ABC News Report: McCain Has 13 Cars, Obama 1
ABC News ^ | September 21, 2008 | Tahman Bradley

After the brouhaha over Sen. John McCain's struggle to recall how many houses he owns, Newsweek wondered how many cars might be parked at the presidential candidate's multiple homes.

The weekly newsmagazine checked vehicle registration records for both McCain and Sen. Barack Obama and found that when you include the candidates' spouses, McCain owns 13 cars, Obama 1.

McCain has a 2004 Cadillac CTS, a 2007 half-ton Ford pickup truck, a 1960 Willys Jeep, a 2008 Jeep Wranger among other American cars. He's got a few foreign vehicles in his fleet as well, owning a 2005 Volkswagen convertible and a 2001 Honda sedan.

The only vehicle registered in Obama's name is a 2008 Ford Escape hybrid.

So from this we can ascertain that John McCain strongly supports Michigan’s auto-industry, while 0bama does not.

Obama’s other cars are probably registered in Tony Rezko’s name.

Question to ABC: So?

McCain really owns only two cars. Cindy owns the rest -- possibly using some of them for her business.

Uhh, that is exactly the same argument we derided when made by the Kerry campaign.

Ok, so McCain is 13 times more out of touch than Obama.

>>McCain really owns only two cars.

I also have two cars. Newsweek is showing their anti-capitalism stripes. Remember when we used to celebrate people doing well?

But if you are a community organizer - maybe you ride a bike.

My husband and I own 6 cars, and our wealth is closer to Joe Biden’s than Obama’s. He just buys classics on the cheap so he can restore them. I use public transit on my commute.

I don’t give a flying camel how many cars are in John McCain’s garage, nor do I care how many cars are in what’s-his-name’s garage.

I want to know, how I, family members, and friends, are gonna pay for the gasoline to put in OUR cars if Barry becomes President of the United States, and/or the Congress-critters REALLY don’t try to drill. (selfish of me, isn’t it?)
