Obama gets a check mark

“Shooting straight from the hip”

We must always acknowledge the good a person does as well as the flawed.

According to Obama’s 2012 tax return he and the First Lady filed their income tax returns jointly and reported adjusted gross income of $608,611. The Obamas paid $112,214 in total tax about 18.4 percent.
The President and First Lady also reported donating $150,034 – or about 24.6 percent of their adjusted gross income – to 33 different charities. The largest reported gift to charity was $103,871 to the Fisher House Foundation.

Regardless of his motivations, whether political or benevolent he donated a good portion of his income to a very worthy charity. There are no people on the planet that deserve all the care they can get more than our service men and women.

Mark this on your calendar. On Saturday 4-13-13 we are going to give Obama a check mark for his contribution to a foundation that takes care of ex-military people in need.
