The Obama: Man of the People


The [Obama] couple wanted to step up from their $415,000 condo. They chose a house with six bedrooms, four fireplaces, a four-car garage and 5 1/2 baths, including a double steam shower and a marble powder room. It had a wine cellar, a music room, a library, a solarium, beveled glass doors and a granite-floored kitchen

Nice joint they have there. No mention of the string quartet's living accomodations, though.

How does this place compare to the McCain's house in California? The one they don't pay taxes on?

Amy said...

Doesn't matter. McCain's not the one going around talking about "two Americas" and the "eeeeevilll rich" like Obama does.

Obama claims to be a "man of the people", just like us.

Yeah - when he moves his wife and daughters into the open apartment in my building, then we'll talk.

I have no problem with someone having a nice house and a decent wage - execept when they adopt a "good for me, bad for you" attitude.

Which is what Obama has done.

man of the people, of course, lol.

Dave Reid said...

So Obama is "bad" er something because he has been successful. If anything it proves that he has been able to raise himself up. Hell it even shows that those taxes he is going to raise well will hit him.

Dad29 said...

No, Dave, The O is 'bad' because he is a Chicago machine politician.

Say anything, do anything, but get elected!

BTW, taxes never hit certain people--like the Kennedys, or the Heinz/Kerrys.

They're not "of the people" either.
