I can't take Obama seriously when he talks about people who have made enough money--since he apparently made $5.5 million last year--but I confess that there are times when you can understand why, in a nation where millions of people can't afford health insurance, some people see red (and start to think red) when you see ads like this:
How cute! Matching Ferraris! A convertible for the nice days, and a coupe for the rainy days!

I also am selling my 07 F430 Coupe with custom interior from the Ferrari factory.
I suppose if Ferraris were reasonably cheap (you know, $30,000 for a slightly used one), I could consider owning one. But when someone has $400,000 worth of transportation, reality really should arrive.
