    Seriously? That's so unrealistic to expect. By that notion, if a president wants to cut taxes they need to lead by example and underpay for a few years to prove that he is serious about paying less? The salary is around $400,000, I believe, to be POTUS, so it's not like he is earning outrageous dollars anyway. He could raise the rates on the upper bracket and marginally it would not affect him too much.

    Conservatives complaining about Obama not willing to pay more... would be like Liberals expecting Conservatives to rejoice that Obama paid less, so the wealth can trickle down.

    What do you Conservatives think about that? He is trying to help the poor by paying less, obviously...... duh

    Another big question I have, is how did his income drop 4 million bucks, in a year? I'm betting that someone is hiding some serious jack...through tax loopholes.
    He should set an example and pay 65% at a minimum, and should have done it for years already. These leftists are such windbags. There is NOTHING stopping them from paying idiotic rates they'd love to levy on everyone else.

    and if he paid more than what he was obligated, you would initiate a thread castigating him for such weak fiscal management skills

    notice how your side will turn any action into a negative when it comes to Obama

    is it because he is black or because he is a democrat?

    Obama is perfectly allowed to be an evil rich person that is greedily trying to keep his money and not pay his fair share on the backs of the poor and grandmothers and children and puppies and angels.



    No seriously, I don't care. He's got the right to use loopholes just as much as everyone else. It just means, based on liberal logic that they apply to republicans who do somethign immoral while preaching about how the government should enforce moral laws, that he's an absolute hypocrite to sit there pushing for raising the taxes on "the rich" and removing loopholes when he's actively trying to use loopholes to pay less money.

    I don't consider him a hypocrite for it, but then I don't use the same bat **** crazy logic many liberals use to call republicans hypocrites in the above type of social examples.

    What loophoes? I was under the impression that we were talking about marginal rates, in which case he is paying more than most rich people do.

    Re: Obama only paid a 26% income tax rate for 2010

    "loopholes" half the time seems to be implying "write offs" or "deductions"..

    Though I admit, I've not read very far into the thread. I just found the whole thing a bit stupid and funny, much like many of the "OMG Republican hypocrites" threads. Loopholes, deductions, whatever...I've got no problem with Obama trying to pay the least amount of taxes he could. And I don't think he's a hypocrite if he doesn't. But unless he gave up taking any deductions and paid as much of the tax money as he physically possibly could've without purposefully paying extra even after taking no deductions, then based on the way many liberals call some republicans (or some liberals on here call all republicans) Hypocrites for proposing or supporting some legislation and then doing something tangentally related badly then Obama would be a hypocrite to them for calling for higher taxes on the "rich" while doing anything at all to pay less taxes.

    After all, if you're a "hypocrite" for being agaisnt gay marriage but cheating on your wife then you're a "hypocrite" for being for increased on taxes for "rich" people but doing anything to pay less taxes as a "rich" person.
