Obama provides humorous glimpse of possible second term

“If I do win a second term as President, let me just say something to all the… conspiracy-oriented friends on the right who think I'm planning to unleash some secret agenda:  You're absolutely right,” joked Obama.

“Allow me to close with a quick preview of the secret agenda you can expect in a second Obama administration,” he said.

“In my first term, I sang Al Green; in my second term, I'm going with Young Jeezy,” Obama promised, a reference to a New York City fundraiser where the president sang a line from the soul singer’s hit “Let’s Stay Together.”

“In my first term, we ended the war in Iraq; in my second term, I will win the war on Christmas,” the president continued to laughter from the dinner audience. 

“In my first term, we repealed the policy known as "don't ask, don't tell." Wait, though; in my second term, we will replace it with a policy known as, it's raining men,” he added.

The president closed his preview of a second term by turning his attention to his healthcare reform law. 

“In my first term, we passed health care reform; in my second term, I guess I'll pass it again,” Obama joked. The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the constitutionality of the administration’s healthcare overhaul shortly before the November election.
