Obama Thinks 8 Years Is Long Enough

I happened to catch this little news item yesterday.

Click here: Clinton says Obama believes 8 years is enough

Call me skeptical, but I don't believe for a minute that Obama will be happy about leaving office. Whether that is in 2013 (LET'S HOPE!), or 2017. Either way a man like Obama, with an inflated ego and a power hungry disposition, will want to hold onto his presidency as long as possible.

All you have to do is look at his handling of Nicaragua. Or how he shoved Obamacare down our throats after Scott Brown's election in Massachusetts sent a clear, strong, anti-Obamacare message. Obama is man that wants power.

This part of the article is laughable:

She (Clinton) told a State Department forum that neither she nor Obama can understand leaders who refuse to transfer power and cling to office for 10, 20, 30 or 40 years.

I have no doubt that Obama would prefer to hold onto power as long as possible. After all, most ex-presidents retire from political office after their terms in office. He'd have no where else to go. I can't imagine Obama's ego allowing him to quietly ride off into the sunset like George W. Bush has done. Nor does Obama have the class to do something like that.

No, mark my words, if Obama is reelected, God forbid, there will be rumblings in 2016 of trying to amend the constitution to allow him to serve another term, or two. Just like liberals made noise about doing at the end of the Clinton years. Liberals love nothing more than to change the rules to their benefit.

And Obama is as liberal as they come.
