    Can't wait.

    I'd like to see him treated just like Washington DC treated George Bush upon his departure. The boo's. The jeers. All with the national debt clock rolling up in the background.

    I'd applaud Romney saying that the Obama era represented “our collective failure to make hard choices and prepare the nation for a new age”. (Obama quote)

    The only thing that would make me happier is if Republicans took control of the Senate, sent Harry Reid packing majority leader, and kept control of the House.

    You left out Harry Truman, JFK, and LBJ. None of them were elected twice to the office of President.

    I didn't leave them out.
    That article from the US government itself left them out.

    More likely, you will see the vandalism of the white house that occurred when GWB came into town. Guess they will rip off all of the "R" keys on the keyboard this time.

    I think the difference is that it is a list of "one term presidential losers". You can't lose if you don't run.

    The one MAJOR, GLARING difference between Barack Hussein Obama and all those other one-termers is that Barack Hussein Obama should have never qualified to come anywhere near close to the White House.

    He simply lacked qualification.
