Everybody’s favorite breeder of fancy-prancing Bugatti jackasses whacks the President. Someone’s got to take a stand for blue collar America, so it might as well be a quarter-billion dollar candidate for First Lady.
Ann Romney, the wife of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, said Monday that she doubted she and her husband would vacation overseas as frequently as the Obamas if her husband were elected . .
“I doubt that,” Romney replied. “Our vacations and our happiness come from being with our children and our grandchildren.”
First, Princess, you’re old and your kids are all grown. So they won’t be trapped in the White House. That would be a sensible reason to take them far, far away every once in a while. Yours aren’t gonna meet you in Madrid anyway as they have lives of their own, but nice try. Second, when Sasha and Malia do end up going somewhere, they rarely get the run of a place resembling this:
Guess who wins the award for the Republican presidential candidate with the most real estate? It’s Mitt! In 2009, Mitt Romney had four mansions. His post-and-beam-log lodge (pictured here) was listed that year for $5.35 million (then removed), but real-estate website Zillow.com estimates the value around $2.6 million.
That year, he also sold his Boston-area 1930 house for $3.5 million. Rounding out the collection are a $12 million beachfront compound in La Jolla, Calif., and a lake house in Wolfeboro, N.H.
After living in a place like that 24/7, the only reason to go to Versailles would be to point and laugh. And for the “criticism from conservative radio hosts for her international travel,” I just think going after the First Lady is roundly pathetic. The previous president was on something approaching permanent vacation. Someone could have apologized for that.
Also — the Daily Caller?
