I do recall hearing about that. If I had their kind of money I’d probably do the same thing . Buy a huge mansion and live the good life.

When exactly did he inherit it? Before or after he established his success?

His energy use sounds about par for the course.
Reread the article. That house is 10,070-square-foot... it used 230,889 kWh.

A year. It uses 30,889 a month. Mine's 3400 square foot and 2 old poops and a cat use 3000kWh a month. And mine is as energy efficient as we can make it. So he uses +/- 10 x more than me a month. But I have no office employees. How about they figure what an additional office would cost?

Is there anyone in politics without a book deal? Even the talking heads all have 2-3 books to sell you.
"Never seen so many people mad at capitalism because a black man made money from a book."

There, I fixed that for you.

People can get upset at this post all they want, but it happens to be true.

Barack Obama will *NEVER* be forgiven by certain persons for breaking into one of the last and most exclusive white male clubs in the USA; POTUS.

People don't like uppity ***** who don't know their place, and worse hate to see them succeed. Just sixty or so years ago they'd lynch a few to make an example.

Fact that mere mention of Obama sends Donald Trump and no small number of others foaming at the mouth, and eating their livers out is proof what am saying is true. Indeed the creation of this thread and fact it has generated several pages of responses again proves people just won't let it go.

It's really embarrassing that you think politicians getting rich off being in public office is a good thing.

Give me a break. No one gives a crap about Obama being black. I voted for him in 2008. Do you think all these racists just overcame that for one day to vote for him and went back to being racist. God, it's sad how snowed you people are by Democrats.

Says something about the Obamas' thoughts on global warming and imminent rising of sea levels when they choose to buy a hotel sized, oceanfront mansion, doesn't it?
