It turns out that Red State Romney is settling in the bluest of states — California. Newsman Hank Plante writes about it today in the San Francisco Chronicle:
But it is also in La Jolla where the local Democratic councilwoman was just re-elected, giving the San Diego City Council a 5-4 Democratic majority.
And it is in La Jolla where the longtime Republican congressman was just beaten by a Democrat.
And it is in La Jolla where, according to the New York Times, there are six gay households within a three-block radius of the Romneys’ $12 million home.
This is not to mention that La Jolla is part of the bluest of blue states, California, where Republican registration just fell below 30 percent, and where voters said “yes” to a tax increase on people just like the Romneys.
So what gives? If you are the Romneys, then why not settle in a red state where people love you? What’s wrong with Alabama, Mississippi or even Utah? Simply put, when it comes down to it, Mitt and Ann Romney seem to want the same things that so many others seek in California living: a tolerant, open, environmentally beautiful place to live that we’re not afraid to pay for. They would rather be close to gourmet pizza than Chick-fil-A.
I’m with Plante. Romney should pack up his silver spoon and move his pampered ass to Tupelo, Mississippi, so he can live among the people he pandered too against gays, and Latinos, and liberated women — you know, the kind of folks who populate California. Even in defeat, the man is a hypocrite.
