Romney Extends Public Review Process for Mansion Expansion

Architects hired to remodel Mitt Romney's La Jolla Shores home are giving the public additional time to review the presidential candidate's mansion expansion.

The project calls for demolishing Romey's existing $12 million, single-story 3,009 square-foot home to make room for a two-story, 11,062 square-foot mansion. Plans for Romney's rebuild include a 3,668 square-foot basement and a 692 square-foot garage.

Initially, the last day for the public to have a chance to comment on the project was Friday, September 9. However, that changed when Camila von Bommel from La Jolla-based architectural firm, Island Architects, filed an extension on September 7, which added three additional weeks. The deadline for public comments is now September 27.

Romney is brain dead and will never be elected president when he pulls boneheaded moves like this one.

Mark my words, he will not be moninated.

I don't disagree that he won't be president, but what is it about his architect filing an extension that extends the deadline for public comment by 3 weeks that demonstrates a boneheaded decision by Romney that shows he is braindead?

Sept. 9, 2011

For me, the boneheadedness stems from proposing a "3,668 square-foot basement" in LA JOLLA!!!! Apparently Mitt (who names their kid Mitt??) is homesick for Michigan or Massachusetts?

Wow! The Reader story by Matt Potter is cited in Politico's March 27 story on Romney's renovation project: link text
