|Young Barack, honing his can kicking skills|
Mr. Schwatzman says he plans to offer it to the major auction houses, and says it should be worth millions.
In the photo, a very young Barack Obama is seen practicing what would someday be his economic policy.
The photo was either taken in Kenya, Indonesia or Hawaii, based on which version of the President's childhood you are willing to believe.
President Obama has to kick the can for another year or so, and then he can retire comfortably and earn a seven figure salary giving speeches to liberal groups. As President Clinton abundantly demonstrated, "the real money comes after you retire. You can cash in giving speeches for $200,000 a pop."
This explains why the President insisted on a debt ceiling compromise that wouldn't require another vote "until after the next election." The last thing he wanted was to revisit this issue while campaigning for reelection next year. If he wins reelection, then it will become a moot point, since he is limited to only two four year terms.
So he will "kick the can down the road" to the next President, whether it is a Democrat or a Republican.
