Who says Mitt Romney doesn’t know how to create jobs? In fact, he created one good job without hardly trying.
He hired a lobbyist for his new house.
Yes, that mammoth new house Romney has been preparing to start building once the election is over is back in the news. Turns out, Romney’s house plans are so elaborate, it’s been requiring its own consultant to work with the city for the last four years obtaining permits. The tab? Almost $22,000.
But what do you expect when you have a house that requires an elevator…just for your cars?
You know you’ve become a bit of a caricature of wealth and indulgence when even your own party is making “grey poupon” jokes at you. At this point, Romney could literally show up in a top hat and monocle lighting cigars with $100 bills and he wouldn’t seem more out of touch.
It will continue to be a struggle for Romney to connect with the everyday needs of the average voter when his idea of economic stimulus appears to increasing the number of employees caring for his home.
