Cindy McCain says she's offended at being called rich

Cindy McCain tells Stephanopoulos that Obama Offended Her

August 30, 2008 2:07 PM

ABC News' George Stephanopoulos reports: Democrats' attacks on her family's wealth are unfair and offensive, Cindy McCain said today in an interview airing tomorrow on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos."

For nearly two weeks, Democrats have repeatedly hit Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., for saying he is unaware of how many houses he owns, calling the presumptive Republican presidential nominee out of touch with everyday Americans. In his acceptance speech at the Democratic convention on Thursday, Democratic nominee Barack Obama turned up the heat on McCain, saying he "doesn't know" about the lives of middle-class Americans.

"I'm offended by Barack Obama saying that about my husband," said McCain's wife Cindy.
When asked if Obama went too far in his criticism of McCain, Cindy responded, "I do. I do. I really do."

McCain also said beer the distributorship her father built, which is the source of much her family's wealth, typifies the American Dream.

"My father had nothing. He and my mother sold everything they had to raise $10,000," she said. "I'm proud of what my dad and my mother did and what they built and left me. And I intend to carry their legacy as long as I can."

More of the exclusive interview with Cindy McCain airs tomorrow on "This Week."

UPDATE: The Obama campaign is not backing down. "The fact that John McCain does not know how many houses he owns when millions are struggling to stay in the only house they have shows he's out of touch with the lives of real Americans," said Obama spokeswoman Linda Douglass Saturday afternoon. "McCain is promising to double down on the economic policies of George W. Bush which have benefited corporations and CEO's while leaving middle-class families behind. John McCain just doesn't get it."

Douglass later added that "the issue here isn't the wealth of the McCain family, it's that Senator McCain is out of touch when he says that the fundamentals of our economy are strong' and that the Bush economy has ‘made great progress' when most Americans are actually losing ground."

Sounds like she's a little more sensitive than Teresa Heinz-Kerry.

Amazing, you are jumping on the band waggon because a millionaire does not keep up on the day to day investments?

On your level, how many pairs of sox do you have in your home?

That's basically what you are asking a rich man to tell you.

What I would ask you is what the **** business is it of yours or mine to know what he does with his money, or his wife's money? It's not our business, nor is it Obama's business. He best be taking care of his personal business with the terrorist, that will bite him in the ass quicker than McCain owning property and not knowing how much.

You are such a douche.

Than it's incredibly clear that a rich man has no idea what common obstacles I face financially in a down economy.

Yeah, socks are like houses. This is what common people can relate to. She's really not rich after all, how callous to insult her so.

It's probably what Bill Gates could say to her. I'm not really so different, I don't know how many super-yachts I own, that's basically like your houses Cindy McCain, see we're really the same!

I guess if she's really "offended" she could just give it all away.

To John McCain, eight homes worth over 13 million dollars is the same thing as a dozen pairs of socks. How could anyone call him out of touch with the common man?
