Something Strange Happens When Democrats Leave Office

[Note: This article was written by Derrick Wilburn (Derrick Wilburn is the Founder and Chairman of the Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives and

As they prepared for their exodus from the White House, the Obamas are joining another rarified club – that of the ruling liberal elite class owning multiple ultra-expensive homes in highly exclusive communities that none in America can afford save the one-percenters.

The very same one-percenters whom they rant and rail against as being the greedy, ego-centric millionaires who simply have too much.

Following the likes of Bill and Hillary Clinton who, despite Hillary’s claim earlier this year that they left the White House dead broke, they somehow managed to educate their daughter at Stanford, Oxford, NYU and Columbia; acquire a $1.7 million estate in Chappaqua; and a $2.85 million mansion in Georgetown.

And Bernie Sanders, who shortly after ending his 2016 presidential bid, bought his third home – a $600,000 lakefront vacation house on Lake Champlain.

Barack and Michelle have grandiose real estate designs of their own.

Earlier this year it was revealed that, upon his leaving the presidency, the Obamas will not be returning to Chicago. They have, instead, moved into a $6 million, 8,200-square foot, 9-bedroom, 12-bathroom mansion in Kalorama, one of the District’s most posh, desirable and exclusive neighborhoods located in the heart of one of America’s wealthiest zip codes.

With daughter Malia off to college, that leaves just Barack, Michelle, and Sasha until the younger daughter graduates high school in 2018. Nothing says “I care about climate change, energy consumption, and our CO2 footprint” more than keeping an 8,200-square foot house heated and air conditioned year round for just three people.

The hypocrisy and ‘do as I say, not as I do’ hubris of all these wealthy climate change proponents is sickening. By the way, the Obama’s new home is just two doors down from Clinton campaign manager, John Podesta, who recently lost the most significant campaign of his life.

But that’s not the new news.

We have now learned Barack and Michelle are the proud owners of yet another home — this one on the Left Coast. As reported by Page Six and other sources, the Obamas have a new home in Rancho Mirage, California.

Rancho Mirage is a popular golf getaway, which would explain its attraction to the ex-golfer-in-chief. By some counts this makes the Obama’s fifth home.

Also from PageSix, The Obamas are also said to have bought a holiday getaway in Obama’s childhood home state of Hawaii.

Now… how many American families own five of anything, let alone houses? Let alone houses in Hawaii that they see once a year or so.

Most of us are blessed if we’re able to rent a hotel room or condo on Hawaii once a decade.

The relocation habits of Democrats leaving office is very interesting. For example; having been voted out of office in 2014, Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu didn’t return to Louisiana. She instead made her 7,300-square foot $2.5 million Washington DC mansion her new home.

Rather than returning to Little Rock, when Bill and Hill left the White House, they chose the liberal, ultra-wealthy haven of Chappaqua, New York, with its average household income of $285,801 and average household net worth of $1,564,366 for their new residence.

Now it’s the Obama’s turn. Would they go back to Chicago to live amongst the ‘little people’, and take their chances becoming yet another statistic (total number shot as of this writing this year: 3,961)?

No, not so much. They, like the others, have moved into a private, secured community to live in a protective high-walled house, big enough for five families, where they will host cocktail parties for golf buddies and other millionaire and billionaire friends.

Yet like the Sanders, Landrieus and Clintons of the world, they will accept exorbitant five-, six-, even seven-figure speaking fees to give speeches about how the rich in our country are steadily pulling away from everyone else and increasingly isolating themselves.

About how the concentration of wealth at the top is allowing some Americans to own multiple houses, vacation when and as they please, and live lives most of the rest of the country cannot fathom.

They’ll blather on and on about how the rich are a big part of the problems in our country. They will, in part, be right.
