President Obama: I deserve a second term By Erik Wasson - 02/05/12 04:57 PM ET
President Obama in a pre-Super Bowl interview aired on Sunday said that despite being unable to completely turn the economy around in three years, he still deserves to be re-elected.
I deserve a second term but we're not done, Obama told NBC's Matt Lauer in an interview broadcast from the White House.
Lauer noted that in a pre-Super Bowl interview three years ago, Obama had said "If I dont have this done in three years, then theres going to be a one-term proposition. Obama said that three years ago the economy was losing 750,000 jobs a month and the latest unemployment data from Friday shows. Now we are creating 250,000, he said.
Obama said that more needs to be done to boost manufacturing and improve worker skills.
The key right now is just making sure we aren't turning in a new direction that could throw that progress off, he said.
In the NBC interview, Obama reiterated that at this stage military options are not off the table in dealing with Iran's possible quest for a nuclear weapon.
Obama said that diplomacy is preferred because of the risks of military action.
Obviously any additional military activity in the Gulf is disruptive and has a big effect on us, he said, noting it could have a big effect on oil prices.
Obama said that he doesn't think Israel has decided whether it would attack Iran, but indicated his belief the U.S. would not be blind-sided.
We have closer military and intelligence consultations than we ever had, he said.
We’ll just have to see what the voters think.
What? He hasn’t even done his first term yet . . . in the pen.
He didn’t even deserve the first one.
It's probably in the HC communist takeover bill somewhere.
He needs a punch on the nose and a boot in the ***.
Obummer deserves a kick in the a$$ as he is thrown out of the WH in Nov.
This is almost as goofy as when the liberal “progressive” DemocRATS were saying that Americans “deserved” what happened to them on 09-11-01.
I think he does deserve a second term as well. See my tagline for details.
He wants a do-over. I say no!
He deserves a well placed boot.
Obama deserves a final cigaret.
He has been playing too much golf...he wants a mulligan.
He deserves justice for his knowingly committed acts of malice against the American people.
It is laughable that this fool thinks he deserves a second term.
There must be somewhere in the world that he hasn’t flown to yet, that he feels he should go.He hasn’t done much else, other than vacation, play golf and toss away money like he was Midas.
Everything he did get through needs to be rescinded.He has had a great time on our dime and now it’s time he packed his crap and went back to the Chicago toilet he came from.
He wasn’t qualified 3 years ago and he hasn’t learned a thing in that 3 years that would qualify him now.
