Real American?

“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”

Can someone define for me what a “real” American actually is? What an arrogant thing to say by the Obama campaign. Rhetoric from this campaign has ostensibly been about the binding universality of being American across ideological and racial bounds. Apparently this only applies to “real” Americans, meaning it not only doesn’t apply to John McCain but also not to Barack Obama or anyone in the political elite in this country.
