Skip to comments.Obama: My family would be fine with just 1 term
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.

Me too Barry. Me too!!
so would mine!
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.
Its a lot of work destroying a country thats been great for over 200 years
Obama is already bringing his family (wife, daughters) into the 2012 election?
This man has no class.
that would work for me!
A move from the White House to prison would be appropriate for the phony.
Listen to your family. They know you are “landslideable”.
As would most of the families in America.
Pray for America
I hope we make your family happy.
My family will pay for the U-Haul.
He can’t quit right now - he’s not finished redistributing yet.
Please Daddy Barry, QUIT NOW!!!
Do I hear half a term? Going once, going twice, sold...the the young man with the freaky ears!
GO NOW YOU A.......................&&**@@@@@HOLE.!!
May your family’s dreams come true!
So let it be said... so let it be done....
Indictment and prison would be awesome too ya think?
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?
The only question left is when will some other commiecrat really playing moderate like the Clinton’s felt pain; challenge Obama?
So would I Barack, so would I.
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.
I'm sure Michelle would have no beef with it.
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.
The idiot president will be fine but we the people, will be paying for his stupidity for years to come with obamacare, fags in the military etc...
I hate this a-hole kenyan.
Just ban teleprompters and we will all be free.
The media elected Obama, plain and simple.
Umm ... Sorry about that. Your comment triggered a Jimmy Carter flashback.
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.
I will admit...golfing is stressful.
Who cares what his family thinks? It kills me that those freeloading clowns are going to be on a taxpayer ride for the rest of their miserable, useless, pointless lives.
NO! I want him to serve two terms. The second one in JAIL!
“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.
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.
I volunteer to have him packed and ready in 20 minutes.
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.
Good, Barry, then it’s a deal!?;)
So... the daughters are conscious enough now to know that he’s a Communist destroying the country and that’s why he wants to stay?
