    Of course it can not happen. There is ZERO chance the 22nd Amendment would get repealed. Thus there is only 2 terms.

    There should be term limits on congress as well. Limit them to two consecutive terms and only eligible for subsequent terms after being out of office for at least one election cycle.

    It's a Washington Post Opinion piece, a trial balloon being floated , I noted the reference to Ronald Reagan but none of the several suggestions for Billy Blyth going for a third term. I am convinced , historically, that Roosevelt's third and fourth terms should never have happened. I also think that two terms is more than enough for any Chief Executive.

    So far the folks "up there" have shown total disregard for the constitution and legitimate laws passed by Congress. They really don't care that "constitutionally" the states have to vote amendments in or out. So IMHO yes, it could happen.

    Not a chance, at least not short term. The electorate will not change the the 22nd A for Obama who is sinking in popularity.

    If this were to happen it would be with a President that would have to be 20 times more popular than Clinton during his first term and have a .00005% unemployment rate with the average wage of a worker being 50,000 a year and no deficit.

    In short...it will never hapen.

    I agree in the “for life” but it would not be in a political office.

    Our current "king" would really like for this to happen. I'm not sure this country can survive 3 more years of his reign. A term after that is unimaginable.

    This is the ball park I'm in too ShooterGranny. Nothing in the constitution has stopped them from anything so far. If anything it's getting worse, even with the popularity going down it doesn't seem to matter one bit. Now the news people are even kept out of a lot of thing and I see the freedom of speech being stifled. Even photographing has been stopped unless you have permission USA Today Calls Out White House Propaganda, Will No Longer Publish Obama Admin's "Official" Press Photos - The Free Patriot

    Also, there is chatter about the dems pushing for a libertarian to run knowing full and well this would take away from the GOP vote like what happened in Va. I consider myself a libertarian but will not vote that way for this very reason.

    While it could happen, it couldn't happen in time for King Barack to benefit from it. It would require the repeal of the 22nd Amendment. To do that it would require 2/3 approval by both the house and senate, then 3/4 approval by the states.

    To the best of my knowledge, only 1 Constitutional Amendment has ever been repealed, that being the 18th which was Prohibition.

    We desperately need a reduction in the amount of terms and total years ALL representative's serve at the state and national level ....... effectivly removing politics as a profession and eventually removing the money from D.C..
    The easy way is always mined.

    This notion is floated every now and then and it frightens me to think that there are people out there who think it is a good idea. If anything, presidents should be limited to one term IMO.

    In their first term, it seems like every two term president has spend the last two years of that term setting themselves up for re-election, rather than doing their job. Once re-elected, they let it go to their heads and feel they have a "mandate" to pursue their agenda. Lies, executive orders, whatever it takes. They might have a different attitude if they knew they only had four years free rent in the WH.

    Something people here might find interesting; This weekend I read an article on huffington post about Diane Fienstien saying that we must pass stricter patriot act stuff. That the sky was falling if we didnt, etc.

    What was interesting was the feedback from the forum on that article; Everyone opposed what she wanted, and pretty much EVERYONE wanted her gone. Comments about how she had been there forever, and time to put her (and all the others who had been in office) forever, out to pasture.

    I think the last thing ANYONE wants now is to make it where we CANT get rid of duds in office. I was glad to see bush go, and I will be glad to see obama go.

    Of course, this time I wont say "It cant get any worse", lol.

    I hear ya. I was in that camp, I never thought I'd look back on Bush as actually not that bad by comparison. Especially since I was of the "try him for treason" mindset over the patriot act stuff. Never would have thought the next guy would make the patriot act look like child's play.
