Never in my life have I seen a man so impressed with himself, yet having accomplished so little in his life before being selected to “run” the most powerful nation on Earth.
We know very little about Barack Obama’s past as many of the records from his youth and college days are sealed. There has even been controversy about his birth certificate and who his “real” family is. Most Americans believe the “official story” about Barack and Michelle’s past and no one has been able to prove that the narrative we were told is false. Still, many people wonder.
When Barry was young he allegedly worked a bunch of entry level jobs such as ice cream boy, telemarketer gift shop sales clerk, and even a construction worker (I’ll believe that when I see it), this is all according to Answers.com
Even Snopes (the official thought police of the internet) wrote that “CNN/Money did peg Barack Obama’s net worth at $1.3 million in 2007″
So, before taking office as POTUS, Obama, according to CNN/Money had just over $1,300,000. I would like to know where the community organizer got this 1.3 mil from but that is another story for another day.
Here we are 12 years later, 8 of which Barack was serving as President and only making around $400,000 a year, and according to AOL.com, The Obama’s are worth about $40 million. AOL also claimed “Aside from the six-figure pension he receives as former president, Obama has made millions from speaking engagements and his bestselling books.”
AOL went on to say that:
“From speaking at events around the world to writing a memoir, and, most recently, signing a massive production deal with Netflix, Obama’s life after the White House has been full and very lucrative.
These endeavours — along with the six-figure pension all former presidents receive — have significantly contributed to Obama’s current estimated net worth of $40 million.
From the time he joined the US Senate in 2005 to the end of his presidency, Obama made $20 million alone from his presidential salary, book royalties, and investments, reports Forbes …”
All these figures are estimates and speculation. They also only account for assets the public knows about. After scandals like Solyndra, where hundreds of millions of dollars were squandered, I can not help but wonder how much of those lost Billions over Obama’s 8 years ended up in his pocket somehow.
Perhaps we will never know. What do you think about Barry’s wealth, was it all earned above board?
