"I'd rather be a really good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president,"

Barack Obama


I don't know about anyone else but I think he's being incredibly presumptuous assuming he is going to be a mediocre President. I guess he can aim high.

Um... when a president is "really good" during his first term, he generally gets a second term. Being a one-term president means you weren't good.

Karen, one of the best quotes of the week:

He will join Jimmy Carter as a really really horrible one term president.

Barak, wake up you spoiled, incompetent affirmative action baby. How did you think you could be anything but the worst president in America's history?

You have never worked to make the cut in school, employment, or politics--instead you took a leftist & affirmative action pass on work and study because success was due you.

Many people feel, with justification, that a president should have military service. I would add to that an earned education, and earned job in the private sector, and an eaened election. The majority of America would send you packing if our representatives and senators in Congress were not almost as bad as you.

But there is a way around all of this (unless your Acorn thugs stuff the ballot boxes), and that is to throw your lazy, incompontent, and ignorant behind out of the White House at the earliest election.

Shoprat, we may be longing for the days of Carter

LomaAlta, he does have to go down as the single most unqualified individual for the presidency ever. Even Carter was the Governor of Georgia and businessman/farmeer

Chuck, you just crack me UP!
Mediocre, indeed...we should BE so lucky :-)

MK said...

i'd really like obama to be a good one-term president too, but we both have different standards to measure 'good', so i'll settle for one-term.

With his qualifications for the presidency, every one of us is over qualified.
I think he is presuming a lot thinking he will be a "good" one term president. He is going to be a one term president period.

Chuck said...

Z, dare to dream

MK, we'll take what we can get

Gramma, I think it unlikely he would get re-elected. I have wondered if he will step aside like Johnson. I have this nagging suspicion he has his eye on the UN.
