John McCain’s Houses—Nobody Got It Right!

“I’ll have to refer the question to my staff; I’ll get back to youi later on that.” Or words to that effect. Everyone, EVERYONE I heard on the talking-heads shows missed what had happened. His hesitation was NOT due to faulty memory or being out of touch with his personal finances. In the context of that question, a man wanting to get on the right side of every issue that resonates with the electorate in a forum context———I know for certain, as I perceived the situation: JOHN McCAIN WAS EMBARRASSED TO SAY THE NUMBER OF HOUSES HE WOULD HAVE TO OWN UP TO, FOR HE KNEW HOW IT WOULD SOUND TO THE GREAT NUMBERS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE IN TROUBLE.

That was another instance of many where John McCain has demagogued it. Not one commentator got it right. That context was very significant, and JMcC knew exactly how many houses he owns and saw in his own mind an embarrassing, truthful answer, about which he was forced to dissemble.

McCain’s discomfort with that question should also become the voters’ discomfort with John McCain.
