President-elect Barack Obama won't be sworn in for another week, but according to Politico, some are already calling the 2012 election for his nonexistent opponent.
White House reporters for The New York Times predict that the market collapse will force President-elect Barack Obama to abandon for now many of his campaign promises.
If his stimulus plan "doesn’t work out, he may very well be a one-term president," said Jeff Zeleny, who covered Obama's campaign. "It's hard to imagine that he could be reelected if the economy’s in the exact same position four years from now."
Too true! After all, you can't expect to win a second term if you don't keep your campaign promises.
President Bush knows what I'm talking about. He's spent his entire presidency working to fullfill his campaign pledges to destroy the economy, overextend the military and take a dump on a panda on live TV (there are still eight days left!).
