Obama's Pension Bigger Than Romney's

Remember the President's self-satisfied little zinger, applauded by reporters, about how Romney has a larger pension than he does?

Actually, not true.

President Obama's pension is larger than Romney's -- and the other big difference? Taxpayers aren't subsidizing Romney's retirement.  We will, however, have the dubious pleasure of funding Obama's.

The whole episode encapsulates the disgraceful narrative of Obama's 2012 campaign: Applauded by the "unbiasaed" press, Obama launches an attack based on envy and resentment that's ultimately wrong on the facts . . . wherein it turns out that Obama, supposed "man of the people," is actually going to enjoy a $6 million pension provided courtesy of the American taxpayer.  Romney, the "rich" guy we're all supposed to hate, may have a very comfortable retirement -- but all the money he spends will be what he himself earned in the private sector, as he didn't even accept a government salary when he served as governor of Massachusetts.

Anyone want to bet that Romney will also give more -- both in absolute terms and as a percentage -- to charity?
