Obama was just scorching today, sticking to the "out of touch" theme illustrated by McCain's "How many houses?" moment. Here he is in Chesapeake, Virginia:Barack Obama
YouTube linkI loved the subtle change in the way that he describes John McCain. Just when you expect him to say that he honors John McCain...he instead says McCain has a "compelling biography." It's a small but significant change, and the way he delivered it had me cracking up.
Now I suppose if you've got 7, maybe 8 houses, the economy looks fundamentally sound to you. But if you've only got one house, and you're having trouble making the mortgage payment, and the plant's about to close in your community, then the economy looks awful different.
Now I make this point not to simply give John McCain a hard time. It's indicative of a different world view about what's happening in America. Because if your president doesn't hear what's going in in your life, and doesn't see what's happening in your life, that president is not going to fighting for you.
And you need a president that's going to be fighting for you, and that's why I'm running for President of the United States of America.
