Obama 2012: Five More Years!

That’s what he’s saying, anyway. The Hill:

President Obama declared Monday that his presidency “is not over” and that he’ll be occupying the White House for another five years.

In an interview with Univision, a seemingly confident Obama said he’ll have more time to work on hot-button issues like immigration in his next term.

“Well, first of all … my presidency is not over,” Obama, who just a few months ago described himself as an underdog in the presidential race, said in a telephone interview.

“I’ve got another five years coming up. We’re going to get this done,” he said.

Keep in mind that President Genius will get a second five-year term only if he wins the required number of electoral votes from enough of the 57 states.

Sure, it could be that he meant “five years from today.” It could also be that I have no reason to give him the benefit of the doubt. If, in Feb. ’04, George Bush had said, “I’ve got another five years coming up,” the press would’ve been all over him for it. So you can deal with a little razzing, Obama fans. There, there.

P.S. Obama is also apologizing to a religious group for offending their beliefs. No, not you, Catholics.
