Seems the Founding Fathers knew what they were doing when the put a limit on the amount of time a president can preside. According to the current occupant of the White House, after 8 years in the Oval Office, it’s usually time for some “fresh legs.”
In an interview with CBS, the President explained that even if it was allowed to run for a third term, he wouldn’t. Because,“Number one, Michelle wouldn’t let me.”
The President continued.
“This is a process in which the office should be continually renewed by new energy and new ideas and new insights,” Obama said. “And although I think I am as good of a president as I have ever been right now, I also think that there comes a point where you don’t have fresh legs.”
Obama also said there “absolutely” are days when he wonders why he ever ran for the presidency, saying there are times when he gets “tired” and “frustrated.”
“And yet, there has not been a day that I have not walked into the Oval Office and understood that at no point in my life will I ever have the chance to do as much good and make as much of a difference in the lives of people as I do right now,” Obama said.
