Cheney: Obama a One Term President

Well, this will get our liberals foaming at the mouth – from USA Today:

Former vice president Dick Cheney, back in the public eye after a major heart operation, predicts that President Obama will be a one-term president because of health care and other big government programs.

In an interview to air Tuesday on NBC’s Today show, Cheney cited Obama’s “overall approach to expanding the size of government, expanding the deficit, and giving more and more authority and power to the government over the private sector.”…

It is to be hoped so, and Cheney is an astute observer of American politics – but, also, don’t get cocky, Republicans. Obama will spend a billion dollars on his re-election effort and short of murder, there isn’t anything Democrats won’t do to hold on to the White House. Any incumbent President is hard to beat – even Carter put up a strong fight against Reagan, and Carter had absolutely nothing going for him as 1980 dawned.
