You have got to be kidding

You have got to be kidding

Greta Van Susteren featured this as her “Off the Record” comment from last night’s show:

You have got to be kidding me.

This guy has a hell of a lot of nerve expecting taxpayers to give him an 18% raise at any time, let alone after he’s left office.

What’s really remarkable is this isn’t the first time Obama has sought an increase in “expenditures for former Presidents.”

In 2015, he asked for, and received, a $25,000.00 increase.

Now he wants to increase it again by $558,000 — just in time for him to become a “former president.”

What a dick.

Sorry, Greta, but I beg to differ. No former president needs an 18% increase in what he gets from American taxpayers. I don’t care how many cuts in waste, fraud and abuse they find to make up for it.

You don’t think Barack Obama is going to become fabulously wealthy after he leaves the White House?

Trust me. Within the first year, he’ll sign a seven-figure book deal to write his narcissistic memoir.

Okay, he’ll sign a seven-figure book deal to have somebody else write his narcissistic memoir.

He’ll rake in six figures every time he makes a speech to anyone stupid enough to pay him six figures to hear him speak.

Just like the Clintons before him, Obama is going to use his status as a former president to cash in big time.

It’s the Liberals who say that senior citizens who are well off don’t need to be collecting Social Security after they retire. So, let’s make Obama live by his own standard. Taxpayers shouldn’t have to finance Barack Obama’s post-presidential existence if his post-presidential existence includes a windfall of cash.

Hell, that makes far more sense than saying that well-off seniors who have been paying into Social Security their entire life aren’t entitled to the money they put in.

I think it’s time to revise the Former Presidents Act of 1958 to read: “Any President who leaves office earning less than $250,000 a year will receive a pension and expenditures. Every other President can suck it up, pay their own way or go pound sand.”

I am so sick and tired of the Obamas leeching off the American people.

    It’s one thing for the pigs to belly up to the trough. Obama wants to take the trough with him.
