Lavish Lifestyles of the Rich and Republican
Suddenly there seems to be an enormous amount of right wing whining about the President’s “lavish” lifestyle. A prime example of the genre: The Imperial Presidency - Mark Steyn - National Review Online.
Mark Steyn seems to think President Obama should forego vacations at Martha’s Vineyard, and private jets, and Darth Vader buses.
I have an idea! To show that he’s committed to austerity measures in these trying times, maybe Obama should follow the lead of Republican candidate Mitt Romney, and sell something valuable.
Like the $5.25 million, 9,500-square foot Deer Valley ski lodge Romney sold recently, for example?Slide 2 Slide 3 Slide 4 Slide 5 Slide 6 Slide 7 Slide 8 Slide 9 Slide 10 Slide 11
Of course, the Romneys do still own a $10 million home on Lake Winnipesaukee in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, and a $12 million La Jolla beachfront compound, so maybe Romney’s example isn’t comparable after all.
