Quite a shame FDR did not follow Washington's example then but still does not change the fact that was once a voluntary action was changed by law due to the abuse of it by FDR.


Be that as it may, your claim that Obama "has no damn clue whatsoever the presidential term limits were instituted after the last great democratic savior FDR." is incorrect, because Obama specifically said Washington established the TRADITION, not the law. And he's right.

Your hatred of the man often clouds your ability to reason.

Presidential term limits was passed by congress in 1947 ratified by the states in 1951 and other president's sought to break "tradition" set by Washington.

Due to FDR had Roosevelt followed with tradition term limits would still be voluntary.

Right. So now you admit that Obama was correct by citing Washington as the person who established the tradition.

Glad we could clear that up.

All of you posters saying that Obama is a dolt, has no clue, has no idea of the law, etc. are totally wrong. He is well aware of the law and is not the idiot he seems to be. He is an elitist and a tyrant and is hell bent on throwing America into despotism with his dictatorship.

It is said that those who do not learn from history are destined to repeat it, well people better get their history books out and start reading about the rise of dictators throughout history. The sad thing is that Obama was totally honest about his intentions when he was on the campaign trail. He repeatedly stated that he wanted to fundamentally transform America. By definition of the word "fundamentally" that would mean he wants to change America down to our fundamental principles.

The US Constitution is the fundamental document that makes our nation what it is.

What Obama is doing should come as no surprise to anyone since he basically ran on the platform of destroying our fundamental principles.

He is both. He's a dolt with no clue of the law AND he's an elitist and a dictator-wannabe hell bent on throwing America into the toilet. He can be both .. and IMHO he is. He certainly isn't 'hope, change, unity or transparency'.
