President Obama: Im going to win reelection
By Amie Parnes - 01/26/12 07:07 PM ET
President Obama said in no-uncertain terms on Thursday that he will win his re-election campaign in November.
Asked by ABC Newss Diane Sawyer if he was going to win, Obama replied: Yes.
He also told Sawyer he would "fight with every fiber of my being" for a second term.
"How much do you want it?" Sawyer asked Obama in the interview.
"Badly," Obama said. "Because I think the country needs it."
Just a few months ago Obama described himself as an underdog in the 2012 election.
In another interview with ABC in November, Obama was asked if the odds were stacked against him in the presidential election. Absolutely, he replied.
Im used to being the underdog, Obama said.
Since then, Obama has seen his approval ratings improve a tick along with the economy. He won a major victory when the GOP House initially opposed an extension of a payroll tax cut, and he also may be benefitting from the GOP primary fight.
For the second day in a row on Wednesday, Obama named his Republican opponents who are in the midst of a battle in Florida.
He also refuted Newt Gingrich's sentiment that he is "the food stamp president.
"First of all, I don't put people on food stamps," he said. "People become eligible for food stamps. Second of all, the initial expansion of food-stamp eligibility happened under my Republican predecessor, not under me. Number 3, When you have a disastrous economic crash that results in 8 million people losing their jobs, more people are going to need more support from government."
Obama wouldn't say if the label "food stamp president" was laced with racism. But he did say Americans will have to decide in November "about who's trying to bring the country together and who's dividing it, who reflects the core values that helped create this country...and who is tapping into some of our worst instincts."
That makes him a coward. Is that racist?
Sounds like the Chicago fix is in. Get ready for a lot of voter fraud in November. Barry has promised it.
....and there it is
"Badly," Obama said. "Because I think the country needs to be destroyed and I'm just the guy to do it."
Did he really say that? Really?
Jackwagon said: "And to those of you who say that I am living in a fantasy land,
I say to you: no! Today I'm announcing myself king. I am the lord of all I survey.
And as for those bullying Republicans... off with their heads!
So now we know... 'CHANGE' = ZERO Job Growth ZERO Pipelines MORE Food Stamps MORE Spending MORE Debt MORE Golf MORE Taxes MORE Welfare MORE Abortions MORE Regulation MORE Government MORE Speeches MORE Money Printing MORE Vacations MORE Porkulus ('Recovery Summer' lost a net 329,000 jobs.) MORE Failure MORE Mumbo-jumbo LESS Coal LESS WOOD (Gibson Guitars Strung Up by Feds)
Countdown until Zer0 leaves Office: 360 days as of January 26, 2012.
“First of all, I don’t put people on food stamps,” he said. “People become eligible for food stamps.”
Because your policies have made it harder for people to find or keep employment, and easier to qualify for food stamps! You are the most effective food stamp president ever.
Indeed! Let's give this idiot 4 more years.
Did Sawyer ask him why he didn’t bother to appear in the Atlanta courtroom this morning after the judge had subpoenaed him?
...In a major step towards global centralization of election processes, the worlds dominant Internet voting company has purchased the USAs dominant election results reporting company.
When you view your local or state election results on the Internet, on portals which often appear to be owned by the county elections division, in over 525 US jurisdictions you are actually redirected to a private corporate site controlled by SOE software, which operates under the name ClarityElections.com.
IMO the last bthing this country needs is 4 more years of Bracko Bama.
Now today I just saw that his poll numbers are now up to 49%.
I have to say we don’t need Obama, but 49% of America deserves this POS.
If I send in an absentee, how do I know it is being counted?
How do we know they aren't throwing registered Repubican votes in the basket.
People are too lazy to wait in line? Did you see the lines in Iraq? And they walked MILES...
Seriously, what answer did Diane Sawyer expect to hear when she asked Obama, “Will you be re-elected?”
Of course he was going to say “YES!”
Did anyone think he was going to say, “I don’t have a snowballs chance in hell. I quadrupled the budget deficit, the actual unemployment rate is 16%.....we fudged the numbers....I’ve ruined the military; I’m the biggest ahole to ever set foot in the oval office. I’m a communist hell bent on destroying America, and I’m an Israel hating Muslim. Diane, a creep like me hasn’t got a prayer of being re-elected.”
Not to worry. Those of us at The Hill will do it all day!
Which country is that?
No way America should be made to suffer and listen to this with no action over and over.

Transcript: Diane Sawyer Interviews Obama Jan 2010
You know, I -- I would say that when I -- the one thing I'm clear about is that I'd rather be a really good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president. And I -- and I believe that.
The country may deserve it for being dumb enough to pick him the first time, but “need it”?! Sounds like what a rapist says before penetrating.
The TEA Party of Florida endorsed Newt Gingrich in the Florida presidential primary, saying the former House speaker has “articulated direct and serious steps designed to reduce spending, cut our deficits, pay down our national debt, and return liberty to our citizens in doing so.”
Reconstituted from the party whose candidates garnered 310,000 votes in 20 races in 2010, TEA is pursuing a broader outreach strategy this year.
Chairman John Long said that in addition to fielding its own slate of candidates, the party plans to endorse like-minded candidates from the major parties in other selected races.
“People ask us, ‘Who is the TEA Party?’ and we say, ‘You are,’” Long stated.
“When you speak out against out-of-control spending and officials that refuse to act responsibly with our money, you are the TEA Party.’”
The 310,000 votes received by TEA (Taxed Enough Already) candidates in 2010 was the third largest total of any party in the state.
But he did say Americans will have to decide in November “about who’s trying to bring the country together and who’s dividing it, who reflects the core values that helped create this country...and who is tapping into some of our worst instincts.”...Right! That’s why I’m for Newt.
Wait a minute, how are the troops supposed to vote if you want absentee balloting to stop? *rme*
I certainly don’t mean the soldiers and “real” absentees...cities/towns that allow anyone to file aa an absentee.
