How does this fit in with the White House’s new Obama moniker, “warrior of the working class?”

Old Saybrook, Conn (WTNH) – It was rumored that President Barack Obama has considered purchasing the late Katharine Hepburn’s 8,300-square-foot mansion in the posh Fenwick section of Old Saybrook.

Some folks living in the Fenwick section of Old Saybrook were not surprised by the recent rumors.

Marge Taylor says news President Barack Obama may be looking at Katherine Hepburn’s old house is nothing new. She says his daughters Sasha and Malia have already been seen around the neighborhood because Sasha is friends with a girl who’s family has a home here.

“The daughters go by here with their bicycles. They’re lovely girls,” she said.

Let them go there. Far better than reciding at 1600 Pennyslvania Avenue. Let’s help make it happen this year.

He probably watched “The Aviator” and when he saw that scene where Hepburn’s mother said they’re all socialists, he knew that was home.

Probably met her in public school, right?

After the collapse ... the day will come when us commoners come and take back what has been stolen by Congresses insider activity. It was immorally taken from the taxpaying people, it will be ours one day again.

I wonder what the good people of the neighborhood think about sharing their street with a family of color.

Somehow, I doubt there will be any reports of yankee racism.

Obama just wants to live in the state from where his social security number orginated. That would be a new experience for him, having never lived there before.

He’s probably just looking for an address that matches his social security number.

That's what I was thinking.

Or he is following the Clinton model and picking a state friendly to a Michelle Obama senate seat (it would have to be a big seat).

Would a economics expert please explain our dual currency system; to wit, explain progressive dollars v. conservative dollars?

I've heard that conservative dollars are dollars once owned by poor.. and are now in the hands of rich conservatives (technical term: One-Percenter wealth) while

progressive dollars are new, never-owned dollars that are honestly acquired by progressive multi-millionaires and progressive billionaires (Ninety-Nine-Percenter wealth).

Since there are several owners of his supposed Chicago mansion and no outright mention of his name on the deed, I wonder if he’s really going to be the sole owner of this place. Also, how many of my tax dollars will be used to purchase it.

Where did he get $18 million? He couldn’t afford to buy the lot in Chicago without from Rezko. I wonder how much the State Dept spent on his book. I know they bought a lot to put in embassies and such. How could we find out?

Heat that 8,300 sq/ft sucker for a couple of winters and he’ll whistle a different tune about higher oil prices. I don’t see him getting a windmill.

Reagan returned to California and both Bushes returned to Texas.

But the Clintons DON’T return to Arkansas.
and the Obamas have no desire to return to Chicago.

IOW they don’t really care about the people the helped them climb the political ladder.

Where did he get $18 million.

Look at MF global.

They “lost” 1.2 billion and corzine is one of our dictators buds.

baraq has spent the last three years spreadin the wealth around and you can bet the farm that he has done some spreadin to his own self.

He is livin large and gettin paid.

And NO ONE will confront him about any of the power grabbing and looting of our treasury.

And so it goes. The United States of Kenya.

Larry Sinclair says Bbammy is gay, Rhambo & Bammy went to the same ‘bathhouse’ in Chicaago, etc., ad nauseam..

Factor in that Bammy is a “halfrican” and we have “The Halfrican Queen”.

Wait over. ;-)
