President Obama: “I deserve a second term”

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 don’t have this done in three years, then there’s 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.

This is almost as goofy as when the liberal “progressive” DemocRATS were saying that Americans “deserved” what happened to them on 09-11-01.

Very characteristic of Odouchebag’s entire existence: he “deserves” everything he has, just on the basis of who he is. Note that he really has not earned anything he has, like most of us have done through our own hard work and God-given abilities. Obama and those like him have the victim mentality, they just deserve things because, well, they have them coming.

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Everything he did get through needs to be rescinded.He has had a great time on our dime and now it’s time he packed his crap and went back to the Chicago toilet he came from.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.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of handout-loving parasites and socialists that want him to have a second term so they can continue to receive government benefits. They will be aided and abetted by the likes of that bald-headed moron Lauer.

he deserves a second term just like a robber, after successfully stealing a billion dollars from a bank, deserves the chance to go to that same bank and steal another billion.

You would never hear a Republican President saying that they "deserved" anything.

It is up to the voters to determine whether a politician "deserves" another term, unless one has an entitlement mentality, that is.

Most of the horror of what the Marxist has accomplished will be felt and seen by Americans, in full force, in five to ten years into the future.

There is soooo much Americans don’t understand and realize right now, of his “progress.” It is like anti-freedom, anti-American time bombs of poverty and oppression set into the future. Rinos will never repeal any of it, either. They will just offer to “manage” hell better.

If those helping Romney get the nomination are successful, Obama WILL get a second term.

Well, sir at the rate of which the lemmings are going for Romney (with your allies in the media), you are pretty much set for another term. Don't move the boxes, I guess.

President Obama: “I deserve a second term”

Why?

Oh, I know... so you can continue your winning ways:

For a vapid, narssistic, empty suit, you're doing swell. I can't wait to vote in November.
