Interesting.Well, I could probably go through and pick apart that bullshit piece by piece. But I'll just do the simplest thing and give you this link to show you how much bullshit this email forwarded crap you posted is.
The quick skinny. Bidens donated about 1.5% of their income to charities, the Obama's about 22%.
In addition you have things like how Obama was awarded $1.4 million for winning the Nobel Peace Prize and didn't collect a dime and instructed the Nobel commity to give it to charity.
So how about in the future you don't post things that are demonstrably false.
When it comes to charitable donations, I applaud both the President and Mitt Romney for their generosity - I am nowhere near as generous (on the other hand I make much less than either of them).
I will say, as it relates to Governor Romney, however, that his faith essentially requires him to tithe 10%, and it's hard to know, in light of the revelation of his offshore entities, whether he is actually donating an overall percentage as high as the figure posted by a777pilot (assuming the figure he posted is even grounded in fact at all, since it appears the figure for the President was wildly inaccurate). Also he is astronomically wealthy and thus has a far greater ability to give generously without feeling a pinch. Again, though, he is to be recognized for his generosity in donations.
