◼ Rep. Jose Serrano reintroduces bill to repeal presidential term limit - Twitchy
We’re still a couple of weeks from the inauguration, but Rep. Jose Serrano (D-N.Y.) is already looking forward to 2016 and beyond. The congressman yesterday reintroduced a bill to repeal the 22nd amendment establishing term limits for the president.
@gabby_hoffman Since it has to pass both house of Congress AND get approval by 2/3 of the states...not likely to happen.— SOD (@stilloldduck) January 6, 2013
It does come up quite a bit. It’s interesting that so many who consider the First Amendment inviolable believe the Second Amendment is outdated, and the usefulness of the 22nd Amendment changes every few years.
◼ OBAMA’S THIRD TERM? Democrat Proposes Repeal of 22nd Amendment - The Other McCain
Crazy as it is, however, it’s not a joke: Rep. Jose Serrano (D-N.Y.) on Friday re-introduced as H.J. 15 the same bill he offered last year, “Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment” — i.e., to end the two-term limit on the presidency, enabling Obama to be “President fo Life.”
The Twitchy Team is all over it, but as Barbara points out, there’s not a snowball’s chance in hell this this thing could ever pass the ratification process. Of course, the Democrat Party’s contempt for the Constitution is so complete, they don’t care. They’d declare martial law, prohibit dissent as a “crime against the people” and govern by decree if it weren’t for the fact that conservatives are armed to the teeth. That probably explains why Obama is the greatest gun salesman in American history.
