Americans around the nation were shocked Friday as they heard about H.J.Res. 15. H.J.Res 15 proposes an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the Twenty-second Amendment. This would remove the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President. Rep. José Serrano (D- NY15) introduced the controversial joint resolution on Friday, the second day of the 2013 legislative session.
The last President to serve more than two terms was Franklin D. Roosevelt. Roosevelt served three full terms as President and was elected to a fourth term. Roosevelt died 83 days into his fourth term in office.
Congress passed the Twenty-second Amendment on March 21, 1947. The required number of states ratified it in 1951. There have been numerous attempts to repeal the Twenty-second Amendment, including a previous attempt by Rep. José Serrano. Rep. Serrano attempted to repeal the Twenty-second Amendment with H.J.Res. 5 in 2009.
Opponents of H.J.Res. 15 are being urged to inform their representatives of their opinions and to voice their opinion on PopVox.com.
Okay look, you all know I support the President effusively.
And hey I think a third Obama term would be GREAT for the country.
But let's face it, if this were to actually happen the idea of a new civil war would move from the realm of conspiracy theory to an actual "Everybody get down, he has a gun" fact. In other words there is NO WAY this could happen without this country going through an incredible upheaval that in the end would benefit no one.
And don't forget, what's good for the goose is good for the gander.
Could you imagine the damage that would have been done to the nation if Karl Rove had stolen a THIRD term for George W. Bush? Jesus the very idea makes my damn blood run cold!
Besides how is Hillary Clinton ever going to get to be President if Obama won't get the hell out of the Oval Office?
This is a humorous notion to irritate the Teabaggers with, to be sure, but ultimately I think it is a non-starter.
