Does Obama really care?

  • Follow Letters

Mitt Romney’s generosity is very well-documented. These stories range from buying gifts for a family on hard times during Christmas to Romney buying material and physically helping to build a park in memory of a child who had died. These stories range from helping a family with poor credit purchase a home, to visiting and spending time with a dying child to ease the child’s transition from this world. The Romneys even helped save a family when their boat sank!

President Obama’s wealth has gone from about $1.2 million to more than $7 million during his tenure as president. Despite Obama’s wealth, I have not seen or heard of one act of generosity by Obama that involved him personally doing something to help someone else.

So I have a question for the liberals who accuse Romney of not caring: Exactly what stories exist of Obama’s personal charity to those who are suffering or less fortunate? While you bash Romney, please show me stories of Obama’s caring.

It seems to me that Obama only extends caring when he can write a government check – and then he calls that “compassion”!

bs spin. that's laughable. nothing in what i've said is bs spin. and i'm waiting for you to give me a credible source that documents our President gving free healthcare to illegal immigrants.

and i have to make one more comment, before going out to dinner, in regards to CG's list of our President's failures. how in the heck can anyone think that canadian oil is "ours" to give away to china. where do you people come up with this stuff? it's canadian oil destined for the world market at market price. you folks crack me up.

By executive decree he has
Unpublished

By executive decree he has ordered the immigration laws ignored and work permits issued, which paves the way to free healthcare, because they do not report income by working under the table. Just another backdoor tactic Obama does so well. Joe Wilson spoke truth, Obama lied.

Barack Obama is an actor...He

Barack Obama is an actor...He knows exactly what to say and when and how to say it. Videos he made at Loyola University tells us how he formed a black coalition to get black votes...Read Bob Woodward..he says the mess we find ourselves in due to lack of leadership by Obama..That being president is a 24/7 job (which we all already knew) but Obama treats it as something to do only when HE feels like it.
Obama was telling college kids in Ohio today that he spends every waking moment trying to make things better for them. Really, Barack? Campaigning non-stop, jumping on a plane and leaving NY while the UN meeting was still taking place. You know what you call those who run from their duties.......Yes. You got it.

Bantana you crack me up,

Bantana you crack me up, Americans could have had good jobs building the pipe line to Lousianna or Texas Americans could have had good jobs processing and handling the oil sent from Canada. Obama killed the pipeline and the jobs with a stoke of his pen.

The Obama administration

The Obama administration doctored a scientific report on oil drilling in the gulf another lie. The Obama administration defied a judge's order to prevent drilling in the gulf and has managed to ruin oil production in the gulf. Obama told Brazil that America will be their best oil customer! This is from fact check. In May 2010, production in the Gulf peaked and then continued to decline for the rest of the year. And the Energy Information Agency expects this decline to continue for at least two years more -- by about 240,000 barrels per day in 2011 and by an additional 200,000 barrels per day in 2012.

"Since there is a lag time from the time an exploration permit is approved to the time of actual production, and since only a handful of permits for new wells have been granted since April of 2010, it is likely that Gulf of Mexico production will continue to be hit hard in 2012 and beyond," wrote Kyle Isakower, the vice president of regulatory and economic policy at the American Petroleum Institute, in a recent blog post.

In an interview with PolitiFact, Isakower added that "while the administration is correct" in its statistics, EIA found that "Gulf production peaked in May of 2010, due in large part to permits awarded three or more years earlier, and has been decreasing ever since. This matters because markets don’t look backward, they look forward."

We think that’s a fair point. Obama is indeed correct about the record-high levels of Gulf oil production in 2010. However, he ignores a downward trend that began in 2010 and that is projected to fall further over at least the next two years. We think it’s problematic to use the record-setting statistic to buttress the notion that Gulf oil production is on a healthy trendline. On balance, we rate Obama’s statement Half True.

Carcraft, "half true" is

Carcraft, "half true" is better than what normally comes out of his mouth and the mouths of those in his administration. Half true is a failing grade of 50%. Hopefully enough thinking Americans will not allow him to graduate to a second term.

Gee I guess everything on here is TRUE? Imagine that.

"That’s an impressive amount, as was the 14 percent in 2010 and the 25.1 percent in 2009, when he donated his entire Nobel Peace Prize earnings to charities"

Bantana I didn't just make that statement for no reason. Do you even READ the comments in order. My statement was in response to Burns statement above. Yes! Obama should have gave every penny he didn't earn and then some. How do you put him with the likes of Nelson Mandela, F W DeKlerk, Mother Teresa, Ghandi - for goodness sakes. He is self serving as is that wife of his. He wants to talk about the "common folk" yet has his kids EVER went to a public school. How about his millions of dollars? How is he part of the "common folks"? Give me a break!!

Mr Brown asked for a story

Mr Brown asked for a story where Obama PERSONALLY helped a fellow human being! Did Obama pay some ones rent when he was a community organizer? Did Obama ever pay for a student's scholarship? I do know Obama (in an act of great compassion) ended a DC school voucher program that was allowing poor ghetto kids get a decent education!
