I thought this was kinda funny...I'm sure some won't...
Not a big deal I guess, but it makes me wonder how they can relate to the middle class

By Michael D. Shear

First it was his seven houses. Now, Sen. John McCain has to explain his fleet of 13 cars.



According to a Newsweek item published online today, McCain and his
wife, Cindy, own more than a dozen cars, including three electric
bubble-shaped cars, called GEM's that the magazine says are popular in
retirement communities.



But the ones getting him into trouble are the foreign-made cars.
According to the magazine, the McCains own a Honda sedan and a
Volkswagen convertible -- despite having once claimed to always buy
American-made cars.



In an interview with Detroit station WXYZ-TV, McCain bragged that
"I've bought American literally all my life and I'm proud." That was
after explaining to the anchor that his daughter, Meghan, bought her
own Toyota Prius.




UAW President Ron Gettelfinger, in a conference call organized by
the Democratic party, blasted McCain on Sunday for not being truthful
with voters.




"When he's in the midwest, he tells voters he supports the
industry," Gettelfinger told reporters. "That's really a nice campaign
line. But it turns out that John McCain wasn't being straight with the
people of Detroit."




Gettelfinger cast McCain as an enemy of auto workers for supporting trade deals that he said would ship jobs overseas.



"We need a president who's committed to rebuilding the auto industry
in America, not a president who buys foreign cars and then falsifies
the truth when he thinks auto workers aren't watching," he said.




The magazine reported that the only car in McCain's name is a
Cadillac. The others are in Cindy McCain's name. Another Japanese car
-- a Lexus that Cindy McCain drives with the plates 'Ms BUD' -- is
registered to the beer distribution company that she heads.



McCain spokesman Brian Rogers said the senator's comments to the
Detroit TV station were referring to the one car in his name: the
Cadillac. "And [he] has in the past driven Corvettes and other American
cars," Rogers said. McCain aides said some of the 13 cars are actually
used by their four children and others are "recreational

vehicles and pickups and such" that they use on their vacation property in Sedona.

Newsweek noted that the Obamas own a single car--a 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid.

If I had the money Cindy has, I'd damn sure own more than 13, and none of them would be bubble cars.[img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img]

I'd be collecting...............................

ETA, just the two of us and we own three.....................

And as I said I don't think there is any political ramifications here...but rather another disconnected republican with everyday people...his gaffes lately have only emphasized that...


Vote McCain. When War and Poverty aren't enough.
Vote McCain. Because everything's perfect just the way it is!!
Vote McCain Securing Personal Loans With Taxpayer Dollars
Vote McCain/Palin: Because after Quayle and Cheney, we just stopped caring.
