I mean like a real job. Something in the private sector. Jobs that don't have "foundation" or "community organizer" in the title anywhere.
You people continue to be problematic, do you really think that Trump is a 'self made' man? He is nothing more than a cowardly man-baby with a big mouth.
Lets make America great again. Look at it this way: with Trump maybe even hillary and obama can get a job, someday. If they apply themselves.
Why do you care? Why is it any of your business? Do you have gainful employment?
Aw, he's problematic huh? People supporting a leader they like is too much for you to handle? Deal with it already. You people are the ones rioting and acting like fools because you lost an election!
Obama just left the job, and they are both not exactly likely to need a benefit to get by. So does it matter?
Former presidents usually don't become employees. They write bestselling books and do speaking engagements.
Obama will probably be like Carter, Reagan, the Bushes, and Bill Clinton earning money for being who they are.
I can't think of any (modern former president) who went to work in the "private sector" as an "employee" after leaving office. They get a good pension and secret service protection for life.
As for Hillary, she's not hurting for money she's a multi-millionaire. My guess is she will continue to make money off of speaking engagements.
It's been said Hillary averages $200k per speech and Trump was getting $1.5 million before becoming a candidate. I'm sure Obama will be fine.
Whomever said "Talk is cheap" was wrong!
Excuse me. President Carter builds houses for the homeless, goes to third world countries to monitor attempts at free elections, even teaches Sunday School at his church. Yes, that is being who he is - but he's in a category separate from the "players of celebrity golf" group.
They are both multi-millionaires. They don't need jobs.
How about you?
I have to work to pay for obamas healthcare
Well you'll be paying for Trump's healthcare soon. As a multi-billionaire he's used to some high-class hygiene standards. Apparently even his showers are golden.
So what are you doing on here? You should be out working. The president's golden showers won't pay for themselves.
Have any ex presidents or their spouses found gainful employment? Not sure.
Any luck in the job dept for hillary or obama? How do they pay their bills with no jobs.
Obama's annual presidential pension is $205,700—the same amount as former presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Jimmy Carter. (Obama will get that for the rest of his life.)
Both Obama and Hillary are multi-millionaires! (Hillary is richer though)
Not many millionaires spend time scrolling through indeed.com or monster.com looking for a job. He will make a ton of money writing books and giving speeches like all modern former U.S. presidents have done.
Trust me he won't be hurting or having a hard time paying his bills!
Thats awesome. He should have no problem paying for his own health insurance.
True they all wont go through rugh time (financialwise) because of the pension the get
Hillary and Bill take funds from the Clinton Foundation. That's how they paid for Chelsea's mega bucks wedding. All completely ILLEGAL. But when has that ever bothered a Clinton?
Why work? They are the elite now who travel and flit among the very rich. The celebrity is their sell able commodity.
Do you mean a real job like the kind that Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, and George Bush found when they left office?
Doubt it - what skill set could they put on their resume outside of "professional politician"?
I doubt hillary is physically or mechanically inclined enough to fix a flat tire or jump start a car. Okay hillary the conrol rods have to have a secure green light before starting the reactor: " oh why, what difference does it make? Make sure the traffic accidents are blood typed before rolling them in surgery, " oh why what difference does it make?
To reply to this I got a Forum Thread Inactive sign. Just like Hillary and Obamas job search. Inactive. Months laters. A year..
At least they waited until they were no longer on the taxpayer's dime to take four hours a day of "executive time,"
and record numbers of vacation days (after promising he wouldn't take any)
To Pretty Panther, I wonder if some people have better things to do than to have superfluous posts. Who cares if Ms. Clinton & ex-President Obama found so-called gainful employment after their political tenure. Ms. Clinton has written several books & is worth millions. Obama has monies invested & is wealthy. He is purported to have engagements. Why is OP worried about someone else's "gainful employment" as if their political offices weren't gainful. OP should stop wasting forum space.
Pretty Panther, there are people who need to be verbally slapped into intelligence. The more I see in these forums, the more I believe in the verbal slapping........Will you join me..........
Multi Millionaire Politicians. I just wonder why none of them ever get hired as top people at Sachs or Shell. I suspect a lack of real skillz or in cases lack of an actual work history.
I don't have any problem verbally slapping people, just ask GA.
I've backed off a bit in the forums the last week or so. The shooting has me sickened, and some of the perspectives here make me nauseous.
I guess you consider Dubya's puppy painting to be gainful employment since you didn't mention him.
If either of them did decide to go back to work at a "normal" job I'm sure their Harvard and Yale law degrees would look okay on a resume.
Name one president who has ever gone on to a "real" job. William Howard Taft became a supreme court justice after being president. That's the only one I can name.
Some do find ways to contribute to our society, but most live off their celebrity status.
Both Hillary and Obama were (lawyers) in a former life.
Being a lawyer is still considered a "job".
Obama also was a college professor for a while too.
What is wrong with a job with a foundation or being a community organizer? These are noble jobs and you don't have to be a president to do these jobs. Many people work in foundations and as community organizers, and they do a lot of good for others.
Anyway, according to Google the "Secretary of the Treasury pays a taxable pension to the president. Former presidents receive a pension equal to the pay that the head of an executive department (Executive Level I) would be paid, as of 2015 $203,700 per year. The pension begins immediately after a president's departure from office."
I believe former presidents also earn from giving speeches. President Jimmy Carter, as earlier mentioned, builds homes for the homeless. He came to the Philippines and he whacked that hammer on the nail personally, and two of my former maids benefitted from this good man's work. How many people can say, "My house was built by the hands of a former president of the United States?"
One thing that conservative Americans can always be certain of , If a Hillary , a Bernie Sanders , a Jill Stein , an Elisabeth Warren leaves public office , gives up on the public pay- check , It will have to be even a more attractive portfolio like a private funded "foundation ", an Ivory Tower , or a lobbying job that will attract them !
"Gainful Employment" to liberals is gaining something at all others expense .
Since they both are multimillionaires, why don't they practice what they preached? Redistribute all their wealth and become members of the middle class. Right, in a pig's eye, they will. Liberal hypocrites.
MaureenJane: Do you have a source for that statement?
Any luck in Obama and Hillary becoming productive members of society?
I don't know what Obama is up to, but it appears Hillary has a full time job of making excuses. Being a Clinton, I'm sure she's found a way to make it pay well.

Do you think Obama is really encouraging people to riot?There is talk he is encouraging the riots. If he is this is terrible and unacceptable of a president. He is supposed to be uniting the country not splitting it apart.

This is a shocking relvelation, if true, undermines our whole democratic process...Why is this not headline news?

her? Why? Why not? Ms. Clinton seem to have the best qualifications for president. She also has political experience and is a quite savvy person?
