Barack Obama, Campaigning in Spartanburg

Candidate Obama, Nov, 2007

I saw this floating around the “tubes” today. Thought I would share one of Obama’s greatest quotes on the economy.

 “If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s gonna be a one term proposition”

    I’m not sure that he was term limiting himself like you mentioned in your tweet. I think he was more just clear on the idea that if things didn’t turn around over his first term then it’s unlikely for him to achieve a second term. Looking at polls and the numbers as they’re going right now, it looks like he had pretty reasonable insight there.

      Maybe term limiting was a little strong. I agree with your opinion. I’m just curious what the “one term proposition” would be?
