Obama: I Deserve a Second Term Even If the Economy Slumps
Of course he does. Because he’s Mr. Wonderful…
And he’s not through destroying the economy yet.
The New York Daily Mail reported:
PRESIDENT OBAMA said Sunday that he had earned another four years in the White House — even if the U.S. economy is still on the mend.
“I deserve a second term, but we’re not done,” the President told NBC’s Matt Lauer in a pre-Super Bowl interview.
Three years ago, and only 10 days into his presidency, Obama talked to Lauer about the state of the economy and said, “If I don’t have this done in three years, then it’s going to be a one-term proposition.”
When the “Today” show host reminded him of that statement and asked whether he should be reelected, Obama didn’t hesitate on Sunday.
“Look, when you and I sat down, we were losing 750,000 jobs a month,” the President said. “Now we’re creating 250,000. We created 3.7 million jobs over the last 23 months. We created the most jobs since 2005 . . . but we’re not finished.”
