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.

Agreed.

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.

    Start packing your bags, obamster…….and leave the silverware alone. BTW, good riddance, you anti-American FOOL!!

  • bigkahuna

    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.

  • american patriot

    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.

  • Auntie Em

    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.

    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

    Then the DC Police will get called to evict an illegal squatter, and all the locks will have to be changed ASAP.

    Means nothing. Obama has all tese crap-weasels burrowing into the govt:Van Jones, and the EBA and the Julius Genachowski- ruiningthe internet. dodd and frank.
    and on.
    He can say anything .It is Ericksen psychology- using word and cadence and tone to brain wash the people. Check it out
    We better work on the Senate.

  • big L

  • One term can also mean president for life. It’s not like he hasn’t told us to our faces everything he intends to do. They didn’t redistribute trillions for nothing.

  • 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.

    ………………………………..
    Stall. Stall.
    Meanwhile, throw out bait to flush out the woobly he wants to purge out of his administration.

    Just speculating.

  • jorgen

    Good, since the stimulus is as dead as a dodo, you can resign now.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

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

    It’s no longer a question of if.

  • Interesting

    Thank God.
    Now that is change we ALL can believe in…
    both sides of the isle can finally get together behind a policy statement of Obama’s.
    United.. finally.

  • jorgen

    Bye, bye then. No need to empty your desk. We will send a box with the contents early next week.

  • Swifty

    His handlers told him before he was elected that he could promise anything and renege on any campaign promise he wanted to because no one remembers any of that anyway and all politicians do it, even if he promised to be transparent and not like other politicians that preceded him.

    And his handlers said, you also can enact any expensive socialistic programs you want because the economy always rebounds and takes care of the money gap with all of those new revenues to cover the expenses.

    Well, he went at least a trillion too far and he needs to pay somehow.

    One termer sounds great.

  • squeaky

    so are we headed for a billion dollar campaign to re-elect a mediocre president?

    sorry AMERICA didn’t destroy the jobs….ODUMBASS and his henchmen killed the jobs…PERIOD

  • squeaky

    the jobs zero can be credited with will be the government jobs created to control the masses.
    jobs that are often distributed more along the lines of party/philosophy.

  • Ruebacca

    If Kemp-Roth had failed Reagen would have been a one term president.
