Originally posted by BartIVFortunately, I fill pretty good about the 2008 elections. I think elections will go forward and "Bush & friends" will have walked away with billions in tax payer dollars for protecting america.

It's probable that he'll stay in office by saying something like that:
``We are at war with terrorists. It's an extraordinary situation and we need extraordinaries means. We must protect our country from the terrorists, and I'm the best to suit this responsability. Heil Bush! ``

I hope he does because he is a good President and it would be nice if he was the ONE leader of the world.
To find the origin of Presidential term limits, we have to look no further than our first American President, George Washington, who declined a third chance at office, deferring to the belief that our democracy must have an orderly transition of power, to set the Constitution in stone. From that time forward, even with our Constitution lacking such prohibition, all of our Presidents had adhered to Washington's two-term limit precedent...at least until the phenomena of FDR came along. But Roosevelt was not to finish this fourth term, dying less than one hundred days after the inauguration and leaving his office to Vice President Harry Truman. In 1947, the Congress passed the 22nd Amendment, cementing the two-term limit into law but excluded Truman from the confines of these limitations. He was reelected for a second term in 1948 and could have run for a third, had he so desired, but opted out early on, before serious campaigning began. The Amendment was ratified by the states in 1951. www.usconstitution.net...
But "smart weapons" -- the military calls them precision-guided munitions (PGMs) -- weren't widely used in 1991.
Only 244 laser-guided bombs and 88 cruise missiles hit Iraq, out of a total of some 250,000 bombs dropped during the war.
