Hopefully not for the bills he signs, unless those Chicago roots hang tough.

But, his signature on the bill he will have to sign for ‘payback’ to all those big ‘donors’ will be worth even more.

250 copies ... at more than $6,000 apiece

Yea there's a reason most of us working class schmucks never heard of this "tradition". We pay more than than in TAXES to support these creeps that are just having a good time.

What about OUR traditions that are being sold down the toilet?

If I had that kind of money to burn I’d buy one just for the pleasure of painting Jimmy Carter’s face out of the photo...... I’d leave his signature, though, just for the reminder that we had to endure 4 years of him and then many years of his strutting, imbecilic vanity as a “former statesman” jetting around the world.

Come to think of it, I’d do the same for Clinton and Obama...... :^)

Come to think of it, I’d just have to burn the photo b/c who’d want that kind of reminder?

I got Reagan's autograph before he was president on an article entitled: I'd rather be Right than President. Can't remember what magazine it was in. Doesn't matter, someone stole it.

You’re forgetting that 0 may be the ‘new’ $10 bill. Hamilton would get gone, but who cares about Hamilton, right?

I’m sorry, but, if deliberate, this is the act of a patrician pig. Even if RR did this, he was plain, bad wrong. Our nation’s leaders are there to serve - they are not rock stars with staged events known to create revenue.

0 should be the ‘first’ 3-dollar bill instead. It would be so-o-o-o-o-o fitting.

LOL! You nailed it.

I’d say his sig is worth about as much as a sheet of Charmin one-ply (used).

I think they should put him on the $3 bill since he's as fake as the current $3 bill is!

I don’t say this without serious consideration. Obama may be the anti-Christ. The level of adoration is Biblical.

I was thinking the same. He may not be at the moment.. but his first steps look eerily biblical. the masses don’t seem to care... he is a messiah. all of this, and they just idolize him blindly.
