President Obama

He's NOT Buying

Rancho Mirage House

There are lots of reports circulating that President Obama is in escrow to buy a house in the exclusive Rancho Mirage gated community which the likes of Frank Sinatra and Bob Hope called home -- NOT TRUE.

The house in question is listed at $4.25 million and escrow is supposed to close at the end of the month. 

Sources close to the President who are familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... he and Michelle have never even seen the house and have definitely not made an offer.  What's more ... we're told the Obamas will NOT live in the desert when his presidency ends.

And there's this ... the Obamas have relied heavily on their famed interior decorator Michael S. Smith. We're told 6 months ago someone who was looking at the house asked Smith to come along to give his opinion.  

We're told Smith made it clear ... he didn't like the house AT ALL.  It's pushed up against the mountain, it doesn't have a lot of light and it's just not that stylish.  The buyer passed.

Obama cannot afford it now. He has to wait until his first book and the paid speaking engagements start up.

2 more years man... then we can rebuild this economy. Just let him do whatevers... talk shows, sporting events, whatever he does all day. But 2 more years and he'll be gone. If he lives like a king later on then so be it, at least he's out of the office. Truth.

Even if true, President of the United States should be focusing on foreign relations and national issues right now. And whomever started this lie, well, maybe they should be found at the bottom of the swimming pool.

I told y'all yesterday that he isn't moving there - it will come down to what Sasha wants - does she want to stay in DC and finish school in Maryland or does she want to go back to Chicago and go to the school she once went to. Milia will in college when Obama leaves the Whitehouse.
