WHILE YOU ARE WATCHING ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT, AMERICAN IDOL, KIM KARDASHIAN,and walking around with your HEAD IN HOLLYWOOD,,,HERE IS WHAT HAPPENED.....
A bill was quietly introduced on Friday and sent to committee which would allow President Obama to serve a third, fourth or any number of terms.
According to GovTrack.US, U.S. Rep. Jose’ Serrano, D-N.Y., introduced House joint resolution 15 on Jan. 4, which proposes “an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.”
The measure has since been referred to committee.
Possibly Serrano got the idea from listening to a C-SPAN caller suggest that Obama should serve for life. Whatever the source, the very idea is insane.
Gabriella Hoffman agrees, and tweeted:“Govt Track proposing an amendment to abolish prez term limits? HELL NO. America can’t afford to have a dictator. govtrack.us/congress/bills…”
Chad Brand agreed and tweeted,“So, congressman Jose Serrano from Dist 15 in New York introduces resolution 15 to repeal 22nd amendment to constitution. What insanity!”
Of course, as others on the Twitterverse noted, while any moron can introduce a bill, it would still have to pass both houses of Congress and be ratified by two-thirds of the states. Good luck with that one.
Read the bill at GovTrack.US.

Hell, I'd vote for Slick Willie again.

No chance of making it out of committee. It's a non-event. The only question to ask is why are our congressional representatives wasting time when there's real work to be done.

He submits this every year (for the past 3 years) and each time it's shot down. Why do you think this year will be different?

Kee-rist! Get a grip, would you? Dunno why but Serrano does this every Congress. See link below - he submitted the same when W was in office.

Because the media wants to keep the hate going. Their jobs aren't secure unless they can keep the panic, sensationalism and divisiveness going. It has been on a roll for four years. Why stop now?.

You might be right on that, regarding the press. The circulation of some publications is so low now it barely makes a full circle any more :-)

Still, the chances of this bill succeeding are about the same as the pope coming out as a gay atheist.

Thank you for posting this. I was wondering about this but have not had time to research the full details. It makes me feel a little better knowing at least B.O. is not going for some sort of permanent dictatorship. Four more years and then hopefully this country can get back on its feet.
