There are several stories going around the net and at the DNC that if Romney is elected president he will be the richest in history.

Sorry but he will NOT be the richest, not by a long shot.

This is from Wikipedia but Time mag did an article two years ago on this very subject and they got the money right.

In todays dollars the honor of the RICHEST US President in history goes to John F Kennedy. Remember this is in todays dollars, when Kennedy was sworn in he was worth a cool $1 Billion.

The next in line is George Washington with $525 Million folowed by Thomas Jefferson at $212 and T. Roosovelt at $125 million. LBJ was worth $98 Million and FDR came in at $60 Million.

Obama is worth $5 million but 15 other presidents had LESS money than him. Ever Jimmy Carter was worth $7 Million.

Go down and there is a list of all the presidents.

The funny thing is what makes a Great President? Is being poor going to help or would you think a person that was rich? We are the silliest group of people that pick a leader based on some strange things.

We need a President that is good with money now more than ever before in our history as a nation. Obviously Romney is good with money.

While I would love to see a person that has worked on the front lines get up to president I think I would like for them to have had a little time at the top of a large company before they make it up to the Pres job. The reason is a person use to hard work has the work ethic but lacks the political tack to be the top decision maker as the pres has to manage the govt and work with a mixed group of BOD ie our legislatures.

Why would anyone want a poor President?

By definition, poor people cannot manage finances.

Nearly all people who win the lottery are bankrupt in 5 years. The divorce rate is in the high 90%.

What do you think would happen if you gave someone who has never earned a good living on their own and handed them a $14 Trillion economy?


Oh yea, we're living it;)

The Executive branch. CEO means Chief Executive Officer.

And Obama won the biggest lottery in history about 4 years ago.

Only in this case, he's bankrupting a entire nation, not just himself. My bet is that Michelle and Barack will be divorced within 3 years and Obama's personal lottery wealth will dwindle rather than grow.

Exactly.
