Ok, not really.
A lot is being made of McCain’s lack of recall about the number of properties he owns, 8?, 10? It’s kind of humorous. Here’s a few that pile on.
Not to sound like an apologist, but I suspect there are many investors out there who couldn’t give you an accurate, off the cuff, answer either. It’s really trivial trivia (if there is such a thing). McCain doesn’t say, “Gee, I really want to boost my number of houses from 10 to 11.”
In my book, you get a pass after owning three houses. At that point, you’re entitled to be oblivious.
