Obama in 2009: If I can’t fix the economy in three years, you can call me former President Obama

by editor on June 16, 2011

Don’t you hate it when your own words come back to bite you in the butt? Back in Febuary 2009 President Obama told Today Show host Matt Lauer that he’d be a one-term president if he didn’t fix the economy in three years.

“I will be held accountable,” Obama said. “I’ve got four years and … A year form 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 … If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.”

The clock is running, Mr. President. Six months and counting.

It’s too late to turn it around by your allotted deadline, Mrs. President.

Like the kids say, “EPIC FAIL! PWND!”

Even when he is a former president you will get tired of hearing him rather quickly.

Like jimmy carter, he will spend the remainder of his life complaining, whining, crying, and, in addition, making racist innuendo about how misunderstood he was…

Actually, Jimmah isn’t even smart enough to know when he’s licked, stupid-wise, and I fully expect to get into “stupid ex-president tricks — the tag team version”, starting January 2013.

I just hope Jimmah can wield a folding chair by then.

Failure. The result of a liberal, left-wing education.

Why fix the economy when you might be able to fix the election?

Unfortunately for the rest of us, he was lying. Don’t forget to vote.

Except for those candid moments at fund raisers, when has Obama told the truth?

Shovel ready.
I’m a strong supporter of the Second Amendment.
By the end of my first term I will cut the deficit in half.
