Even if they wanted to do this, I find it hard to believe that they'd be willing to spend the time and effort to get the amendment changed. Heck -- even a lot of Democrats with political aspirations would be dead-set against this.
Won’t this require an amendment to the Constitution? I just can’t see enough senators or governors that would touch this. I can’t see the populace putting up with such a move.
They already figured out how to rig the elections
That is not just a law to be repealed, it’s the 22nd Ammendment.
2/3 of House, 2/3 of Senate, and 3/4ths of the State Legislatures would need to agree to this by Constitutional amendment.
Maybe a totally packed Supreme Court could convince everyone that the 22nd Amendment was null and void because of umbras and penumbras and references to Scottish Law but I doubt it.
If you look up the bill histories of each Congress, you’ll see that frequently this is proposed right off. Lieberman D-Ct proposed such an amendment right after he got through defending Billy Clinton.
I would live to be a fly on the Clinton’s wall if he tries.
Michelle obama has already said it. She mentioned their “first 10 years” in office in 2008. I haven’t been able to find record of it, but I’ve never forgotten it.
Big problem with your prediction...
By the time a law, or better yet, a constitutional amendment gets passed to allow a president to run for more than 2 terms, the next election season will be upon us, and chances are that, a republican could get elected instead of Obama, and the democrats would be having all kinds of regrets after having that amendment passed which could get a republican installed in the presidency for for 20 years or more.
Can anyone doubt that, someone like Reagan couldn’t get elected for 20 or 30 years? That would be the biggest nightmare for any democrat. They’d be looking for repeal of the law or the amendment, as soon as any republican got elected and was deemed electable for a lengthy period of time.
So, my prediction: Ain’t gonna happen!
I said it many times ,Obama is staying for life ,then it gets turned over to the wife or the kids
You may be the first to predict it here, but I read Porter Stansberry say it a week or more before the election and I have been suggesting this to friends ever since.
I’d say odds are 90% he’ll go for it.
I asked one Freeper whose views I share but who didn’t vote for Romney because he was too liberal, “What if you’d known in advance that O was going to seize power for 12 years? Would you have voted for Romney?” He said yes.
Many who didn’t vote for Romney may end up regretting it, I am quite certain of that.
Put your seatbelts on, friends.
And draw close to God....the shaking is just beginning......
In regard to all the posts here about how O can’t pull this off, the 22nd Amendment, etc......
Obama is the lawless one. He is above and beyond law, law does not apply to him or anything he wants to do. How many times has he already demonstrated this?
He will find a way.
I believe it was one of Clinton’s flunkies that said something like, “Just like that !! Stroke of the pen, law of the land!” He was refering to a just signed Exec. Order, which happens to be Obama’s favorite means of enacting public policy. Clinton was Obama Lite in this regard, seldom subjecting his new public policy desires to the messy legislaltive debate and vote process.
He will over reach to the point that his own base will turn, also he will be impeached causing a civil war. The branches will refuse to follow the presidents orders and the communist that we were told infiltrated us years ago are rounded up and shipped to Iran and Cuba. Except for the real traitors who will be lined up against the piece of the Iron Curtain in Illinois and shot.
It requires a Constitutional Amendment, approval by 2/3 of the House and senate and ratification by 3/4 of the states. No way is this going to happen.
You’re a couple years late - folks on FR have been predicting it evre since parts of the Obama Care atrocity was “deemed to have been passed” and when it was also clear about the folks he was surrounding himself with.
