Obama: It takes more than 1 term to fix economy
cbs ^ | 9/22/2012 | ap

Posted on 09/22/2012 5:51:48 PM PDT by tobyhill

President Barack Obama says change takes more than one term in the White House, more than one president and more than one party.

His message to thousands of cheering supporters at a rally in Milwaukee was a rebuke to rival Mitt Romney, who claims Obama's policies have failed to turn the economy around.

Odd Ronald Reagan inherited a worse mess and he fixed in in 1 term.

Then why did he say if he couldn't fix it he would be a one term president? I am so sick of this bag of wind he has got to go. Please everyone GO VOTE Romney/Ryan and get rid of this flim flam man.

Still waiting for Romney to run an ad showing Hussein Obama saying he’d quit after one term if he was shown to be an idiot.

Perhaps it does take more than 3 years to undo 70 years of crap, but Obama has proven that it only takes 18 months to send the economy into a death spiral.

“If I don’t have this thing turned around in 3 years, it’s a one term proposition.” - Barack Hussein Obama, 2009.

You never see this quote in the media reports. If it were a GOP prez, it’d be hung around his neck like “Mission Accomplished” was to Bush.

When he mutters this crap, be ready with the quote of HIS.

“That’s exactly right. And you know, a year from now I think people are going to see that we’re starting to make some progress. But there’s still going to be some pain out there. If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.”

If his policies had any chance to actually fix the economy at all, we would have seen some signs of improvement over the past 3 1/2 years. We haven't.

True sir, but it only took you “one” term to make the economy much worse, and nothing you have done has turned things around.

This man advocates "PERSISTENT EXPERIMENTATION" on the economy so HOW WOULD HE KNOW?

Maybe it'll take THREE TERMS.

OR FOUR, like FDR.

He hasn't a CLUE.

He is right. After the damage he has done, it is going to take Romney and Ryan two terms just to get the damned bus back on the road.

It only took Obama 4 years to add 6 trillion in debt, more debt than had accumulated for the first 200 years of the Republic.Next to that feat fixing the economy in 4 years should have been easy.

This is a total lie. Zer0 does not want to fix the economy, he wants to destroy it. And, he knows exactly how to do it: Keynesian Economics. The groundwork was established by FDR.

That would be a powerful ad. There is a lot of good material to make ads with, using his own words. Maybe the GOPer strategists and consultants fear that it would make the moderates and the liberal media very unhappy.

That's not what you said when you knew what you were getting into the first time around, but then made it all worse.

No thanks, we don't need any more of your 'fixing'.

Take your one term proposition with you and GET OUT.

It will take four consecutive terms of a Godly, conservative leader to fix the mess the people who put Obama up for President have made. I am wondering how many years it’s going to take to track all of them down and bring them to justice.

It would only take 10 minutes with the right policy mix effective immediately:
stable money
low tax rates
no red tape
free trade

....On second thought, maybe only 5 minutes

The transcript looks real enough as to form,grade delineations as to grades and subjects but can it be authentically the real thing. I ask this as it (the transcript) explicitly places Obama’s birth place as Mombasa, Kenya. If this is authentic it is the end of Obama’s claim to being a born in the USA. A lot of people need to act on this presentation as a critical piece of information immediately. Another very interesting piece of the document is that it was issued to William Ayers who has long been noted as Obama’s Harvard enabler. WOW!

It didn’t take Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, Reagan, Clinton or Bush 43 more than one term to fix what they inherited.

The GOP should be running 30 second ads on this w a bipartisan approach noted above. Obama is simply admitting that he is a failure.

Simple story to say that Obama inherited a mess and then his asinine policies made everything worse, because he despises and attacks every institution that would get the economy back on its feet. And concurrently ramps up a regulatory nightmare that crushes job creation. This is an easy sell and connects a lot of dots.

I’m surprised Obama served up such an easy softball.

Which brings me to my concern. Not enough people are donating money to Romney or to the pro-romney Super Pacs. We should have heavy saturation by now in many more Blue states; move the needle and thus force Obama to react. In sort, DRAIN OBAMA DRY NOW, becuz he doesn’t have, and can’t raise, the money necessary to keep up.

If the MSM squawks about “buying an election,” give them the finger for the corrupt and noxious handmaidens they’ve been for the last 4 years.

That the Super Pacs (Restore our future, American Crossroads) are not investing heavily means that they don’t have sufficient funds. People with real money need to start writing checks.

And yes, I’ve given Romney 11 separate donations - I am just middle class.

Every $10 or $25 or $50 gift helps.

Please come in and sit down Mr. Obama. I want to talk to you about your grade for this term. I’ve given you an “F”. I know that you’ve asked for an “Incomplete”, but I don’t see how I can do that. You seemed to have plenty of time to go golfing and to beg for money. And as for blaming Mr. Bush for your poor performance, well, it is your grade, isn’t it? I warned you that you hadn’t taken the required prerequisite classes for this class. You appeared to stumble around in a daze this term. Perhaps if you had spent less time in your youth with Choom, and more time in your room.......studying, you wouldn’t be failing so miserably. No, I cannot pass you and allow you to take President 102. I think that you should look at a course that is more in line with your capabilities. I’ve spoken to some colleagues in the Animal Husbandry Department and they feel that there is a place there for you. Thy’re used to dealing with bullshit. Please ask Hillary Clinton to step in here on your way out.

Didn’t he say it took more than one term and also more than one party? His way of blaming the Republicans, and also saying that they must do everything he wants, or the fail that will come with another term for him, will be their fault. He already has the blame game down. Of course if the Republicans did do everything he wanted and then it would fail, he would find another reason to blame them. Waa, waa, waa, boo hoo, boo hoo, boo hoo, poor, poor little Barack Obama.

He has done a pretty damn good job on it the first time. If he is re-elected for a second term he will solve the obeseity problem foe the people who live in the United States. I deliberately omitted using the term “Americans” because no “American” voted for the bastard in 2008 nor will they in 2012.
