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.
Heh, how many times will we hear him whine that this year?
Obama’s right if Mitt’s the nominee.
I agree. He SHOULD serve a second term.
Fort Leavenworth or Gitmo, his choice.
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 does. Served consecutively...
Well, if you’re counting on the voters, I think you will be very disappointed again.
May his second term come with meals on a tray and a stainless steel toilet.
Obviously he feels he hasn’t done enough damage to the country yet.
Maybe he deserves a second term as dogcatcher, but somehow I think he’d be a failure at that too.
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.
But WE don’t deserve a second term of him.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I agree. Where do you want to serve it? Alcatraz? Supermax?
I am not up on the latewst slang terms. Is “Second term” code for “a good swift kick in the @$$?”
