‘President for Life’ Barack Obama?

obama_toga

Hail Caesar? Not likely.

A bill was quietly introduced on Friday and sent to committee which would allow President Obama to serve a third, fourth or any number of terms.

According to GovTrack.US, U.S. Rep. Jose’ Serrano, D-N.Y., introduced House joint resolution 15 on Jan. 4, which proposes “an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.”

The measure has since been referred to committee.

Possibly Serrano got the idea from listening to a C-SPAN caller suggest that Obama should serve for life. Whatever the source, the very idea is insane.

Gabriella Hoffman agrees, and tweeted: “Govt Track proposing an amendment to abolish prez term limits? HELL NO. America can’t afford to have a dictator. govtrack.us/congress/bills…”

Chad Brand agreed and tweeted, “So, congressman Jose Serrano from Dist 15 in New York introduces resolution 15 to repeal 22nd amendment to constitution. What insanity!”

Of course, as others on the Twitterverse noted, while any moron can introduce a bill, it would still have to pass both houses of Congress and be ratified by two-thirds of the states. Good luck with that one.

Read the bill at GovTrack.US.

Hat tip to the TwitchyTeam.

    Do a little homework. Serranno has been introducing the same proposal every two years since 1997, including the years Bush was president. A number of others have introduced similar proposals, including Mitch McConnell in 1995. Yes, THAT Mitch McConnell (Clinton was president at the time), In fact, this idea had been brought up more than twenty times by various legislators over the past two decades, and has never been seriously considered. More right wing alarmist rhetoric.

    • Rex

      Thanks for tell us !

  • Mike Smollon

    And Serranno got the idea from C-SPAN? What a load of crap.Where did Mitch McConnell get the idea, then?
