Per the Washington Post, this is the floor plan of the new house Mitt and Ann Romney are building in La Jolla, California. You know, the one with the car elevator:
How does our 1,150 sq. ft., three bedroom, 1-1/2 bath house compare? Here it is in blue, superimposed over the plans above. Slide that blue square over to the right, into the living room of Mitt and Ann’s place, and it just about fits. It might even be a tad smaller.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not complaining. No way. We love our house and we feel lucky given the space we have. So many people around the world live in much smaller places. Much, much smaller.
My point here is that the ol’ Mittster’s thinking about running for president in 2016 as an anti-poverty/income disparity guy. You know, as if he suddenly cares about the 47% he spat on the last time around.
Maybe it’s just me but I don’t think a man who’s building an 11,000 square foot home (one of many) can even begin to relate to someone like me whose whole house would fit in his living room.
Mitt Romney’s son Josh tweeted out a pic of his dad supposedly standing in line to mail/pay his taxes today.
Give me a break. Takeaway here: We Romneys are so arrogant we think the American people are idiots who will believe Mitt did this and they won’t think this is staged. I mean, maybe the Mittster did stand in line to mail his tax return (or pay his taxes — there’s a difference) but don’t tell me (1) he filled the form out himself (think an army of tax preparers) or that (2) his return isn’t hiding millions of dollars in overseas bank accounts or (3) he isn’t taking advantage of loopholes we haven’t even heard of.
Oh, and why in the world does Josh think anyone cares about what his father’s doing today? I swear, the Romneys have generational problems with relationship with their fathers. Mitt is still — apparently — trying to win the presidency his father failed to get and now Josh is (delusionally, imho) thinking we care about his dad…or something.
A screwed up family laid bare.
Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital is in the news again:
Clear Channel Burning Cash to Delay Reckoning: Corporate Finance
Clear Channel Communications Inc. is offering to double interest to push out maturities on some of the $4.3 billion it owes, just as the most-leveraged U.S. broadcaster suffers the first cash-flow deficit in four years.
The company said on Nov. 25 that it’s seeking to extend about $1.8 billion of borrowings due in 2016 by three years to five years, which Fitch Ratings estimates would boost interest costs as much as $55 million annually.
While the proposal gives Clear Channel more time to turn around a business that’s posted losses every year after Bain Capital Partners LLC and Thomas H. Lee Partners LP took control in 2008…
What? Clear Channel has lost money every year since Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital “took control?” I thought Romney was Mr. Master Money Maker / Turn Around Guy.
Undoubtedly, losing a presidential election exacts a huge emotional toll on a candidate but when that candidate can’t take his own advice about getting over it, it’s kind of creepy:
Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney isn’t through parsing over the final days of the 2012 election.
In addition to a slew of polling that, in hindsight, ended up heavily skewing towards his campaign, Mitt Romney pointed to comments made by a “leading Democrat” who thought the former Massachusetts governor defeated an incumbent president one week before the polls closed on November 6.
“I spoke with a leading Democrat, one of the top leaders of the Democratic party and he said, ‘I thought you had won, one week out,'” Romney told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto on Friday.
“But all total, you’re not going to spend your time going back and saying, what kind of events could have happened differently,” he added. “I made plenty of mistakes in the campaign. The president made mistakes. No one runs a perfect campaign. The end result was he won, I lost, and you get over that.”
So, Mitt, when are you going to stop spending “your time going back,” and when are you going to “get over” it?
It’s one thing to tell women to have kids — I wouldn’t expect anything less from Mitt Romney — the guy who I’m so freakin’ glad we sent back to La Jolla — but who in the world says women should have a “quiver full” of kids?
This is a quiver:
What? WHAT? Who thinks like that much less talks like that?
Maybe it’s just me but I wonder if Ann Romney claimed she was a “big, big fan” of Dancing With the Stars because her husband was running for president. Nah! She’d never do that. Would she?
Ann Romney was offered a consolation prize — first lady of Rumba — but after seriously considering it she turned down “Dancing with the Stars” … TMZ has learned.
Sources connected to the show tell us … “DWTS” honchos approached Ann about the gig just after her hubby lost the election and she was “very interested.” You may recall, Ann showed up at last season’s finale and gushed that she was a big, big fan.
Mitt Romney on Wednesday:
“I spoke with president Clinton the day before yesterday, he called and spent thirty minutes chatting with me. He said a week out I thought you were going to win. And he said, but the hurricane happened, and it gave the president a chance to be presidential, and to look bipartisan, and you know he got a little more momentum, and of course he also said that when he was watching Ann speak at the Republican convention, he decided he was tempted to join the Republican Party. So he may have just been effusive with generous comments as he chatted.”
