Don’t let this man anywhere near the economy

OK. I opened a can of whoopass on McSame a bit ago for being completely computer illiterate, but his cluelessness on the following matter defies description — why would we want this man to run the country? Look at this exchange with the Orange County Register’s Martin Wicksol when asked about the spiraling price of gas and its effect on our economy:

WICKSOL: When was the last time you pumped your own gas and how much did it cost?

MCCAIN: Oh, I don’t remember. Now there’s Secret Service protection. But I’ve done it for many, many years. I don’t recall and frankly, I don’t see how it matters.

Think Progress:

McCain’s cluelessness about gas prices is compounded by the fact that he is clueless about what to do about it. He is promoting a gas tax holiday for drivers because he claims to understand “Americans are hurting.” It will provide “a little psychological boost,” McCain said of his plan.

In reality, his gas tax holiday would be worth a mere 60 cents a day for Americans and would be a boon for oil companies and foreign oil-producing nations. It would drive up the deficit.

Well, maybe an inkling of how $2.00/gal vs. $4.25/gallon might affect the economy might be a useful perspective to have as it has an impact on, oh, the little people, you know the ones who actually pay taxes, as opposed to McSame, who’s a tax deadbeat

McSame says our taxes are too high and he wants to preserve the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, right? I guess none of that really matters to him anyway since he doesn’t bother paying them on his beachfront condo. Why does John McCain hate America?

Newsweek is set to publish a highly embarrassing report on Sen. John McCain, revealing that the McCains have failed to pay taxes on their beach-front condo in La Jolla, California, for the last four years and are currently in default, The Huffington Post has learned.

Under California law, once a residential property is in default for five years, it can be sold at a tax sale to recover the unpaid taxes for the taxpayers.

BTW, this is one of the SEVEN homes John and Cindy McCain own. What else is the MSM going to find?

* John McCain gets hip on the internets as the GOP paints grim picture (“Well, basically, it’s a Google.”)
* G*d damn. Can we afford a computer illiterate doofus as POTUS? (“I am an illiterate that has to rely on my wife for all the assistance that I can get.“)
