    The story:

    Romney targeted over plans for growth — of his house | Front Row Washington

    Personally I do not get the reason why this is such a big deal in a negative way. By increasing the size of his house he is probably creating more jobs than congress can right now.

    He needs:

    Labor (carpenters, masons, plumbers, electricans)
    Materials (wood, concrete, metals, wire, fixtures)
    Furnishings (carpets, furniture, art, appliances)
    HVAC (AC, heating, water heaters)

    Look at all the people making money because he is expanding his house. Each of them pay taxes, and Romeny will now pay more property taxes due to the increased value of his house.

    Isn't this better than the government increasing his taxes and spending much of it on bloated buracracy? The goverment is going to get its cut anyway, why not let it go through some other people first?

    What Romney does with his house is his own business.

    If he needs a good architect he should get a hold of John Edwards.
