Athletes, musicians, authors, experts command high fees. Why begrudge @BarackObama his due? Especially when he does good in the world?

Barack Obama was a state senator, US senator, atty, Constitutional Law Prof, community organizer, & 2-term POTUS. How much should he charge? pic.twitter.com/ZEFR75VIYR

If someone wants to pay Barack Obama $400,000 to give a speech I can't think of a single reason why he shouldn't take it

What kind of dumb fuckery is thinking Barack Obama should work for free now? He's a constitutional lawyer, one of the best organizers..

Attacking Barack Obama for being successful is a surefire way to attract the black voters that a progressive would need to actually win

1. Being POTUS is the highest GOV job in the land
2. Once you finish the job, you're a Civ again
3. @BarackObama can do whatever he wishes!
