I’m sorry, but with remarks like this, Obama is asking for it:

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.”
(Emphasis added.)

I don’t think Barack Obama is in any position to claim that McCain is “out of touch” for not knowing the details of his wife’s investments off the top of his head. Perhaps he thinks the public’s memory is so short that they’ve forgotten all about Obama’s real estate dealings with Tony Rezko — which Obama himself described as “bone-headed.”
OTOH, maybe he thinks the media memory is short. Here’s how ABC reported it:

Obama maintains his relationship with Rezko was “above board and legal” but has admitted bad judgment, calling his decision to involve Rezko “a bone-headed mistake.”
Rezko’s behind-the-scenes connection in the Obama house deal became public as Rezko revealed personal financial details as he sought to post bail.
While Rezko’s wife paid the full asking price for the land, Obama paid $300,000 under the asking price for the house. The house sold for $1,650,000 and the price Rezko’s wife paid for the land was $625,000.
Obama denies there was anything unusual about the price disparity. He says the price on the house was dropped because it had been on the market for some time but that the price for the adjacent land remained high because there was another offer.
Obama then expanded his property by buying a strip of the Rezko land for $104,5000, which the senator maintains was a fair market price.
Obama later told the Chicago Sun-Times, “It was a mistake to have been engaged with him at all in this or any other personal business dealing that would allow him, or anyone else, to believe he had done me a favor.”
Obama had known Rezko long before the house deal, calling him a “friend.”
An ABC News review of campaign records shows Rezko, and people connected to him, contributed more than $120,000 to Obama’s 2004 campaign for the U.S. Senate, much of it at a time when Rezko was the target of an FBI investigation.
“It surprised me that late in the game he [Obama] continued to take contributions from somebody who was under a rather dark cloud in the state,” said Cynthia Canary of the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform, a group that has worked closely with Obama and supported his legislative efforts.
In the wake of the Rezko indictment, Obama says he has given $44,000 of the Rezko-connected money to charity.

OK, the facts are complicated and a little hard to follow, and Obama admits it was bone-headed to make a deal with a crook like Rezko. I know it’s old news, but how can Obama maintain that McCain is “out of touch with the lives of real Americans” for not remembering the details of his wife’s real estate investments?
Since when is a “bone-headed” deal with a Syrian crook like Rezko indicia of being in touch with the lives of real Americans?
I’m thinking maybe Obama should tread lightly where it comes to real estate issues.
