Politico: Obama the one-term president

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0810/41134.html

Q: Will Barack Obama be a one-term president?

A: Yes, he might last that long.

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.

Recently, President Obama decided he had to weigh in on the controversy surrounding the proposed construction of a Muslim community center and mosque near ground zero in New York.

Politico is ....

"rationalizing" around the real problems. His handlers are not as pleased as they wish to be. He tows the Israeli line but, not as quickly or forcefully as they want. They wanted this Iran war months ago and he has not produced but, it's coming. Probably later this month.

"Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves." William Pitt in the House of Commons November 18, 1783
"I know major allies who fund them" Gen. Dempsey

"If

he lasts that long."

The writer wasn't suggesting a violent end but possibly an early resignation.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

yep

Sarah Palin style when she suddenly resigned as a Governor of Alaska.

I am thinking once a stock market collapse happens they just might make him a scapegoat...

Thanks for a bump.
