At this stage in the game when it comes to Dear Leader…nothing would surprise me, not even the possibility of him trying to run for Prez for a third term. Since I watched this live early this morning, I wanted to share this with you and see where your thoughts are on this possible scenario.
You can read about this here. – Here’s the report:
A caller identified as Lawrence from the Bronx, New York, asked C-SPAN guest Brendan Doherty Saturday whether he believed the constitution could be amended so that President Obama could run for three terms. If that wouldn’t be possible, Lawrence continued, could the Democrats “overwhelmingly” take back the House in 2014?
Doherty recently authored, “The Rise Of The President’s Permanent Campaign,” a book that examines whether a President’s time spent campaigning can be separated from time spent governing in recent years. He fielded the caller’s question as best as he could, answering honestly, “The prospect of amending the Constitution to allow a president to serve more than two terms…is tremendously unlikely. ”
Bill Clinton wished that he could run for another term at the end of his presidency, Doherty said, but it wasn’t possible. He also noted the Constitution had only been amended 27 times – 10 of those amendments being the Bill of Rights – and that “amendments are hard to get through.” Unfortunately for the caller, Doherty said, “I don’t see any grassroots support to let a president serve a third term.”
He also answered Lawrence’s second question in the negative, telling him he believed chances were “slim” for Democrats to “take the House back.”

Seeing how the Dictator-in-Chief has already trampled on the constitution more than once or twice…why wouldn’t he try to do so again when it comes to a run for a third term? Heck, it wouldn’t surprise me if he didn’t try to deem it so via another Executive Order…how ’bout you? – Just some food for thought!
