Romney Has 'Unsurpassed Elegance', But Wants Four Times More Of It

GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is richer than you, which is why he is planning to bulldoze his $12 million oceanfront home in La Jolla, Cal. in order to quadruple its size. The house, one of several he owns, has three bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, a spa and lap pool and a private beach. A spokesman says it's "inadequate to their needs." This, from the guy who told a crowd of jobless voters he was "also unemployed." Ha ha. He may not win the nomination, but he sure wins the award for tone-deaf clueless arrogance.

"I wanted to be where I could hear the waves,” Romney has said of the house. Yeah, we'd like that too.
