    I like how he makes every effort to point out President Obama's middle name, as if that were somehow important. Reagan's middle name was Wilson. Like the ball from that Tom Hanks movie!

    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.
    Only 26%....bastard.

    A Leader......leads......

    He says the Rich should pay more.......

    He says we should spread the wealth.....

    .....why doesnt the President of Hypocrisy put his money where his mouth is?
    Because the law doesn't require it. If Obama passed a law where he had to pay more in taxes, he would probably follow it.

    if we want the exploitation ended, then we must convince the congress to close those loopholes. as Obama has requested
    You're absolutely right. However, I question the hell out of a president that decries rich people, all the while he's rich and playing the same games.

    I got a feeling if he had paid more, you'd be saying something about how he must think we are all dumb, how else would he think we'd all follow the 'messiah' and do something as idiotic and give more money than we had to to the government.

    That or some other BS.

    Political gestures are only worth it if somebody cares. Neither conservative, liberal, or moderate opinions of Obama will transform because he acted against his advantage on taxes.

    Why does it matter what the law states? If he wants to pay more like he says he can do so and not change a thing. If he is only running on what is required than I can only assume he isn't serious about his claims of wanting to pay more himself.

    Sorry, anyone who gets on national TV and says he is not paying enough in taxes has an obligation to voluntarily pay more. He's worse than Al Gore flying around in private jets.

    Yes, it would be worthless if it was a political gesture. If however he is serious about wanting to pay more he would of been paying more for years and have no political gesturing going on.

    I'd say, Damn! I'm shocked. Good for him. Now can we get Gore out of his mansions and private jets?
