Obama Book Deal

I don't know how much more bad publicity Mr. Obama can get but let me add some more. As Obama was talking about how Americans are hurting and how the average American is going through such hard times, he signed a book deal worth $500,000 dollars just days before he took office. As the President, he will be making $400,000 dollars for each of the four years he is in office. Not to mention he also made $1.2 million dollars last year on royalties from previous book sales. If the President is always going to be a wealthy person why are we paying them $400,000 dollars of taxpayer money? That may not be a lot in the overall scheme of things but every little bit counts; before you know it you widdle down a lot.
