I -- Riley thanks for watching us and I love the latest on the Secret Service prostitute scandal upcoming.
But first the talking points memo personal generosity and social justice.
President Obama and Vice President Biden released -- 2011 tax returns and once again what they donated to charities instruct.
As you may know the president and the Democratic Party in general watt tax dollars to be re distributed.
In order to impose social justice on the nation.
Republicans oppose that.
Supporting safety nets would not cradle to grave entitlements.
Now last year the president and mrs.
Obama made about 800000.
And they donated 22% of that the charity very generous.
The largest contribution was to the Fisher house which helps military families.
But Vice President Biden is another story he donated just over 1%.
Of his entire income to charity.
That's paltry -- might say that's cheap.
That is what the vice president has done every year since he's been in office.
By contrast is estimated that Mitt Romney donated 19%.
Of his 21 million dollar income to charity last year.
We will know for sure until his tax returns are released.
In his second to last year in office President Bush the younger donated 18% of his income -- -- Dick Cheney donated five and a half percent.
However in 2005.
The cheneys donated a whopping 77%.
Of their almost nine million dollars in income.
Bill Clinton is also generous in his personal donations but not so Al Gore in fact in 1997 as vice president.
Who are made about 200000 dollars he donated 353.

Brooke says that conservative Americans get about 30% more to charity on average than households headed by liberals.
And that's backed up by a global study which has conservatives give almost twice as much to charity as liberals do.
There's no question that Americans who believe it self reliance a more generous to those in -- -- folks who espouse a federal and state.
The importance of this data cannot be underestimated because millions of Americans are now locked into a mindset that the feds will take care of the port and this it.
And that they themselves have to do anything.
I mean Vice President Biden and Al Gore should be embarrassed.
By their lack of generosity.
Charitable giving is obviously a personal matter but it does say something about Carrick.
We're living in a very very selfish time and that trend is becoming more entrenched with the cold truth it it's.
The federal government's almost bankrupt so we the people.
After healthy child.
