Well Chiefie, I had to feed my youngest teenager first so I'm sorry you had to wait for a Google search you could have done for yourself.
But here you go, here is just one citing.

Why can't Republicans do their own searches?

They accumulate wealth, they don't work for it.

Dr.F, nice play. Change the subject.

Care to answer for Bob and Norton as to how the Prez has managed to amass a multi million dollar net worth on his salary?

He went from $450,000 net worth in 2006 to $12,000,000 net worth today. How does that happen?

Where did that money come from? Personal net worth money?

Perhaps between his and his wife's fairly comfortable incomes they managed to wisely invest and manage their wealth.
Didja ever think about that dipsh#t.
Or because He is a black Kenyan Muslim Communist socialist muslim he must have done it illegally. Unlike Mitt and the gang.

And can you by any chance show any evidence he is misusing his wealth? By the way $12 million isn't squat it doesn't even put him in the club of wealthy Senators let alone the first class seats of the big dogs.

So Obama can make investment money, but the Koch bros can't?

Oh Philo Philo Philo....


An analysis by The Huffington Post found that labor unions spent more than $1.7 billion on politics and lobbying in the 2012 election cycle. The Koch network spent at least $490 million in the period.



"Unions spend their members’ money, at times against their interests and individual preferences," Tappan said.

Political spending by labor unions was the subject of a panel at last week's Conservative Political Action Conference, the annual Washington gathering of right-wing elites. While celebrating the spread of right-to-work laws that undermine organized labor, anti-tax and anti-union crusader Grover Norquist claimed unions are "the largest political player in American politics and will be for some time."

12 million..chicken feed compared to this guy.

George Washington (1789-1797)

Estimated net worth: $525 million

His Virginia plantation, "Mount Vernon," consisted of five separate farms on 8,000 acres of prime farmland, run by over 300 slaves. His wife, Martha Washington, inherited significant property from her father. Washington made significantly more than subsequent presidents: his salary was two percent of the total U.S. budget in 1789.


Jefferson...another founding father was worth a cool 212 million.

Ref that...



Appears that your DEMS are holding back bigtime for 2014 and waiting for 2016. Which many strategist say could indeed be disastrous.

That is why the Kochs look like they outspending the dems.

I don't even know what you're trying to say. I mean, George Washington? Really? What are you trying to say?

The point is that Obama makes money the exact way the Koch bros make money, investing.

As for political contributions by the Koch bros, you may wanna look at George Soros investments over the years, and which groups he supports. It's quite extensive.

More than the Koch bros by far!

EDIT: Hey Philo, think of all the money we could spend on "the poor" if we diverted funds from Global Warming!!!!

Don't you care about the "poor people"? Are you anti-poor?

No Blue I don't give a sh#t about the poor that's why I am advocating for teachers.
That way the poor can learn that if they just became uber powerfull corporations they could influence politics, ruin people's pensions and bank their profits in the Caymans safe from evil taxes.


So what you guys who bring up Soros like your screaming "Willie Horton" are really saying is that you approve of what the Koch's and the Hunt's and the Bush's stand for.
So sorry you insist on being on the wrong side of history.
I suppose Grandaddy Prescott Bush' s profiting off of banking and advocating for the Nazi's was real neato to you Neo-Con TeaBaggers?

Uh no. Obama made his money (of which there is very little by Koch brothers measures) at first by being a derided "community organizer" and then by selling a book. He now makes the highest salary of his entire life by being President ($500,000/year). Trying to pretend that Obama and the Koch brothers are cut from the same cloth is roughly as insane as your assertion that Obama is a secret Kenyan citizen planted in the US to turn is into a Marxist utopia.

In other absurd news, roughly 6.4 million people have enrolled in private insurance through federal and state healthcare exchanges passing the post-botched website rollout goal of 6 million and nearly reaching the pre-botched website goal of 7 million. Here is a list of people the bluering quoted a couple of months ago:

I only brought up Soros because you anti-capitalist Commies bring up the Koch bros. Koch bros does the EXACT same sh#t as Soros, they just give a bit less money to the OTHER party.

How about we spend less on Global Warming and spend more on the "poor children" if you really care so much?

Teachers are fine. Quit wasting tax-dollars on other bullshit and give it to teachers if that's what you really want. State tax-dollars, not Fed dollars. In calif, we waste it all! On bullshit!

So blame the Dems running the STate, don't ask me for more tax money!

He made 12 million that way? No! He invested it like a good little capitalist. What's good for him though is not good for everybody else.

Do as he says, not as he does. But drink up, Johnson, he has more Kool-Aid.
