Is one term or even two terms long enough for a President to get the job done?
As the election draws near, what do you think? Should a President's term be extended? I heard Michelle Obama on the radio today asking people to vote for Obama to give him time to finish what he started. She spoke of parents teaching their children not to quit and to complete your task.
Parents and children analogy? Really? Exactly how the Democrats see the relationship between Government and the people though. Perfect example.
Reagan inherited just as big a mess if not more so. While he did not accomplish all goals his first term he was re-elected in a landslide because all economic indicators were moving in the right direction and the average American could FEEL the recovery. So really, don't tell me it couldn't be done in one term. Obama himself said if he couldn't turn things around he'd be a one term President. I hope that is at least one campaign promise the American people force him to keep.
I think each president should only have one term, but it should be for 8, or maybe even 6, years. A vast majority get re-elected anyways, and if someone is really that bad, there are ways of removing them from office. I think if they weren't so worried about getting elected a second time, they would focus more time and energy on actually running the country.
I think if they work hard enough and focus hard enough someone could make a difference for the good in the first term. It would get them re-elected for a second term, but the problem is someone that good nobody would want to get rid of.

The title is misleading, because I have no answer as to why he does. Can those of you who plan to vote, or voted for Obama the first time give some valid reasons?

Although her chances of winning is next to nothing (I'd rather vote for a sock puppet), but as a worse case senereo, I would tour Canada and Europe for four years and try not to stick out as an American due to embarrasment (very hard to do). It was bad enough traveling to Canada while Bush was in...

Since he failed miserably to cut the deficit during his first term and his new budget proposal adds a trillion dollars more to our national debt, what can he promise during his road to re-election? Here are some of my suggestions."My plans will work this time, really.""Let me...
