    We have been told frequently by Obama pious and obviously PHONY statement:

    "It is that fundamental belief — I am my brother's keeper, I am my sister's keeper —"
    Blowhard's 2010 Tax Return
    $1,728,096 Obama's adjusted gross income
    245,075 14.18% of his income as donations to charities
    49,945 home mortgage interest
    122,527 Long term capital loss CARRYOVER!!! 7% sheltered income!!
    Obama's 2010 Tax Returns

    Romney in 2011
    $13,696,951 Taxable income
    $4,20,772 or 30% to charity

    In 2011, the Romneys paid $1,935,708 in taxes on $13,696,951 in mostly investment income.
    The Romneys’ effective tax rate for 2011 was 14.1%.
    The Romneys donated $4,020,772 to charity in 2011, amounting to nearly 30% of their income.
    The Romneys claimed a deduction for $2.25 million of those charitable contributions.
    The Romneys’ generous charitable donations in 2011 would have significantly reduced their tax obligation for the year. The Romneys thus limited their deduction of charitable contributions to conform to the Governor's statement in August, based upon the January estimate of income, that he paid at least 13% in income taxes in each of the last 10 years.

    In the words of Hillary.."
    " I think that the reports that you provide to us really require a willing suspension of disbelief."

    She could have said when Obama piously boasts.."i'm my brother's keeper" while giving HALF as much as Romney and ALL the while HIS own brother lives in a $12/year hut!!!

    I mean you obama koolaid drinkers.... really this is hypocrisy at it's absolute worse!

    I don't understand at all how you can have ANY belief in this hypocrite!

    Obama can definitely afford to upgrade the tin can roof on his brother house

    Ah.. but you see.. again Obama/Biden/progressives WANT the government to take care of us!
    That's why we have 47 million on food stamps today!
    The government provides our health care!
    And the results will be Cuban life style.. wait for the doctor, drive in 15 years a 2000 auto! But we'll have national health care! Food paid for. And all of us wearing the same clothes eating the same food.
    Glad I'm 70 years old and have had the freedoms and sad that will be taken away for my grand daughter!

    Let the Lefties choke on that for a while. But they will no doubt try to find something wrong with it.

    Please Obama supporters: Explain WHY your "generous" with other people's money president can't donate just a little more? After all Romney gave 30% while Obama only 14%!
