Indeed, HYPOCRISY appears to be the major flaw in the Obama persona, overshadowed only by his immense ego and absorption with—all things Barack Obama.
He has a hefty stake in JPMorgan Chase, the megabank that just made a bad $2 billion bet. Obama has an account worth between $500,000 and $1 million.
Despite the nation’s $15.6 trillion debt, he is a believer in government paper. More than half of his assets are in Treasury bills and notes.
The disclosure statement lists assets and liabilities in dollar ranges, so pinpointing the president’s net worth is difficult. His assets appear to tally between $2.6 million and $9.9 million. He holds a mortgage on his Chicago home of $500,000 to $1 million.
As was clear from Obama’s income tax filing, much of his income continues to roll in from book royalties. The disclosure form lists $100,000 to $1 million in royalties from Dreams From My Father, $100,000 to $1 million from Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters, and $50,000 to $100,000 from The Audacity of Hope.”
Consider too, that Judicial Watch recently revealed that Michelle Obama’s luxurious vacation to Spain cost American taxpayers one half million dollars a couple of years ago.
Good heavens, Occupy Bullies, why is it OK for a family worth ten million dollars to vacation on the public dime?
Whatever happened to the notion of basic fairness? And pay your “Fair Share”?
