I read the first 3 paragraphs, then started searching for barf bags.

In part, the article reads or can be summarized as stating ... In The Washington Post, Jonathan Zimmerman, a history professor from NYU, has written an article claiming that all of America’s problems would be soloved–GET THIS–if only we would allow Barack Obama to run for a third term!

He wants to amend the Constitution and abolish presidential term limits.


I bet the intellectual elite would agree with prof. Zimmerman's conclusions. At least the really smart guys who say everyone else is a dummy. And, why shouldn't America have four more years ? Our BO has done such a bang-up job. Bush incurred, and rightfully so, a good bashing. However, our BO has even outdone Bush and performed worse and, on top of that, our BO has created even longer lasting problems. So, why not sink another torpedo in a crippled ship, the USS America.

Abolish term limits? We should be going the other way- one six-year term for any elected office.

You're calling him a "mighty hunter?"

Personally, good luck in amending the Constitution, sir...

It sounds like a good subject for a college term paper.

What makes anyone think he'd want another term?

The same thing was said about GWB. Probably every two-term Pres.

Due to Obama's unique Accessory connection when He is done being President here he can go become a President For Life in His Fathers Country if He and that Country wants that.

That has already been done. They created the Presidential Term Limits because of President FDR.

The last amendment took 200(!) years to ratify.
