McCain unsure 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 a Politico analysis later in the day found McCain's family owns at least eight properties, according to property and tax records, as well as interviews....

Excuse me, but how can a person running for the office of President of the United States NOT know how many houses he owns????? I personally know that I own one and it's not that hard to remember.

Happy Weekend.

I told my son last night that McCain believes the middle class ends at about $5 million. He didn't believe me so I pulled that clip up on YouTube for him...

Of course, his defense is that when he was a POW he didn't have a house...I'm very tired of him trying to play that card everytime he gets caught with his feet in his mouth!
