If I ran, ‘I could win’: Obama says he’d be a shoo-in for third term

Could the country take four more years of this?

President Obama told an audience in Ethiopia on Tuesday that not only has he done a bang-up job as America’s commander in chief, he thinks he’d win a third term running again if he wasn’t prevented by that pesky Constitution.

He made the remarks addressing the African Union in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, while discussing the need for African leaders to step aside when their term in office is over.

“Under our Constitution I cannot run again,” he said to applause. “I actually think I’m a pretty good president. I think if I ran I could win. But I can’t!”

Obama was actually being modest, saying he thinks he’s a “pretty good president.” Ever the egomaniac, he thinks he’s an awesome president.

“There’s a lot I’d like to do to keep America moving,” he added. “But the the law is the law and no one person is above the law, not even the president.”

It would be nice if he acted like he believed that.

The Twitterverse had fun with his comments, including Dinesh D’Souza, the conservative filmmaker who lost his freedom to an Obama Justice Department campaign finance prosecution. D’Souza called Obama a “Legend in his own mind.”
