President Obama: I Want Second Term 'Badly'
By DEVIN DWYER (@devindwyer) LAS VEGAS, Nev., Jan. 26, 2012
President Barack Obama today signaled an aggressive tact for his early re-election campaign, critiquing his Republican opponents by name and insisting he's ready to "fight with every fiber of my being" for a second term.
"How much do you want it?" ABC News' Diane Sawyer asked Obama during an exclusive interview in Las Vegas.
"Badly," the president said, "because I think the country needs it."
"Whoever wins the Republican primary is going to be a standard bearer for a vision of the country that I don't think reflects who we are," Obama said.
"I'm going to fight as hard as I can with every fiber of my being to make sure that we continue on a path that I think will restore the American dream," he said.
Obama pushed back against what he called Republicans' "rhetorical flourishes," including Newt Gingrich's oft-repeated contention that Obama is the "food stamp president."
"First of all, I don't put people on food stamps," Obama 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. No. 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."

Romney and the RNC are conducting a scorched earth policy within the GOP to make sure that happens.
I want a second term ... badly ... but I can’t prove I’m eligible for office and I’m too skeered to go court that they will discover I’m a fraud.
A second term (God forbid!) would have to be a badlier term...
I guess it is like sex, do it once you want to do it again, screwing the public.
Well, it’s either win or go to prison.
I fear a second Obama term, we will be cooked, the only way to fix things will take much more than political will, we might have to back ourselves with muscle, knowhutimean?
Obama, wish in one hand and sh*t in the other and see which one fills up quicker!
He wants a second term to get everything that he wants done, when he had an absolute lock on the first two years of his first term, where he could have literally done everything he wanted to do.
“because I think the country needs it.”
America’s economic rapist doesn’t even declare that she “wanted it” but instead says that she “needs it”.
Ceaușescu believed his country needed him, too.
Fortunately, in this country, we have less violent ways of dispatching tyrants.
So many golf courses, so little time ...
Gee, this is the guy who said previously he didn’t care if he was a one term president. He always lies.
Yeah Obuggery sure you can have a second term! How about 100 to life in Leavenworth?
Buckle up, 2012 be one heck of a ride.
How badly does he want a third, fourth, or unlimited term?
At this point I want it for him too.
Rather than elect the other field of losers, the woodshedding this country needs to finally open their eyes after O’s second term would make me happier and probably in the long run do more to kill modern liberalism.
Bush’s fault again, I see.
