Obama Says He’s "Confident" He Could Have Won 2016 Election if Not for Darned 22nd Amendment

FDR hung around for two extra terms because of extenuating circumstances such as World War II and the Great Depression. So if hurtling toward destruction is what it takes, when can we tag in Obama?

On Monday’s Axe Files podcast, the outgoing commander-in-chief said he has faith he would have won the 2016 presidency if he had been eligible to enter the race.

“I am confident in this vision because I’m confident that if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could’ve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it,” he said to listeners. “I know that in conversations that I’ve had with people around the country, even some people who disagreed with me, they would say the vision, the direction that you point toward is the right one.”

And here is his gracious would-be opponent’s response.

President Obama said that he thinks he would have won against me. He should say that but I say NO WAY! – jobs leaving, ISIS, OCare, etc.
