    Where did Obama get all his wealth?

    How did a person who came from non wealth, worked as a political organizer, and half term senator become a multimillionaire?

    A lot of it was from autobiographies that were just a bunch of made up stuff. :laugh:

    Obama's mother had a master's degree in anthropology and step-father had a master's degree in geography. They were upper middle class, not wealthy, but certainly couldn't be characterized as "non-wealth."

    Royalties from the sale of autobiographies brought him between $2M and $5M.

    Then there was that no show job he got his wife at a hospital in return for giving them tax dollars.

    And there was the money that he made off of the bogus real estate deal with that guy that ended up going to prison.

    In a nutshell, from all the right 'connections'.

    Since this Bush Depression began, most all good jobs go to someone who knows someone.

    The 'Bush Depression' had nothing to do with Obama's 'connections'.
