Obama lists 2011 assets

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) – The White House released documents Tuesday that show President Barack Obama and the first family hold assets valued at between $2.6 million and $8.3 million.

The disclosure forms, required by the Ethics in Government Act, show the president's largest asset, by far, is U.S. debt in the form of Treasury notes and bills. In total, the president has between $1.6 million and $6.3 million invested in Treasury debt.

    Way to go Obama. I would like to see Mittens tax returns from 6 years ago. What does he have to hide. How about the amounts in his Swiss and Cayman island bank accounts.

    @Lionel

    Agrred. You took the words right of my mouth. I wonder if this will force Mittens to be a little more forthcoming about his finances? I doubt it, but certainly this puts Mittens in unfavorable light. Perception is everything.

    Maybe I missed the memo, but when did it become a requirement for presidential candidates to release their tax returns to the public?

    The Obamas are in the class of the 1%ers in any shape or form. Made 5.5 millions in 2009 and 1.78 millions in 2010. Sorry, don't play the out-of-touch card anymore against Romney please. Obama & Romney are both rich. It is just a number game, but they live the life of the rich. Perhaps just look at their donation to see who donate more in reflection of their 'in touch' with others less fortunate. Romney in the millions, Obama $172K. No contest

    Romney better in every poll. Finally America woke up from "change". Obama is small communist agitator.

    I'm confident that Obama is hiding money elsewhere.

    Look like some people try to elect president on checking amount.–The less the better president. It's sound like the looser better than achieve. Obama will collect mil. after jan,20.2013 for speeches. Many,many mil.

    Want another comparison of the out-of-touch scenarios? Here goes:
    At a time millions & millions of Americans are struggling financially, at a time the nation is facing record high unemployment and deficits, you would think the president, his family, and his officials should set an example of austerity or cost savings. No, Obama & family plus his corrupt officials are enjoying parties after parties, personal trips after personal trips at tax payer expense. In contrast, the Romneys have not costed tax payers anything, and Romney has been known to donate to charities his inheritance, his salary as Olympics chief, his salary as governor of Massachusetts, and on top of all these, he donates millions and millions every year out of his annual income. You be the judge who the real out- of-touch guy is.

    So he's a 1%er eh. And he didn't release these to be transparent, or to show what a trustworthy guy he is (LOL) he released them because he's required to. Silly kool aid drinkers.

  21. Flipper Rmoney Failure Ahead

    Still waiting for Rmoney's list, along with his tax returns and records of Bain's "job creation." Sure would be nice to know about all the MA records he destroyed, too. When is the so-called "liberal" media going to start vetting Flipper the Neocon Robot?
