Mitt Made Fun of Kerry for Big House

Buzzfeed’s Andrew Kaczynski strikes again.  He’s been finding embarrassing old video and transcripts of the Republican presidential candidates.

His latest is Mitt attacking John Kerry in 2004 for having a big house:  “There’s a senator from my state who wants to get elected president.  I don’t know why he would want to do that because he would have to move into a smaller house.”

This comes at a time when the oceanfront mansion Mitt is building in La Jolla, California is getting a lot of attention for features like an elevator for his cars and a 3,600 square-foot finished basement.  Mitt paid $12 million for the property — and is tearing down the existing house.

Very expensive European pot meet very expensive European kettle.



Andrew Kaczynski of Buzzfeed has been unearthing all kinds of embarrassing, long-buried stuff this cycle that gives the Republican primary candidates severe headaches and indigestion.

Now he’s gotten hold of John McCain’s 2008 opposition research file on Mitt Romney.  It has about 30 pages of anti-Bain material that sound very much like the charges Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich have been making about Bain, charges that McCain has been denouncing as “anathema to everything we believe in.”  To which Sarah Palin reacted, “Anathema?  Isn’t that The StarSpangled Banner?”

Since John McCain has endorsed Mitt, that 2008 file is about the last thing either of them wanted to surface.
