Barack Hussein Obama Says,”I’d Rather be a Really Good One-Term President than a Mediocre Two-Term President”



The arrogance and denial of Barack Hussein Obama is among the worst this country has ever seen in the White House. Barack Obama is on the verge of becoming one of the worst Presidents America has ever had the misfortune to suffer through, yet he has the audacity of dope to say the following:

“I’d rather be a really good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president,” he told ABC’s “World News” anchor Diane Sawyer in an exclusive interview today.

Obama sat down with Sawyer two days before he will deliver a State of the Union speech to a joint session of Congress, and he acknowledged the political setbacks of his first year in office.

There is one lucid moment from this interview. Barack Obama already has it in his mind that he is a one termer.

Because all great one term Presidents have 10% unemployment, record level federal deficits and put an issue like health care and the government control of Americans health care ahead of jobs. Supposedly, Obama is now going to talk JOBS at his State of the Union speech. Funny, it took Obama and the Democrats being handed their hats in Massachusetts for Obama to focus on jobs? So are we supposed to assume that if Democrats had won Massachusetts that Obama would have continued to ignore and go against WE THE PEOPLE?

NEWS FLASH to the delusional Obamamessiah, name me a really good one term President that did not meet an unfortunate end that ended their Presidency sooner than expected? The fact that a President does not get elected for a second term means that he is a failure in their first term. That is except in the mind of Barack Obama.

As Flopping Aces reminds us, there is a reason why there was a recent poll that stated that more Americans would vote for anyone else except Barack Obama in 2012.

Obama was elected on the campaign promise that he would change Washington politics. Of course that did not mean by substituting Chicago-style politics in their place. In less than one year America has so rejected Obama’s liberal agenda in making such statements the the governor elections in Virginia, New Jersey and the most recent election of Scott Brown, Senator-elect from blue, blue Massachusetts.

Of course what is most telling about Obama’s comments are that he is actually saying them. One year into his Presidency and he is already bring up into the conscience of the public that he will be a One Term President. As the Astute Blogger astutely says, LETS HELP HIM!

Hmm gee Barack, how many B+ Presidents are one term Presidents?

Barack Obama has been a colossal failure who has done nothing but push his liberal and socialist agenda while ignoring the will of the people. The People wanted change, NOT MARXISM!

When you are the most polarizing first year President ever, when you squander the opportunity and high approval ratings from Republicans and Independents,  when you abjectly refuse to listen to the people and push a socialist agenda because you had overwhelming majorities in both the Senate and the House … you do not deserve to be a two term President.

Just as your fellow Democrats in the House and Senate are dropping like flies due to their votes on the $787 billion stimulus and Obamacare, so will you in 2012.

Really good one-term president, indeed. More like a less than mediocre one term president.

      maybe he should be thinking half term.

    3. Valerie on January 26th, 2010 11:19 am

      His statement is completely laughable. What a moronic thing to say. Does he not realize that in that statement he is absolutely admitting to what a horrible job he is doing as President?!?

    4. Mary on January 26th, 2010 11:58 am

      Maybe if we put this story on his teleprompter and he reads it , it may sink in that he is a lousy President,and what a terrible job he is doing.

    5. Scared Monkeys on January 26th, 2010 1:52 pm

      If you were doing “great” in your first term wouldn’t it follow that reelection was likely? I saw that last night on the news and laughed.

    6. super dave on January 26th, 2010 2:31 pm

      so now he has himself a sign made Middle Class Task Force. i wonder how many more government jobs this will create in the already bloated obama
      friends administration ?
      does this mean that we’ll get another $8.25 this year too ? double the tax credits for kids is good but what about the middle class that is supporting their grown children because the government can’t make good a promise to boost the job market because they are so intent on ramming the worthless healthcare down our throats ?

    7. NewGirlBoston on January 26th, 2010 4:54 pm

      Love it ! Yes, Obama—Keep opening your mouth with these Joe Biden-like gaffes.

      America is watching….Congress rejected Obama’s plan to create commission on the Federal Defecit today in the headlines as well. Excellent.

      At the end of Barack Obama’s worst week since taking power a year ago, the US president’s fortunes look set only to deteriorate over the coming days. Following the shock defeat of the Democratic candidate in Massachusetts on Tuesday, a move that deprived the president of his 60-seat super-majority in the Senate and left his legislative agenda in tatters, Mr Obama has just four days to reboot the system.

      The US president had originally delayed next week’s State of the Union address to Congress in the hope he would get his signature healthcare reform bill enacted in time. That prospect, already waning, was killed dead by the voters in Massachusetts. A growing number of Democrats believe the nine-month effort could collapse altogether.

      The death of the healthcare effort would rob Mr Obama of what he had hoped would be the centrepiece of his first State of the Union message. “It now looks extremely difficult, if not impossible, to get anything resembling a broad healthcare bill out of Congress,” said Scott Lilley, a senior fellow at the liberal Centre for American Progress, the think-tank that is closest to the White House. “In his State of the Union, Obama has to slim down his ambitions. It should be short and simple and focus on jobs.”

      However, even a more modest agenda looks tough for Mr Obama now. Believing their strategy of total opposition was vindicated by the voters last Tuesday, Republicans are in even less of a mood to co-operate with Democrats than before. The difference is that with 41 seats in the Senate they are in a position to block almost anything Mr Obama proposes – including the Wall Street regulatory measures he announced on Thursday.

      “Obama has to decide whether he wants to be a transformational president, which looks optimistic at this stage, or merely an effective president,” says Bruce Josten, head of government affairs at the US Chamber of Commerce, which has spent tens of millions of dollars opposing healthcare. “My advice would be that he pick up the phone and ask for Bill Clinton’s advice on how to recover from a situation like this.”

      Nor can Mr Obama rely on unity within his own party, which has been in disarray, if not panic, since Tuesday. For example, Mr Obama’s more populist tack on Wall Street re-regulation failed to attract endorsement from Chris Dodd, chairman of the Senate banking committee, even though he was present when Mr Obama made the announcement.

      Others, such as Tim Johnson, Democratic senator for South Dakota and a senior member of the banking committee, were already opposed to elements of Mr Obama’s regulatory proposals including the plan to establish a consumer financial protection agency.

      Worse, most people do not think Mr Obama can even command unity within his own administration on the Wall Street proposals amid growing speculation about whether Tim Geithner, the Treasury secretary, can survive in his job. Mr Geithner was conspicuously sidelined during Thursday’s announcement by the presence of Paul Volcker, the former Federal Reserve chairman, who lent his name to the push to rein in Wall Street banks.

      The speculation about Mr Geithner is only likely to grow. “The Obama proposals were clearly politically motivated and came from the White House not the Treasury,” says a Democratic adviser to the administration, who withheld his name.

      Finally, there is increasingly open Democratic disaffection about the way Mr Obama is managing relations with Capitol Hill. Many believe that Rahm Emanuel, Mr Obama’s aggressive chief of staff, served Mr Obama badly by persuading the president that his election was a transformational moment in US politics that gave him the opportunity to push through long-cherished Democratic goals, such as healthcare reform.

      In fact, exit polls from Mr Obama’s election showed that almost two-thirds of the voters cited the economy as their chief concern, with fewer than one in 10 mentioning healthcare. Mr Emanuel is also perceived to have mishandled the day-to-day logistics of getting healthcare through Congress.

      By leaving the scripting of the details of the healthcare bill to Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill, the White House openly courted the risk of chaos. Tellingly, in his victory speech in Boston on Tuesday, Scott Brown, the new Republican senator, cited voter disdain for the sight of lots of “old men” on Capitol Hill bickering over healthcare reform at a time when their priority was jobs.

      “I haven’t seen Rahm Emanuel except on television,” Jim Pascrell, a Democratic lawmaker from New Jersey, told Politico, the news website, on Friday. “We used to see him a lot; I’d like him to come out from behind his desk and meet with the common folk.”

      In short, Mr Obama’s nightmare January could easily slip into a nightmare February. “Unless and until the president changes the way his White House, works, things are going to continue to go badly for him,” says the head of a Democratic think-tank. “Heads still have to roll.”

      If smart, he’d have kept his mouth shut without that teleprompter. Didn’t he realize when declaring he’d rather be a one-termer than a mediocre two-termer he was saying he’d rather lose the White House to the Republicans than continue to be a screwup? Right?

    14. E.Rutledge on January 27th, 2010 6:03 am

      #13: …Right?


      Sorry. Got to raise a finger for reading ability and logic here.

      #Susan: the dupes have been erased, but there’s still one too many.

      “We the people”. Again. Wrong.

    15. Scared Monkeys on January 27th, 2010 7:44 am

      Not only will The One be One and Done …

      Barack Hussein Obama will have gone down as one of the worst Presidents in the post WWII era a kin to Jimmy Carter.

      This means that after he is thrown out of office in a landslide that no one will want to hear from him.

      Obama better learn how to use a hammer and saw to build homes as Habitat for Humanity is in his future. Politics is not.


    16. super dave on January 27th, 2010 8:08 am

      I sincerely hope Americans are not fooled by the snake when he gives another speech(written by someone else & read from a teleprompter, not from the heart). to actually think he could bring Americans out of the ditch that he dug for them is unrealistic.
      he has wasted the stimulus money on pork projects and friends, whitehouse parties, dates on our dime,there’s nothing left. keep obama on his heels and backing up. Robert Gibbs lies for him at this very moment.

    17. Michelle on January 27th, 2010 10:34 am

      The problem is, he’s not even a mediocre one term President. He’s just a one term failure. Does the name Jimmy Carter ring a bell?

    18. ayfit on January 27th, 2010 2:34 pm

      Obama, the worst??? [maybe] Let’s not forget WMD George. Hell WMD George got obama elected. Now a Republican wins the senate seat in Mass. See a cycle here??? Will we ever have a good president?

    19. super dave on January 27th, 2010 2:59 pm

      so the massa is gonna have soldiers, moms, and heroes on STOU message tonight. i didn’t see where he was going to have one single down in the trenches citizen that is not making their payments and struggling to feed their kids and struggling to hold on to jobs.

    20. St SAtephen on January 27th, 2010 3:45 pm

      he made his choice when he forsaken the solid citizens of Main street in favor of the abject failures of Wall St and provided them more money in bonuses than we contributed to Haiti(not that it is relevant but it is amusing to count the dollars in bonuses for bankrupting their companies.)…

      …and that was just for starters.

      he ignored the jobless and the economy in favor of insurance companies being safe from anti-trust laws that every other business must abide by. Then he mandates that all must enlist in an insurance company under penalty of law, a mandate without choice. What a plum for insurance companies nationwide.

      There are soooo many more examples but those two lead the way to the elections of this year and 2012, and not a second too soon, it appears.

    21. St Stephen on January 27th, 2010 3:45 pm

      Of course that should be St Stephen THAT JUST POSTED THE MESSAGE, mea culpa!

    22. St Stephen on January 27th, 2010 3:47 pm

      Did that message go through?

    23. super dave on January 27th, 2010 8:01 pm

      obama is still hell bent on deathcare. i wonder exactly who he owes this favor to ? who is calling in their marker on this bill ? what is he hiding behind closed doors up nancy’s dress ?
      he owes somebody bigtime and i think they are getting fed up with his boyish play as president and are coming calling. maybe a union leg breaker ?
      all the people out of work and he wants to keep jabbering about healthcare. he has not learned his lesson.

      [...] Hillary Clinton says that one term is enough as Secretary of State. That’s interesting, because Obama thinks the same as he being President. [...]

      It does not matter what he says, No one is giving him time enough to fix what George got all “F” up. Leave him alone!!!!

      Rethuglican’t filth. When the country is under Rethuglicants the deficit explodes, and endless wars start, and dumb ass friggin RETARDS like yourselves keep voting against your own bests interests. I think I’ll stay in Denmark and enjoy my cheap SOCIALIZED healthcare. If you morons want to take back the mess that your Rethuglicants made, then you can have it!!!!

    27. Trudy McCall on February 18th, 2010 4:54 pm

      This is so strange to me when that last person was in office for 8 long years, the reason all of this is happening now, no one say anything. Now that we have a new president in the office he gets the blame for all of this that is happening. I want him to only be a one term president, and hope that you get another president like the one that was in office for that 8 years, because that is what you really deserve. When you are on the streets with that cup begging for food, after once again he has taken everything that is not nailed down. lol

    28. Karen on February 18th, 2010 7:20 pm

      Wow…what a delisuional bunch. Are you all so narrow-sighted that you don’t realize that Bush politics brought on all this mess? Really?

    29. wendy on August 26th, 2010 4:48 pm

      Bill Clinton, the Free Trade Agreement, selling out to China, that was a major part of our economy going downhill, not the Republicans, sure they gave some tax breaks, but Obama doesn’t even deserve the Title President, he has backtracked on about everything. From many videos on he says “my muslim faith”, quotes the Koran, and his people say it’s false he’s a Christian, doesn’t salute, or pledge alleg. to the flag in another video while everyone else does in the video, he also says how he visited all 57 ? 58? states except he had a few to go (60) states, that’s when he was running for President. Of course I have not seen what every president has done in office, but he has to be the worst, most arrog. one taking 48 days of vacation so far in office, wife taking a revenge vacation because of being mad at Oprah, spending time in 5-star hotel, using $300,000 worth of jet fuel or more and security, tax payer dollars, the rest she used their personal money to pay for it. He is so delusional, I saw this a long time ago before he was elected, I wish we had Bush back at least he was funny along with all the great impersonations from Dana Carvey and other comedy like SNL. Obama is boring. Can’t wait til next election.

      [...] this the same president who said, “I’d Rather be a Really Good One-Term President than a Mediocre Two-Term President?” How about a terrible one term President Mr. President? Obama [...]
