Advertising guru blames Obama's 'class warfare' for Hamptons mansion sale

He got taxed out of town.

Legendary advertising guru Jerry Della Femina is the latest Hamptons fat cat to unload his East End spread at the precipice of the dreaded fiscal cliff, The Post has learned.

The flamboyant Madison Avenue guru has sold his 8,500-square-foot estate — the host of many legendary Hamptons bashes — for $25 million, and blames his flight squarely on President Obama’s fiscal policies.

“I want the proceeds of this sale to go to my kids and my grandkids,” said the man behind iconic ad campaigns for Meow Mix and Absolut Vodka. “I don’t want my money going to Obama, and that’s what’s going to happen in the New Year. That’s why I sold right now, that’s why I wanted to get this done.”

He should blame his rich neighbors. Counting the wives the vote there was probably 80% or more for the Kenyan

I try to be positive, but I spoke with another gnome yesterday. I was told another tale of an entrepreneur who doubled his work hrs under Obama and isn't making it, and thinking of closing it all down and going Galt, including things like going into silver etc. ( you know the drill ). Our Lear Deader is fundementally changing America, the problem is their will be no one left who knows how to do anything when the producers stop doing their stuff.

I wonder which news networks he supported with millions of advertising dollars. Just saying.

Thanks lowbridge.
I want the proceeds of this sale to go to my kids and my grandkids... I don’t want my money going to Obama, and that’s what’s going to happen in the New Year. That’s why I sold right now, that’s why I wanted to get this done.
$25 million, just fyi.

Due to Obama’s fiscal policies the new game is on Hide Your Money.

“Due to Obama’s fiscal policies the new game is on Hide Your Money.”

And you know what, the “rich” will win that game. I am waiting for the tax income numbers to prove that “taxing the rich” was a fools mission. Here’s hoping FUBO is shown that he doesn’t know what he’s doing.

Stocks are paying off before 2013 to beat the taxes and people are moveing money fast.Many are cashing out their 401 the list goes on.

Ole Jerry is conservative-ish and loves this country.

His is a rags to riches story that everyone in advertising knows about.
