McCains Defaulted On Home Taxes For Last Four Years, Newsweek Reports

When you're poor, it can be hard to pay the bills. When you're rich, it's hard to keep track of all the bills that need paying. It's a lesson Cindy McCain learned the hard way when NEWSWEEK raised questions about an overdue property-tax bill on a La Jolla, Calif., property owned by a trust that she oversees. Mrs. McCain is a beer heiress with an estimated $100 million fortune and, along with her husband, she owns at least seven properties, including condos in California and Arizona.

Here's what the "liberal media" (lol!) says about John McCain:

● Kind of like a Martin Luther [Chris Matthews - Hardball]
● A man of unshakable character, willing to stand up for his convictions [R.W. Apple, NY Times]
● An affable man of zealous, unbending beliefs [Richard Cohen, The Washington Post]
● The hero who still does things his own way [Richard Cohen, The Washington Post]
● Rises above the pack-eloquent, as only a prisoner of war can be [David Nyhan, The Boston Globe]
● The perfect candidate to deal with what challenges we face as a country. [Mika Brzezinski, MSNBC]
● Blunt, unyielding, deploying his principles, what he does do is what he’s always done, play it as straight as possible. [Terry Moran, Nightline]
● Wordly-wise and witty, determined to follow the facts to the exclusion of ideology. [Michael Hirsh, Newsweek]
● Willing to defy his own party and forge compromise. [Michael Hirsh, Newsweek]
● Pragmatic in the service of the national interest, rises to passion when he believes that America’s best values are at stake. [Michael Hirsh, Newsweek]
● The maverick candidate still. [Terry Moran, Nightline]
