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 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.

UNHbeta19: coeyagi:

Ok, so you've said that hiding BILLIONS is bad.  You've learned today, dear patriot, that Obama has no more than 5.8 million in net wealth.  Why don't you make it easier on us and just draw some arbitraty "outrage point" by which you can villify Obama for having a certain amount of wealth?

All billions started as millions.  And honestly $1 of ill-gotten wealth as a result of a public position (any public position) is too much.  And honestly I do not care what Obama is worth.  His wife was a successful lawyer and he is a best selling author.  Of course he will have money.  that is not the issue.  It is people like you that jump to his defense when he isn't even attacked or questioned.  We get it you like him.  Not every time somebody questions him is it a personal attack on you.


I don't even know where to start with this word salad.  Seriously, I don't know, it has no point or cohesiveness.

Well, let's start with the assertion that he wasn't attacked.  Strawman. He was.  Subby, at the very least, did.  Read the f*cking headline.  Or drool, I don't care which.  I bet the latter because it's obvious he was attacked.

Ill-gotten wealth?  How the f*ck would this form alleviate the desire to know if it was ill-gotten? You're just flinging diarrhea around the thread, bro.

UNHbeta19: 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...

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.

bdub77: I have a certain amount of money saved for retirement. I don't have to share that amount with anyone. My salary is not public. You can find out the approximate worth of my home from public records, but not how much I have put into it.

Obama's salary is public, as are properties. But his savings? He also doesn't have to share that amount with anyone. Nor do I have any expectations he needs to do so.

Suffice it to say that after Obama leaves office he will basically be set for sentenced to life with the lecture and book circuit.

Dr Dreidel: 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
Transactions: 69 totaling $521,059 to $2,040,000



Boehner could take a few classes in vote-selling from Senator Turtleman:

Net worth: From $9,946,049 to $44,667,000 (ranked 10th in Senate)
Assets: 41 totaling $9,946,049 to $44,667,000
Transactions: 23 totaling $227,024 to $830,000

This from a man who's all but outright said his taking bribes counts as free speech. There's a reason we have the term, "as stupid as a Kentucky voter."
