Barack Obama and his surrogates in the media seized on a miscue by John McCain during the campaign about him not knowing "how many houses he owned
". The media nor Obama and his marry cultists reported that McCain didn't own those houses, they belonged to his wife. As usual, that didn't let the "seriousness of the charge" get in the way of ignoring the facts. The media never reported that Obama spend twenty five thousand dollars a year to send his two daughters to an exclusive "PRIVATE SCHOOL" in Chicago. Tuition for the Chicago Lab School
where Obama’s daughters attended was $18,492 a year per child. I guess it was worth it right? Obama and Michelle didn't have to worry about their daughters Malia who is 10,and Sasha who is 7 rubbing elbows with the "great unwashed masses" of the Chicago Public School System. Barack Obama claims to support public education just not for his daughters. Smell the hypocrisy yet? That's one illustration of "being out of touch" with the average American. Oh wait, I have more. The now President elect and his wife have decided to send their children to another "private school" in the suburbs of Maryland. His two daughters are going to attend the "Sidwell Friends School". The Sidwell School is a pretty famous school among the "liberal elites". Chelsea Clinton attended Sidwell a decade ago, Joe Biden's grandchild attends Sidwell currently and Al Gore's son attended Sidwell. How ironic is that? These two faced hypocrites talk so loudly on their soapboxes about the importance of PUBLIC SCHOOLS, yet typical to form they don't lead by example and send "their kids" to PRIVATE SCHOOL. The cost to attend Sidwell per year per child is around thirty thousand dollars. I'm sure the middle class can relate to Obama and Michael on that right? Here's the ultimate slap in the face of class warfare and shameless hypocrisy. Barack Obama is going to give his wife Michelle a rare thirty thousand dollar "thank you" ring. Imagine that, his ring or should I say her ring will cost more then the cost of an average citizen's automobile.
If I wanted to I could comment on their million dollar mansion. If the average median income of the lower middle class is around fifty thousand dollars a year, then that would mean that the Obama's house is twenty times the annual lower middle class salary right? So who's really out of touch? How funny is this considering that one of the black value system creeds of Obama's old church was to "reject" middle classism". If all that being said, his half brother still lives on thirty dollars a year, and his aunt still lives in a slum in Boston. Spread that wealth right?!!
