The president's case is slightly different. Unlike most presidents we've had, Barack Obama is a dedicated ideologue. He believes developed nations are obligated to financially support the entire world. Should plebeians in the West be forced into an 18th century level of subsistence to bring the Third World into the Bronze Age, so be it. This is only fair. For Obama, the personal gain factor – while definitely a consideration – is almost secondary.
