Heh: “President Obama could get 3 terms if H.J.Res 15 abolishes term limits”

From The Examiner:

Americans around the nation were shocked Friday as they heard about H.J.Res. 15. H.J.Res 15 proposes an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the Twenty-second Amendment. This would remove the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President. Rep. José Serrano (D- NY15) introduced the controversial joint resolution on Friday, the second day of the 2013 legislative session.”

    It’s bad enough we already have a corrupt and imperialistic two party system now a king as well. America is surly headed on the same path as Nazi, Germany in the 1940’s. Just like Nazi, Germany America is allowing itself to be placed under the influence of Obama’s hubris. Sooner or later China, and Russia are going to challenge that hubris by means of a World War. Only then will America wake up when it finds itself in the same place as Germany after World War II.

    Mr Murphy – Take a breath, Sir. Just because some Kool-aid swilling weirdo suggests it, doesn’t mean it has a snowball’s chance in hell of passing.

    Americans have been incredibly stupid in recent years, and I believe we are indeed headed for World War. That does nothing to change the fact that this WILL NEVER PASS!

    More of them showed up to vote (well, that and voter fraud), but election day apathy, on our side, hides the fact that we still out-number them by more than 2 to 1.

    Don’t lose sight of that. Oh, and welcome!!!

      Sir….do not ever say “Never..” it will come back to haunt you!

        I believe Nita meant “never” in the context of fairly current situations. Many more years of anti-rights incrementalism and that may change, certainly, however.

        People are understandably getting very heated over this issue. We’re doing what we can to keep things somewhat moderated, and to allow cooler heads to rise.

        • notamobster says:

          That’s exactly what I meant, Uke. That’s why I directly referenced this particular legislation. It will NEVER PASS! 3/4 of the states voting to give Barry a 3rd term? Ummm…. no.

          Meteor destroying earth tomorrow? Unlikely, but possible. Global pandemic kills off 98% of the world, next month? Unlikely, but possible.

          3/4 of the states which comprise the United States of America ratifying this craptacular amendment to the Constitution?

          Not a freaking chance!

    It takes 2/3rds of the states to radify a change in the Consitution so its not gonna happen

    • R.D. Walker says:

      As a practical matter, it would take 3/4 of state legislatures to ratify it. Since most state legislatures are controlled by Republicans, I wouldn’t worry about it.

  4. notamobster says:

    Luckily the ratifications aren’t weighted in the same manner as the electoral college or congressional seats.

  5. Ray Davies says:

    There may be enough people to remember why we have a term limit president. FDR. His body was barely cold before they had the amendment passed

  6. rider says:

    Actually I like it – there is no way this will pass & it shows their true colors.

  7. PhoneGuy says:

    Good luck with that proposed amendment. It will take a 2/3 vote in both the House and Senate before being sent to the states. We may want to check, however, if someone in each state legislature hasn’t submitted a similar bill.

    Of course, a potential 3rd term may keep Obama from “getting down to doing his real job now that he doesn’t have to worry about political consequences” which appears to be the reasoning that the uninformed voter is now using as an excuse for reelecting him to a 2nd term.
