Barack And Michelle Purchase Fourth Palatial Estate, & This One Cost Nearly $15 Million
[Flag & Cross] Barack Obama: the every man.

Because average Americans can afford homes in Washington DC, Chicago, California, and Martha’s Vineyard, right?

How is it that Dems like Barry and Bernie Sanders "fight for" the poorest Americans while knowing they have multiple millions in the bank?

Mercury News:

The 6,892-square-foot property sits on 29 acres across from the Edgartown Great Pond. Built in 2001, it boasts seven bedrooms and nine baths and a bathhouse. There are two wings with a private deck off the master suite. It also features a pool, sprawling lawn and a beach, among many other amenities.

Thomas E. Leclair with LandVest MV is the current listing agent.

The Obamas apparently rented the home over the summer and are purchasing it from Boston Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck, according to the report.

Former first couple Barack and Michelle Obama are buying a mansion in Edgartown, Mass. for $14.8 million, reports

Martha’s Vineyard has been a longtime favorite vacation spot for the former president and first lady, and now the Obamas will have a permanent home there.

#16  @varmint - unlikely, they won't tolerate the weather and isolation in a MV February. Besides, the last net worth I saw was 135 million. The DC house is just another investment.

#15  When the DOJ finally gets around to investigating Google for its many abuses of our competition laws - let alone its manipulation of our public debate and its interventions into the information dissemination that's part of our electoral process - this corrupt buffoon's revolving door with Google execs will be Exhibit A.

No one's been paying attention, but this coziness between Silicon Valley and Obama - and the payoffs now accruing to his bank account from the likes of Netflix - is the worst DC corruption scam since Teapot Dome.

Only corruption can explain the unconscionable, baffling refusal of our competition authorities to investigate and crack down on the many flagrant abuses of its market power that this company has engaged in, for more than a decade, as a standard operating procedure.

The Europeans fined them again and again for their serial abuses. They're in plain sight, known to everyone in the ad industry. And yet NOTHING has been done - NOTHING - by our Justice Department.

#14  If Trump announced the National Illegal immigrant holding and processing centre was in Martha's vineyard he'd get 100% get re-elected

#13  Sounds like a good place to drop off all the illegal aliens and cartel we regularly arrest along the mexican border. Oh and allow them to keep their Obama supplied weapons.
I'm sure the estate doesn't have anything as devisive as walls or locks on the doors.

#12  ....This is clearly Fake News and unpossible. Obama and his buddies have warned us for years that we are just around the corner from a climate disaster, which specifically includes rising sea levels. According to them, that place is going to be underwater in a couple of years - how could someone as brilliant as the Lightbringer make a mistake like that?

sarc/OFF, of course.

#8  I read another article where it said that Wyc (Celtics owner) sold the property to the Obamas at a discount. A bit late on the poorly disguised in-kind campaign contribution.

#7  But, as Moochelle pointed out, your slice of the pie is already big enough, or maybe even too big...

#6  Joe Biden campaign speaking engagements ?

#5  ...from the US Treasury, yeah. It's the part time jobs on the outside that is where the real money is.

#4  Anyone know how they afforded all that?

Thought Presidential salary was 400,000 per year...

#3  So, all that global warming and rising seas thingy was just another con job, right? Why would you buy expensive coastal property if you really believe that crap? /rhetorical question

#2  The bright side is maybe they will move away from the house only a few blocks from the White House. Apparently the last two years of trying to impeach Trump, they've finnaly given up.

#1  I am certain the neighbors be delighted when they drive up to their first Secret Service traffic divert, road block, or vehicle search.
