Are The Obamas Buying A Home In Rancho Mirage? [No, Not in Compton!]

July 21, 2014 Are The Obamas Buying A Home In Rancho Mirage?

President Obama and his wife, Michelle, could be the owners of a home in Rancho Mirage listed at $4.25 million before the month is out.

The First Family is believed to be in escrow on a contemporary home in a gated community where entertainers Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby once maintained estates.

The White House said rumors regarding a home in Rancho Mirage are not true.

But area real estate agents, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the Obamas are the buyers of the Rancho Mirage home. Listing agents Marc Lange and Carl Blea of HOM Sotheby’s International declined to comment.

The Obamas would not be the first presidential family to land in the Southern California desert. After completing his time in office, former President Gerald R. Ford moved to the area, which has been called "the playground of presidents." Other U.S. presidents have visited and spent time in the Coachella Valley.

Speculation about a potential purchase started when the Obamas spent a long Father’s Day weekend there. President Obama was also in Rancho Mirage mixing business and golf earlier in the year, reported the Desert Sun, playing at Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison’s private course at the Porcupine Creek estate and at Sunnylands.

Obama wants to be where the boys are. He’ll never settle for the desert.

Yet another reason, as if we needed one, to sluff Kalifornia off into the ocean. Well, except for polluting the ocean.

I imagine the boy wants to live right in the middle of ‘RAT fundraiser land. He’ll be doing “fundraisers” until the day he dies. He loves that ****.

So she wants to take Feinstein’s seat.

I actually think she will have a harder time in Ca than other states.

In Ca the race will be the primary.

Look for Obama to take a position at USC.

Uhmmm....the boyz are in all over the place and he’ll be right in the middle of three festivals for Colon Commandos.

He’ll be right at home and join any number of Brown Eyed Battalions and maybe be an elite sphincter soldier...

President Ford had a home nearby that location. My brother was Postmaster of Rancho Mirage for many years.

Just moved out.

Gays are buying out all the older celebrity and Jewish homes.

Place isn’t the same as it used to be.

Older community was like 60s San Francisco, with class and style.

Today it’s gay style and all cosmetics. No Class.

Ideal spot for Obama, right next to the San Andreas and volcanic risk.

The only thing I have to say is the SS will be happy it’s not Chicago, but sad it isn’t Hawaii. As long as he is in lala land and not in Washington.

Palm Springs is the gayest city in America. The perfect place for the tranny and the homo Prince.

In the end he becomes a 1%’er.

With such a huge pad maybe he’ll invite some undocumented immigrants to live with him until they can get on their feet.

And how many homes are counted at this time. Seem to remember a write up recently they had purchased one in the Carolinas. Great, one more home in which to store the ‘children’ Lots of empty houses owned by the boy-king ..that’s the rumor.

Well, Boehner may need a job by then, but Id hardly call him white, more of a orange color.

I guess that unlike the Clintons, the Obamas don’t plan on leaving the WH “dead broke.” /S
