Something about PO portrays him as a disinterested player whose only perceived talent is speaking empty words on que. He seems more of a figurehead than a leader or visionary. All the work is left to his unsavory minions, whose only job requirement is membership in a tight circle of a socio-political agenda driven cascade of related organizations. Everytime a beam of light hits one of the creepy crawlies they have to leave their post.

Figure he will be DNF as in 'did not finish' but then again Bill survived impeachment and disbarment so maybe PO will finish one term. The longer he stays the less esteem he will earn in history.
Well said.

With the political climate being what it currently is.....it's very difficult to see this POTUS last for 3 more years and he doesn't really care if he sees a second term anyway.
Demands for his resignation will likely, increase and all options to seek impeachment will be considered.
But....being that he's the first minority to hold the highest office....expect him to get plenty of breaks that other POTUS'S would not.

As a result, impeachment is not likely and a resignation.....very doubtful at this time. But that could easily change in a NY minute.
Otherwise....it's 3 more years of HELL and that's it.....for this one.

Good insight, rep to you. Yup, wouldn't be surprised if something like that is bundled in.

I originally agreed, but upon further thought, lets say it bottoms out at 12.5%, they scapecoat someone like Geithner and fire him but at the time of election it's 10%...Some folk would see that as an improvement and vote for him.

Right now I'm not seeing the opposition. I need to know who the opposition will be.

I refuse to support tax hiking Mike Huckabee. I would think once others knew that he was a tax hiker, his slight edge over other possible GOP candidates would slip.

Obama: I'd rather be a 'really good' one-termer than a 'mediocore' two-termer - The Oval: Tracking the Obama presidency


Obama: I'd rather be a 'really good' one-termer than a 'mediocore' two-termer




President Obama today, before the Los Angeles Lakers event.

President Obama told Diane Sawyer of ABC News today that he would continue pursuing an ambitious agenda because, "I'd rather be a really good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president."


Despite new problems with a health care bill and other political setbacks, Obama said he doesn't want to look back on his presidency and say, "All I was interested in was nurturing my own popularity."


IS THIS DUDE STILL TAKING A BACK-HANDED SLAP AT BUSH??
Sounds like it, to me.....

I agree. Palin is extremely polarizing, and she is permanently branded as stupid a la Dan Quayle due to those 2 unfortunate interviews.

Don't get me wrong. I like her and her principles. But she is unelectable to national office.

Even if there is a noticable shift in congress from the present Democratic majority to a more conservative and Republican majority, Obama will bear the burden of everything that goes wrong. Look at how Bush has taken the fall for everything in spite of the fact that there has been a Democratic majority enacting legislation even during much of his last term.

I am counting on the Republicans nominating Ms. Palin with some other RW fanatic.
