Q: Will Barack Obama be a one-term president?
A: Yes, he might last that long.
Obama, the one-term president - Roger Simon - POLITICO.com:
"Honest to goodness, the man just does not get it. He might be forced to pull a Palin and resign before his first term is over. He could go off and write his memoirs and build his presidential library. (Both would be half-size, of course.)
I am not saying Obama is not smart; he is as smart as a whip. I am just saying he does not understand what savvy first-term presidents need to understand:
You have to stay on message, follow the polls, listen to your advisers (who are writing the message and taking the polls) and realize that when it comes to doing what is right versus doing what is expedient, you do what is expedient so that you can get reelected and do what is right in the second term. If at all possible.
And it will help your legacy. And not endanger the election of others in your party. And not hurt the brand. Or upset people too much.

And what’s the point of doing the right thing if your party is going to lose seats because of it?I mean, ImamObama only made the remarks on Friday kissing the ^^^^^ of the Muslims he had over for dinner at the White House Ramadan shindig, rolls over Saturday to say "I won't talk about the wisdom of putting it there' and then Monday the white house twists it even more.
Nothing like being on every side of the issue. Maybe we should start calling him Rubick's Cube Barry. Michael Savage used this pic today on the Obama Bloomberg Hamas agreement on the Mosque no one but Islam wants.
It sure is apropos today although many of us thought it always was.
