Chris Rock Stumps for Obama in Tampa

You can listen to Chris Rock stumping for Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., HERE courtesy of the St. Petersburg Times.

Rock jokes that people struggling economically need a president who understands what they’re going through.

"When you go to somebody for help you want somebody who can relate to what you have to say," Rock says. "Like, if I have problems getting laid, I wouldn’t call Brad Pitt ’cause he wouldn’t know what I was talking about."

He cited Sen. John McCain’s myriad houses as evidence that the Republican doesn’t get it.

"McCain was on MTV’s Cribs 15 times," Rock joked. "This is not the guy you want to be president…McCain probably had financial problems too, but we can’t all do what he did. We can’t all dump our first wife, marry a rich one and have all our bills paid."
