Okay Hillary, where's your 2007 tax return?
looks like he is well on his way to making "clinton" money.
Hillary 2007 returns was $20+ million right?
Lets talk about elitism...
or robbing from the poor...
We should all write books about ourselves and our unique histories and become millionaires.
Okay Hillary- he is truly vetted-What baout you? How much and from whom did Bill earn all that money, besides the money he took for promoting columbia Free Trade?
This is what transparency is all about. Now I hope the Clintons will reveal the list of all donors to the Bill Clinton Library.
Where's Billary's ???????
Go Obama !
So simple, so clean.
Making money the CLEAN way
Not by businesses in Dubai
It embodies the American as far as I am concerned.
3 years ago he had little money and student loan debt, today he is a millionaire due to the proceeds of a book he wrote.
Good for him.
Looks like book writing is pretty lucrative. Is this a so much for the "I'm just like you" argument?
Good for him. Good for Hillary. Money's awesome... either one of you... go out and figure out how to make our country prosperous.
I'm an Obama fan. But still have to say I would have expected more then $240, 000 in charitable contributions. Like 10% of his total income is more like it. Bible say's so. :-) So should be like $400,000 for the year. :-)
Just had to say it. Don't change my vote. Oh wait I can't vote I'm Canadian. :-( lol
Why hasn't Annie Oakley and McSame released their 2007 tax returns?
Obama/Edwards08 Si Se Puede
SOME WAYS FROM 109 MILLION. HONESTLY, I THOUGHT HE MADE MORE THAN THAT.
Now, I doubt that people will comment on the fact that Obama is far from poor or needy now. Probably not.
I'm sure some of those contributions went to the Church of Rev. Wright, so that he can continue to speak his HATRED!!!
Nothing much to see, which compares to the Clintons. 109M.
No charitable contributions to anything but causes for his race. Is that the type of President he'll be?
This is good news! Open and honest Obama for President!
Now that's transparency, GOOD FOR YOU Obama
Haha. So much for being the anti-establishment candidate. Looks like he's a multimillionaire politician after all :) By the way, the Clinton's gave away much more money to charity than the Obamas!
Where are the Library Donors? (Especially since we see that Bill Clinton is running for President Again)?
How much have his Saudi Friends donated to the Library? I have heard numbers in the range of $150-175 Million Dollars. I would sure would like to know.
ROTFL......now doesn't Hillary (and you supporters) feel PETTY??
Is the $109,000,000 princess really accusing Obama of being an elitist? Get real.
