How long until Left calls for Obama 3rd term?
11/12/201 | Al Gore Vidal

Posted on 11/12/2012 6:10:33 AM PST by Al Gore Vidal

He couldn't get it done in one term. We all know he won't get it done with a second.

So how long until the Left starts talking about an Obama third term in order to finish the job?

And no, I'm not joking with this question.

I keep thinking about Obama saying that he would be the President for “the next 8-10 years”.

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha. Keep electing weepers like the current Speaker and the answer is s resound NEVER EVER. The GOP elite will never go after the King of the Takers, not after their loss on last Tues. Obama is out trumpeting his "Mandate" to raise taxes, and Boner has already said he is willing to reach across the aisle. DOES that sound to you like a political party that would ever ever embark of IMPEACHMENT? The King could murder a family member inside the White House and nothing would happen.

IIRC early in Obama’s first term there was some loony congressman who introduced legislation to amend the Constitution to enable more than two terms. Don’t know where that is, but it would not surprise me to see some movement in that area.

Comrade Obama’s third term is a lot more likely than the GOP growing a testicle and impeaching him.

I say it's a no-brainer. He'll sign an Executive Order declaring the 22nd Amendment null and void. Problem solved! Who's gonna stop him?

That was my first prediction after he stole the presidency - that dems would change the law so he could serve a third term.

Not going to happen, for starters. Obama is not nearly left enough for the left.

Instead, most such discussion centers on the hope for a more “progressive” candidate in 2016.

The Supreme Court will probably rule in a 5-4 vote, with John Roberts voting for the majority, that the 22nd Amendment can be interpreted as allowing the president to run for as many terms as he wants. Obama will eventually retire in 2033 after serving his sixth term.

If the kenyan wants a third term he will decree it. Congress has approved of government-by-decree already. Congress has also given the president power to kill or otherwise silence his enemies so he doesn’t have to put up with any more opposition than he chooses. We are all Venezuelans now.

He is done in 2016 regardless. Stop with the nonsense talk. Even he wouldn’t want a third term. If Clinton didn’t and he would have loved it, Obama won’t.

Even with hispanic participation in the American electoral process up, there are not the cajones in DC to even bring impeachment to the floor in the house...

I have a feeling (a good one) that Obama’s model wife, will run for President. Then after that, their lovely daughters will run. So really, we're looking at 50 years of Obamas. Now that is real scary for our future.

Exactly! Who is going to stop him.??? No one. All other branches are powerless. What, Boehner the Boner is going to send the Sgt at Arms to arrest him????LOL! The Senate doesn't care what he does. He controls the military. The SC have no power to stop him! John Roberts will hit him with his lollipop?

I don't think Obama is smart enough to even understand that NO ONE can stop him doing anything he wants!!!

You're wrong. Clinton was a marxist and a muslim. He was just a narcissistic sex maniac interested in his own post-presidential legacy.In all seriousness, if he announces tomorrow that guns are outlawed and will be confiscated, who's going to stop him except for minor NRA guerrilla resistance which the army will put down. Don't think the army would follow orders???? I'm betting they would for a whole host of reasons.

The major leftist media outlets would be over joyed and supportive. Resistance would be deadly and futile. Just sayin'

It really doesn’t matter, because the GOP has no one to run against anyone they run, they have no ideas, not even a single clue.

""IIRC early in Obama’s first term there was some loony congressman who introduced legislation to amend the Constitution to enable more than two terms""

IIRC it was Jose Serrano from the Bronx. It met with quite a bit of approval in NYC Dem circles but no one put his/her name to his motion. And yes Serrano is loony in a non enetertaining way.

He won't need a third term.

His only goal is to overwhelm the system.

Won't be long now.

I had read Biden wanted a go at it. Will Hillary try again?

And I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought about an Obama 3rd term. I would not be surprised to wake up tomorrow and hear Pelosi or Reid asking for an end to “term limits” on Presidents what with the number of Rino’s and Democratic majority

Impeachment talk is racist — You can’t overturn the election—besides you would need to control the Senate to do that.
As for a 3rd Term—Yes it will happen—and a 4th as well, to fix the mess left by George Bush. Best move from the GOP, is give Obama enough rope to hang himself. He will in time. We must tarnish the man—not his policies.

He will do what the muzzies want to do in Egypt, knock down the idols (pyramids and such). Wait for a congressional break and knock down the capitol dome (he ignores them anyway) to make room for his new 36 hole golf course.

He knows. He has tried it out with his Amnesty law that he promulgated all by himself and other laws he has changed or refused to enforce. Congress, even the TParty new guys form 2010 did not complain and that is the critical point- Congres has thereby ceded total power to the Executive and has abrogated the Constitution by so doing.

The military is being decapitated bit by bit as competent and/or patriotic officers are forced out to be replaced by homosexuals and other "reliable" types and will probably present no resistance though, as a Leftist, he will remain uneasy about the military until he has reduced it to token status and replaced it internally with his new Red ArmyCivilian Defense Force. That is pretty much how it happened in Russia in 1917 and after with the difference that our own Lenin has not had to storm the Winter Palace. We elected him. Lenin reneged on all Russia's foreign commitments and even ceded territory as part of the process of eliminating the perceived threat from the military. Olenin is doing the same and probably does not oppose the "Fiscal Cliff." He can blame the gut shot to the economy on the Republicans and he cripples the military, especially the Navy. Our enemies will surge in the world and Europe will probably collapse to be overrun by Mohammedans. If invasion and occupation does not happen then the contraction will leave Olenin room to consolidate his power internally and begin to confiscate industries to "save jobs." And so it goes.

Will not happen. It would require amending the Constitution, which requires approval of 3/4 of the States.
