do is talk about something that happened 40 years ago, which has nothing whatsoever to do with his qualifications to become president. And sure as hell, that POW time has nothing to do with McCain's ownership of 8 expensive homes. Those 8 expensive homes are the answer to the question, "Is McCain a regular guy?" Kind of obvious, isn't it? A regular guy doesn't own 8 homes. McCain, like Bush before him, is said to be America's "everyman" by GOP hacks and compromised Knee Padders (redundancy?), in spite of the total ridiculousness of such a statement.
Here's Rogers again from the out-of-touch McCain campaign....
"In terms of who's an elitist, I think people have made a judgment that John McCain is not an arugula-eating, pointy headed professor-type based on his life story."
Dangerous, don't you think, for a campaign to talk about "pointy heads" when their candidate has one jowl of his face the size of Rhode Island?
Tell me, what "judgment" will Americans make about McCain when they find this out....
The McCains increased their budget for household employees from $184,000 in 2006 to $273,000 in 2007, according to John McCain’s tax returns. Link
So, how is it that a, you know, regular American, got to the point where he spends more money on butlers and maids per year than 4 average American families, combined, EARN per year?
Ross Perot would later say, "After he came home, he walked with a limp, she [Carol McCain] walked with a limp. So he threw her over for a poster girl with big money from Arizona [Cindy McCain, his current wife] and the rest is history."
McCain, an elitist? No, hell no. What McCain really is.....is a burnt-out, cynical opportunist, like W., who never liked bookwork or learning (5th from bottom of his class), couldn't fly planes very well (crashed four), had and still has a bad temper, didn't honor his marriage, divorced and married a fortune, and now is running to become president to make up for his utter failure to become an admiral like his daddy and grandaddy.
McCain is a more dangerous George W. Bush rerun.
