Oh Mittens, that true mensch, a real man of the people, displaying his common touch during his speech to an empty stadium:
"I drive a Mustang and a Chevy pick-up truck. Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs, actually. And I used to have a Dodge truck. So I used to have all three covered.”
Ah yes, who doesn't have multiple cars to play with? Who doesn't
use a 20-sided die every morning to decide which car to pull from the stable? Is it an SUV day, or a convertible day, or a two-seater roadster day, or a muscle car day? You know what I'm talking about, right? Right?
Wait, you mean Americans don't typically have multiple Cadillacs in their garage? Uh oh. Time for some quick damage control!
The Romney campaign later said Ann Romney drives two Cadillac SRX’s (model years 2007 and 2010), one in California and one in Massachusetts.
Ah yes, that explains it. They need multiple Cadillacs to stock their various mansions! That'll help Romney seem less detached from the 99 percent!
But wait, mansions in California and Massachusetts? Seems kind of communist. Surely, he has to have a mansion in the heartland, or at least in Michigan, where Romney has a tree fetish:
This feels good, being back in Michigan. You know, the trees are the right height. The streets are just right.
Nope. He's got a $10 million summer vacation mansion in New Hampshire, were the trees are too tall and too small and too bushy.
Then there's the near-million dollar townhouse the Romneys bought
in Belmont, MA
order to "downsize" and "simplify" their lives:
Banker & tradesman reported that Ann D. Romney, wife of former Bay State Governor and presidential contender Mitt Romney, purchased a new townhouse in a luxury Belmont development for $895,000. The Romneys sold their 6,400-square-foot home on Belmont’s Main Street last April as part of their efforts to downsize and simplify.
There's the $12 million La Jolla, California
property, which is totally inadequate at 3,009 square feet. So much so, that the Romneys are razing it and building a 11,000-square-foot mansion in its place.
Still, Romney is well aware that he has to sacrifice during his presidential run, given that he's unemployed, and worth just, oh, who knows, “between 150 and 200 some-odd million” (who can count that high?). He can't seem too
ostentatiously wealthy lest he be branded as aloof, patrician and out of touch. So, he sold off his multi-million dollar mansions in:
Deer Valley, Utah ...
... and Belmont, Massachusetts
Yup. Absolutely nothing in Michigan, where trees are all apparently the EXACT same (and proper) height, and the streets are perfect, but not perfect enough that he'd want to actually spend time there. Like all Republican blowhards, he'd rather talk
about the heartland than actually live
But don't worry! He has a bunch of cars made in America in all those garages! Well, four of them, to be exact. But of course we know he has more cars. I wonder why he doesn't want to list them all?
A campaign spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for a full inventory of the Romneys’ vehicles.
