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."

Linda Burnett, 23, a resident of San Diego, was visiting her in-laws and while there went to a nearby supermarket to pick up some groceries. Later, her husband noticed her sitting in her car in the driveway with the windows rolled up and with her eyes closed, with both hands behind the back of her head. He became concerned and walked over to the car. He noticed that Linda’s eyes were now open and she looked very strange. He asked her if she was okay, and Linda replied that she had been shot in the back of the head and had been holding her brains in for over an hour.

The husband called the paramedics, who broke into the car because the doors were locked and Linda refused to remove her hands from her head.
When they finally got in, they found that Linda had a wad of bread dough on the back of her head. A Pillsbury biscuit canister had exploded from the heat, making a loud noise that sounded like a gunshot, and the wad of dough hit her in the back of her head. When she reached back to find out what it was, she felt the dough and thought it was her brains. She initially passed out, but quickly recovered.

Linda is blonde, a Democrat, and voted for Obama, but that could all be a coincidence.

The defective biscuit canister was analyzed, and it was determined to be George Bush’s fault.

Transcript: Diane Sawyer Interviews Obama Jan 2010
You know, I -- I would say that when I -- the one thing I'm clear about is that I'd rather be a really good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president. And I -- and I believe that.

That would make an appropriate greeting card to obozo.....

A picture on the front of the card showing obozo sitting on his throne after a “win”, and the inside of the card showing a photo of Ceausescu and his wife, as they are marched out to stand in front of a stone wall, and the rest you know.

Evil is as evil does.

I am, my husband - chemical engineer is, my daughter - hydrogeologist is, my mother is, my father was, my father in law was - petrochemical engineer US Armmy vet WWII, my sister - masters degree -is = = We are all Blondes. I am SO SICK of people saying that hair color has ANYTHING to do with intelligence!! That is just as bad as being Racist!!!!! My daughter is a scientist in the field of hydrogeology - i am sure you don’t know what that word means, look it up. She is a platinum blonde - natural, born that way, 29 years old. She is gorgeous and hates being a gorgeous blonde because of all the ugly comments about being blonde. A waitress was making fun of her one time because of her beautiful hair color - my daughter wanted to say - but is much too polite and mannerly to do so - she wanted to tell the rude waitress “I made a B in Differential Equations” I told her don’t bother, the waitress wouldn’t have a Clue what that means.

He’s a narcissist. I’d expect no less. Narcissists can’t deal with rejection.

My hair turns grey, then white then finally turns LOOSE!
I'm sure this is just some harmless stereotyping. Does wearing glasses mean you are extra smart? Happy Friday and wish you a great weekend.

errr... is there anything uglier in the human condition than “envy”?

One political ideology turns it into POWER.

I'm 45 and notice more grey hairs. Overall, I haven't noticed as many grey hairs until Obama was elected. I don't deny that my age has something to do with it but overall I think stress plays a huge part of it too.
