PC LOAD LETTER: Name a President that wasn't part of the elite, either socially or financially.


Truman.

It's not like he had a major interest in a firm, placed his assets in a supposedly "blind" trust, and proceeded to give them billions of unquestioned, uncompetetive contracts in two war zones.

Pocket Ninja:
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.

First of all, Republican may be a proper noun, but "right" is not.

Secondly, "If there's one thing the Right can't stand, it's hypocrisy"I'm pretty sure you're being sarcastic there, so I'll leave it alone.

Finally, name me one economist who's said that simply writing a check to the government is a good idea.  Republicans are bizarre in the notion that the liberal wealthy will be suckered with the notion that "If you love taxes so much, why don't you just write a check?" with the goofy notion that if this happens, the GOP will have all the money and Democrats will be broke.  And then the GOP can do whatever they want because liberals have also gotten rid of all of their guns, too.

But seriously, though, name me ONE economist who's said that will help.  I know that Neil Cavuto tells people "If you feel so guilty about being rich..." but that's proof that he doesn't think that it will help.

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


You mean the imaginary 47% of people who don't pay their taxes?  Ugh...that talking point will never go away.

How ever much it is, I'm willing to bet he got it honestly. On the other hand, how much is Glenn Beck worth these days? Or Ann Coulter?

vygramul: Danger Mouse: Romeny runs for office and every day you hear about his wealth, how much money he has, and rumors are spread about his tax returns.

Actually ask what a sitting President is worth and the libtards scream.

Republicans whine about how it's none of our business.

Unless, of course, it's a Democrat. Then there's wailing and gnashing of teeth from conservitards.

Keep farking that chicken, baby - you know it wants it.


Where do you see the wailing and gnashing of teeth?

If someone points out the hypocrisy of the Left, then that's considered wailing and gnashing of teeth, chicken farking, and all the rest of the standard muck?  Go it.

Parthenogenetic: Pocket Ninja:   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.

It's worse than just hypocrisy.

Don't you think it's suspicious the government gives such a wide range of possible values for his ill-gotten wealth?  I mean, 1.8 to 5.8 million dollars?  Let's just assume the real figure is the average, which is... *counts on fingers* about six million dollars.

What job did 0bama have before stealing the Presidency?  He proudly brags that he was a community organizer.  How much does a community organizer make?  Enough that he can pocket a nest egg of six million dollars?  Riiiiigggght.

I wonder what other kind of job involves wandering the mean streets of the ghetto, interacting with lots of people in dark alleyways and deserted street corners, and making a lot of money with shady transactions.  Yeahhhh.  That's what the lamestream driveby in-the-tank liberal media won't tell you.


The ObamaS. She is an Attorney. He wrote a bestseller. He makes 400K a year with free room and board.

By comparison: Dubya and cronies forced the taxpayers of Tarrant county, TX to buy him a shiny new baseball stadium, even though the former one wasn't very old. He and his cronies took the land around it through eminent domain. Dubya put in 100K (which was supposedly given to him) to buy the Rangers,  and walked away with 14.9 million bucks. See the difference?
 
2013-05-16 12:02:01 PM

ManateeGag: why is it seem  that only the right refers to Obama as "dear leader" or "our liege".  What kind of complex do they have, anyway?


It's as though the majority of Americans voted for something else, and political allies on both a state and federal level appointed him in an extra-democratic manner.

Okay, I'm being silly.  Silly silly silly.

Satan's Bunny Slippers: Dust: YodaBlues: jehovahs witness protection: He's going to need that money for smokes and baggy pants male hookers in the federal prison.

You're not even trying anymore.

You say this like he was ever trying to begin with.

jwp has always been trying.  Very, very trying.


Just look at how many bites he got. Those of who know what the ignore button is for would appreciate it if everyone would quit quoting morons without a single coherent thought to contribute.

I'm totally fine with you asking. Ask away. The information has been reported.

When you point at that information and say "SEE? SEE?" when he isn't worth more than any other high-profile politician on a national level (and much less than many), that's when you start to sound like a whiny, deranged farkwit.

"You're not trying" is not a "bite".

REALLY, THAT'S JUST RACIST AND YOU ONLY SAID THAT BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT IS BLAH AND AND AND STUDY IT OUT YOU BASTID!!!!11!!

is a bite

For those of us who use the ignore feature, there's a setting so that you will never see them if they are quoted.  You could use that.

"a 30-year mortgage on their Chicago home, at an interest rate of 5.625 percent"

If Obama cannot even refinance his home how can he be expected to run the economy?!? Let's impeach him!

That's a logical impossibility. Besides, what would be the point? Don't we generally want people who are capable of running their own lives successfully to be in charge of running the country?

It's the same complaining Romney got. If it's hypocritical to defend, so, too, is it hypocritical to complain.

But you keep right on farking that chicken.

Well, I would go farther and mention the gallows, but the senate will never allow barry to be tried for treason.


Do you really think he will tried for anything? Are you seriously that stupid? Jeez look at who I'm asking. For that one must commit a crime and no one has yet been able to provide evidence of any actual wrongdoing.

That's not what I recall from John Kerry's Presidential campaign.

Next time we have a Democratic Presidential candidate who inherited $100m+ and then said that rich people are already paying too much in taxes, let me know.

What about the alcoholism treatment? I ask not just for jwp, but for other farkers who need such help.


Well, since I don't drink that comment is way off. AND, obamacare isn't and won't do anything for me. I worked my ass off for decades so they call me privileged and what I paid in to the system is for lazy bastards liberals who refused to get off their asses.

Lost Thought 00: 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


Came here to say this.

Obama said what his assets were.   He had disclosed many years of tax returns.     His finances are about as open as they could conceivably could be.

/Truth be known,  Obama's stuff is probably worth far more than currently advertised if only because when it does come time to sell them they would have belonged to a former president.     And indeed his greatest financial asset is not on any ledger book: it is that he is president.  That will allow him to collect many millions after he leaves the White House as has every president since Ford who pioneered this.

//Funny how conservative seem to forget the simplest things about economics in these rants.   Who does not know that the dollar value of something is not really determined until it is sold?

Surely, he plans on depositing all excess wealth directly into the EBT accounts of the huddled masses. Surely.
 
2013-05-16 12:21:11 PM

Yes please: I find it ridiculous that the leader of the free world is paying a 5.625% interest rate on a 30 year mortgage.


If he re-fis, even if his rate is high-3's, he automatically got a sweetheart deal from his cronies in the banking industry.

// better question: if he's worth so much, why not just pay off the note with some of the cash he has laying around?
// I know there are reasons not to do this, but not being a homeowner, I'm not intimately familiar with them

Go with the high end and say it is $5.8 million. Is that an obscene net worth for the leader of our country? Some moron who got drafted by the Raiders was paid $26 million before flunking out of the NFL and retiring at the age of 24.

In all seriousness, what would it take for a sitting President to be tried, convicted, and sentenced to pound-me-in-the-ass federal prison? If Obama held a new conference, got up to the podium, announced "Ladies and Gentlemen, I am going to murder an orphan child", then pulled out a 9mm and a baby and shot it in the head.....maybe?
 
2013-05-16 12:59:50 PM

kronicfeld: 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.
