Skip to comments.Obama: We’re “Not That Far Removed From What Most Americans Are Going Through”

The president told ABC that his family is not that far removed from what most Americans are going through right now. Really?
President Obama says he can relate to the plight of Americans striving in the struggling economy to pay bills while saving for their kids education.
He says he and first lady Michelle Obama took a hit like everybody else when the economy nearly collapsed, telling ABC that a college fund for daughters Malia and Sasha has gone up and down with the stock market.
Obama says the first couple is not that far removed from what most Americans are going through. He tells the network it was just a few years ago that we had high credit card balances, we had two kids, thinking about college. We had our own retirement accounts, wondering if we were going to be able to get enough assets in there.

This is one of the most outrageous and ridiculous statements I have ever heard.
These people live like Kings off the US taxpayers. Lavish parties, lavish food, continual vacations, expensive clothes, elite schools for the kids, golfing, best doctors and medical care paid for by taxpayers.
All of the best all the time for the Obozos.
Gawd that pretty far removed from our existence. No way can this selfish idiot know the pain many are living with.
Oh, goodie. We all get to vacation in Spain this summer on the taxpayer’s dime.
Yea... He’s just like the rest of us... He’ll, I’ve had to cut back to only 2 747 flights per week for me and my sweetie. I’ve also had to cut down to 5 vacations per year... And no more than 3 concerts at my home per week. *whew*. Living tight is so difficult... But we’re all the same
Now, if only I can convince 35m people to send me 50-66% of their income... Maybe I could “almost” live like the average American
Right out of Clinton’s “I feel Your Pain” handbook.
This woman is a selfish opportunist. Bet she is dragging the whole family along at our expense.
Did she book a separate plane and room for the dog?
How’s that vegetable garden going, Mrs Obama, er, I mean yur Royal Heiness?
He actually gets Congress to do what he wants. He has no clue what life is like for us.....
“Not That Far Removed From What Most Americans Are Going Through”
Right. About as far removed as the distance between Earth and the EDGE OF THE KNOWN UNIVERSE.
When every ex-resident can count on millions for his memoirs, six figure speeches, and the like? (Especially if he’s a lefty).
Besides, what qualified black college applicants (let alone with a power pedigree) don’t get a full ride to any place they want to attend?
What a liar and hypocrite, and yet people will believe him.
My first thought was, “Let them eat cake.”
This guy and his buddy Joe Biden are incredibly tone deaf.
I can't improve upon this!
Michelle Obama, daughter Sasha to vacation separately in Spain — over president’s birthday...
‘All activities are closed press’...
30 rooms at 5-star hotel...
5-day trip to follow weekend on FL’s Gulf Coast, precede 10-day vacation on Martha’s Vineyard...
How to get someone to steal her passport?
This from a guy who made 4.5 million last year.
JDW made a brilliant point—but you, invisible hand, made me laugh a lot harder. A LOT harder. ;)
