Obama Should Heed Voltaire....

...ah, The One has all the wise counsel he needs, whenever he passes a mirror.  Nevertheless, a warning from one of the great thinkers of the Enlightenment should at least be duly noted:

 "Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value --- zero." Voltaire (1694-1778)

Keep printing those Benjamins, Barack, and soon we'll all be left with nothing.

Well, as Obama has been known to tune out all but the true believers, it is unlikely he would ever pay heed to the good Fran├žois-Marie Arouet:

Voltaire was a French Enlightenment writer, historian and philosopher famous for his wit and for his advocacy of civil liberties, including freedom of religion and free trade. Voltaire was a prolific writer, producing works in almost every literary form including plays, poetry, novels, essays, and historical and scientific works.

Very little in common there.  And please - don't tell me that Obama also has "wrote" some books, either....because that conversation won't end well, trust me...
