How many houses do you own? Most Americans could answer that question quite easily.
But John McCain couldn't remember when asked by reporters. It's actually kind of ridiculous. He paused and said, "I think—I'll have my staff get to you."
The correct answer? At least seven.
John McCain is way out of touch with regular Americans. It is abundantly clear that McCain does not understand what most Americans are going through right now. It was recently reported that he wears $520 shoes on the campaign trail—more than some families pay each month for food or rent.
This past week, McCain and Obama were asked what constitutes "rich." Obama said, "If you are making more than $250,000, then you are in the top 3, 4 percent of this country...You are doing well." McCain answered, "I think if you're just talking about income, how about $5 million?"
Not only does McCain not possess the temperment to be president, he doesn't have a frame of reference or the empathy.
