    As Barack Obama found out last week, when you run for president you can’t even get away with being a lousy giver to charity. After Mr. and Mrs. Obama released their tax returns, the press quickly noticed that, between 2000 and 2004, they gave less than one percent of their income to charity, far lower than the national average. Their giving rose to a laudable five percent in 2005 and six percent in 2006, with the explosion of their annual income to near $1 million, and the advent of Mr. Obama’s national political aspirations (representing a rare case in which political ambition apparently led to social benefit).



    Read on to find out how much the Cheneys gave to charity:

    Like some of the folks on this board he is most likely waiting to give through the most inefficient means possible. Which is evidenced by the lack of personal giving by liberals. Since government exacerbates the costs related to meeting peoples needs this is the poorest of stewardship.
