Obama: It would be so much easier to be the president of China

The New York Times: [...]Mr. Obama has told people that it would be so much easier to be the president of China. As one official put it, “No one is scrutinizing Hu Jintao’s words in Tahrir Square.”
Got some news for Obama, it would be so much easier on us too if he was the president of China!

Bill Kristol at the Weekly Standard has a great response to The Won's lament:

Mr. Obama is right.
If you’re president of China, people around the world who are fighting for freedom don’t really expect you to help. If you’re president of China, you don’t have to put up with annoying off-year congressional elections, and then negotiate your budget with a bunch of gun-and-religion-clinging congressmen and senators. If you’re president of China, you can fund your national public radio to your heart’s content. And if you’re president of China, when you host a conference on bullying in schools, people take you seriously.
Unfortunately for him and us, Barack Obama is president of the United States. That job brings with it certain special responsibilities. It’s a tough job—maybe tougher than being president of China. But Barack Obama ran for president of the United States. Maybe he should start behaving as one.
Quite frankly, Obama is not leadership material for any nation, never was and never will be. Had the media not blown sunshine up everyone's butt back in 2008 and simply reported Obama's record (or lack thereof), he would not be fantasizing about Hu Jintao's job and we would not be fantasizing about having a different president.

2012 cannot come fast enough for me.

It's always easier to be the Imperator of a single-party Communist government.

And maybe when he leaves the White House, Obama can go to Kenya or somewhere else where he can achieve his dream.

If we allow Obama to set another term as President he will not have any limit on his power. The Congress--regardless of party has handed over too much executive authority without any oversight. UN mandates and global currency here we come and Constitution be damned! That what the Progressives have planned for our future.

Is that a half-bow in the pic? (and wouldn't it be wonderful if that could be arranged - sending him to China?)

The biggest problem with another Obama term (besides the fact that he would finish the destruction he's begun) would be the SCOTUS - we absolutely cannot let him appoint another left-wing nut to the Supreme Court! Elections have consequences - presidents come and go - but 'supremes' live forever... it's about the JUDGES - please remember that in 2012!!!
