Obamas worth millions, not yet at point where they’ve made enough money

Somewhere between scandals this week, the president found time to sign financial disclosure forms indicating that he and the first lady held assets totaling somewhere between $1.8 and $6.8 million last year. Five million dollars seems like a pretty big range to those of us in the oppressed 47 percent, but if you’re one of the rich, what’s a few million here or there? It’s not like he’s going to be #FlaggedForAudit.

ABC News reports that President Obama collected between $250,000 and $2.1 million in book royalties. We’re tempted to make a “you didn’t build write that” joke, but we’ll let it slide.

    It’s so nice to have a president who’s one of the little guys, like us, and not one of those evil rich Republicans!

    Very representative of his base. Rich with money he didn’t really earn provided to him as a result of his support of the democrat party. He’s just better at scamming then the welfare as*sholes who put him into office… not any more qualified.

      Money he didn’t earn for a job he hasn’t done. 100% liberal progressive.

    • Cory

      Yes Bill Gates and Warren Buffett didn’t earn their money lol.

  • Garth Haycock

    No, no, no, twitchy…

    When Obama said that he thinks that at some point you’ve made enough money, he means everyone else. If he meant to include himself and Wookie, he would have said “at some point we have made enough money.”

    Just think of his follow up, “Tears of a Clown”. He’ll be able to have a place in Kenya.

    • BlahBlah

      I think he plans to save up to retire as a dictator of Kenya.

      • Silenttype78

        Would he live in a white hut?

        • BlahBlah

          Yes and the Wookie will be barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen.

          • Silenttype78

            Heh…the Wookie. I cringe whenever I hear her called ” beautiful ” or “sophisticated “.
            She looks like a big hairy man in drag. Beautiful my ass.

    What a coincidence. Prez made between $1.8M and $6.8M. I made between $18K and $68K.

    • Guest

      Yeah, but being Conservative, you probably have $250.00 hidden offshore in the Caymans, just like just like the rest of us.

  • BlahBlah

    Between 90% and 90% Americans are for gun control.

    • Miss Clairee

      No, no, no! A bazillion trillion four hundred gazillion are for gun control! Get your numbers straight before you go posting!

    They told me if I voted for Romney an out-of-touch, rich guy would be President…

    • ObamaFail

      And look what happened when Romney lost. We got an out-of-touch rich guy as President for another 4 years.

  • GrindingMills

    How has he not refinanced his house? If he doesn’t realize how low interest rates are, he shouldn’t be president.

    • nc

      Or paid it off?

    • Just Another Guy

      Maybe he thinks that “mortgage interest deduction” is somehow valuable.

      But then, he never has been very strong on economics, taxes or accounting.

      In fact, he’s a pretty no-account kind of guy.

    • irishgirl91

      If he re-fied we might get a look at the original terms and that might throw a few more crumbs on the trail of his life. Best leave it and let a “donor” take care of life after 1600 Penn

  • ObamaFail

    If he’s worth that much, why doesn’t he send his family on those lavish vacations they so enjoy on his own damn dime instead of making us pay for it?

    • Cochetope

      Because why pay for something when someone else will?

  • nc

    Is it me, or do these numbers look funny? Using the figures above, he made between 100k and 1m in book royalties alone JUST LAST YEAR (never mind the past several years), plus his 400k salary, and remember all his perks, he doesn’t pay for that much out of pocket, right? PLUS 1 – 5m in investments.

    Yes, I know Miche is extravagant, but total ASSETS (not income) between 1.8 – 6.8m? Really?

  • peteee363

    not bad for a guy who has never had a real job his whole life!

    • stuckinIL4now

      Yeah, really. Why does Obamuh get the royalties for Dreams when it was Bill Ayers who wrote it?

  • The Durd

    He should refi that mortgage.

    • Joe W.

      His credit sucks.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Well, geeeezzzzz, how much is enough? Isn’t Obamuh the one who wants to cap retirement accounts at $3million?

  • Guest

    Mr President, a friend lent me both of your books because I refused to buy them. You didn’t write that.

  • KansasGirl

    No surprise here, the man has skated through his entire life.

  • arttie

    I do not think we will see him wearing sackcloth and eating locusts any time soon.

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Where did he find the time to pen 3 books when he was busy running the Federal Government. Oh………

  • TocksNedlog

    That’s the most vague and non-specific ‘disclosure’ I’ve ever seen. What did he do, tell the IRS he made 100k but paid taxes on a million?
