If this article makes you angry, well, it should.
So, the Obamas are big fans of diversity, and champions of blacks and poor people in the U.S.A., right? And they’re extremely concerned about the wellbeing of their fellow Americans, right? Well, not according to their most recent home purchase.
The Obamas recently purchased a home, their fifth, in the golfing mecca of Rancho Mirage, Calif. This newest home has 9 bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms, and is 8,500 square feet. The extremely upscale town in which it is located is home to twelve (yes, you read it right, twelve) golf courses, and, according to the 2010 census, almost 90% of its residents are white.
Breitbart News website explains that, “[The Obama’s] new California home in Rancho Mirage is located near world-class golf courses and is not far from Sunnylands, the former Annenberg estate, which has been used by presidents as an unofficial Camp David of the West Coast. The news comes two years after reports said the Obamas were in escrow to buy the $4.25 million home in the area, but White House reports denied them at the time.”
It’s hard to even know where to start when thinking about this extravagant purchase. Certainly the Obamas aren’t trying to get closer to those whom they claim to be so concerned about (e.g., the poor and minorities). Probably one of the best ways to think about this was summed up by a reader of the Washington Times:
Yeah, and after eight excruciating years for Americans this family of Chicago grifters will retire to live in the lap of luxury in the Golden State and the taxpayers will be left with a debt of 20 TRILLION and the US economy will no longer be Number 1 in the world. Just the Obamas giving Americans the middle finger.
Well said, my friend, well said.
