Republican presidential candidate John McCain is just holding on like a boxer before he gets knocked out, comedian Chris Rock says.

Rock, an avid supporter of Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama, spoke with CNN's Larry King on Thursday. He said Obama is more grounded with your average American -- not somebody like McCain with "12 houses."

Just b/c Obama has only one house doesn't mean that he can't afford to buy 11 more, if he chooses to (which he can). He is hardly in the position to have to "worry about losing his house". Trying to make Obama look like just the avg. working stiff in the US is a joke. Puh-leez.

I wonder if Obama has 13 cars like McCain does?

The fact that McCain overinvested in a lousy "investment" like real estate shows a little something about his divine economic knowledge, eh?

That can't be right. I'm sure Chris Rock was for John Kerry last time. He didn't mention anything about "houses" then.

Yeah, chris rock said in the video he was for Kerry and Gore.

Are you saying that when one supports a candidate, its a good idea to bring up a candidate's perceived weak points?

And remember, the republicans did go after Kerry for his houses.

If you support McCain, do you talk about his weaknesses when trying to convince someone he's a better candidate?

No, he has one. A Ford.

"Obama is more grounded with your average American -- not somebody like McCain with '12 houses.'"

Is that somehow not a true statement?

Yes, they are all such Rhodes scholars...lol. I think the more successful person might be...uh more successful. Why is it a sin to have houses and cars. I am sure Chris Rock has several of each himself.
