I honestly can't imagine anyone caring
 
2013-10-19 08:50:44 AM
Maybe they'll invite Walter Mondale over for a beer.

Ay dios mio. Maria, look at their home.
It is so plain. [scoff] It looks like,
one of those mormon guys' houses.
But, you know, who understands those mormon guys? *scoff*
They only post those, because,
It looks like total midwest, 'kay?
I mean, the decor, is just so cheesy.
I can't believe it's just so bland, it's like,
out there, I mean - gross. Look!
It's just so ... white!

They obviously don't have cats, or that felt ball wreath would be on the floor.

I always read that word as "printertest."
 
2013-10-19 10:57:39 AM
really? you're going to shiat on Mitt Romney's kid's decorating taste? and that slide is pretty sweet so...yeah...
 
2013-10-19 10:58:20 AM
That looks like one of those houses, with lots of cute things for children, that the children are absolutely, positively not allowed to touch under any circumstances.  It's its own special kind of hell for a child.

The author appears upset over something that matters to nobody.
 
2013-10-19 10:58:49 AM
That's all misc. crap they have in their house. I'm not certain why anyone would care about any of that outside of their family.

That article looks like some kind of weird stalker project.

Binders full of women's projects
 
2013-10-19 11:03:14 AM
Looks like the kind of family that loves their children.  That's an alien concept to me, granted, but I always assumed that I was the weird guy.
 
2013-10-19 11:03:28 AM
I want a slide.
 
2013-10-19 11:07:46 AM
i'll take the slide any day---and in fact, make it a permanant fixture---just have a second set of stairs in the back of the house

Anyone else think the choice of laundry room wallpaper is to deliberately cover up blood stains while they clean up after gruesome murders that they commit? Or that he has an Old Time Bordello Fetish?
 
2013-10-19 11:20:00 AM
You've got to be brimming with hate and unemployed or at least have no hobbies to come up with this stuff.
 
2013-10-19 11:22:38 AM
Haters gonna hate. Would have loved that slide as a kid. Hell, if I had it now it would still get use once in a while, probably with alcohol involved.
 
2013-10-19 11:23:35 AM
I bet they had The Gimp securely locked away in the dungeon for the photo shoot.
 
2013-10-19 11:24:13 AM
I want a stair slide too.

It's a typical, bland, let's show how quirky and individual we are without drawing outside the lines kind of house.

I'm sure there are tens of millions of married women feeling tingly in their nethers about doing something similar.

I suggest you are wrong.  As support for this theory... on at least one occasion they converted their staircase into a FARKING SLIDE for the children!

I suspect those kids run around and tear stuff up as much as children of lesser social economic classes.  In fact, they are probably afforded a greater opportunity to do so because the Romenys wealth affords them the ability to have a maid to clean up after the kids.  And, in the event the kids break something, they have enough funds to replace it.

Geez, the election was over almost 1 year ago. Can we stop with the Romney bashing?
 
2013-10-19 11:32:00 AM
I'd like to hate on the Romneys... but this is stupid. Looks like a clean, safe house to raise children.

Any loony LDS indoctrination imposed on those kids is another story. This article is weak.

I know quite a few rich people who live like slobs, or otherwise have no taste.    Money does not buy class, just ask the ghost of Elvis.

It seems to me they have a lot of space, but no real clear idea how to go about decorating it. I've seen posh, and opulent and Cracker-Barrel cheesy decorating, but this is just a case of "I have no idea how I want this to look so I'll buy random crap that strikes my eye and put it....here."

Just hire a gay guy. He won't bite, and you'll be happy with the result.

I once dated a chick who rented a room from a gay guy she had known for some time. This guy had such an awesome house. Very stylish, not all poofy or overdone, and everything looked like it belonged.

I would so hire that guy to decorate my home if I could afford it.

My house is much nicer than yours. Would you like to see my car elevator?

My mom (Catholic, not Mormon) came from that school of thought. My grandmother made me a beautiful doll bassinet out of produce basket. My mom put it away because it was "too nice" for a child to play with. That wasn't the only thing she did that to, but that's the one that always stuck in my craw. By the way, when we sold my mom's house after her death, it was still there. Moths had gotten to the fabric and the cheap produce basket was in poor shape.

Let your kids play with their toys, dammit!

I'd really hate for pictures of my house to get posted all over the Internet. As much fun as it is to take digs at the uber-rich, my house isn't even clean.

It's pretty standard Mormon culture, from what I've seen.  Even if you inherit a lot of money like Mitt, the Mormon culture is so inwardly focused that they don't aspire to emulate European wealth or style.  It doesn't really occur to them, because it isn't connected to their world.

They might travel the world, but they still go home and get everything at Target and Kohl's.  They just get a house ten times as big and get ten times as much stuff from Target and Kohl's.

The majority of Mormondom is lower middle class, since they:

1) Get a late start in their career because of their mission
2) The church urges (STRONGLY URGES) them to get married immediately upon returning from their mission
3) And to immediately start having children (the more the better) even if you are starting college
4) The 10% tithe

Pretty hard to get ahead with a wife and kids to support while you're trying to study.  Then you gotta get a job in the inter-mountain west.

Mormons have something against Texas?
