Liberal columnist says Obama will be one-term president — and might even resign before 2012
Liberal columnist Roger Simon (not to be confused with a right-winger of the same name) clearly is frustrated with President Obama and SAYS he might not finish out his term.
I am not saying Obama is not smart; he is as smart as a whip. I am just saying he does not understand what savvy first-term presidents need to understand:
You have to stay on message, follow the polls, listen to your advisers (who are writing the message and taking the polls) and realize that when it comes to doing what is right versus doing what is expedient, you do what is expedient so that you can get reelected and do what is right in the second term. If at all possible. And it will help your legacy. And not endanger the election of others in your party. And not hurt the brand. Or upset people too much.
