Ok, for all of you that bashed the Clinton's for the money they've earned; let's hear the Obama bashing. Oh wait, you can't because that would be racist!
So, how is Obama an Elitist?
He made no where near what the Clinton's made. and none of it came from shady deals like the Clinton's.
Still waiting on the Clintons
Oh, and $4.2 Million is chump change that the average American earns? Another example of Obama's lies and hypocrisy.
This is peanut compared to Billary's wealth.
Obama donated $200,000 to charity before an election year???? (less than 5% of income).... HOW PATHETIC!!!!
An elitist knows making money, but small town's people get bitter clinging on guns.
For someone who claims deep spirituality, he sure doesn't donate much to charity. In the Bible I read it says to tithe 10% but he only gave a total of 5%
He's keeping it real.
Go Obama 08'
where did his charitable contributions go to his CHURCH
Obama made 4.2 million in 2007 and only donated 0.5% of his income to charity. And he calls himself the candidate that cares about the people?
Go Obama,you are the hope of America
Allages for OBAMA, I love u
Interesting. He didn't file jointly with Michelle? Even if Obama were the best qualified candidate, I would never trust that racist, controlling wife of his near the White House. Let us see her income.....
So, Obama not as poor as we thought....
WOW!! Thats nothing compare to Hillary's 109 million.
A Honest Man will have no other!!!
HILLARY your turn and GRANDPA we are still waiting on yours for the last 6yrs
CNN, What is in my message [ posted at 7;00 ] that it needs to await moderation ?
Not even close to wht the Clintons raked in. Looks more like honest living to me. Not taking millons for NAFTA. Where do you get 109 million.
I am gona write me a book tomorrow. No today!
Great! now the billary team can go home and sleep until it's time to answer that phone at 3 am. and try to come up with their 109 mil explanation
GO HILLARY !!!
My, my – so much for the POOR ME Candidate
I guess now Ms. Michelle can afford 5 spoons!
They are both such FAKES! AND ARROGANT!
Okay look at his salary then look at his charity contributions!
I love Obama!!!!
Yes, he is so poor and grounded (not). Then he releases the info right before the debate. What was he trying to hide?
It's time to finish it. Hillary should go or be kicked out.
See? Ask & ye shall receive. Now if only Hillary could follow that rule.
Where are them taxes, girl?
