Barack Obama told the African Union on Tuesday that he felt he had been a “pretty good” president and if he were allowed to run for a third term, he’d probably win.
Obama made the remarks while criticizing leaders on the continent who wouldn’t step aside at the conclusion of their terms.
“Now, let me be honest with you,” Obama said. “I do not understand this. I am in my second term. It has been an extraordinary privilege for me to serve as the President of the United States. I cannot imagine a greater honor or a more interesting job. I love my work. But under our Constitution, I cannot run again.”
The crowd enthusiastically cheered; easy for them to say, he is not their president.
“I actually think I’m a pretty good president,” he said. “I think if I ran, I could win. But I can’t. So there’s a lot that I’d like to do to keep America moving, but the law is the law.”
Fortunately for Americans, Obama will not seek a third term, although, many fear he may declare Martial Law to remain in the White House.
