Debunked: Michelle Obama Tries to Spread the Obamas’ Student Loan Debt Lie and FAILS(MISERABLY)
Twitchy Media ^ | April 26, 2012 | Twitchy Staff

Posted on 04/27/2012 10:07:59 AM PDT by lbryce

MICHELLE OBAMA:FAIL

We know the ‘challenge’ of student loan debt.” On an income of $272,000 per year!

Man and woman of the people! Only not so much, as (Link to the Story:Behind Obama’s Definition of Wealth and Paying Off Student Loans)ABC’s Jonathan Karl reported earlier.

Here’s a rundown of the president’s income, according to his tax returns, in the years before he paid off his student loans:

2004: $207,647

2003: $238,327

2002: $259,394

2001: $272,759

2000: $240,505

In 2001 and 2002, the Obamas would have met the $250,000 standard the president has set for those wealthy enough to afford to pay more taxes.

It’s also notable that the Obamas didn’t claim deductions for student loans on any of those years, most likely because they made too much money to qualify for the student loan deduction.

How “challenging” having to pay back money that you willingly borrowed, all on a measly $272,759 per year!

Twitter users help with the debunking.

I am glad and surprised that ABC is covering this, online at least.
I doubt you will hear about this on GMA and I doubt diane Sawyer will mention this.

one thing
what proof do we have they actually had student loans?

Ping....

...on using Twitter messaging to debunk a quarter of a million dollars income not being sufficient to pay off their college loan, which they could not deduct because they made too much money.

Tweets rock, beyond the choir.

“Wouldn’t they have gotten some sort of affirmative action handout for tuition?”

I’d think they did (but recipients often hide this from shame); they certainly did for the election.

I’m enjoying many of these articles because of the comments down below. Even in the MSM sites it looks like well over 50% don’t believe the MSM or the won. I can’t imagine every site is getting freeped, so it looks to me like a lot of people are waking up.

Michelle probably had a loan, she didn’t start living off the Government teat until she met Obama.

I think the Saudis and aid to foreign students paid his. I doubt we will ever learn the truth.

I so agree with you. The worm has turned apparently.

It’s rather like even the Marxist loving media is not only letting the opposition post now, but are bumping their posted ire and protests to the top now.

It’s stunning, really.

Obama is very likely D-O-N-E forever. Even Soros is said to prefer ROMNEY.

That would be because there is absolutely no difference but for emphasis of issues.

I won’t be participating in the GOPE Pelosi-style Romney cram down.

REBELLION IS HARD, AND SCARY, BUT IT’S BEEN KNOWN TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE WHEN YOU MEAN IT TO THE LAST MAN.

Hmmm, I thought the Puppeteer said "He was OK with a Romney candidate". Didn't read that he preferred.

Yes, I heard that on serius radio during an 8 hour drive day before yesterday. Have not heard it since. Perhaps you are right. Either way, it seems to say a lot. Obama is likely DONE, in globalist circles at any rate.

I suspect whoever despises Israel more will get the nod from Soros, but there is no real known difference between Obama and Romney.

Except in office Romney as governor did more damage to liberty than Obama by quite a stretch when he was a Chicago pol. (At least he just voted “Present”.)

I am watching the deeds of Romney and discarding his words. He is riding almost entirely on the electorates FEAR of Obama and has to SAY very little to win.

What he will DO is an unknown, but for his quite socialist record and abuse of religious liberty in MA.

Remember, Mrs. Maobama lies for the “common good”. Therefore, she’s granted an indulgence in the church of leftism.

When will the MSM ask the Obama’s to release the paperwork on their own student loans?

Or, their college financial aid, for that matter?

Obama is aggressively campaigning for the youth vote.

But the MSM can't be bothered to check his personal details?

And where is the GOP establishment on this issue?

Have they even brought up the subject of the Obama’s personal paperwork?

If not for Conservative Blogs, I wouldn't know anything about this guy.

I like to see that these people were actually struggling to make ends meet even when they had a household adjusted gross income of over $200,000.

That should debunk any myth that people who make $200,000 a year are “wealthy”.

My barn is currently sans critters, but I got my eye on some goats. There’s this hillside with trees that really needs their tender lovin’ care.

Other than that, this really feels like a Friday Hijack!

We should rally the gang and go after “Mooch”elle ma Belle!

mooch Someone who wants something for free .. someone who takes and takes but doesn’t give back.
Michelle is the biggest MOOCH ive ever seen
She mooched at 500,000 vacation in Spain from the American taxpayer

2. mooch A scab or freeloader who comes to your house uninvited and overstays her welcome (For more than about 3 days) and proceeds to eat all your food, stink up your bathroom, take all your munchies and just generally leech all the blood from your body during their stay.

“Don’t let Michelle in again, she is the biggest moocher.”
“Your’e not stayin’ in D.C. if your’e going to mooch again!”

There was this first lady once, and she turned out to be a dead beat and a mooch. She says to me, “I had a lot of money once.”

So did I. I was eight and it came in a monopoly box.

Moochelle, she got a free ride to Princeton, and majored in sociology and minored in African-American studies. Then straight into Harvard, probably another free ride. All this in a country she was not proud of and hubby got elected.

Romney may be Obama Lite, but that is first term Obama lite; what will 2nd term Obama be like??? Lord have mercy on us then.

I firmly believe that Osama Obama is beatable but an attitude like this can cost us dearly.It smacks of complacency...of wild overconfidence.We must fight this thing like it will be as close..and as ugly...as 2000.

We must remember every single second that Osama Obama has a billion dollar sh*tstorm waiting for the nominee and that AFSCME,SEIU,UAW,etc have another billion to add to that.

George Orwell wrote about how Centrally planned big gubmint using technology to suppress individual liberty in 1948.

There is no way he could have foreseen technology and video cameras in the Rodney King beating and Facebook and Twitter today being used against the gubmint.

Who woulda thunk it? Human brilliance is amazing. It beats Statists every time.

Hey BD. Long time no see. I think we need to have our annual Neener reunion picnic someday. Maybe next year or the year after. I might even grant absolution if some Neener were to put together a list of all the old Neeners. But then maybe not. After all, we are listless and so shall we ever remain. Maybe someone on the GRPL list has a list of the Neeners. Or maybe we could have a GRPL reunion picnic and the Neeners could crash it.

And I’m shore your pleased too no

I don’t think BO had student loans. Maybe Michelle, but not BO. He went to the most exclusive private high school in Hawaii and then supposedly on to Occidental, Harvard and Columbia. Someone paid for this for him, otherwise, he would have stayed in-state for in-state tuition at state universities where all the ones that couldn’t afford these types of colleges went. Where’s the proof that he had student loans?

Please also list the Obama's charitable giving deductions for those years! IIRC, before he began to run for Prez in 2006, the Obama's were "One-Percenters," i.e., giving about one percent on an income of $250K.

Which is their prerogative, but they really SHOULD NOT be going around whining about other people's supposed "selfishness."
