The book revenue is just a cover for bribes. At Sam’s or Walmart you see his books sitting in piles for $3.00 sales. The bribes are funneled through the left leaning publishers as a cover. Sorta like the million dollar Nobel prize money ... came just in time to bail him out as Moo had racked up hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt.

So a president who cannot figure out how do do a budjet, can save a few million dollars from a 200k a year salary in three years.

Interesting...

It is not beyond the realm of possibility, considering that the State Dept. bought cases of them for each embassy around the world. I’m sure he sold quite a few books...to taxpayers who don’t want them and won’t see them.

Spot on. Add a very large portion of servile supplicants in the media and you have a concoction whereby a complete mediocrity can become president.

I’m kinda surprised this hasn’t been correctly analyzed...the MSM released it, so it has to favor Obama.

Reason?

Simple. The libs want their guy to be wealthier than the rest, but not too much so. Morgan Stanley? Obama’s a victim.

Obama and MSM want his “paltry” $8M to stand next to the uber-rich Romney’s $250M.

It’s up to Romney at this point to rally America to want to be successful as Obama has destroyed the “America’s greatness” theme:

NASA
the MOON
most companies
home prices
lost jobs
only governmental and union jobs are “Real jobs”
Need I list more?

Romney: I made my money through hard work, determination, and faith in a capitalist system.

Obama: Sucka, I made my money by jive talkin the American people, screwing over hard working Americans, and pretending to be Afican-American (aka affirmative action).

...and my dad.

Okay, a million times better than Zero but let's not get carried away. I'd have been more impressed if he'd tossed "luck" into that list - as any successful person should.

Luck??? Ha! Hey, I understand your response no problem, but here is mine, no offense.

I make alot of money when I work very hard.

I make some money when I just work.

I make little money when I slack.

I have never made no-money because I always work.

It's not rocket science, I could be making a frew bucks right now if I wanted to but I would rather be drinking a cold beer and Freeping. Tomorrow I will work hard again, and it is not luck.

Oh and one more thing, I not sure what you have heard but what I have heard is that Romney gave his daddy money to charity, yes he had a leg up, but that is life, he worked hard and made his own money. So your ...and my dad, needs a little tweeking and research. Just sayin... FRiend.

I hear what you’re saying and I think we’d agree that he’s a decent, hard-working guy. It’s just that if his daddy wasn’t who he was, he would have had to have been a decent, hard-working, *incredibly lucky* guy to get where he is.

I don’t begrudge him being in the lucky sperm club and I think/hope that off-mike he’d admit to being a charter member.

C.f. Obama who seems to think that he got his breaks though merit alone.
