Obama’s car czar building tacky Vineyard home

Posted by danishova on May 18, 2009

The New York Post sees this a bit differently than I do:

STEVEN Rattner, the auto industry adviser to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, is flagrantly thumbing his nose at President Obama‘s call for Americans to make sacrifices in the collapsing economy.

Rattner is moving full-speed ahead with construction of a lavish, $15 million summer home in the Lambert’s Cove area of West Tisbury on Martha’s Vineyard — a palatial mansion he’s had in the works since 2006. It’s caused a furor among wealthy Vineyard residents, who’ve called the planned 15,500-square-foot project far too big and gaudy, The Post’s Mark DeCambre reports.

I haven’t seen any evidence that Barack and Michelle are doing anything to “sacrifice” either.  And if the American people begin to see Democrats as sanctimonious hypocrites thanks to people like Steve Rattner (and Rev. Jeremiah Wright), then I hope they build bigger and bigger houses. And lots of them.
