Sen. Al Franken:"In 2 Years, Obama 'May Not Be the President'"

Sen. Al Franken, a liberal Democrat from Minnesota, suggested on Wednesday that Barack Obama may be a one-term president.

“I should note that President Obama could nominate a new director who would be there for ten years. And by extending you for two years--he is uh--in two years, he may not be the president"

He made the comment as the Senate Judiciary Committee considered President Obama’s request to extend FBI Director Robert Mueller’s ten-year term for two more years.

Franken commended Mueller for his service to the nation, but he also said that “term limits exist for a reason.” However, given a “unique set of circumstances”--including a new CIA director and a new defense secretary--Franken indicated that he could go along with a two-year extension for Mueller.

Wild Thing's comment.........

I know this is being said by a horrible liberal, but I do love to hear it said.

In two years obama may not be president. Nice sound to that!!

For the sake of this nation, let's pray that Franken is right.

Wild Thing, contributors, readers and friends of Theodore’s World, we Americans vote in a General Election in a little over 500 days, and I think I’ve been able to figure it now.

What I write here, nobody is writing or talking about, but they soon will.

I do think we have a conservative white knight who, if he now seeks the Republican nomination, can win and will win simply because he must win.

I believe the November 2012 General Election will prove to be the most important, decisive election in the history of our country since 1860 and Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican.

Anyhow, allow me to introduce you,

born in 1950, he was:

-an Eagle Boy Scout growing up and coming of age in the 1960’s

-a door to door book salesman before graduating from college

-a C-130 pilot and Air Force Captain in the 1970’s

-a cotton farmer and elected a Democrat state representative in the 1980’s

-a twice elected Republican State Agriculture Commissioner in the 1990’s

-and for the last ten years, the Governor of his state, three times elected.

Pro-life, and opposing legal recognition of same sex marriages, he is a social conservative.

With a low tolerance for crime and a law and order proponent of the death penalty, there have been more than 200 executions during his tenure as Governor.

A fiscal conservative for the most part, he has signed and delivered balanced budgets as the law requires in a state with no income tax with remarkably no increases in the state sales taxes, while still protecting his state’s rainy day fund.

He has written two books:

“On My Honor: Why the American Values of the Boy Scouts are Worth Fighting For” where he defends and celebrates the positive impact of the organization on America’s youth and criticizes the ACLU for its legal actions against the Boy Scouts of America.

In his second book, “Fed Up! Our Fight to Save America from Washington”, he writes of the founding fathers’ intent for limited federal government.

Now that his state’s legislative session this year is coming to an end, I think we may very well soon have an announcement from Austin of a successful white knight entry into the 2012 race for the White House of one,

James Richard “Rick” Perry, the three term Governor of the State of Texas.

It is not easy to unseat a sitting President, but it can be done.

It will be done, simply because it must be done.

During what will certainly be a contentious, heated campaign with sadly many false claims of racism, other crap and diversions, the economy will still be the predominant and defining issue.

In the midst of a serious economic downturn throughout the country and the world, the Lone Star State has great comparative economic strength and continued success being the state with the largest job creation with a growing economy, lower unemployment despite the severe recession, and with low state taxes, restrained public spending and balanced budgets.

The eyes of Texas and the world will see this stark economic policy contrast of the current White House with higher taxes, higher deficit spending, and continued higher unemployment making for a fork in the road so very clear and well delineated for American voters that will forebode well throughout the campaign to come.

So as this remains the predominant issue, victory is assured for a better America with conservative leadership in the White House, President Rick Perry, Vice President Marco Rubio and with more than a pretty face, registered nurse and first lady Anita Perry (God help them):

The stars and stripes forever !

The problem is that the Democrats got so much out of the CIA in the first years after 9/11 because the leader was a Clinton appointment. We certainly do not want a CIA director or FBI director that are Obama appointments to last past Jan. 20 2013.
