Obama's Now a Millionaire
Most of this is from a CBS News piece by Mark Knoller.
According to his latest Financial Disclosure Report, President Obama now has assets worth between one million and five million dollars. Comparatively speaking, his liabilities are a pittance. Since first running for office, his net worth has increased by 438%. [No wonder he thinks the economy is doing okay:] This is all before what is likely to be a lucrative book deal after his Presidency.
I'm certainly not against anyone becoming a millionaire...unless that happens while they are in high political office. Hello.
This is why politicians run for high office in the USA...unless they're already rich, in which case it's anybody's guess as to why they run. Perhaps their motives are noble, or perhaps they have a shadow agenda.
Not only my opinion. Be Well
