Obama feels that he deserves a second term...I thought the choice wording in the interview was interesting to say the least. Personally I don't think its for him to say what he deserves and does not deserve, as thats for us to decide by giving him a 2nd term.



“I deserve a second term, but we’re not done,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with NBC. “We’ve made progress, and the thing right now is to just make sure we don’t starting turning in a new direction that could throw that progress off.”

Judging by the current economic numbers....yes he does deserve a second term.

If these hold steady and don't tank in the summer...he has a very good chance of securing that second term.

And you don't see a problem with political BS being spewed on the biggest sport event of the year? Hell, bet he didn't even have to pay for the coverage.

The world does not come to a halt simply because some people, for a few hours, will be watching a football game.

He deserves to be kicked out of office for running this country into the ground anyone who says they are better off now than they were 3 years ago yeah right.

15 trillion dollar debt spending over 5 trillion dollars,the credit downgrade waging mass murder on a global scale and then fast and furious and gunwalker and then bailing out his donars with sweet government contracts like solyndra.

What he deserves what he has earned is my contempt.

No...why would that be a problem?

Hasn't most recent Presidents been interviewed during the Super Bowl?

No, the world spews this crap 365 days a year. 366 this year. Can we have one event not tarnished by this crap? One day. Then you all can go back to your petty squabbling.

Yes and talked about football. Not a mocked up campaign commercial. That's exactly what this was.

I wouldn't have even known that this took place during or before the Super Bowl unless you pointed it out.

Does it really bother you that much?

Tell that to the 75 million out of work and under employed

Tell that to the millions who have lost their jobs and their homes.

Tell that to the millions who owe more on their homes than they are worth.

Tell that to people who are paying over $5 a gallon to put gas in their cars.

I have less money now than i did.

Are people in this thread still blaming Obama for the problems Bush inherited and exacerbated or is this satire going so far above my head all I see are chemtrails spelling out loopy?


If the Republicans had Eight Years to 'fix' Clinton's mistakes, then they made mistakes of their own, which Bush had eight years to do. I'm not voting for Obama
But he would deserve the same treatment Bush and Clinton got when they were double-term presidents. Maybe you disagree, perhaps 4 years was enough Obama, but I want to recognize Obama didn't make these problems, he inherited them and Bush was exacerbating them, escalated them to new heights and handed them off to the other party to look bad.

I wonder if America is going to go back to single-term presidents for a while, watch them flounder in the political arena of not having enough time to fix any problems in an ideologically sound manner, then kick them out only to take two steps back for every one step they take.

I mean, if you have a two term limit on Presidency, why not just make it one eight term and make it so you can only be president once?

Yes it does. The Superbowl is an event. People that don't even follow football tune into this game. It needn't be tarnished by an OBVIOUS political promotion. If they had stuck to football I wouldn't have a problem. This was the network giving Obama face time to promote himself.

Outkast is right. I had no idea this was going on until ATS members got indignant about it. I fail to see where your anger towards this comes from.

From my limited research...it is no different than any other Presidential interview during a Super Bowl.

Obama did talk about the game as well as politics. See the end of this video.



Here is Bush in 2004...talking politics and football




I just don't see the big deal.

He`ll get his second term because I`m not seeing any Republican candidates who could beat him. Overall, he was not as good as the hope/change crowd dreamed, but not nearly as bad as the ATS-crowd makes him. I disagree with his excessively helping people out - auto-industry, seniors, veterans, people who need health-care...actually there is no one he didnt try to give free hand outs. But he did pretty good with foreign policy. Kudos for the Afghanistan and Pakistan stuff. Its always that way, isnt it? Dems do bad fiscally, but they do good with foreign stuff. Im OK with him another four years, but after that we need a frugal conservative to fix our economy.
