Manchester, NH– Today, the Obama campaign asked New Hampshire families to send pictures and videos to http://my.barackobama.com/nhoutoftouch of themselves outside of their homes, describing how many houses they own, jobs they work, or what their heating costs are. John McCain said in an interview on Wednesday that he’s lost track of many houses he has. A comment like that helps to explain why McCain still thinks “the fundamentals of our economy are strong” and why he’s just offering more of the same economic policies that we’ve gotten from President Bush for the last eight years.
“No wonder John McCain keeps voting against funding the home heating assistance program--if he doesn’t even know how many houses he has, how can he relate to New Hampshire families struggling to heat theirs?” said Sandra Abrevaya, New Hampshire Communications Director.
The national campaign has also released a new 30-second TV ad today, Out of Touch, discussing just how out of touch John McCain is with the struggles of everyday people. The ad highlights John McCain’s “Country Club Economics” and his desire to offer more of the same economic policies we’ve gotten from President Bush. Senator McCain can’t even remember how many homes he owns and thinks anyone making less than $5 million is middle class, which explains why he has little relief to offer working families struggling to make ends meet.
