“He's been campaigning so much (Instead of being President) he forgot... It's not like he hasn't done it on the links!”

“"He's been campaigning so much...."

Well, isn't that what Presidents do when they want to get reelected? Bush spent 47% of his time on vacations, while in office. Did you complain then too?”

“For 2010 he was paid a total compensation of over $8 million which includes an annual salary of a little over $1 million per year. That is the compensation he earns for running the company. The $95 million that he is getting paid now is to go away within 2 years.

That is what many people find outrageous. Just looking at his cash annual salary he would have to work 95 years to earn the same amount. Looking at his total compensation for 2010 he would have to work over 10 years to earn the same. Now he just has to voluntarily go away to earn $95 million within 2 years unconditional on improvements to the company.”
