Here’s the new outrage from the right. President Obama signed a book deal for an abridged version of “Dreams From My Father” aimed at middle school aged kids. Basically the published will do the book and Obama will sign off on the final copy. For this, Obama gets $500,000. The deal was reportedly in the works way before he even took office.
I guess Obama shouldn’t be making money off of previous deals now that he is in office. That is wrong and something that Republicans would never do.
An analysis released by a Democratic senator found that Vice President Dick Cheney’s Halliburton stock options have risen 3,281 percent in the last year, RAW STORY can reveal.
Oh that was in 2005, so “last year” refers to 2004. But I guess it is fine for Cheney to make money off of a war that he championed for. I mean seriously, wars don’t cost money and lives like a children’s book does.
