Obama: I won't run in 2016
The Hill ^ | June 26, 2014

1 .

At least one high-profile Democrat won't be challenging Hillary Clinton for the party's nomination in 2016.

President Obama was asked Thursday if he would ever consider running for a third presidential term during a town-hall meeting Thursday in Minnesota.

But the president said even if the 22nd Amendment — which limits presidents to two terms — didn't exist, he'd still be out of the running. "Not only the Constitution bars it, but Michelle bars it — and you can’t change Michelle’s mind," Obama quipped.

His implication is that “Michelle’s mind” is more immutable than the Constitution, and demands more obedience.

For what? We already have a dog catcher and anyway 0bama’s unqualified for the job. Not too likely he’d ever get elected to a job he isn’t qualified for, right?

As antichrist, Obama has much larger ambitions than merely being the American President for Life.

Taqqiya big time.

Who will make him leave?
This muslim punk shows daily disrespect for the laws of the land.
If he decided to stay, then what?

Imagine if the machine elects Hillary! and baraq tells her to go pound sand.

I don’t put any of this past the obungo regime.

I never realized the depths of psychosis that exists in the administration till I started following the white house on twitter. I realize its not Obama doing the posting but whoever we pay to do it are seriously out of touch.

Liberals are barely responding any more and the responses are overwhelmingly negative but they just keep rolling as if the world loved them.

“Obama: I won't run in 2016”

That is why he is doing all he can to destroy America while he is still in office.

Then in 2017 he can watch some poor sap try to clean up the mess.

Bam-Bam is a henpecked tyrant.

I had a boss like that once ... ran the lab like a swaggering, overbearing, tin-plated dictator with delusions of godhood.

He happened to be Indian ... I heard him on the phone with his wife (I believe), both speaking Hindi. I couldn’t understand the words, but I sure could understand the tone of voice. She RULED him, in the worst possible way, and he tried to take it out on the rest of us.

He doesn’t have to run.
All he has to do is stay.

I posited that some time back.

If the white-guilt liberals/honkies and the 98% Af-Ams decided to mount a write in campaign...

I don’t think the Roberts’ SCOTUS would invalidate the election.
I really don’t think they will. I think they would rule Am-22 invalid.

Gotta leave an 8 year gap. Otherwise MooseChelle will have a more difficult time getting the nomination in 2024.

After 8 yrs of Lizzie Warren, most Americans will refer to 2009-2016 as the “good old days”

How generous of the Current Occupant. He will not stand in the way of Herself, Madame Benghazi, the Cold & Joyless, in her pursuit of the lifetime dream, Empress - er - Presidentess of the territory once known as “the United States of America.”

His job shall have been completed. The legacy will be secure.

The Roman Caesars had greater job security. Most of them ended their careers by dying while in office. Rarely ever saw a resignation or getting term-limited out.

People died early in those days.

All he said was that he wasn't running again. That still leaves the possibility of him declaring himself Glorious leader and President for Life.

“Who was the plant who asked?”

That was my first thought as well. Bambi doesn’t say anything without a reason and I think he is already laying the groundwork. Hillary’s book tour is imploding and her numbers drop every time she opens her mouth...pretty soon there is going to be a flurry of (mostly made-up) articles about Obama’s continued popularity.

And after seeing the disgusting antics of the GOPe in Mississippi this past week, I don’t expect a word of protest out of them regarding that pesky Constitution and some obscure amendment preventing Obama from being sworn in as Emperor!

I disagree.
He knows it’s time to head out and make some serious dough.

He already has competing offers to be an MSNBC anchor or CEO of ISIS. And like BJ Clinton did for Chelsea, Baraq will have to make a grueling sacrifice and give one extra $250,000 speech to pay Malaria’s college tuition.
