How is he going to justify what he said three years ago with the condition of the economy now?

He can't, unless he counts on lots of illiteracy, innumeracy and Alzheimer's among the electorate.

Or he could just point out that we are officially out of the worst recession in US history, the private sector is sitting on record piles of cash, bigger than ever in its history, government spending is slowing down (thanks mostly to ending the wars abroad and not getting entangled in new ones), and the DOW has doubled.

But of course, such arguments may not work on lots of the illiterate, innumerate, and Alzheimer's among the electorate.

Obama was responding to specific questions about the Troubled Asset Relief Program and whether its economic benefits would merit the costs, then estimated at $700 billion.

"At some point will you say, `Wait a minute, we've spent this amount of money. We're not seeing the results. We've got to change course dramatically?'" Lauer asked Obama.

"Look, I'm at the start of my administration. One nice thing about the situation I find myself in is that I will be held accountable. You know, I've got four years. And, you know, a year from now I think people are going to see that we're starting to make some progress," Obama said. "But there's still going to be some pain out there. If I don't have this done in three years, then there's going to be a one-term proposition."

Obama told Matt Lauer in 2009 - and has repeated many times since - that "there's no silver bullets" for the economy and that it's "going to take some time for us to be able to dig ourselves out of this hole."

"Is it time for Democrats to panic?

"That's what a growing number of party loyalists are wondering, amid a rough couple of weeks in which President Øbama and his political operation have been buffeted by bad economic news, their own gaffes and signs that the presumed Republican nominee is gaining strength."

*I see Bill Clinton's master plan is coming together. Team Incompetence is doing "just fine."

No, clearly when he said that he meant every problem ever in the history of problems. The world isn't perfect. Vote Romney!

"Former Green Party presidential candidate Ralph Nader told The Daily Caller that former President Bill Clinton is "undermining President Obama" to lay the "groundwork" for Hillary Clinton's presidential run in 2016.

"He's laying down the groundwork for Hillary Clinton running for president in 2016."

He's certainly not helping Obama, that's for sure. Of course, he's told the truth in all examples where the administration became upset with him, but no one seems to care.

That's a lot of counting!

Clinton is a double agent for the Republicans.

He knows that 4 more years of Øbama will destroy the Democratic party for years to come.

Clinton works for the Trilateral Commission.
Obama works for the Freemasons.

"The private sector is doing fine" -Øbama 06/08/12

Bill Clinton gets it. He knows this clown is becoming more and more pathetic and frankly an embarrassment to the Democratic Party.

Right now there is no leadership, inspiration, aspiration or entrepreneurial drive.

Everyone from private citizens to Fortune 500 companies are sitting and waiting for the November elections to bring a sweeping change to this unsustainable economic disaster created by the clueless Øbama Administration.

Breaking news: Obama evolved on his previous statement. He now says he meant 3 dog years.

If only the Republicans put up someone better than Obama it would be a cake walk. Instead they picked a Rino crony capitalist, socialist for the rich Mormon former Massachusetts gov.

Even if Romney on some crazy chance becomes President and defeats Obama by a narrow margin, with the electoral college, i cannot see him having more than a single term unless he produces immediate results. Like getting Americans back to work.

The days of Americans infinite patience ended after 8 years of W Bush.

I would think that he should at least be elected once before you start talking about a second term.
