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.

Sorry 'Bammy, your first term was badly.

A second term (God forbid!) would have to be a badlier term...

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”.

FUBO!

"Badly," the president said, "because I think the country needs it."

Ceaușescu believed his country needed him, too.

Fortunately, in this country, we have less violent ways of dispatching tyrants.

And just last summer, the Emperor with No Clothes, claimed he did not care how long his term was. He claimed he was governing with no consideration for his length of term. In other words, it did not matter. Now, it is all that matters to him.

Buckle up, 2012 be one heck of a ride.

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.

Hasn’t the damage he’s caused been enough for him? Or does he want four more years to finish this nation off?

The Obozo longs for the day to say it was he who drove the stake through America's heart. That, I surmise, is what he means when says he needs four more years to finish what he started.

Are we still assuming that the Zer0 isn’t going to whip up some crisis and cancel the election? (Assuming the nominee isn’t Mittens - in which case he’ll probably just offer him Veep).

NOT WHO WE ARE - who you want and intend for us to be, you clown.

He really does think he’s God’s gift to humanity, doesn’t he? Too bad we’re not all fooled... Good for the country that we’re not.

“”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.””

That’s how I felt voting in CA when Gray Davis ran for governor. “”The voters in CA will learn something valuable if they him in that office.”” Look how well that turned out...Sure he was turned out but who replaced him and who’s the governor now? Same old, Same old!! They will NEVER, NEVER DISAPPEAR with their socialistic ideas.

IF he loses......this man and his handlers/owners in the shadows are going to scare me to death between November 6, 2012 and Innauguration Day................

my son was on the Texas A & M National Championship Drill team and they had a saying when one of the guys was lagging...............it was “you gotta grab some sack man!”..............hopefully our military leaders will too during that lame duck period.............

I also remember having in drilled into my head back in 1967 when I joined the USNR that my duty WAS NOT to obey ALL orders it was instead to obey ALL LAWFUL orders..........!

Glad that I’ve trained myself to scan the thread
before posting because I was thinking along the same
line and I hate to step on another’s good work.
Its’ like when you say something funny in a group
and another repeats it, stealing your thunder.
Just hate that.

Correct. If the GOP was interested in winning Newt would still be on a cruise, Romney getting his hair did, and winner would be heralded by the party. Instead, the front running buffoons spend more time in the gutter, than on a coherent plan, and the Left and the MSM just laugh at us. I’m disgusted by the lot of them. Now I’ll I sit back and wait for the Newtrons to attack, but I don’t care, I’m sick of settling for a**holes..
