Well we can see from his tax returns that Obama is a man of the people, just a regular schmoe...yeah, right.
"The Obamas earned a combined $430,700 in salary, and more than $506,000 in income from Barack Obama’s book sales in 2006. The Illinois senator’s second book, “The Audacity of Hope,” flew to the top of The New York Times bestseller list after its release in October 2006.
In 2005, Obama made $1.2 million from the 2004 re-release of his first book, “Dreams From My Father,” which was first published in 1995 but found new interest following Obama’s widely-praised appearance at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. In all, the Obamas declared $1.67 million in adjusted gross income in 2005, itemized $112,000 in deductions, including $77,000 in charitable deductions, $5,000 of which went to the Obamas’ church, Trinity United, whose reverend has made news lately for his anti-American sermons."
But you know, God DAMN America.
Oh and how's this for change: "Obama and George Bush are 11th cousins, and Obama and Cheney are ninth cousins once removed." Bwah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haaaaaa.
