Robin Abcarian has a nice look at Mitt Romney's California haunts, which include his house on the beach in La Jolla and his neighbors' perspectives at living next door to the potential, future president.
"Emotions are highly charged on the subject," said Romney neighbor Sear, who said he was approached recently at a funeral by a another neighbor who was incensed that a Romney victory would result in restricted beach access. "He started screeching at me to the point that his daughter had to say, 'Dad, stop it,'" Sear said.
.... At least one neighbor thought having the Romneys nearby was good for property values.
Jeff Lepore, a Poway real estate investor, said "the possibility of living next door to a potential president" factored into his decision to buy the beachfront house next to the Romneys.
