Mitt Romney Home Being Razed To Build Mansion During Recession Driven Campaign
What are “job creators” doing to help spur the economy? If you’re Mitt Romney you’re petitioning the city of San Diego to bulldoze your meager little 3,009 square foot home so you can build a much more comfortable 11,062 square foot home in it’s original place.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney petitioned the board in his affluent La Jolla neighborhood for permission to build his new two story home.
According to Curbed.com Romney originally purchased the half-acre lots for $12 million and at that time he told reporters:
“I wanted to be where I could hear the waves,” while adding, “As a boy we spent summers on Lake Huron and I could hear the crashing waves at night. It was one of my favorite things in the world.”
In what can only be described as a horrendous attempt to hide his wealth during his presidential run his camp says he won’t start building the home until the primaries are completed and the Presidential race is completed should he be elected as the GOP candidate for President.
“Construction will not begin until the permits have been obtained and the campaign is finished,” an official told Politico, while citing that the 11,000+ square feet were needed for his big family, revealing:
“They want to enlarge their two-bedroom home because with five married sons and 16 grandchildren it is inadequate for their needs.”
All I heard from that statement was “let them eat cake” then again I haven’t had dinner yet, perhaps that’s my problem. Seriously though, this is as bad as Al Gore talking about fixing the environment while living in a mansion that consumes as much power as my entire small town block.
