It seems like President Obama has run out of effs to give at this point in his presidency, and that he is speaking his mind a lot more, or trolling all the people who hate him so much just to upset them even more. He said Tuesday in a press conference that he could win a third term in office if he ran again, but that he is barred by the Constitution.
“I actually think I’m a pretty good President. I think if I ran, I could win. But I can’t,” Obama said during a speech in Ethiopia. “There’s a lot that I’d like to do to keep America moving. But the law is the law, and no person is above the law, not even the president.”
Obama’s remarks come just after a new CNN/ORC poll found his approval rating standing in a positive range…

MANSFIELD (AP) — A Massachusetts man has been arrested by police and the U.S Secret Service after they said he made death threats against President Barack Obama.
Mansfield police and Secret Service agents Friday went to the West Village apartments on West Street to speak with the man who they say made threats to kill the president. He refused to cooperate and would not leave his apartment.
A SWAT team and negotiator were brought in and the man eventually left his apartment and was taken into custody.
Police say a search of his apartment did not find anything that appeared to be a public safety hazard.
The man was taken to the hospital to be evaluated.
Massachusetts State Police and the Secret Service are investigating the matter. Mansfield police say criminal charges may be filed.

Here’s some positivity.
President Obama proposed two years of free community college for American workers late Thursday. Earlier that day, the president announced the proposal would be coming in a video uploaded to Facebook.
“Put simply, what I’d like to do is to see the first two years of community college free for anybody who’s willing to work for it,” he said. “It’s something we can accomplish, and it’s something that will train our workforce so that we can compete with anyone in the world.”
Obama said a world-class education starts with children, but that adults need training, too. “It’s not just for kids, we also have to make sure that everybody has the opportunity to constantly train themselves for better jobs, better wages, better benefits.”
The America’s College Promise proposal could save eligible students $3,800 a year in tuition, the White House said.

President Obama’s daughter Malia sure has good taste in Hip-Hop, as she was seen wearing a ProERA t-shirt in a candid picture.
Pro Era promoted the image on their store by way of instagram.
It has yet to be determined how the leak occurred, but it can be assumed the president will find out.
