Obama: Restoring America is an eight-year project
The Hill ^ | 17 March 2012 | Pete Kasperowicz

Posted on 03/18/2012 12:41:25 AM PDT by Flotsam_Jetsome

President Obama told a small but well-heeled gathering at an Atlanta fundraiser Friday night that restoring the U.S. economy and America's status in the world is an eight-year project, not a three-year project, and that he needs their help to win the White House again this November. "This is not a three-year project, this is an eight-year project," he said Friday night. "So I need you one more time. And we're confident we can get there, but we're going to need your help."

Obama gave credit to his administration for helping to bring about new job growth and stabilize the banking system. But he said he ran for the White House not just to restore the status quo, but to improve upon it.

I agree with him. And since we can’t get started until he’s gone, we need to vote him out this November.

Restoring America, Gosh, now he is even copying Newt Gingrich.

Everyone copies Newt and he is in third place.

The world is upside down..

"I agree with him. And since we can’t get started until he’s gone, we need to vote him out this November."

Considering that the COB is indicating that "President Barack Obama’s tax and spending policies will yield $6.4 trillion in deficits over the next decade, more than double the shortfall in CBO’s own fiscal baseline — even after taking credit for reduced war costs." then 8 years might be a bit optimistic, even presuming that he's defeated in November.

He’s building up deficits right now at the rate of $1.5 trillion per year, and it is projected we’ll see the debt grown $6.4 trillion ten years?

What do they think is going to happen after the first four years?

The only thing that sees this nation NOT realize something like $10 to $15 trillion dollars in additional debt over the next ten years, is if the December 21st, 2012 predictions come true.

Obama lies. Four more years of golf, vacations and doing nothing but pushing liberal agendas and harassing Israel.

Restoring America? In 2008 he said he was going to re-make it.

>> Obama: Restoring America is an eight-year project

Evidence that it’s not about restoration, but instead transformation. This jackass fully intends to destroy the Country we know and love.

"Above all: VOTE THIS YEAR."

I voted for Gingrich in the AZ primary, but I'm ABO all the way when the general election comes along. Anybody who can reasonably be trusted to not intentionally attempt to destroy the country is better than the dude currently (legitimately or not) 0ccupying the presidency.

If a patient comes into the ER with trauma sustained in a car crash, you don't fail to treat the injuries because they have cancer and may die of it anyway. First thing is to stop the bleeding. If you don't do that, treatment of any other ailments is impossible.

"Obama" and his cabal have some experience at re-making things. Or, just plain making things.

Too bad he won’t be around to see it finished, because the American people have had enough of his “hope and change”, they’ll see to it he ends up on the sidewalk banging drums and defecating all over himself like the rest of the OWS scum.

That in itself is a lie.  He never said he was going to restore America but "fundamentally transforming it".

Of course it is. I honestly think that this dude can't help but lie pretty much every time he opens his mouth. It's as natural as breathing to him.

Paying off the massive debt run up in Obama's first three years is going to take a lot more than eight years.

Did he use the word “restoring”? That is unsurpassed chutzpah. He’s trying to steal the language of the people who really are trying to restore America. We’ve never had a communist totalitarian government, so Oprompter can’t be “restoring” anything.

Yes, but allow me to state the obvious: To the Left, it’s not real money. These trillions upon trillions of dollars of debt are simply NOT REAL. It’s play money; bits and bytes in cyberspace. They’re numbers in news stories.

IOW....the Left is made up of drooling idiots. They couldn’t care less if we rack up tens of trillions of debt. All they care about is their idea of a Socialist “utopia”; their “feeeeeeeeeelings” and other such empty-headed crap.

Lets make sure that no one “re-niggs” in 2012, the only reason you are seeing this destruction of America is due to bozo beings a “magic negro”

Had he been normal, none of us would ever have heard of this POS.

Destroying America is an 8 year project.

Obama is off to a good star, but he needs another 4 years for our complete destruction.
