The New York Post, noting Barack Obama is looking at big pay days for speaking engagements and a book deal, is asking when the former president will have made enough money.

"Cantor Fitzgerald LP will pay former President Barack Obama $400,000 to speak at a conference in September, likely the first of many lucrative Wall Street paydays," the newspaper said in an editorial.

"Obama doesn't really need the money: He earned over $14 million for his first three books, and bidding for his next deal (a package with Michelle) has run over $60 million. But he has every right to cash in on his star power and his hard-won expertise."

But the Post acknowledged he would likely give a substantial portion of it to charity. But the newspaper could not help but point out a speech Obama delivered in 2010.

It added: "All that said, there is something a bit . . . rich here, given what Obama had to say in a 2010 speech pushing tougher Wall Street regulation:

"'We're not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that's fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you've made enough money.'"

And noted: "Which makes you wonder when Obama will reach the point where he's earned enough."
