Obama - a one-term president?
Why does he keep missing the obvious?
New poll puts him at 41% approval


A: Will Barack Obama be a one-term president?

A: Yes, he might last that long.

Honest to goodness, the man just does not get it.
He might be forced to pull a Palin and resign before his first term is over.
He could go off and write his memoirs and build his presidential library. (Both would be half-size, of course.)

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.

As I've been saying for a year, his presidency is not over - he just needs to wake up.
As I've been asking for a year, WHEN is that going to happen?

Obama, apparently, thinks a smile and a wave will makeall  his problems go away.
If he doesn't think that, why isn't he taking steps to fix things?
