The plight of the homeful (Part II)

Perhaps we can just blame sundowners, but John McCain doesn’t even know how many houses he owns.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said in an interview Wednesday that he was uncertain how many houses he and his wife, Cindy, own.

“I think – I’ll have my staff get to you,” McCain told Politico in Las Cruces, N.M. “It’s condominiums where – I’ll have them get to you.”

The correct answer is at least four, located in Arizona, California and Virginia, according to his staff. Newsweek estimated this summer that the couple owns at least seven properties.

And we’re told Barack Obama is the elitist?

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Yeah, O-blah-blah owns 1 house thanks to a sweetheart deal on incredibly expensive Hyde Park property from his convicted felon pal, Tony Rezko.

    Let’s talk about O-blah-blah’s property purchase. You can read about it in the #1 Best Seller The Obama Nation by Jerome Corsi.

    Corsi has O-blah-blah totally on the defensive. O-blah-blah has so much past dirt and a paper thin resume to explain…and he cannot.

    The Republican’s will be in Denver Goldy.
    Their theme for your big show is
    A Mile High and an inch deep!!

    The “typical” voter doesn’t like shallow, overpromisin’, smilin’ thugs who affiliate with criminals and buy property from the them

    O-blah-blah—new kind of politics my ass.
    State after State is tightening up…Pennsylvania and NH the latest.

    By early November, the #1 thought in people’s mind will be O-blah-blah’s overpuffed resume. Community Organizer==President??
    I think not.

    Read Corsi’s Book and memorize it.
    You will be hearing it’s contents until election day YLB.

    What happened to the landslide you predicted??

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Goldy–
    What difference does it make how many homes someone owns as long as the were acquired legally?
    The problem is for O-blah-blah in explained his own property acquisition from Rezko.
    The problem is for O-blah-blah in explaining his work for SLUMLORD’S!
    The Problem is for O-blah-blah to explain some of his failed Community Organizing projects.
    The problem is for O-blah-blah to explain his dreadful affiliations with Wright, Ayers, Flager, Rezko and many other nutcases & crooks.

    O-blah-blah’s pattern of poor choices begs the question of who he will appoint to key positions in our Government.
    Do you think thru divine intervention, O-blah-blah will all of a sudden get better judgment in who he affiliates with??

    How many houses did the previous Democratic candidate own?

    He’d be a long time counting, and it wouldn’t be a simple answer … for very similar reasons.

    How many houses/homes does Obama have (as opposed to own)? Not the “one house” he’s playing on air today.

  7. 7

    spews:

    It’s scary to think that McCain is so out of touch that he doesn’t even know how many homes he owns. And being rich is not an excuse. I’m sure Paul Allen, Donald Trump, and the like, know how many homes they own.

    Now, I can almost understand a husband not knowing certain important things, like what stocks he’s invested in, if it’s the wife’s responsibility to handle investing, and he has no interest in that kind of stuff, but come on, a house? Not knowing how many homes you own is not something you can dismissively wave your hand at and say “the little lady handles that.” That’s not a sign of elitism or excessive wealth. That’s a sign of the beginning stage of dementia.

    Corsi’s book repeats nonsense that even he knows is untrue. The book has been denounced as horseshit by any reviewer with an ounce of objectivity. It is telling that you would buy the book. No one in the reality-based world would waste time reading such soiled tissue. You are a piece of work. Obama has more character and integrity in his shit than you or your candidate have all together.

Corsi is doing the Public vetting of the Unknown Politician/Community Organizer…some thing the MSM failed to do. I like that it is happening now…rather than 3 months ago. Had the MSM done their jobs timely, this would have been vetter long ago. How come Hillary isn’t rushing to O-blah-blah’s defense?? Because she wants to run against McCain in 2012, that’s why.
    It’s called P-O-L-I-T-I-C-S!

    What’s more – numerous people have gone on TV and for once used the appropriate language straight out calling this dicklicker Corsi a liar. Now if the shit in his book were true, wouldn’t he sue to protect his good name? No – it’s not true and he knows he is a liar which is why CynCyn and the “GOP” love him – they’re all liars too.

    New NBC/WSJ Poll out. Analysis:

    *** McCain’s weaknesses: While McCain has cut Obama’s lead in half, the Arizona senator still faces some steep challenges — challenges that his campaign has yet to address. For one thing, 77% believe that McCain would closely follow President Bush’s policies, which is unchanged since March. NBC/WSJ co-pollster Neil Newhouse (R) says that if one of the McCain camp’s goals this summer was to distance McCain from Bush, “that wasn’t achieved.”

    Do you really think this measures up to the more important issues like O-blah-blah’s kindergarten resume and lack of qualifications to be President?

    O-blah-blah is THE most Liberal US Senator per his Voting Record. That matters too.

    You KLOWNS are grasping at straws to deflect from issues that matter.

    And you bet…O-blah-blah’s dreadful choices of who he affiliates with (Wright, Flager, Ayers, Rezko) matters too.

    So does just about everything in that book, Obama Nation. It’s amazing a guy who protested technicalties on petitions of fellow Democratic Candidates for State Senate in a 90% Democrat District in the mid-90’s could be a rock star Presidential Candidate in 2008….with zero accomplishments.
    And have no one expose his Chicago Thug Politics background. Did you real think O-blah-blah would never be held accountable?

    Rentals really don’t pencil out unless we have 5% annual appreciation…minimum…because of the high property values. I make approx. 1.1% on value of those 3 properties. I would be better off selling them and putting the proceeds in a money-market. But the folks I rent to take good care of the houses and are can-do people if any repairs are necessary….sooooooooo.

    I could perfectly understand if McCain had responded as follows:

    “Well, we own our main house in Arizona, and the house in Virginia we use when I’m in Washington D.C., plus two vacation properties – one in Arizona, the other in the Carribian. Of course, Cindy may own other properties as business investments, but those are her business and I’ll have to check with her on that….”

    That would have been a resonable answer. But that’s not the one he gave.

    Sure, it’s hard to imagine that in a difficult financial environment, where falling home prices and rising interest rates are threatening many homeowners (of their only home) with forecloure, that a candidate who owns four homes can “feel their pain”. But it IS possible, in a hypothetical sense.

    But not for John McCain. He not only doesn’t know how many homes he owns, he seems to have been hit with a “senior moment” when the question was asked.

    Seriously, has John McCain ever really owned a home in his own right? My guess is that he and his first wife might have bought a home before he became a POW, but they might not have done so because frequent duty-station changes make owning a home while in the military is difficult venture – even if you can get financing.

    So is it possible that John McCain has lived entirely in government housing the first part of his life, and then in houses financed by his wife for the remainder of his wife?

    Such a person might not have ever gone through the difficult process of trying to find a home in a good neighborhood near good schools at a price he can afford, much less having to go through the difficult process of applying and qualifying for a mortgage.

    For McCain, it would be easy for him to dismiss borrowers caught up on the current mortgage mess as having been “architects of their own disaster, taking inordinate risks to buy a home above their ability to pay for it”. He would be more likely to agree with the financial denizens who, at country-club dinners, complain that “Hey, we just processed the applications, bundled the mortgages into financial investments which were sold to worker’s 401(k) plans, it’s not our fault if the borrowers signed them and the 401(k) plans were stupid enough to buy them!”

    Given the state of the Phoenix housing market right now, I wonder how popular McCain would be if he REALLY did some STRAIGHT TALKING about his REAL views on the current housing crisis.

    You know (and I know), it doesn’t matter what you think.

    What matters is that the regular Americans out there, the ones who are working to pay a mortgage on the one home they’re lucky enough to own if they have been able to afford one, and those who can’t, are now realizing that the guy who doesn’t even know how many homes USED AS RESIDENCES that he owns, and the guy who thinks you’re not “rich” unless you have $5 million or more, and the guy who thinks that it’s not so hard to get around in a time of high fuel prices because you can fly there, and the guy who has never been without government-provided health insurance, housing, and education in his life, are all the SAME GUY — John McCain. And John McCain doesn’t know SHIT about how things are for the real Americans.

    McCain has to ask his staff what he had for breakfast this morning. The only thing he knows all day long is that he’d like to start ANOTHER war even though we haven’t even fiunally withdrawn from the two we’re fightin now–China, Russia, Iran, maybe all three.

    John McCain thinks the economy is just fine, and wants to continue the policies that got us where we are. I understand this. Of course the economy looks good from the window of your private jet, as you try and fail yet again to remember how many houses you own or which one you’re flying to. Meanwhile, in the REAL US economy:

    Inflation is rising. The U.S. economy is currently experiencing “the worst 12 months of inflation in almost three decades.”

    Real wages are declining. Americans are experiencing a “de facto pay cut.” “Almost everything costs more, even as [Americans] have less money to pay for it.”

    Unemployment is increasing. Americans have experienced “seven consecutive monthly declines in employment.”

    Cost of food is rising. Food prices are quickly increasing and even school lunches across the country will be more expensive in the coming year.

    Optimism about economy is declining. “Optimism in the U.S. economy among CEOs of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies” is at a 16-year low. Americans are similarly pessimistic.

    Foreclosures are still increasing. Home foreclosures were up 55 percent over last year in July and “17 [percent] of all homes for sale in the U.S. are repossessed properties.”

    What country does John McCain live in? Don’t ask him, because he has to ask his staff.”

    If you work for a living, or say, you are a soldier serving your country, your top tax rate is 28%

    But Cindy and Dorf McCain only pay 15%, the top tax rate on investment income.

    What a great country! Support the troops!

    @67 The Republicans wanted taxes eliminated for capital gains and dividends. I recall that they were waving flags and crosses at the time, crying how taxation was so unfair to the rich.

    1988 Dukakis rides a tank. He was up 17 points.

    2008 McCain states that he will institute a draft, but does not know how many houses he owns.

    Just in case you fucking morons haven’t been listening, the only politicians to propose a draft are ass licking Democrats. It sure must suck to have to support that.

    “Just in case you fucking morons haven’t been listening”

    This explains why Republicans cannot understand this blog. Here is the secret: You read it.

    If all you do is watch your computer monitor and “listen” all you will hear is the voices in your head. In this case it is the voice of Dorf McCain declaring that if elected, he will institute a draft.

    Read the blog….do not listen to the blog.

    Bash McCain all you want. Right or wrong, he’s a known quantity. Obama, in many people’s minds, isn’t. People fear an Obama presidency. I think a lot of people, come election day, will chicken out on choosing Obama and hold their nose and go for McCain.

    Yeah. Right-wing and/or Racist people fear an Obama Presidency.

    They’re scared of their own shadow and hate it to boot.

    I understand that Troll is a republican pretending to be a Democrat but he’s just so fucking bad at it I have to laugh.

    Back on topic – note how many republican ass rapers (including Troll) have tried to change the subject here?

    FlipFlop McSame doesn’t even know how many homes he owns? This is BAAAD for you righties. This might be a defining moment of an already lackluster campaign.

    You motherfuckers are DOOOOOOMED! Get used to it!

    @79

    YOU are trying to change the subject! What political party do you think the man who poisoned those trees belongs to? Seattle (thankfully), is a Democratic-majority city. So don’t you think the odds are that he is a Democrat? The answer has to be yes. So my question is, why are rich Democrats poisoning trees along the Burke Gilman trail in order to improve their view? And why is Goldy remaining silent over this scandal that I have dubbed Aborgate?!? Is it because the tree killer is a Democrat?

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Remember when Starbucks Leftist CEO Howard Schultz cut down all those trees in the Seattle Park?
    Think he paid a $100,000 Fine.
    The only thing is he improved his property value by $250,000!
    Typical Leftist Elitist!

    Not knowing how many houses one owns is amusing and worthy of some good-natured ribbing. But there’s nothing at all amusing about allowing a known, corrupt and convicted Chicago political machine influence-peddler plunk down $600K to help you buy your own house. That’s just plain wrong. And Obama in the end loses, if he wants to go down this road. His dealings with Rezko are just too crooked-looking and he’ll not want the american people to think he can be bought, even while it looks as though he already has been.

  72. 86

    ByeByeGOP spews:

    @85 if you had any proof that a crime was committed you should take it to the authorities. Of course like all right wing turds you’re pushing smoke out your ass. Unlike FlipFlop McSame who was tied up in a criminal enterprise like the Keating Five…President Obama has never been charged or formally accused of violating any rule or law by buying his small (compared to McSame mansions bought with lobbyists money) home. You right wingers have pushed the Rezko thing from day one and it hasn’t stuck. You’re desperate going to the old play book because you don’t have anything.

    Now back to the guy who can’t remember how many homes he has….this guy IS the guy we’re successfully painting as out of touch with America. President Obama’s ads on this are already hitting home runs in the fly over states.

  73. 87

    What'sittoya spews:

    *86, sorry that you’ve chosen to look past the obvious. Rezko has been convicted for his unsavory activities. He has reasons for doing what he does with people like Obama. It’s called “buying influence.” And Obama let himself be bought by a disreputable figure in the Chicago political machine. Most people are able to recognize the extremely poor judgment on Obama’s part.

  74. 88

    ByeByeGOP spews:

    Asslick at @87 list with specificity every law that President Obama has been charged with violating in referernce to the Rezko deal. List every Senate rule he was charged with violating. And list every conviction stemming from those alleged violations by President Obama.

    ……sound of crickets chirping….

    other than right wing ass swill like you trying to score high school debating points – this bullshit is going nowhere. You cunts have been beating this drum for 19 months and NEVER got any traction with it. President Obama was neither charged or convicted with any crime or rule violation in government.

    Now let’s look at a REAL scandal that FlipFlop McSame was knee-deep in – the Keating Five where he WAS charged. Now his republican pals let him off the hook – making a further mockery of justice. . . but he was CHARGED – no charges whatsoever in this case.

    But keep whipping this horse boy. If this is all you got – then you are in deeper shit than you realize.
