Whoever steps forward to take on that pit of vipers known as the Fed is on a suicide mission.
Obama could go the route of that carpenter from Nazareth that kicked the moneychangers out of the Temple and was killed for his efforts.
Or he could take the route of President Andy Jackson, who closed down the 2nd National Bank of the US and got shot for his efforts, but not killed.
Or President Lincoln, who was opposed to an Independent US Treasury, but refused to pay usurious rates to finance the Civil War, so he printed US greenbacks.
Murdered by an assassin's bullet.
Or President Kennedy, who printed US government currency, around 4 billion dollars worth, money which LBJ took out of circulation after Johnson took over after JFK was murdered by an assassin.
You can either take an axe to cut out the cancer infecting America or go about that job with the deft hands of a surgeon using a scalpel. Either way, whoever takes on the task is going to have a bulls eye on their back.

One month after the inauguration of Abraham Lincoln, the first shots of the American Civil War were fired at Fort Sumter, South Carolina on April 12,1861. ...
Certainly slavery was a cause for the Civil War, but not the primary cause. Lincoln knew that the economy of the South depended upon slavery and so (before the Civil War) he had no intention of eliminating it. Lincoln had put it this way in his inaugural address only one month earlier:
"I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the states where it now exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so."
Even after the first shots were fired at Fort Sumter, Lincoln continued to insist that the Civil War was not about the issue of slavery:
"My paramount objective is to save the Union, and it is not either to save or destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it."
