Third Term? Here’s What Obama Just Said About Staying Until 2021

Third Term? Here’s What Obama Just Said About Staying Until 2021

President Obama told 60 Minutes recently that he would win a third term if he was allowed to run again.

His 45% approval rating says otherwise…

Here’s the exchange:

Steve Kroft: A few months back, at a fundraiser, you made a point of saying that the first lady was very pleased that you can’t run again.

President Barack Obama: Yeah, she is.

Steve Kroft: Do you feel the same way?

President Barack Obama: You know, it’s interesting. I– you go into your last year and I think it’s bittersweet. On the one hand, I am very proud of what we’ve accomplished and it makes me think, I’d love to do some more. But by the time I’m finished, I think it will be time for me to go. Because there’s a reason why we considered George Washington one of our greatest presidents. He set a precedent, saying that when you occupy this seat, it is an extraordinary privilege, but the way our democracy is designed, no one person is indispensable. And ultimately you are a citizen. And once you finish with your service, you go back to being a citizen. And I– and I think that– I think having a fresh set of legs in this seat, I think having a fresh perspective, new personnel and new ideas and a new conversation with the American people about issues that may be different a year from now than they were when I started eight years ago, I think that’s all good for our democracy. I think it’s healthy.

Steve Kroft: Do you think if you ran again, could run again, and did run again, you would be elected?

President Barack Obama: Yes.

Steve Kroft: You do.

President Barack Obama: I do.

    • There never was any “120% voter turnout”, and how the hell do you come up with the idea that there’s something wrong with early voting?

  1. It’s not a fucking “democracy! It;s a constitutional republic; you “constitutional scholar”. a “democracy is where 51% can vote away the property and rights of the 49%! A.k.a.:” the Tyranny of the mob”.

    • Yes America is a REPUBLIC. To the republic for which it stands. One nation under GOD. Indivisible, with liberty & justice for all.

    • It’s actually not much more than a banana republic with a dictator in charge, supported by an appointed group of 9 who regularly do exactly that

  2. “President Obama told 60 Minutes recently that he would win a third term if he was allowed to run again.”

    What he means is that with world wide monetary support and with voter fraud and the use of federal agencies as political weapons here at home, he could steal another election as easily as he did the last two.

  3. That takes a Constitutional Amendment. Two-thirds majority vote in both chambers of congress (impossible these days) and ratification from 38 states (33 state legislatures are controlled by Republicans – thus, impossible).

  4. He lives in lala land! But considering the peoples vote is nothing more than an illusion those moron politicians up there would keep him.
