Former President Barack Obama had to remind a raucous crowd in Newark, New Jersey Thursday that the 22nd Amendment prevents him from getting back into the White House.
At a campaign rally for New Jerseys Democratic gubernatorial nominee Phil Murphy, attendees shouted "four more years" as Obama stood on stage addressing them. From his first appearance at the podium, the response was enthusiastic for the 44th president, who was replaced by President Donald Trump after he won the election against Obama's former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
"How's it going New Jersey?" Obama said. "Are you fired up? Are you ready to go?"
"Oh, it is good to be back in Jersey!" he said. "Its good to be back in Newark, good to see all of you."
While he had a chance to talk over a slightly quieter crowd, he made a joke about friends in attendance.
"I got a bunch of old friends hereI dont mean you look old, Im saying weve known each other," Obama said.
Someone in the crowd shouted, "I love you!" and Obama replied, "I love you back!"
Obama tried to begin his remarks but the cheers drowned him out, and then the "four more years" chant began. They continued in unison while Murphy clapped along on stage, leading Obama to jest about that idea's questionable legality and family implications.
"I will refer both to the Constitution as well as to Michelle Obama to explain why that will not happen, but we got four more years coming up right here in Jersey," he said, referring to Murphys term as governor if he wins the election.

Murphy won the Democratic nomination and is expected to win the gubernatorial race to replace outgoing Republican Gov. Chris Cristie, whose approval rating has sagged to low levels. Murphy's polling lead over Republican Kim Guadagno has consistently held in the double-digits.
I’d probably settle for 20 to life at this point.
Just a good ol'American homeboy shoutin' out to his peeps.
Murphy is a shoo-in. Not a referendum on Trump in Deep Blue NJ.
Obama was never eligible to be President.
He is not a natural born citizen.
I’d say 30-to-life but we’re basically on the same page.
Check out the video of the tight shot of some well-dressed, professional-looking attendees. That wasn’t a crowd. It was a teeny rent-a-mob.
Don’t worry, that works just fine for me.
“4 MORE YEARS”
Translation: “EFF US UP THE ASS!”
I guess some people are into that kind of stuff, nah, I’ll pass.
[Someone in the crowd shouted, “I love you!” and Obama replied, “I love you back!”]
Some percentage of this country will never come to grips with reality.
Bought and paid for crowd ,LOL . I bet Obama tries to find a way to run again
those people are in the grips of a ‘personal, subjective’ reality. There is no saving them.
I heard someone say that a former 2 term president can run for vice president, then become president again if the elected president resigns or dies in office.
It seems far fetched that you could run for VP after having been elected president twice.
Rumor has it he’ll apply for US citizenship this time.
I would settle for a point 04 Moa
Sometimes the blinding truth hurts.
It’s Jersey...why would anyone expect anything less....
He and Hitlery need to be in jail....as cellmates....LOL
Don’t underestimate or give ideas !!
