Obama is the epitome of the Peter Principle; he kept being promoted because others saw value in his use as a symbol and they knew that all they had to do was stroke his ego to facilitate their agenda. Obama has never done anything, is incapable of making a tough decision without a league of counsel and is so infatuated with himself, as to be naive in the extreme. Does Obama want a second term? Yes and for the most nefarious of reasons. Obama has been challenged for the first time in his life and he doesn't appreciate those who have thrown down the gauntlet. If Obama is re-elected, his agenda will be "payback time," the man is ferociously vindictive. Barack Obama will sacrifice this nation to soothe his ego.

Byron York notes that his presidential term of four years is about as long as Barack Obama has ever held any one job before seeking to move on, and aggregates pieces by liberals wondering whether the President even wants a second term.

My guess is that the answer is a clear "no." As Ronald Brownstein points out, he has no second term agenda.  

I don't think that he's exactly "bored" in the job (or looking to be "kicked upstairs," as I've put it before).  Rather, it's that the job is harder than he thought it would be...
