Merely a formality for the stupid democrap voters.
Get a load of this:
It’s a website devoted to just that effort.
This is why politicians should be required to take a “Whiz Quiz” every morning if they want to remain in office. It’s time to get the drugs out of Congress.
No. It's the Republicans that are stupid on this issue.
Republicans get into power and wind-up putting term limits on themselves only to see those limits lifted when Democrats win.
Unless there's a constitutional amendment that can't be undone easily, term-limits are a stupid idea.
he put this through on innaguration day.... no way would they get the required number of states to pass it.

It is moot anyway — the fuhrer ain’t gonna make it past 1 term.
Palin for life!
This is introduced all the time. I’m sure you will find it introduced during Bush’s term as well. Won’t ever happen. Now if only we could get term limits on everyone else up there.
Obama gets 52 or 53 percent of the vote and the American people deserve another 12 years of FDR nonsense. Oy!
ACK! This country has enough trouble with dynasties. Look at the Clintons and Bushes. Considering how uninterested people were in the 2000 election, I bet Clinton could have grabbed a 3rd term, and maybe even more...
Even if it means the Reagans can only serve two terms.
I don’t want the USA turning into Iran, Egypt, Russia, North Korea...
Actually, it is pretty scary to think of how many countries have dynasties.
Instead of repealing the 22nd, we should have an amendment to term limit elected federal officials.
Obama deserves to be compared to FDR. In his first 6 months, Obama is already matching up to FDR’s legacy.
Why don’t they just coronate him and be done with it.
You're absolutely right! That's the scary part...
I'm no fan of FDR; don't get me wrong.
