(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

UNHbeta19: You are right I am actually a barely literate Mongoloid that happened to find a computer. Does that deep place within you that tingles whenever you interpret the slightest slight towards Obama feel better now? I certainly hope so

UNHbeta19: coeyagi: UNHbeta19: coeyagi: UNHbeta19: BMulligan: UNHbeta19: Goddamn it.  It is comments in articles like this that really make me hate Fark (after 11 years of lurking or reading).  Before you even look in the comments you can tell it is going to just be full of apologists because it is Obama.

You do realize that the net worth of our elected public servants has been reported in this exact manner for years and years now, right? And that no one ever complained about it before, regardless of the president's party? And that you're a pathetic farkwit?

Kind of the point.   It has been reported in a 1950's fashion (check a box for where your asset value falls into) when we could have much more precise.  And people have complained.  And again proving my point about unintelligent, most basic possible thinking in these types of threads...

So, what you're saying is.... Obama should rewrite the form that he has to fill out?

Most basic possible thinking hits a home run!

//feel free to call the cops on me for just figuratively raping your ass

Not sure what your exact point is.  No reasonable person expects Obama to fill out a different form then all other presidents (in fact it would be illegal I would imagine).  However shouldn't this article illicit more of a discussion of whether it is an effective process, rather then making it "OBAMA GOOD, WHY YOU HATE OBAMA? YOU STUPID"

Read the first 5 comments and tell me that they provide, in any way, any sort of insightful or meaningful thought.  It is defending Obama when he has not been attacked, it is simply ridiculous.  My original point was that coming into these discussions you KNOW that that will be the Weenerss, which is depressing for a site that I actually used to see some interesting points and discussion.

If your whole assertion is that we are defending him instead of looking at the process, I agree. But who f*cking started it?  The article and subby, god damnit.  Why don't you go after them?  They're the bullsh*t a ...


You are if you defend by proxy (by not highlighting the fact) that a) the GOP and other cons have spend 5 f*cking years doing nothing but ripping on the President instead of their f*cking job and b) we get bombarded by sh*t headlines like this all the time, so we rip on subby and the other mongoloids who subscribe to that characterization.

Why don't you go after the instigators?  You have an agenda, you have no interest in root cause analysis so f*cking admit it and stop wasting our time.

Of all the "classic" trolling styles, I find this one - the unholy love child of willful obtuseness and concern trolling - to be perhaps the most tedious.

Agree with a) on many many levels....but this is not one of those cases.  As for b) again this would not have been an issue if it was reversed, so it is not disingenuous headlines that bother people but attacks on Obama

UNHbeta19: Tor_Eckman:

First five comments?

1.  Who cares?
2.  Perennially butthurt right wingers
3.  The jealousy is dripping off of you, subby.
Conservatives hate a self-made man.
4.  They sound uppity.
5.  Name a President that wasn't part of ...

My point was that they contributed nothing.
1.  Would be exact opposite if it was anybody with an (R)
2.  Pretty clear this person didn't read the article just jumping into the defense without having a clue as to what is going on
3-4: Just meaningless
5.  this one is actually a good point and kind of addresses an issue, not necessarily the one brought up, but one that our country really should think about for a bit (oh and Andrew Jackson would probably meet the criteria  although he had a lot of regional power due to his military service, so even he is debatable...)


I don't know if you need the "Welcome to Fark" pic or the "Well Bye" pic.

If you are outraged by posts that "contribute nothing" (in your expert, esteemed opinion) I don't know wtf you are doing here.  Maybe you should try /r/conservative.  Might be more to your liking.

Frankly, this thread was over after the very Boobies.  The rest is just masturbation.  Or in your case, manufactured outrage.

ManRay: 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.

Actually a better comparison would be the treatment Kerry got in 2004. He was richer than Romney was when he ran.


You mean making fun of Purple Heart Veterans and attacking his wife for being a wealthy heiress?

2013-05-16 03:52:31 PM  

Pocket Ninja: 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.

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 lame ...


You're about to tip over your high-chair.
 
2013-05-16 03:54:25 PM  
It's going to be great in the next Presidential election when the Republican Candidate releases:

His/Her (who am I kidding?) birth certificate
His long form birth certificate
Last 10 years of his Tax forms
His health records

----------------------------------------------
Then they would be just barely as open as the "imperial" President.  It would say alot about the candidate's character if he didn't release these records, we know how much that means to conservatives.

Now since he would surely loose votes for being hypocritical he will also release:

All of his school transcripts.
His net worth.



/The conservatives would not only be silent about wanting any of this information released they would fight the traitor liberals tooth and nail to prevent releasing even what Obama has already released.
 
2013-05-16 03:55:11 PM  
who cares? Is there a cut-off where we throw him out of the White House or something? Because that would sure impact every future election ever.

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.


Yeah but those guys were heroic job creators, while Obama got his money from ghostwriting books with Bin Laden, kickbacks from obamaphones, and the ever lucrative terrorist fist bump industry.

Harry Truman.

He was part of the social elite. That's how he became President.

I don't know - the United States Senate seems like it might be a good place to run into the social elite.

A VP and a 4 star general were not part of the elite? I am not talking about when they were young. I mean by the time they were in power. Andy Jackson was hobnobbing with society when he ran for President, and he had arguably the humblest roots of any President. You become the elite, THEN you get in the seat.
