Michele Bachmann's Latest Obama Attack Is A Head-Scratcher

Last edited Tue Aug 28, 2012, 07:22 PM - Edit history (1)



Michele Bachmann: Obama's Wealth 'Really The Issue' In 2012 Election (VIDEO)

Michele Bachmann said President Barack Obama can't relate to "the common man" because of his extreme wealth, failing to note that GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney is worth hundreds of millions more.

"President Obama is extremely wealthy," Bachmann said when USA Today asked how someone with "vast wealth" could connect to the American public. "He and his wife have been wealthy for a number of years, and so I think that's really the issue. President Obama is wealthy -- what does he understand about the common man right now?"

According to financial disclosure reports released by the White House in May, the Obamas hold assets worth between nearly $2.6 million and nearly $8.3 million. Romney's net worth is up to $255 million, according to financial disclosure reports.

1. Well, it could've been worse.

That's pretty mild coming from Bachmann.

2. haven't seen any recent polls

but I think she is in deep trouble here in Minnesota. Was at the State Fair and wandered over to the GOP booth, it was plastered with all various Minnesota GOP candidates, but not a single Bachmann sign. It's like they are trying to deny she is a republican.

5. What an idiot (but we knew that).

Obama is well-off; he's never denied that; he made quite a bit of money from the three books he wrote. That is to say, he made his money by working for it, not by inheriting it or by vampirizing companies and taking peoples' jobs away. But extremely wealthy? Hardly. While he's technically part of the 1%, which he freely admits (and has always said he should be paying more taxes, not less), his assets aren't anywhere near Mittens' level of wealth. Not even close. Also, he doesn't do fancy shit to avoid paying taxes and he doesn't hide his tax returns.

7. President Obama will need every extra penny he can get, because ...


Ex-presidents NO longer receive 'lifetime' secret service protection - so Obama is going to be dishing out lots of money in the future for security.

15. As he probably will be travelling the world to give (sell) speeches (like Bill)...

I am confident he will make enough revenue to cover for proper security detail.

The man is admired worldwide.

Now if he would also 'solve' (or Could) the scary climate change thingy, History would be all his!

18. The law changed in 1997. See below


-snip-

How long do former presidents receive Secret Service protection after they leave office?


In 1965, Congress authorized the Secret Service (Public Law 89-186) to protect a former president and his/her spouse during their lifetime, unless they decline protection. In 1997, Congress enacted legislation (Public Law 103-329) that limits Secret Service protection for former presidents to 10 years after leaving office. Under this new law, individuals who are in office before January 1, 1997, will continue to receive Secret Service protection for their lifetime. Individuals elected to office after that time will receive protection for 10 years after leaving office. Therefore, President Clinton will be the last president to receive lifetime protection.

19. Thanks

I really didn't know. And your probably right, that is going to be an expense for the remainder of Obama's life. There are some very sick people out there.

10. When does this witch get arrested?

She can accuse people falsely, make up stories about people and still keep her job? This is unreal. When does someone like Michelle get impeached or fired for doing shady stuff?

13. arrested, impeached or fired

At this point, I'd be content if she were just properly medicated.

14. Every time I re-read what she said, I start to

laugh.

Is she on drugs, or is something eating her brain cells?
