Regardless of his political approval ratings, Obama could expect Republican senators such as Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and John McCain (Ariz.) to attack the agreement (to repeal term limits.) But if Obama could run again, would he be facing such fervent objections from Sens. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Robert Menendez (D-N.J.)?
Probably not. Democratic lawmakers would worry about provoking the wrath of a president who could be reelected. Thanks to term limits, though, they’ve got little to fear.
Nor does Obama have to fear the voters, which might be the scariest problem of all. If he chooses, he could simply ignore their will. And if the people wanted him to serve another term, why shouldn’t they be allowed to award him one?
It’s time to put that power back where it belongs. Barack Obama should be allowed to stand for re election just as citizens should be allowed to vote for — or against — him. Anything less diminishes our leaders and ourselves.
Sure, the democratic party could choose to put him up for a 3rd term, but it would be DOA by the courts within days if not minutes...
Testing the waters, so to speak, which just means if we are even here for another presidential election that we can expect the Progs to ramp up their anti constitutional agenda and destruction of this country even more!
If that were ever to even be considered it would be enough for me to move out of country.
This won't stop his most ardent fans and supporters, but even then, that's just a small percentage of the population.
Hillary would be worse for the US than a third term of Obama, in my humble opinion.
