Besides killing Bin Laden and paving the way toward killing your grandma with Obamacare, so far the main achievement of The Greatest President Ever is how much he whines about the job. Last month it was, “Boo hoo, I wish I was anonymous.” Now it’s this:
Eight years as president is enough, thank you. At least that’s what Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says President Barack Obama told her the other day.
Clinton said Tuesday that she and Obama often marvel over foreign despots who want to stay in power for decades.
She 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.
She says she and the president joke: “Oh, my gosh. Can you imagine?”
Clinton says Obama told her, “I’m going to win re-election, and then I’m done,” a remark that drew laughter from the audience.
Ha ha, get it? Because of the 22nd Amendment. He’s a big believer in the Constitution! Tee-hee.
Of course, if it’s such a hardship, he could just resign right now and be done with it. But then he wouldn’t have a cool house and a cool plane and a bunch of people to do what he says and clap at him when he says lots and lots of words. If the price for all those perks is that some people disagree with him, well, he’ll gladly whimper about it like a spoiled baby and do everything he can to stay in power for a few more years. Also, you are a racist.
P.S. Two other bad things about being the President of the United States: Newspapers publish things you don’t like, and then they write about it when you punish them.
