Mitt "Corporations Are People Too" Romney, you know, old "I'm unemployed too" -- is planning to quadruple the size of his house in La Jolla, California:

Romney has filed an application with the city to bulldoze his 3,009-square-foot, single-story home at 311 Dunemere Dr. and replace it with a two-story, 11,062-square-foot structure. No date has been set to consider the proposed coastal development and site development permits, which must be approved by the city.

The former governor of Massachusetts purchased the home three years ago. According to a description from the listing agent, the Spanish-style residence at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac is sophisticated and understated in its décor, “offering complete privacy and unsurpassed elegance.”

Tentative plans call for new retaining walls and a relocated driveway, but would retain the existing lap pool and spa.

“This offering represents a truly unique opportunity for a buyer who appreciates the scarcity of this caliber of real estate,” the listing said.

Constructed in 1936, the three-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home was among the first built in the Barber tract neighborhood, according to the La Jolla Historical Society, and has a stretch of lawn sloping to the white sand beach.

“I wanted to be where I could hear the waves,” Romney told a gaggle of media last year at a book signing in University City. “As a boy we spent summers on Lake Huron and I could hear the crashing waves at night. It was one of my favorite things in the world; being near the water and the waves was something I very badly wanted to experience again.”

The Romneys also own a $10 million lake house in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire and a townhouse in Washington, DC.

We now return you to the endless right-wing litany of shrieking over Barack Obama's two week stay in Martha's Vineyard. Because only Republican presidents are allowed to take vacations. Especially when they wear "rancher" drag while doing it, because that makes all the manly-men of the media feel all, like, you know, manly.

What happened to Massachusetts Mitt? Just a stepping stone on your way to the presidency. Couldn't be bothered to hang around and see what the results of your policies looked like?

At least pirates have the decency to carry a gun, a sword and wear an eye-patch when their ripping you off. These crooks don't even pretend that their hypocrisy will ever matter.

They KNOW the pundits will cover their shit up.
