Old School

Politician buys unremarkable stock.

Unremarkable stock skyrockets in price months later.

Politician unloads his stock the very next day, walks away with a handsome profit.

I'm soure there was nothing untoward going on, at all.

"I'm sore there was nothing untoward going on, at all."

Well, I'm sore because I suspect there was!

Some guys are just lucky. No need to be a spoil sport over it. He got a big fat cash advance on a children's book too shortly before becoming POTUS. You read too much into the sequence of events. It's all quite random, you know. Pure coincidence.

I assume this will be one of those things that not only will the media ignore (duh), but the attention deficit right-o-sphere as well.

Some folks are lucky, Other folks are smart. The rest are crooks.
IMO this poseur fits the last example.

Obama actually made money on the stock market at some point in his life? Good grief, why are we letting this dunce run the country?! Let's bring that other guy back, he couldn't profit on an investment if his life depended on it.

Wow, a 2 year old New York Times story about 4 year old investments, with a bottom line $13k loss by Obama btw, becomes news for the "everything Barry does is an outrage" crowd.

Next thing you know someone will be upset that AIG used stimulus money to pay off their creditors. Oh wait...

Keep 'em coming, this is more fun than the Daily Show.
