The whole reason for pointing out how many homes McCain doesn't remember owning, is to show how OUT OF TOUCH McCain is with "regular" life...he doesn't know how much you have to make before you're "rich", he doesn't know how much gas costs at the pump, he doesn't know how many houses he has. There is NOTHING wrong in working hard and amassing a fortune (not that McCain did that), but there is A LOT wrong with the President of the United States not knowing any of the details about his own life. No wonder McCain doesn't have any specific policy plans.

The fact is that 30+% of Fox News viewers are Democrats ... intellignt, thinking Democrats of course (there are some). If you don't watch it, then you have no basis for criticism. Only +30% who watch Fox are Republicans ... this was all reported only last week. They analyzed CNN, MSNBC, FOX. Fox had more of a balance between Repubs, Dems, Inds than any other cable news network.

As for her house, it is quite amazing and absolutely fair game considering the Dems opened the stupid door about houses. Who the heck cares? I know I don't.

Still ... I'm puzzled. I distinctly remember Joe Biden saying his mother had trouble affording health insurance. He could have gotten her an awful lot of health insurance for what the house cost.

Well, since you know the definition, please tell us:

Rich - Define it.

We all watch Fox News so we can giggle at the Parrots at the office. Watch Fox News on Monday night, so you know what the buzz words and "independent" analysis will be the next day at work. It is a secret giggle.

The gov't will never make people rich, other than stealing from hard workers and giving the money to the "poor".

Financial decisions is the reason many people are in the predicament they are in, and no other reason. Many people make POOR financial decisions. Laziness is also another factor.

Ha. If any news network doesn't tow the Democratic Party Line as does, NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, CNN, MSNBC, most newspapers, etc. then you call it the Republican News Channel, but still watch it anyway. Priceless!

Faux News is without a doubt the official channel of the Republican Party. I don't think there's much dispute about that.
