    The president and the first lady earned an income of $5,505,409 in 2009 and paid $1,792,414 in federal income tax last year, according to the Obamas' tax returns released today by the White House.

    The Obamas joint tax filing shows that the majority of the family’s income was from proceeds from the same of the President’s books “The Audacity of Hope,” and “Dreams from My Father.”

    The Obamas last year donated $329,100 to 40 different charities. The largest personal donation was $50,000 to CARE and the United Negro College Fund. The smallest donation, $150, went to Crusade of Mercy, an organized community health and social service resource in Chicago. The Obamas donated $5,000 to the Haiti Foundation of Hope. They also donated $250 to St. Johns Church and $200 to 19th Street Baptist Church in D.C., both churches which the Obamas attended this past year in Washington, D.C.

    Haha, no silly. Liberals dont' believe in spreading their wealth. They belive in taking yours and spreading it. DUH!

    Of course he won't. Countless and repeated studies and research has shown people who consider themselves conservative or right of center give far more to charity than those who consider themselves liberal or left of center.

    As I like to say:

    Conservatives practice what we preach.
    We also practice what liberals preach when it comes to helping others. They should try to do the same.

    Well--Obama's half brother still lives in a hut in Kenya--earning the equivalent of $12.00 per month--his aunt is getting deported from the United States.

    What ever happened to "charity starts at home"?

    Would you help your brother out if you made that kind of money--or your aunt that lives in a poor district--who is to be deported?

    I would. Obama hasn't.

    OK...Let's run with that....

    First of all, he pays nowhere near 35% in taxes, as the bulk of his income comes from the pockets of the productive to begin with.....The productive pay his taxes by proxy.

    Secondly, how much more would it cost him to help his own brother, if he were to boost his annual income by a multiple of 10?...$1,500!

    The manchild is a stone cheapskate.
