    That's Rep. Sonny Bono's and Rep. Mary Bono's old Congressional district.
    Probably a safe district then.

The man has made lots of money peddling his nonsense self-adulation books to an adoring, imbecilic public, so let the man buy a nice house with the proceeds and hopefully stay in California, golfing, and perhaps preaching at one of California's many institutions of lower learning. It's all good.
    His wife is also an attorney, and successful attorneys make good bank.

    Personally, I don't see the story here unless the government is buying it for him. He needs to live somewhere in 2017.

    Yep, and he can't mess up California any more than it already is.

    Close to golf courses? Why does it need to be a liberal/conservative thing? Do you think about the political makeup of your neighborhood when looking at houses?

    Or maybe....it's part of the big conspiracy....

    No, I don't remember that.

    But Sonny frequently showed up at California conservative fund raising events in SoCal all of the time. That's where I got to know him. He was fun to talk to and as a speaker he kept the people entertained.

    BTW: Obama may be able to lie and get away with it, but it doesn't mean everyone can.

    Rating: Sonny Bono was rated 96% by American Conservative Union (Lifetime Score)

    And Sonny wasn't a Senator but a Congressman in the House of Represenatives.

    I wonder how Michelle Obama is going to be able to handle the neighborhood ? You can stand on a street corner and not see a black face for weeks.

    And if the Obama's decide to go into Palm Springs on the weekend for what ever, dining, shopping they're going to be in for a cultural shock. If Obama's Secret Service driver drops the car keys, he's going to kick them all the way to San Bernardino before he bends over to pick them up.

    No, but Michael Jordan's Chicago's house is still on the market with a full size basketball court and many other luxuries. Lots of room for Obama's secret service and staff. However he would have to open his purse and shell out more money, the price has been reduced to $16M

    The White House isn't exactly in the ghetto either. But so what? They shouldn't be able to move in to that area because they're black?

    What about golf courses?

    Seriously, if the point of the thread is that Obama's spending so much money on a house, spending more isn't got to make it better.

    Obama is much better at spending other people's money and not his own.
    Chicago has fabulous golf courses in near by communities, some big events have been held at them.

    However Chicago people are not happy with Obama, best he go else where
