(CNN) -Cindy McCain, wife of Republican presidential nominee John McCain, criticized the media at a weekend fundraiser, telling supporters that the hosts of The View “picked our bones clean.”
"In spite of what you see …in the newspapers, and on shows like The View - I don't know if any of you saw The View yesterday, they picked our bones clean - in spite of what you see, that's not what the American people are saying and what they are believing," said McCain, in a recording obtained by ABC News. "They are now seeing a clear difference with these candidates, and they are seeing who is going to make the best president, and that's why we're pulling ahead."

John McCain had a tough exchange with the hosts of The View during a recent appearance, during which he was pressed on the credentials of running mate Sarah Palin, claims in his campaign ads that co-host Joy Behar called “lies,” and how many houses he and his wife own.
Watch John McCain get grilled on The View
I guess the McRich thought that the view would be a cake walk and talk about outfits, shoes, and accessories.
That's what happens when you underestimate women. Try Ellen and see how far you can get.
You tell 'em Cindy. I don't know why McCain does media interviews anymore. If they're just going to sit there and bash him to his face its kind of dumb.
Come on dude, get an educations. Obama did 5 times that amount in Earmarks. Palin is not alone.
Don't believe the polls, Obama and Biden are gonna kick butt!
I watched the show and I loved it!
About time somebody question all he's lies!
I can't wait for Palin to go and the view....
It will be the end of the republican party haha
the McCains and Sarah Palin want to be treated with "deference" as though they were Popes or Royalty instead of like the sleazy politicians that they are.
With her past "problems" I don't think it's very wise to attack the ladies of the View. She can't call them sexist.
Who gave Barbie McCain a microphone?
OH please Cindy, spare me! Go cower in one of your seven houses and stay there..
Can hand it out but just can't take it.
Picked our bones clean
If you dont stop the lies, the public might break your bones.
Well, she pays his bills... she might as well fight his battles too.
Must be nice to live in delusional wealthy world, Cindy.
McCain is sexist...using women to do his bidding and to hide behind...
I watched the view. A presidental candidate should be able to answer any question. Guess it isn't fun to try to defend yorself when you know you are a LIAR!
snipe, snipe, snipe, bitter old rich lady.
Is this the first time Cindy has ever used the "poor me" phrase????
Face the truth and the tough questions. You lied and they were calling you out.
Not sure why the McCain's went on The View. The "hosts" are too biased to conduct a respectable interview. And why do they bother to ask the guests questions when they don't want to give them a chance to provide an uninterupted response? Barbara Walters has either allowed the twits around her to drag her down, or, her true colors are showing.
It is amazing that Cindy McCain didn't want to talk about how many houses she has. It is actually nine. I hope the mainstream media start talking about the issues and truly start contrasting them instead of allowing the Republicans to continue to dictate to them what to print. Do your job MSM.
If you can't stand the heat. .......
THEN GET OUT OF THE KITCHEN !!!!
The CNN poll of polls shows them up by one, I'd hardly call that "pulling ahead"!!! And if you don't like your bones picked clean – STOP LYING!!!
Isn't it just so typical of her to complain about about her husbands honest treatment on "The View"; Did you see Obama complaining about his harsh and disrespectful treatment on those 4 interviews on "O'Riellys show"? Well if you didn't, than it's rather evident that he took the unfair lumps in stride without complaint. Now that's a real man!
Ha, ha, ha! McCain/Palin will win.
Go Hope-Change yourselves elsewhere.
