    Belief: “There’s only so much you can eat. There’s only so big a house you can have. There’s only so many nice trips you can take. I mean, it’s enough.”

    Here is the action that does not conform:
    Date: Fox article December 4th, 2019.
    Action: Buys a 7,000sqft home at ~$12,000,000

    Your claim: his words of saying he had enough last year was somehow a future admission of he had enough (then..2018) knowing he was going to buy an extravagant home (now...2019) in the future?.... and not hypocricy... bruh - i can't even

    see your problem is thinking that a $12M home is too big, when i think it would have to be like a $50M home to qualify as hypocrisy

    its a subjective standard

    i mean, if he buys the nice bread at the store - is that hypocrisy?

    what about a $9M house? $5?

    $2M?

    wheres the line? how much is obama allowed to spend on a house without being a hypocrite, in your opinion?

No one wants rich people to stop spending their money on lavish things. We want rich people to spend money because it stimulates the economy. But I fail to see how living in a big house means that you can't believe that someone who makes $1 billion per year should pay more in social security tax than someone who makes $120k. This is America and everyone should have the opportunity to earn as much money as they want, but it doesn't mean the wealthy should benefit over regular workers through tax caps, capital gains tax, and tax loopholes just because they are wealthier.

    He's not wrong, there are all sorts of different methods for collecting on political QPQ. Just look at what Obama reaped from attending various events and "speaking". You can't act like powerful individuals don't abuse a wide variety of loopholes to line their pocket book. Obama was in a very powerful position and that comes with a lot of influence. Can't tell me he never once used that to benefit himself or those around him. Everyone does it, even Trump.

    what about a $9M house? $5?

    $2M?

    wheres the line? how much is obama allowed to spend on a house without being a hypocrite, in your opinion?
    Price is a part of the calc, but so also is the size of the house and amount of land it resides on... lol at ~$12million, 7,000sqft, 30+acre HOME not being excessive and being subjective....

    *edit - for your info, IDGAF that he's using his past position to be successful, I am laughing at the virtue signaling going on here.

    if he wasn't all about: the underprivileged, spread the wealth, etc. then i wouldn't look twice. the fact he had an interview talking about having too much then going out and being excessive is what has me raising an eyebrow.

    nobody will answer cuz they cant

    and they cant because hes not a hypocrite
    He could have spent most any number less than this $12 million 7k sq ft mansion that he actually bought. The key is modesty..

    But for shiits and giggles lets say he really had his heart set on Martha's Vineyard.. Here's one for $899k

    But you can't pander to the fuking Berniebots about wealth inequality and then buy a $12mil house lol.

    I would say anywhere over a $million would make the average American view Obama, or almost any politician, view them in a negative light. Especially if the politician is a Dem, which has a party line against making large amounts of money.
