Scarborough: Kerry Has Nice Houses Too
Joe Scarborough wonders if the New York Times ever did a hit piece on the incredible wealth of John Kerry like they did on Mitt Romney's La Jolla beach house.
So now, after overcoming the distrust of social conservatives and evangelical voters to clinch the Republican nomination, Mr. Romney must win over another constituency, one that his campaign team never anticipated, polled or targeted: disaffected neighbors.
Mr. Clark, an accountant, is trying to organize a campaign fund-raiser at his home for President Obama and hopes to bump into Mr. Romney on the street, so he can explain, “in a neighborly way,” why he thinks his relationship with Mr. Maddox deserves the same rights and status as the marriage between Mr. Romney and his wife, Ann.
Three houses away from Mr. Romney is Mark Quint, a Democrat who said that he is tired of watching neighboring homeowners bulldoze small beach houses to make way for McMansions, fearing a “nightmare of construction.” He sees a discrepancy in Mr. Romney’s ambitious renovation plan. “The only thing he wants small is government and taxes,” Mr. Quint said. “He likes big houses, big families and big religion.”
A pointless piece - unless you want to make a Republican look bad for being rich. As Joe wants to know, when did they do this to John Kerry?
