Obama: My family would be fine with just 1 term
Yahoo News ^ | 6/13/2011 | AP

Posted on 06/14/2011 6:25:44 AM PDT by NMEwithin

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama says his wife and daughters aren't "invested" in him being president and would have been fine had he decided against running for re-election. But he says they believe in what he's doing for the country. Asked about his family's reaction to his wanting another term, Obama said: "Michelle and the kids are wonderful in that if I said, `You know, guys, I want to do something different,' They'd be fine. They're not invested in daddy being president or my husband being president." He says first lady Michelle Obama would be the first one to encourage him to do something "a little less stressful" if she no longer thought that what they were doing was worthwhile for the country. Obama's interview aired Tuesday on NBC's "Today" show.

Damn right they would be. You are now set up for life with this one bull**** term. From here on out, it’s world jetsetter and huge “speaking” fees.

…It’s a lot of work destroying a country that’s been great for over 200 years….

Obama is already bringing his family (wife, daughters) into the 2012 election?

This man has no class.

A move from the White House to prison would be appropriate for the phony.

POTUS Obama is toast. He will not get re-elected. In fact, he would be wise not to run in 2012!!! And....yes, he belongs in prison for “treason” on many counts!!!!

His heart is no longer ‘in it.’ It is time to go. Anything else would be a complete disaster. Not like we’re not nearly there as it is, but if he no longer has the passion for country...then he is done. He can’t lead. He wasn’t a leader to begin with, but this kind of attitude on display is a failure.

So several questions become, if the man knows he has failed and has no heart left to put into the endeavor, does he have the integrity to step aside?

If the democrat party realizes the stone hung around their own necks called 0bama, will they force him aside?

Don’t let the door hit your skinny ass on the way out and don’t steal the silverware like the clintons did. Aside from that - don’t go away mad - actually scratch that - as long as you go away I frankly don’t care if you go away mad or not.

This guy just confirmed he is clueless...... he is an off centered ideologue with little idea of how to lead the vast majority whom do not share his beliefs.

He was a media moment that took a spot in a hysterical vacuum created by the mantra of hate Bush... We now suffer from “wrong guy” at the “right time” to get elected.

Superficial pop culture not rational real deep thinking allowed this tragedy to happen. The mess will be cleaned up come 2012. Hold onto your wallets, properties, guns and rights until then....

Maybe, with these comments, BO is trying to lessen the shock if he announces that he will be stepping aside. Like...oh, I talked it over with my family and it is okay with them if I decide to go back to an easy job and become a community organizer again. His heart was never in being a leader of all the people. He only wanted adoration, praise, and the perks.

would not surprise me if he is building himself a backdoor, if he thought he’d lose, he use michelle and the kids as an excuse to run away, he’s run away from everything before, only now he’d get all themoney and wouldnt have to work for it. He’d pull a last minute moonlight flit, i could see that.

Of course they are fine with it. They are set for life now.
A generous pension and Secret Service to coddle them for the rest of their time on earth, on taxpayer expense.
And if he needs extra cash, he can always take the teleprompters on tour anytime.

What an arrogant a-hole!....Does the boy-King see the hand writing on the wall?....He’s going to be sliced and diced in any debate. Watch him resign before the election. That would be awesome! Then we could laugh at pea brain Joe for a few months.

“A generous pension and Secret Service to coddle them for the rest of their time on earth, on taxpayer expense.”

If I’m not mistaken, Congress changed the law regarding SS protection for former presidents.

They now only get SS protection for ten years after leaving office.

I believe G.W. Bush is the first retired president to be so affected.

Aside:
I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a “loophole” in the law that permits exceptions for special cases. If so, Obama will certainly qualify!

“He says first lady Michelle Obama would be the first one to encourage him to do something “a little less stressful” if she no longer thought that what they were doing was worthwhile for the country.”

This quote is just unbelievable. As long as “they” feel.... I guess he isn’t the only narcissist in the family.

Yea, I remember reading about that, and I suspect you're right about the loophole too.

You know - I wonder if he is making these kind of comments to give himself an out. As it appears now, it looks like unemployment is going to stay high, there is no end in sight for the housing slump, either inflation or high interest rates (or both!) are possible if not likely in the near future, his approval ratings are low and likely to get lower, energy prices are high and likely to move higher, and people are finding out what was in Obamacare and don't like it. What if he looks at all of this next fall, and finds that his fundraising is far behind what he expected, and suddenly decided not to run, "for his family's sake"?

He wouldn't be the first president to decide not to run for re-election in the face of overwhelming odds. LBJ did that when he saw that the Vietnam War was going to cost him the election no matter what he did. Of course, Obama is a narcissist, and may not be able to walk away, but statements like this could give him an opening if he did make that decision.
