Washington Times ^ | Tuesday, July 22, 2014 | Cheryl K. Chumley

The Obamas are reportedly poised to purchase a custom-built high-class home in the Rancho Mirage section of California for $4.25 million.

Only $4.25 million?! Sounds like the Obamas are planning on leaving the White House “dead broke” too!

A rather popular, secluded spot here in CA. Too hot for me.

His hand is going to be in every black’s, union’s, Democrat’s pockets for years and years to come. He’ll make the Clintons look like a couple of small town grifters.

What the article is avoiding is the fact that this home is in a gated community.

The following from the LA Times:

"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."

So that they can have acres of Bermuda grass in the desert -

an “in-your-face” to the people who have to ration their water usage in the area.

Why There?

Because a desert reminds the Obamas most of their vision for America?

The property also includes a casita with three bedrooms and three baths, and spans 3.29 private acres, according to the real estate listing.

Nice!

Maybe one of their 1% billionaire buddies from Silicon Valley buying it for them? After all, the Obamas—panhandlers until the end—never pay their own tabs.

Next time he’s out of DC, I have a fantasy. The HOR should defund AF1 and not let him return to DC. I’ll even donate to the cause if he stays in CA and wants donations for his new house.

The San Andreas Fault is apparently just on the other side of I-10. And the San Jacinto Fault is on the other side of the San Jacinto mountains. Not to mention the volcanic activity, evidenced by the Salton Buttes (lava domes) particularly. And of course the “new” faults shown on this graphic.

I was thinking the same. Are there ritzy private schools in the area? Malia will probably be off to college by then but what about the other one?

I just can’t picture big Mooche being stuck in the desert. This might just be one of many homes they’ll purchase.

Yes, I noticed that directly after meeting with the farmers in the Central Valley to discuss water shortages (farmers were allotted 0 fed water this year), Obie flew down to Palm Springs to play a few rounds on the exclusive, lush greens (in the middle of a desert).

Generally people who buy million dollar houses in Rancho Mirage only live there about 3 months out of the year.

Frankly I can’t understand why anyone would live there even 3 months out of the year. There’s nothing to do there but golf.

The only other reason to live there is if you are a homosexual. Palm Springs/Rancho Mirage has more homosexuals per square mile than San Francisco.

I was hoping he would go someplace better suited to his tastes - Kenya, Indonesia, Cuba, North Korea, Iran, or Venezuela. I guess California is close enough these days.
