Dems Want Obama in Power for Life
What if Obama is able to use cheating ACORN thugs, a fudged census, and tens of millions of illegals newly granted welfare benefits and voting rights to secure a permanent electoral majority? At least we still have the 22nd Amendment, which guards against dictatorship by limiting how long an individual can hold the presidency.
But then, Venezuela had a similar rule. Hugo Chavez recently tossed it out. Already, attempts are underway to do the same here. Rep Jose Serrano (D-NY) has introduced H.J. Resolution 5 to officially repeal the 22nd Amendment.
At least Democrats must fear the public a little, or they wouldn't still be going at this incrementally, instead of just repealing the entire document.
On a tip from J.

Some interpret Dear Teleprompter's moves the opposite way; He only expects to be a one-term president and so he is trying to do as much damage as possible.

Yes, G o' Y, I think it was Dick Morris who thought that O was so idealogical fervid, that he would give anything to cram his agenda in, and sacrifice another term for the "greater good."

Damn didn't those dumbasses realize that Hugo Chavez's arm was up Castro's ass making his lips move and his head bobble? :)

OOOOPPPPSSSSS wrong thread.

This same senator has introduced this bill six other times. This is more of a "lone nut" then any systemic issue.
This one will suffer the same fate at those bills, the DOMA, the ERA, and anti-flag burning amendment; quiet death in committee.

Selective Reporting [AGAIN]... Joint Resolutions to repeal the 22nd Amendment have been introduced in EVERY Congress by members of BOTH PARTIES!
107th Congress (2001) -HJ Res 39 (Pres Bush);
108th Cong (2003) - HJ Res 25 (Pres Bush);
109th (2005) - HJ Res 9 (Pres Bush);
110th (2007) - HJ Res 8 (Pres Bush);
111th (2009) - HJ Res 5 (Pres Obama).
LOOK IT UP:http://thomas.loc.gov/home/multicongress/multicongress.html search String="repeal the twenty-second"
Mr Plover - should conservatives in favor of installing President-for-Life Bush raise their right claw? They tried it FOUR TIMES!

Maybe we should do as the Confederate Constitution: President for six years, NO MORE. You're out FOREVER.
We'll pass that AFTER Hopey McChange is old and gray, of course.

The problem with being president for life is the rotten retirement plan, e.g. Adolph Hitler,Benito Mussolini and Saddam Hussein.

Fat Stanley, notice how they ignore the facts when you stick them right under their noses? Your wasting your time trying to reason with them. I'd just poke them with a stick and rile them up, eventually they will just start biting each other. No hope for the batshit crazies.

"Anonymous at April 10, 2009 4:50 AM"
Has anyone denied Fat Stanley's post? Did FS think we would LIKE unlimited terms if Repubs supported it?
The answer to both is "Hell No".
Read this discussion again (IF you even BOTHERED to read it already), you'll see that we DON'T WANT unlimited terms for the US president, no matter who he/she is.
"Batshit crazies" indeed.

Serrano looks like a waiter on a cruise ship. "Here is your rum daiquiri, sir, with an umbrella as you requested."
