That's rich

Barry Hussein Obama's new ad complains that McCain is somehow too rich to become preident. That's pretty amazing coming from a guy who made $4M last year and owns a house that he paid close to $1M for. It's also quite rich coming from a guy from the same party as some of the richest people in America including:


The top three wealthiest senators are Democrats: John Kerry of Massachusetts, with a net worth of at least $164 million; Herb Kohl of Wisconsin, with a net worth of at least $111 million, and John "Jay" Rockefeller of West Virginia, with an estimated net worth of at least $82 million.

And

In 2003, Feinstein was ranked the fifth wealthiest senator, with an estimated net orth of $26 million.By 2005 her net worth had increased to between $43 million and 99 million.

And

Jane Harriman (D-CA)
Net Worth: From $222,175,772 to $596,678,002Ranks 1st among all members of the House


In fact if you look here, you see that John McCain is #17 on the richest US politicians. Who is Number 16 you ask? Why none other than one Nancy Pelosi.

And people wonder why the politicians are out of touch with society. Go figure. No offense, but this includes your boy McCain. Please note that I will not be voting for either Osama or McCain.

My boy? Have you read this blog at all over the last few months? I have been beating up McCain as much as Obama.

However on this issue Obama is wrong and hypocritical at that.

I agree reagrding the Osama hypocrisy and apologies regarding the McCain comment.

Do you agree with the "out of touch with society?"

Final comment, I may end up writing in Ron Paul. More than likely, it will not change the outcome, only facilitate a statement.
