Democrats eager to portray John McCain as out of touch with average Americans and as a flip-flopper seized on a report Sunday the Arizona senator and his wife, Cindy, own more than a dozen cars — including several foreign-made automobiles. [clip]
“The last thing we need is a presidential candidate who undermines autoworkers, and these days it seems that John McCain is doing just exactly that,” he said. “When he’s in the Midwest, he tells voters he supports the industry, when he is in other states he brags about buying a foreign car, as he did with the Prius.”
So, having 13 cars is “out of touch,” but buying only 11 US made cars is undermining the U.S. autoworker. So, is McCain not supporting the automakers enough, or too much? You can’t have it both ways.
