    I must give Obama credit. His charitable donations must be commended...

    However I was amazed to know that I gave more to charities than Joe Biden!!!!!! Biden only gave $1800.... WTF?

    No wonder he wants to force more taxes on people...

    Note to Joe: Just because he doesn't give his money away to help people doesn't mean the rest of us don't.

    Can anyone find the numbers on Sarah Palin's charitable donations? Seeing how she has made over $12M in 9 months and all. Plus, can anyone find a record of her donating the $150,000.00 speaking fee back to the Tea Baggers?

    With the left wing media's obsession with destroying her, I'm sure they would have found something by now...

    The problem is that Democrats are the self appointed party of "caring for others..." Evidently Biden is not included in the group. He's real good at spending other people's money.

    What's up with your obsession with Sarah? Kman was commending Obama on his charitable giving and you come back with "what about sarah?". You leftwing idiots never cease to amaze me.

    What's so crazy is this woman is fighting for less Government and lower taxes and they constantly attack her. That is messed up. Maybe VaYank is afraid Palin is trying to take away his/her free Government handouts...

    I haven't heard not one single valid reason to dislike Sarah. They claim she's stupid, yet she has been successful her entire life. They say she's a quitter forgetting that their man Obama is also a quitter and both quit for very different reasons. Sarah quit to save her constituents a lot of money. Obama quit for higher power and personal gain. I agree with you that most of VaYanks ilk are afraid of losing their so-called entitlements.

    I do not pay Palin's salary nor does she have any direct responsibility to legislation and policy making.

    So why should I or ANYONE care about what she does with her time and money.

    Why does a thread about President Obama often include a comparison to Sarah Palin.

    I find it very humorous.

    Nah. Mr. Yank has proven that he is not one that is all for entitlements. He is much more of a moderate than you give him credit for being. He is what I like to refer to as level headed and open minded, and a valid alternative to my way of thinking.

    Glad to see he is giving to charity.

    Now being charitable is a completely different story.

    However, his income statements give us plenty of reason to cease making the Presidency of the United States a paying position. Let's see some real government service. It's not like they wont have millions in book deals later.
