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

Abby Zimet

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.
