Seeing his polls collapsing, Barack Obama took his own party's advice "to get tougher" by mocking John McCain for owning seven houses. It's a dumb move.
Regular Americans aren't as enamored with class warfare arguments as are left-wingers. If it is such a fertile attack, why didn't the Bush campaign use it against John Kerry in 2004? Further, McCain is an older man who served years in a prison camp so I don't believe anyone feels he's led a "charmed life."
And, of course, it opens Obama to a more full discussion of his sleazy house deal with convicted felon Tony Rezko.
A panic move by Obama that will not work.
