And If I Ran For a Third Term, I Could Win

Looks like Democrats Presidents like third terms! Just like simple majority rule(Nuclear option) in important socialism legislation in Congress! Even The Republicans like it! United We Stand means little even in Congress!


President Obama told the African Union Tuesday that he felt he had been a "pretty good" president and if he were allowed to run for a third term, he'd probably be victorious.

They assert that reversing the nuclear option would not benefit them in the long term because Democrats would likely trigger it once again if they reclaimed the majority while their party controlled the White House.

And if a Republican wins the presidency in 2016, they want that officeholder to be able to shape his or her administration and the judicial branch with as free a hand as Obama has enjoyed during the final three years of his term.

    Congress was sick of Roosevelt and his tyrannical form of government so they put the two-term restriction out as soon as the old coots corpse was cooled.

    And he probably would win and even if he didn't the current republican leadership is no better. That's why I say Bring On Trump!!!!! Let's shake this thing up before it's too late. The hell with getting along, its over rated. We should never have approached the Iranian problem as a negotiation but rather an ultimatum. we have the power to stop them now and we should step up and do our duty as the only real superpower in the world today but there are no real men or women in DC. Just sissys consumed with guilt or trators who sell out America for personal gain.

    What's a little thing like an amendment against a third term. He didn't have to be a citizen to get his first two terms.
