Obama Criticized For Living In Lavish Mansion While Most Americans Struggle To Make Ends Meet

132-Room Estate Includes Personal Chef, 24-Hour Security Detail

WASHINGTON—Over the past three years, as the sluggish economy has forced many Americans to tighten their belts, President Obama has reportedly enjoyed a lavish personal lifestyle, residing with his family in a 132-room house staffed by a 24-hour security detail, five full-time chefs, and a live-in maid service.

In recent weeks, many of the president’s critics have seized upon the issue, arguing that anyone who sleeps in a sprawling six-level neoclassical mansion covering 18 acres of Washington, D.C.’s most valuable real estate is clearly out of touch with the lives of ordinary citizens.

“What message does it send to the American people when their president is living in a ritzy palatial estate at the same time they’re struggling to keep their heads above water?” political strategist Robert T. Carlson said Wednesday, noting that Obama’s gated home features a lush rose garden, a private balcony, an ostentatious room seemingly devoted to the color blue, a solar­ium, “fancy portraits” of John F. Kennedy and George Washington, and a movie theater. “So much for all that ‘shared sacrifice’ he keeps talking about.”

“And just look at those gaudy columned porticoes,” Carlson continued. “It must have cost a fortune to build that place.”

Other commentators have noted that while Americans lucky enough to have jobs often spend hours in traffic commuting to work each day, Obama simply “walks on over to another wing of his huge mansion,” where he keeps an opulently furnished home office replete with a large wooden desk, a fireplace, three giant windows, and a passage leading to his own private study and dining area.

Rest from THE ONION here…

    I FEEL ASHAMED THAT PEOPLE WOULD SPEAK OF THE PRESIDENT AND HIS WIFE IN THIS WAY. IT IS SUCH SAD COMMENTARY, CHOOSING TO BE OPENLY IGNORANT, RACIST, AND SO UNCONTROLLABLY ANGRY IS REALLY EXPOSING THE SICKNESS THAT IS RAMPANT IN THIS COUNTRY AND HAS BEEN SINCE SLAVERY. I GUESS YOU WOULD BE HAPPY IF PRESIDENT OBAMA AND HIS FAMILY WOULD BE THE FIRST PRESIDENT TO LIVE IN A SHANTY IN BACK OF THE WHITEHOUSE INSTEAD OF BEING IN IT…HOW DARE YOU PIGS WHO WISH YOU HAD THE INTELLIGENCE HE AND HIS WIFE BEHOLD…YOU SHOULD BE EMBARRASSED, AND YOU SHOULD ASK FORGIVENESS FOR WHAT YOU SAID.

    Did they complain about Mitt, Gingrich and Busch? How many homes does Oprah and other celebs own at this time? Petty, Petty, Petty! Who put this statement out, person that wants him out of office. Well get in line!

  5. talktotennessee says:

    Oh for crying out loud! Wasted space argument. You and I own the house Obama is temporarily leasing for four years! If we want him evicted we will do it but the most he gets is a renewal of his lease for 4 years!
    This is such idiotic nonsense that I can’t imagine why I am taking the effort to reply to it except that I have nothing better to do and no money to go anywhere except to sit at this dumb computer and complain! :)

    Struggling to keep thier heads above water?How about having to make daily choices about if you have heat or you feed your family?Not a pretty picture for alot of Americans.Not a good place to be as a parent!!Not a good place to be if you’ve never had to make these choices and are now faced with them.Terrible place when the President of your country doesn’t do anything but mouth deceptive platitudes.

    • lvent says:

      All true..and even worse….that heat and electric we are all paying for are our own natural resources..!!!.The revenue stream from those natural resources could back our own currency to fund State banks.. and free up lending to small business..and create revenue to fund college and reinvestment..which could fund healthcare and America would prosper again…! We don’t have to look past our own borders for prosperity because we have all we need right here..All of that Globalist agenda crap…the ONE WORLD EPCOT CENTER, IS OK TO VISIT IN THE FANTASY WORLD OF DISNEY BUT, THE ENTIRE CONCEPT IS TOTALLY UNAMERICAN…The main objective of the founding fathers was ..to remove ourselves from Government tyranny…feudalism and oppression…that is the reason why we have a U.S. CONSTITUTION….and a right to bear arms as well as strict property laws that protect the people from the Government becoming a corrupt tyranny..a dictatorship that is oppressing the people…! National Sovereignty forever! America is not broke….this entire financial crisis is just another manufactured fraud being committed by the moneyed elite and their perps ! ABOLISH THE FED…THROW THE TRAITORS OUT!!

        I appreciated your comments when you seemed like a pretty sane person. I wonder about you now, to make such a comment, regarding Obama living in a mansion. Maybe I am not getting the joke if it is one. The White House does not belong to Obama. This is where every president lived regardless of good times or bad. You may not like him for what he is doing in the White House; eating and sucking on bar-b-que and chicken bones, spitting water melon seeds on the floor when he pleases, just to have the maids wipe it up on command, struts his long sexy legs in a ($$$$) suit across the white house lawn, jet off in this private jet you so resent him in, singing to millions of women on national TV, in yours and others faces who so resents him, spending billions of dollars at the drop of a hat. I can see how that would intimidate the Americans who don’t like the fact that it’s being done by a black man. I am going to go out on the limb this one time and say he is showing the other side of him. Welcome to America. It’s about (…. time). Now you know what the old and the new America look like. Because of the racist attitudes most white and some jealous blacks are portraying, I hope he wins this election, him and his so called “monkey face” wife. I’d like to see your face Margetta. Anybody that speaks so harsh about another cannot look any better. You are placing yourselves right in the same bunch of Romney, Gingrich, others and Congress. They all sound like spoiled rich kids that cannot have their way when they want something. Grow up and become better.
