(WTOP)   How much money are the Obamas worth? Well, it's somewhere between $1.8 million and $5.8 million. Oh, you'd like him to be more specific? Well, who are you to ask questions of our liege?   (wtop.com) divider line 239

Smells like another scandal to me! Why does Obama keep racking up all these scandals?

If you'd like him to be more specific, you should petition your representatives in the federal government to revise the disclosure forms to require more specificity. Of course, they won't, because then THEY would have to be more specific as well. But that is probably still Obama's fault somehow.
 
2013-05-16 08:47:16 AM
They wouldn't have dared to ask this of Romney.  Who has that much lost in his couch cushions.

Look, buddy. If there's one thing the Right can't stand, it's hypocrisy. That's why they have no patience for people like George Soros who call for "tax reform" and yet CHOOSE not to donate all their extra money to the IRS. You know that you're allowed to do that, right? If you feel like the government should have more money or that your taxes aren't high enough, you can give all your extra money to the IRS. Hell, they'll need it pay bail with all these investigations going on. But what does it say when a man like Soros wants all of US to pay more, but he's not willing to give any more in the first place? It says HYPOCRITE.

And Al Gore. Don't even get me started on Al Gore and all his environmentalists goons. These people want us to live in the dark ages and not have electricity and worship Mother Earth, which they call Gaya, no surprise there, and yet they live in their 20,000 square foot mansions and jet all over the world in their jet planes burning oil just for the heck of it. "Do as I say, not as I do," that's the mantra. Well, you know what that says? HYPOCRITE. That's what.

And so here we are with Obama's taxes. What was it that liberals were wetting their pants over during the 2012 election? What was that, again? Oh, that's right -- Mitt Romney's taxes. His net worth. They wanted to know everything about him, every little worker he fired and every little corporation he chopped up and every little show horse he purchased for his wife. Tell us more, tell us more, they kept screaming. I've told you what I have to, he'd intone. Not enough, not enough, they'd whimper. I'm following the law, he'd say. We don't care about the law, we want to know, they'd lament. And on and on. And now Obama can shroud his untold millions under the veil of "paperwork" and "required disclosure?" Does that seem like anything to you? It does to me, and I'll tell you what that is: HYPOCRISY.

Some, like Obama, didn't start out that way but by the time they run for office everyone is. I don't begrudge the very wealthy. What I have a problem people born to wealth run for office. The problem is with is when they run for president saying they know what it is like to struggle and understand the job market. No they do not.

The same people outraged by this were also outraged that anyoned dared to ask Romney to disclose his tax returns.

And he still manages to not shiat all over the 47%.  It's like America is actually composed of different types of people!

$5.8 million?  Mitt Romney makes that much money in an afternoon spent sitting around the pool.  That's why we need to have someone successful in the White House instead of these seven figure loser wannabes.

We could ask the IRS how much Obama is worth, but since Obama single handedly runs the IRS, he can keep that stuff secret.

I don't think you want to know.  He seems rather unhinged and sad.  It's like that morning when a boy wakes up to be a man, and the first thing he realizes is that his hands are too big to play with his Polly Pocket playset.

A leading Federal politician worth between $1.8 and $5.8 million, you say?

How about John Boehner?

Net Worth: From $1,787,113 to $5,455,000 (only good enough to be ranked 85th in House)
Assets: 104 totaling $1,787,113 to $5,455,000

Fighting infection now but getting a lil better. My right arm and leg aren't working very well, so it takes me longer to make snarky comments these days.
 
2013-05-16 10:19:12 AM
Because most investments do not have a firm fixed price attached to them until they are liquidated, and thus are difficult to asses.

that said, he is worth an order of magnitude less than either Boehner or McConnel

They're not alone either -- EVERY US politician reports their assets this way.  Since most of those assets fluctuate in value over time, they mostly just report an asset class (real estate, stocks, etc), which in turn are categorized into an approximate range of values.  To try to gin up "controversy" over this is just naive.

I concur. But I particularly like how the idea of him being worth 6 million is somehow something problematic, when you remember that the last two guys the Republicans put forwards were worth about six to twenty times as much.
