Obama: I never said this would be quick and easy, it’s gonna take some time

When Obama won the presidency, he set expectations. Now that he wants to get reelected, he’s changing those expectations, basically saying forget about that one term proposition stuff I said before.

We never forget:

  • Pyrran

    Gee, this is news. The President is a liar. Just add that to everything else he is.

  • Don

    Does Oama EVER tell the truth? What he said,” If I haven’t taken care of this in 3 1/2 years, I’ll be a one term president.” Not sure if he saying he is a pathological liar is fair, but it is pretty close.

  • odin147

    what is wrong with the dems, there is no acknowledgement of the damage they have caused, that is the scary part, they are doubling down on the policies that are causing the damage, they still want investments, these are not investments, investment is a reasonable expectation of gain after thorough mathematical research, what this govt. is doing is gambling in solar and wind energy, they are gambling with our future and the people are suffering for it, and there is no sense of regret. Are the dems insane ?, and they have the audacity to make fun of ideas they disagree with, and yet atleast 40% support such people.

    • conservative58

      ‘what is wrong with the dems…?’
      Drudge just posted headline of new Gallup poll showing Obama 49, Romney 45.
      What the hell? (Sorry for my language Scoop.)

      I would normally say these stupid sheeple deserve what they get for supporting Obama. However, their stupidity in blindly following this narcissistic dictator is going to impact ALL of us, including our children and future generations. How dare they destroy this great nation and reduce us to the likes of Greece!

      I am just amazed that people still worship this fool!

      • Orangeone

        It’s the takers that worship him and they outnumber those of us that work.

        • Suzyqpie

          We can not concede that they out numbers us yet. I agree it is close. But this is our last chance and orangeone you can not capitulate.

    If you like that video, you will love this one…

    I find his answer in the Clinton/Obama debate around the 8 minute mark to be especially revealing. It is clear he does not understand the American experiment. No sensible voter should vote for him based on that one answer.

    • conservative58

      Thanks for the link. Good video!

    • StrangernFiction

      If he doesn’t understand it is because he doesn’t care to understand. He’s an extremely wicked individual bent on controlling others. When he says in that video that “transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency” do you believe that was his desire? Of course not. He said that because his desire was to do the opposite.

  • The country can survive Obama, but it can’t survive with a population stupid enough to elect him twice.

    • Suzyqpie

      Hi Jay you are absolutely correct. Nov 6, I say Nov 7 on less educated sites, will determine if the LooterPlunder out number the WorkerSaver of America. That the tally is so close does not bode well for America long term. Imagine Americans expecting/demanding free stuff. There. Is. No. Free. Stuff.

You have not a single JOBS PLAN and HAVE NOTHING TO OFFER THE AMERICAN PEOPLE….This crap….Shovel Ready Jobs….Cut the Deficit in Half….5.4 Unemployment…ALL PROMISES YOU NEVER KEPT!! And you need more time….Our country cannot afford more time of you JERK!

    • PovrlaChasse

      The good news is that the “Please! I just need more time.” mantra is wearing thin with everyone, even with the Left. Even the hard Left is disappointed in him in very many ways.

      The bad news is, they will still vote for him. They have to because they are simply hardwired to vote Left. They can never to anything else because their fanaticism has caused them to lose free-will. A Leftist can only do two things, vote Liberal or not vote at all even if it is a passive aggressive thing such as, “Oh, I just couldn’t leave work today to vote for that guy.”Who cares anyway?”, “I just couldn’t find the time.”, etc. We can only hope/pray for the latter.

  • AbdulBX

    Can someone explain to me the Romney campaign strategy? After his convention, he made a total of 3 campaign stops then took a week long break. He made two stops yesterday and one today. During the Obama convention, he made no stops at all.

    Obama on the other hand has campaigned furiously. He has a total of 6 campaign stops scheduled in the 3 days after his convention. He campaigned all throughout the Republican National Convention.

    Obama beat McCain mainly due to early voting and basically out-campaigning him. Could we be seeing the same thing again? Or is there some great secret the Romney campaign has?

    • Orangeone

      And he’s out there telling people to vote early again. Romney better get off the couch and start campaigning like he is serious about the office of President and the security of this country.

    • wodiej

      I know Romney was taking a few days off and buffing up his debate skills with Rob Portman. I also know the campaign released a blizzard of ads in swing states. They are letting obama blow through his cash early. The Romney campaign will have the money advantage as the election gets closer.

      Uhm, obama did not beat McCain because of early voting and out-campaigning him. He won because he was the first black person to run for president, people were sick of Bush and we had a financial crisis a few months before the election. Before that happened, McCain and Palin WERE AHEAD.

      • Nukeman60

        That’s absolutely right. McCain lost that election, not Palin. She actually held him up as long as she could. He was an idiot with the talk of suspending his campaign to rush back to Congress for the vote. Then again, he was an idiot with most of his talk. Romney is nothing like McCain and the results are going to be a lot different.

      • AbdulBX

        I hope you are eight.

    • Nukeman60

      During the DNC was the best time for Romney to pause to buff up his debate skills. The media was all over the convention anyway, so why waste facetime down the road to practice the debates? Use the time that the media focuses on Obama. From now on out, expect him to hit the trail hard.

      • PhillyCon

        Exactly. There was no way Romney was getting media coverage during the DNC convention. They were too busy buying Obama knick knacks undercover.

        • 1mathteacher

          Yeah, and they need not have bothered with the cover. It’s not like they’re fooling anyone.

    • SineWaveII

      He’s preparing for the “debates” right now.

      “Obama on the other hand has campaigned furiously. He has a total of 6 campaign stops scheduled in the 3 days after his convention…”

    obama is doing his very best: His very best to ruin our great Nation!!!!
    obama has done a terrific job: He’s done a terrific job of setting this country on a course of destruction, which was his objective was from day one in the White House.

    We can’t afford to have him in the White House any longer, he needs to go back to Chicago and ACORN.

  • wodiej

    Times up obama. You not only have not improved a single thing, you have made things worse. After 4 years there should have been substantial progress-there isn’t any.

    • Suzyqpie

      Hi wodiej, Pres 0bama inherited a terrible economic circumstance. That’s the good news. The bad new is that he exacerbated every component. Unemployment, GDP, debt, deficit, Pres 0bama is a disaster. Whom ever follows Pres 0bama in 2013 or 2017 will have hit the mother lode of disaster catastrophe dystopian train wreck. Our economy is a train wreck, 0bamacaretax is a plane crashing into our train wreck you racist. Though I’d add that just for conditioning.

  • We’re still looking at a one term proposition here, gang. All we have to do is get everybody we know to vote on November 6 and we’ll be sending this guy back to Chicago. Amen to that. Can I get an “Amen” from the congregation, brothers and sisters?

    • Army_Pilot1967

      Amen and amen to obama and his crowd going back to Chicago in January 2013.

    • NYGino

      Amen, amen brother.

    To the 45% people who support the one, what is wrong with you, when will you realize the one’s policies are not working, how bad does it have to get before you realize that we cannot have economic growth with govt. intervening so much, when will you realize that spending is a tax, when will you realize that govt. does not invest, it gambles. They are gambling with our money. When will you realize we have no money to give the govt. for it’s damn investments. When will you realize obamacare destroyed the recovery, when will you realize you will lose your freedoms to the most dangerous panel in the future, the IPAB. When will you realize that choice and competition spurs more innovation than a govt. investment i.e spending ever will. Who is going to pay for all these investments, the stimulus had all kinds of investments and it did not stimulate anything. When will you realize the one is an ideologue who shows no regret for the damage he has caused. When will you realize that if you want the truth you need to go to original sources and stop watching the MSM. I could go on and on…and this election will tell me how many people have their eyes open and how many have them shut.

    • Suzyqpie

      “The private sector is doing fine,” ” We tried our way and it worked,” and the most
      egregious of all, “You didn’t build that, some body else made that happen,” who is our president, Who? Who are you? Pres 0bama takes no pride in the success of, we the people, none. We are not millionaires, billionaires, or corporate jet owners. But we can aspire to those achievements. Is there something wrong with that?

    • conservative58

      Well said odin!

  • poljunkie

    He hasn’t had enough time to run us into the ground yet.

  • SaraPFan

    He tells so many lies, he forgets what he’s told the American people.

    • NYGino

      Also, he just doesn’t care. The American people, to him, are nothing but an inconvenience on his march towards building another Marxist country, ours.

      • RosiesSeeingRed

        You’re right, NYGino. It’s an inconvenience to him that he has to bother selling himself to us again. He’s annoyed that he has to tell us, at his convention no less, that HE didn’t fail, but we worthless citizens did not get out there and create jobs! It’s our fault! So he wants us to save the country, but he also wants us to want his government programs like Obamacare and food stamps. He wants us dependent on the government while we’re busy creating jobs. Does that make any sense? Is this guy completely messed up or WHAT???

        He’s REALLY going to be inconvenienced in about 58 days when he has to figure out what to say in his concession speech. I usually flick the channel when I see his face, but that is one little speech I’ll be sure to stick around and watch.

    Trending headlines at RedState aren’t much better. And as far as the job report goes, the MSM have Obamas back with the 8.1% report. I do live in the United States of America, right? Is the America that was so priviledged to have President Ronald Wilson Reagan and President Theodore Roosevelt evolved into this? A lot of soul searching going on with this 21st Century Conservative this weekend.

      I just replied to Joe’s post below.

      God help us restore this great nation!

      • RosiesSeeingRed

        Conservative, yesterday I saw this comment from someone at another website, and I thought it was a good point, so I copied it and saved it. You might appreciate it:

        “Also- I’m tired of the pundits yammering on about how the right “just doesn’t ‘love’ Romney, and Obama has the edge because his voters ‘love’ him”. Ha. You know what’s more motivating than “love”? Hate. And while I personally like and respect Romney, I REALLY hate Obama. I hate all that he stands for and I hate that he was elected with utterly no credentials and he’s an arrogant empty suit. I would be just as enthusiastic to vote in 60 days if Obama was running against Santorum or Gingrich. Barry HAS to go. The media needs to stop underestimating the collective dislike of this man.”

        the lie like the rest of leftists

    “Of all the dispositions and habits, which lead to political prosperity, Religion and Morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men and Citizens. The mere Politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connexions with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked, Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths, which are the instruments of investigation in Courts of Justice? And let us with caution indulge the supposition, that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect, that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”
    – George Washington, 1796.

    2012 Democratic & Republican Parties; neither religious nor moral. Time to change the current government until we find one that protects our liberty. This is the moral courage we citizens must exercise.

  • GuessWhoFan

    He did say if things didn’t straighten out he’d be a one-term president. It’s the only time I ever agreed with him.


  • lainer51

    He sure DID say that – in 2008 he said he would fix EVERYTHING but the kitchen sink, and he couldnt fix that because he has never used a wrench or screwdriver in his life!!!!!!!!!!!

  • daisybud

    Where is the media? Nothing is reported about the corruption in this administration and about the lie after lie that Obama spits out everytime he moves his lips. I get angry everytime I fill up my car with gas. Yet the media has nothing to say. When GWB was president and gas prices increased, the media went ballistic. Where is the body count of soldiers who are being killed in Afghanistan everyday. During Bushes term there was a body count at the bottom corner of the TV everyday.

    It’s dangerous when a president owns the media the way Obama owns it. The press complained that he had not held a press conference in 2 months. Then when he reluctantly came to the podium, they all melted and we still didn’t get any answers about anything.

    Not to worry though, when Romney wins in November, the media will get busy doing their job.
