You know you’re really freakin rich when you don’t know how many homes you own.
[quote] (CNN) – Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign used a new attack ad Thursday to pound Sen. John McCain for his failure to answer a question about how many homes he owns.
Sen. John McCain has faced Democratic criticism that he’s out of touch with average Americans.
The Democratic candidate hammered home the same point on the campaign trail in Virginia as the McCain camp battled back.
"Somebody asked John McCain, ‘How many houses do you have?’ and he said, ‘I’m not sure, I’ll have to check with my staff,’ " Obama said Thursday in Virginia. "True quote. ‘I’m not sure, I’ll have to check with my staff.’ So they asked his staff and he said, ‘At least four.’ "[/quote]
