Longtime political strategist David Axelrod, who helped advise President Obama’s presidential run in 2008 and is serving as communications director for Obama’s re-election campaign, has paid $1.7 million for a four-bedroom, 3,320-square-foot condo unit in a high-rise condo along Michigan Avenue…
The new seven-room unit he purchased first had been listed as part of an estate sale last May for $2.25 million, and was reduced to $1.9 million in November. Features in the 42nd-floor unit include views to the south and east, including of the lake. The unit also has 4-1/2 baths, a marble foyer, his and hers baths in the master suite and one garage space.
Sounds like a bargain! Just the sort of frugality and practicality we’ve come to expect from the Obama administration.
This purchase had to have been in the works long before the disastrous week Axelrod has been having. Is he screwing everything up right now because he’s already looking at the door? Has he run out of… Hope?
Hey, wait a second. I thought money was bad? It sure is when Republicans get their grubby paws on it. I guess “99%” is less about math than credulity. There’s one born every minute, and David Axelrod has the marble foyer to prove it.
P.S. As regular DC Trawler commenter Partymanrandy (his real name) notes:
When deciding who to vote for, I sat down and took a look at the issues. Obama didn’t seem to understand very basic things about the economy. Gas prices had doubled under his Presidency. The deficit had been over $1T every year of his Presidency. He sold guns to mexican drug cartels. He was constantly trying to blame others for his problems.
….But then I found out that Mitt Romney wasn’t poor.
