Oops! Obama Forgot How Many Houses He's Bought

Obama's attacking John McCain for "forgetting" how many houses he and Cindy own.

Yeah, McCain is old. We get it. Old people are befuddled, and Obama is a whipper-snapping 47 years old. Yada yada yada. Like that crap worked when Dems used it against Reagan in 1980 and again in 1984. Anyway, back to today...

Oops! Back in 2007, Obama explained his Rezko house deal:

For the record . . .

Dissecting the explanation of White House hopeful Barack Obama for dealing with the shady Tony Rezko;

• During an interview broadcast Sunday on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulous," Democratic White House hopeful Sen. Barack Obama was asked to explain why he had a "blind spot" and went to Tony Rezko -- under investigation for corruption at the time -- for assistance in buying a house and an adjacent parcel.

Obama: "Well, you know, I think that, you know, we had bought a house for the first time and, you know, we were trying to figure out how to set the whole thing up and, you know, this is somebody that I had known for some time. It was an aboveboard legal transaction. I paid more than the price of the property that I purchased and so the assumption was that this was all aboveboard."

Well said, except that this was not the first time Obama went through the process of buying a residence. Obama and his wife bought a condominium in Hyde Park before purchasing their mansion in Kenwood.

If Obama can't even remember how many houses he's bought (the answer is 2), is he befuddled, too?

Glass houses, Barky!

Number of days since Donna Brazile promised to leave the party if superdelegates decided the Dem nominee:

Donna has known for a long time now that superdelegates would be necessary for any Dem candidate to win the nomination this year. Ask Donna when she intends to keep her promise.
Don't hold your breath awaiting a reply.

Here's Donna now...
