Barack Obama Is Rich

When Mitt Romney reminds everyone of his enormous personal success, it creates serious problems for a candidate already struggling to connect with average Americans. Every time Romney says he knows NFL team owners, or NASCAR team owners, it adds to the perception that he's out of touch with average Americans suffering to make ends meet.

But what about President Obama? He's not in Romney territory, but the president is doing pretty well for himself -- and he likes mentioning it on the stump.

"I don't believe that giving someone like me a $250,000 tax cut is more valuable to our future than hiring transformative teachers or providing financial aid to the children of a middle-class family," Obama said yesterday at Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland.
