McCain said struggling homeowners need to skip vacations while McCains were purchasing 2nd beach condo

Original post made by Tone-deaf John, Stanford, on Aug 22, 2008

In April, Cindy McCain told her interviewer that the reason they needed a second beach condo in the Coronado building was that the first was too crowded because her kids were staying there and as a result she "couldn't get in the place."

Obama lives in a Chicago Mansion and doesn't help his brother in Kenya that lives in a shack. Who cares? The real question is whether either of these guys will run our country well.

Obama is an economic socialist.

McCain says he doesn't know much about the economy.

I'll take McCain - at least he may listen to the advice of a capitalist. We need more capitalism and less socialism to survive in an incresingly competitive global economy.

Isn't it odd how conservatives pretend to love small government while blowing trillions on pointless, unwinnable wars.

By largely ignoring Bin Laden, hesitating when approving bombing runs on his meetings, Bill Clinton set us up for 9/11. Thanks.

The guy's wife is loaded and likes to buy houses. Wouldn't we all! Ready- who cares.

We had 8 years of peace and prosperity with the Clintons.

Now look where we are.

McCain's wife does matter.

A normal person would reject a presidential candidate whose wife orders condos like she orders cappuccinos.

To nice try,

Come on-when has it ever matter what a president's wife did or say.

I'm voting for the next president, not his wife. Oh by the way, I'm voting for Barack. But, I could care less what his wife buys or does.

did you vote for Kerry, check out how many homes his wife owns. you are, as most obamatans, sadly misinformed and uneducated on the issues that count

The problem with John McCain is not just Cindy, it's John McCain himself who is out of touch with the real world.

Aw, c'mon. McCain's just another regular guy who can't remember how many houses he owns.
