How much house does one man need?
Well, if you are Mitt Romney, you need a lot of house. Because he's personally raising all 16 of his grandchildren.
Oh, he's not? OK, whatever. It's not like his kids can afford hotels when they come to visit mom and dad.
Oh yeah, they're Romneys. They can probably at least afford a Motel 6.
After all, Mitt owns a townhouse near Boston and a vacation home on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire.
But, this isn't about those homes.
It's about his west coast home. Because Regular Americans have two east coast homes and a west coast home.
His west coast home is located in La Jolla, California. Hanging in at 3,000 square feet, it has 3 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms (because regular Americans have more bathrooms than bedrooms). Oh, and it's valued at $12 Million.
However, the Romney family home is "inadequate for their needs" according to a Romney campaign official quoted in The Salt Lake Tribune.
So, because the home is inadequate, they are going to tear it down and build a new one. The new house will come in at 11,062 square feet. For comparison, that's larger than 34% of Mormon Temples. That's not a Regular American house.
That's a La Jolla elite house.
