Obama says he’s being “forced out” of the presidency

Mr. Obama lacks a certain class. This is one of the things that rubs people the wrong way. In a Golf Channel interview he explained that he wasn’t “quitting” he was being “forced out.” The implication being that he’d like to cling to power a la FDR in violation of the tradition of 2 term presidencies (now law).

Thank God for the 22nd Amendment.

It should also be noted that the 22nd Amendment was passed by Congress less than 2 years after FDR’s death and was ratified by the states 6 years after his death. (In other words – quickly.) FDR was considered a dangerous president who refused to give up the reins of power by many.

That Obama didn’t say something like “8 years is enough” or something along those lines says quite a lot about the man and his style of politics.

He also says that he might become a better golfer now that he will have more time. He’s golfed 300 times in his presidency. Which means he’s averaged a little less than a round a week for 7+ years. I wish I could find time for a 4 hour round every week. Also I wish I had 3 million in taxpayer dollars to pay greens fees like Obama. But hey, I’m not the president.

“Actually you are quitting your day job fairly shortly,” Feherty pointed out.

“Well then I may get good,” Obama replied grinning, before adding, “I’m being forced out, I didn’t quit.”
