Yes, people of Detroit. Mitt "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt" Romney is building a car elevator for his vacation house. It'll be located next to his money tasting room.

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.

Five score weeks ago, a great American, in whose domestic shadow we stand today, signed an application to the zoning committee of San Diego. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of wealthy people who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their parking at street level.

But one hundred weeks later, the rich man still is not free. One hundred weeks later, the life of the rich man is still sadly crippled by the manacles of city planning and the chains of bylaws. One hundred days later, the rich man lives on a lonely island of one-story garages in the midst of a vast ocean of multi-story buildings. One hundred weeks later, the rich still languishes in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile on his many spacious acres. And so we've come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.

In a sense we've come to our nation's capital to cash a check, and a large one at that. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir, though some of us had inheritances of much greater values. This note was a promise that all men, yes, rich men as well as merely well-to-do men, would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights" of "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Multi-Story Parking." It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of wealth are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the wealthy people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds", words that we had to have explained by our butler.

But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. And so, we've come to cash this check, a check that will give us the ability to place cars at heights that gravity strains to constrain.

[...]

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up on hydraulic lifts and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, but only some can afford vehicular elevation, and that's fine."

I have a dream that one day on the green hills of La Jolla, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together after a long day of building my goddamned car elevator.

I have a dream that one day even the state of California, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be able to marvel at the fact that I can walk from my Bentley straight into my bedroom.

I have a dream that my five sons will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the silliness of their names but by the technological advancement of their driveway!

I have a dream today!

Don't you all realize that when Mitt Romney gets a car elevator, it means car elevators will soon trickle down to all of us? I just hope he gets a yacht escalator next.

Think of all the jobs he is creating. Architects, Contractors, carpenters, electricians, plumbers, grounds keepers, maids, interior decorators, maids. I'd even wager that 2 of the entire lot are legal to work in the states. What a true patriot.

Alphakronik: I see why he is considered a "fiscal conservative".  I would have gone with the car escalator.


Good Lord, have you no pride? Elevator is bad enough, but escalator - one wonders when you shall take up bowling if you can sink to such depths. I myself prefer to have a team of mechanics flown in from Italy whenever I have the urge to see the Ferrari on one of the upper floors. They disassemble the car, then I fly in some Sherpas to transport the parts upstairs - very sure-footed people, the Sherpas - where my mechanics reassemble it and I am thus able to make that emergency dash to the lavatory in style and luxury. Now with the Rolls, you don't want Italians at all, you'd be better off with Englishmen, and though they tend to drink a bit they are easily provisioned, just a few turnips and a bit of beef. But Sherpas always.
