More Than “Change”: Obama Assets Valued at $1.8M to Nearly $12 Million


obama1The White House says the assets held by President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama are valued between $1.8 million and nearly $12 million.

Financial disclosure documents released Monday showed the assets for last year. The couple’s assets, which include Treasury bonds and retirement accounts, were valued at a maximum of $7.5 million in 2009.

Assets are listed in wide ranges on the disclosure forms – for example, between $1 million and $5 million – making it difficult to determine their value with precision.

Royalties from Obama’s books, “Dreams From My Father” and “Audacity of Hope,” totaled between about $1 million and $6 million.

  1. An American Soul making a successful enlargement of his wealth by public service and intelligent discourse. Wouldn’t it be great if this was the way many of us made the wealth we enjoy? Mr. Obama runs away with the show in his years of work and service. Great Job Barack. We can all learn from your accomplisment and conservativism and worldliness. I am inspired to be an American.
