I loathe just about everything Obama stands for and tried to do to this constitutional republic on a policy level, but have absolutely no problem with him raking in a nice pile of dough if that's what the market will bear.

I would say the same thing if he were being paid $4,000,000 or $40,000,000 or even $400,000,000...

He is selling a service and a buyer is willing to pay for that service.

End of story!

Knock 'em dead, Barry, old boy!

He's building his war chest so he can run again in 2020.



He already got 60 mil for a book deal.

O's about the biggest hypocrite I have ever seen.


You should check out the current potus. So many 180s he's permanently dizzy.

No person is worth 400,000 thousand dollars in speaking fees. I don't really care what side you're on, the left or the right. That money should be put toward poor kids schooling or the poor in general.

Why do some people refuse to read 8 pages of comments?

The issue was repeatedly explained.



That I can agree with. You explained it way back on page three when you admitted that what you're really all worked up over is the fact that people want to listen to what he has to say, so much so that they're willing to pay to do so.

All the whining about how much he's being paid is just window dressing for your real issue with it, which you've admitted to at least three times now.

Correct. It was explained that you were whining because you were jealous that Obama can make a lot of money talking to people.

The entire premise of these surprisingly lengthy discussion is ridiculous.


Well yeah... It's a neo thread. That's what he does whenever liberals or worse Obama is involved. Obama can't sneeze without it being some dark, evil Socialist conspiracy or whatnot.

I am less concerned about fees and payments to former politicians than I am about fees and payments to current politicians.

He's free to do it. But he's not free from everyone pointing out the blatant hypocrisy in it.

Lol. GOP supporters hate it when blacks or women play the same game as their monarchies of Bush and Trump. They will make a purging law about this next.

Just like we are perfectly free to point out how you guys harping on this supposed "hypocrisy" look like a bunch of butthurt haters. You guys only complained about Obama going on vacation after his Presidency was over, and now you are complaining on how Obama wants to earn his living going forward. You guys are super transparent with the hate here.

We reward people a lot for being rich,for being famous,for being cute,for being thin...One of the values I think we need to instill in our country,in our children, is a sense of 'usefulness, in other words,are we useful,are we making other peoples lives a little bit better? Barack Obama


At $400,000 a pop!

Jealousy is really a terrible thing. I found the words you just quoted from Obama to be inspiring, so much so.... I would probably even pay to hear more.

Negativity, blatant lack of knowledge about what socialism, communism and capitalism isn't something I care to pay to listen to - glad that ATS is free.

It's hypocritical to accept compensation for doing something?

That's new.

We already know.

Obama went on vacation.

Returned home with the plans of staying in politics.

The news has talked about for the past few days.


.....As opposed to promoting his private resort on the State Department Dime.


That's different!

Bwahahaaaaaaaaa!



Remember when candidate Barack Obama told Americans he did not run for president "to help out a bunch of fat cat bankers on Wall Street?"


WaPo Pleads with Obama to rethink Wall Street Payout for speech

Spin that born again once percent defenders.

Spin what? That some guy who works for WaPo doesn't like that Obama is getting $400k for speaking? Good for him. Looks like you two are two peas in a pod; whining about Obama's post-Presidency career.

I still don't care if Obama makes money speaking though. Mostly because I can think for myself and don't need WaPo's analysis to think for me.

So I guess you don't remember that.

The rest of us do.

I also remember Obama bailing out those same Wall Street bankers, so phooey to what he "ran on". I already know that he isn't a true Socialist, but a typical moderate liberal. But apparently you are having trouble getting that into your head so you think there is some hypocrisy here that doesn't exist. I blame the right wing programming you continually expose yourself to.

I wonder? is Neo is a bit embarrassed about making a thread that contradicts all his previous comments over years about adoring and applauding rich men in power but is too proud to simply bow out after the hypocrisy has been repeatedly pointed out that he is now attacking the black guy he hates for making money.
Even his usual echo chamber have mostly turned their back on his socialist comments.

Poor lonely Neo.
