Finally an issue that Mirr Romney cares enough to fight for: an elevator for his cars.

In the same day two news reports that need to be put into juxtaposition.

First Romney is going to slash government services and budgets but isn't going to tell us what:

Mitt Romney wants to eliminate government programs and shutter cabinet agencies. Doing so, he says, is “the critical thing” that needs to be done in order to bring government books back into balance and to begin restoring the promise of America. “Actually eliminating programs is the most important way to keep Congress from stuffing the money back into them,” he told me in a 30-minute interview on March 21. It’s a smart answer and a deeply conservative one.


Romney . . .is reluctant to get specific about the programs he would like to kill.

“One of the things I found in a short campaign against Ted Kennedy was that when I said, for instance, that I wanted to eliminate the Department of Education, that was used to suggest I don’t care about education,” Romney recalled. “ . . .there will be departments and agencies that will either be eliminated . . . The answer is yes, but I’m not going to give you a list . . .”

However this is not to say that Romney doesn't have passion about certain things and isn't willing to fight in what he believes in;

Mitt Romney believes deeply in luxury basements


Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has filed an application to replace a single-story 3,000-square-foot beach house in La Jolla, Calif., with a 7,400-square-foot home with an additional 3,600 square feet of finished underground space, according to public records. A representative declined to comment. Tony Crisafi, one of the project's architects, declined to comment on Mr. Romney's motivations but says that these days, most of his clients want to be discreet about the scale of their home, and one way to do that is "by pushing things underground."

Romney is willing to "fight like hell so my cars can have their own elevators"

SAN DIEGO — At Mitt Romney’s proposed California beach house, the cars will have their own separate elevator.

There’s also a planned outdoor shower and a 3,600-square foot basement — a room with more floor space than the existing home’s entire living quarters.

Those are just some of the amenities planned for the massive renovation of the Romneys’ home in the tony La Jolla neighborhood of San Diego, according to plans on file with the city.

A project this ambitious comes with another feature you don’t always find with the typical fixer-upper: its own lobbyist, hired by Romney to push the plan through the approval process.

And they say this man has no passion

1. Scandalous! This is a campaign issue

Along with everything Meh Rmoney has said on the campaign trail, this paints a portrait of a person exquisitely unsuited to govern a country where 99% are hurting.
