With all the education that President Barack Obama secured in the hallowed halls of the Ivy League institutions he attended, I wonder if he ever studied the classics.
“The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.”
These important and significant words were spoken 2,064 years ago by Cicero – 55BC
Apparently none of the all-knowing White House advisors, czars, or our president ever read Cicero.
