Sir Willard Romney jetted into San Diego, a city not foreign to him because one of his many mansions is located on the sea in La Jolla.

Willard is planning on bulldozing the current home because it's not big enough, and he will re-build a $10 million, 11,000 sq. foot show-mansion within its place.

Contained within these posh digs by the sea will be a car elevator which alone costs roughly the same as the average American family makes in a year. Not he cars, just the elevator.

In fact, Willard hired a planning lobbyist for the purpose of making sure his renovation plans got approved by the La Jolla planning commission.

Tomorrow, Willard will jet off to Las Vegas to appear with comedian-psychopath cum bloviating bad toupe-clad Birther Mr. Donald Trump.

It's interesting that Willard chose John McCain as his sidekick today, as McCain also has one of his many homes located here in the San Diego region - a luxury condo on Coranado.

It was during the 2008 campaign against Obama when McCain forgot how many houses he owned.

I have nothing against a wealthy President, Obama and Clinton after all are both wealthy men, but it seems as though Romey has one nothing to get in touch with average Americans.

Some wealthy politicians either were poor or midle class at one time or, if not, they have worked hard to interact with and get to know average Americans.

Willard, however, has chosen to stay isolated from anything beneath his enormous wealth level and has chosen to keep himself cloistered in a bubble.

This isolation shows starkly in the clueless and inane things Willard has been saying on the campaign trail.

He is too out of touch, and a plutocrat.
