"Fox News: “Is Obama Bashing ‘American Dream’ By Bashing McCain’s 7 Homes?”"

On Fox News’ Your World, host Neil Cavuto defended John McCain’s inability to recall the number of homes he owns by attacking critics who have sought to highlight McCain’s failure. He opened the segment by asking, “Well, instead of slamming McCain, is Obama really bashing the American Dream?”


Fox News has it backwards. McCain’s remark is symbolically important because it suggests McCain is unable to relate to “the mortgage foreclosure crisis that has upended the American dream of owning even one home.” It also serves to highlight the fact McCain is running a campaign of the rich, by the rich, and for the rich.
