Flashback: Obama Says If Stimulus Fails “I’m a One-Term President” (Video)

Mission Accomplished.
Obama told the “Today” Show back in 2009 that if the $787 billion stimulus failed he would be a one-term president.

President Barack Obama acknowledged Monday that the fate of his re-election four years from now likely rests on the success of the proposed $825 billion stimulus package.

“A year from now, I think people are going to see that we’re starting to make some progress. But there’s still going to be some pain out there,” Obama predicted during an interview on NBC’s “Today Show.”

“If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.”

In acknowledging that his political fortune hinges on the state of the economy, Obama urged the country to be patient in waiting for the stimulus to take effect.

Experts agree that America destroyed 1,000,000 private sector jobs with the failed stimulus.

    I would forgive him ( and even praise him) if he resigned tomorrow and took Biden and Pelosi with him.

    If the republicans do not have a commercial a week starting in December rfocusing on his broken promises, lies, mistakes, gaffes, clueless acts & statements they are plain stupid.

    Things like…He promised to end Iraq,

    Promised to go over budget line by line and get rid of waste..He hasnt even proposed a budget in 2 years

    He promised to work with GOP, put negotiations on tv on Obamacare failure.

    etc etc etc etc

    And his staffers had better not remove all the (insert middle initial of his successor) keys from the WH keyboards as the Clinton staffers did to GW in 2001.

    I will be doing my level headed best to make sure his one-term prediction comes to reality.

    This person is actively evil for America.

    Will enough Americans worthy of the title realize this and vote.

    Ummm, hate to be a pedantic nit-picker, but America didn’t destroy 1M jobs, that was the sole province of the Dems.

    Specifically the triumvirate of Barry, Harry, and Nancy.

    If this nation will repent and turn from its evil ways, Obama will be a one-term president. He is very much a curse on America.

  • vamoose

    Obama is more interested in saving one job–his own– than in creating 5 million jobs. He threw in the towel on his first term when he started campaigning in February. America deserves better and Obama deserves to lose.

    When this scum finally leaves the White House, a top to bottom cleansing must be the first order of business. What with all the slime that he has let in, all the “CHE” posters need to be tore down, all the prayer rugs need to be thrown out and new carpeting installed. I bet the desk in the oval office has shoe prints all over it from this slob putting his feet up. One question? Why are all Dem presidents Rhodes Scholars, and all R presidents stupid cowboys or ex actors, and every one that runs for the office considered ignorant? This guy can’t tie his own shoe, and yet he’s got 160 I.Q.

  • kansas

    We talk like he will be out of office tomorrow. We still have 2 years of Obama and Harry Reid with his Democrat controlled Senate. Going down?

    The new administration should also apologize to the Brits and ask for the bust of Churchill back.

  • jainphx

    Furry==== That goes without saying, apologize on bended knee.

    “I shall not seek, and I will not accept, the nomination of my party for another term as your President…”

    Only honorable act ever committed by that particular individual.

    O’Blarney would do well to follow said example.

    one term is one too many

    I still think it’s going to be difficult to pry his hands off the front door knob at the WH.
