*You* aren't everyone, and you also know very well what am talking about.

The Clintons have raked in *HUGE* sums since leaving office but get only slightly lower press than Obama.

Obama has been out of office for a few years now and a large segment of the population still won't leave him, and his missus alone.

Donald Trump (and large part of his followers) are obsessed with Obama for one large reason; his race, there just isn't any other reason. Indeed when you read their comments and or observe their actions motives become clear.

Again what other logical reason is there for starting this thread (and the scores of others similar in forum), other than some sort of obsession with Obama. Root of which is quite simply race.

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 not capitalism or racism. It's the hypocrisy of it. He is in favor of all kinds of energy saving schemes and then buys more house square footage than 5 families could fill.


I'm all for doing what you want but don't tell me what to do.

I think it was after he joined Islam.

Does he rent part of it out to the Secret Service like POTUS Trump does at Trump Tower and Mar a Lago?

I'm happy for them. They've earned it. They used to vacation at Martha's Vineyard so it's fitting that they would buy a summer home there. They'll have privacy on an island and the girls will be happy to go back to a place where they must have spent many happy vacations. There'll be room for all the secret service or whatever a former president requires. They can't really buy a cute little house in the suburbs, lol.

Probably won't be much of a carbon footprint--it's more like a low key summer place to get away from the awful heat and humidity of DC in summer. The main footprint I think of on Martha's Vineyard is made of beach sand, lol.

I voted for Obama too. Was one of the biggest mistakes that I've made in terms of voting.

How have the Obama's earned it? They've never had a job that wasn't government or academia. They are LEECHES, and hypocrites of the first order.

It was delivered in cash because sanctions permitted no bank to do any business with them.

I care not how conservative anybody is. Used to be a Bircher, myself. I get it. But at least be truthful. Your team has a lot going for it. Don't be like Donald.

I guess all those talks about reducing carbon footprints and rich people living too extravagantly was all just B.S.? They're definitely the most disingenuous liars to ever leech off our political system.

"Do as I say but not as I do" - This should be the motto for the modern day democrat party.
Cool story bro.

Jeez, they met while the both were employed at the same law firm. He was employed by the Catholic Church. That was his community organizer job.
