President Barack Obama’s priorities in a second term could include tackling climate change, halting nuclear proliferation, bolstering overseas aid and immigration reform, according to his senior advisers.The guy's a lefty ideologue, pure and simple. He can't help himself. He has to work on issues of little or no consequence because that's what liberals do. Results don't matter, only intentions.
Although on the campaign trail Obama insists that the central campaign issue is ‘how we build an economy that works for everybody’, White House aides, speaking to the New Yorker in a lengthy article about Obama’s plans for a second term, stressed other themes.
Officials insist that they are not taking Obama’s re-election for granted. But Ryan Lizza, author of the article, revealed that Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s former chief of staff, had told him right at the start of Obama’s presidency ‘that the White House was already contemplating the Presidency in terms of eight years’.
But of course, he won't get another four years.
