Why do Obama supporters keep saying that only the "rich" are voting for McCain?

What is with this type of labeling?....Are you trying to tell me that Oprah, Ben Affleck, Fergie, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Barbra Streisand, George Clooney, Matt Damon, etc. are not rich and that is why they are supporting Obama?

  • We are considered wealthy by Obama's tax plan (income over $250,000), but we're still voting for him. I don't care if he does raise my taxes. People who make more SHOULD pay more taxes (as we already do). I have no problem with it. So not all "wealthy" people are voting for McCain.

  • Just as some say, the all the African Americans are voting for Obama...seriously Its a sided debate, A sided election, but rather we are black., white...purple or poor

    we are still Americans and we still all have a right to vote to who we really honestly believe will make a change in this country, and that's really ALL that matters,

  • We are rich in values, honesty, and faith (not income)... And we are voting for McCain. Maybe that is what they mean ;o)

    I have noticed that Pro-Lifers stand by him, but a Repub has been in office almost 8 yrs now, and nothing touched Roe V Wade, but I guess they can always hope!

    I like having Reproductive Rights!
