Prediction: Obama and Democrat Party will seek to have the Presidential 2-term limit law changed to enable him to remain in office. Wanted to be the first to predict that here.
Even if they wanted to do this, I find it hard to believe that they'd be willing to spend the time and effort to get the amendment changed. Heck -- even a lot of Democrats with political aspirations would be dead-set against this.
Won’t this require an amendment to the Constitution? I just can’t see enough senators or governors that would touch this. I can’t see the populace putting up with such a move.
They already figured out how to rig the elections
easy when you are allowed to get away with 141% turnouts, just program the machines with what you need
That is not just a law to be repealed, it’s the 22nd Ammendment.
the machines will spit out whatever vote is needed to pass it, like the 141% turnout in St. Lucie County Florida
They aren’t being chllenged now, the next election will have 10x worse fraud
I would think even the Demoncrats would be against this due to their own egotistical aspirations.
Probably already plotting how to get it done.
2/3 of House, 2/3 of Senate, and 3/4ths of the State Legislatures would need to agree to this by Constitutional amendment.
Maybe a totally packed Supreme Court could convince everyone that the 22nd Amendment was null and void because of umbras and penumbras and references to Scottish Law but I doubt it.
If you look up the bill histories of each Congress, you’ll see that frequently this is proposed right off. Lieberman D-Ct proposed such an amendment right after he got through defending Billy Clinton.
I would live to be a fly on the Clinton’s wall if he tries.
Where was there 141% turnout?
Sorry, on the Clinton’s wall. Lol
141% turnout even 160% turnout.
Some are too quick to conclude this man legally won
Or just ignore the Constitution like usual. The Supreme Court will rubberstamp it by saying that the matter was non-judicable and something for Congress to enforce.
Maybe not if he can take control of the court, which is very possible considering the age of the justices. He could make the argument that the amendment was unconstitutional and his court would agree thus nullifying the amendment. Who is going to argue with a 6-3 or 7-2 decision?
Michelle obama has already said it. She mentioned their “first 10 years” in office in 2008. I haven’t been able to find record of it, but I’ve never forgotten it.
