Ok so maybe he’s not a skier, but if he did want to take a ski or snowboard trip, President Barack Obama would certainly have the cash to do so.  According to their tax return, President Obama and his wife, Michelle, made $5.5 million in 2009 and paid nearly $1.8 million in income tax.  Most of their income came off the sales of the President’s books.  In addition, the first  family gave $329,000 to charities last year, and the President gave his $1.4 million Nobel Peace Prize award to 10 charities.
