Presidential term limits: necessary
and right, or bad for democracy?

Yahoo News, by Chris Nichols

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/30/2013 7:43:41 AM

The time has come to end presidential term limits, because continuing the restrictions on how long one can serve in the country´s highest office is bad for the United States, a university professor argued this week. In an opinion piece published in the Washington Post, Jonathan Zimmerman, a history and education professor at New York University, says deciding whether a president deserves a third, fourth or more terms should be left to the American people, not the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution, which placed a two-term limit on the position. As background, here´s an excerpt from the amendment, ratified in

Anyone who believes that Obama is not behind these "third term" feelers has his head in the sand. That will be his next ploy. I belive they really do not want to leave Washington. Or the White House.

No.

I love these ´news´ sources that are putting Zimmerman´s mask on these stories rather than having the stones to author their own in agreement in agreement with him.
I mean after all, he IS a history and education professor! He´s way smarter that you and me but not quite as smart as Ojangles.

Why does Yahoo News´ Chris Nichols feel it is newsworthy to recycle a silly WaPo opinion piece by an idiot professor nobody named Zimmerman?
Just to keep the stupid trial balloon alive in case you missed the first article?
A 3rd term for Barry would be a direct violation of the Constitution and the 22nd Amendment could never be legally rescinded. This path by Barry would lead to widespread insurrection.

If the founders made any error, it is the idea that collectively, the common dunces on the street will make a wise choice. We have seen over and over this isn´t true.
If we want to fool around with the constitution, I´d rather see the vote only going to those who have a vested interest in the nation´s success, i.e land or business owners.

Why is it only the libs / communists / socialists who float this every time? Bill Clinton´s people did the same thing as they flirted with the idea. It has been written widely that Barry would try this and that he and the Mooch have no plans to give up this power.

It´s funny how liberals want to revert to what the unamended constitution said in the 1790s, but on every old issue they want to trample it asunder.

No thanks, the American People Spoke when we added the 22nd Amendment.

But for the sake of argument, if we had no term limits, we would also need a means to vote no confidence to get rid of their sorry hiny.

I think liberals should find tiny little countries, take their resources and money and develop the utopia they seek.
Take Bill Clinton and make him eternal emperor of Zipperwainia. Obama could be eternal, all masterful leader of Liewhackostan.
I don´t understand why liberals even tolerate living in the United States with the history of our founding being the base for the nation.
Communist liberals ruin everything they touch in the name of feeling good about themselves.
I´m sick of these people changing rules to fit their agenda.

The unvarying and barely disguised aim of the radical Left has always been and will always be one party rule, i.e. the dictatorship of the proletariat as described by Marx and Engels.

That this profoundly and dangerously despotic fantasy should be resurrected and floated as a trial balloon at this particular time and under these existing circumstances speaks volumes about the deep dread and distress of the radical Left, which has begun to realize that it is in danger of losing its death grip upon American institutions, and that only something akin to the indefinite extension of quasi-dictatorial presidential powers by a committed radical Leftist is likely to retrieve its prospects.

Continued to those fortunate enough to go to college, where the indoctrination continues. The ones to poor to further education, I mean indoctrination, are on the indoctrination roles of the Federal handout system and will always vote for the commiecrat party. And thats the way it is

Let the people vote them out is always the argument against term limits. And, that would make sense if we didn´t have rampant vote fraud. I have no doubt that, even with Zippy´s low polling numbers, he would win a third term just by vote fraud. No, in this day and age, you either eliminate vote fraud or you have term limits.

A lot of his young NYU students like him, his classes are "entertaining", and he doesn´t use books much. And he´s so "busy" that he often hands off students with questions to his grad student aides. This student was obviously underwhelmed:

This class was very disappointing. We did not use the textbook and the professor told random stories of his life, religion, and sexuality. His humor can also be offensive and his use of profanity was inappropriate. He seems better suited for writing books than teaching and interacting with students.

Another accused him of teaching feelings rather than history.

Only tinkering I would be willing to entertain would be for reverting to the original intent of the FF´s of appointing Senators instead of electing them, and term limits for every body.

If it is good for the presidential goose, it is good enough for the congressional gander.

I am still on the fence regarding term limits for the Supreme Court and other critical judicial positions.

Sorry for the second comment, but another reason I would accept for tinkering with the Constitution on is restricting the right to vote to people who actually earn a paycheck and are not getting money from the government, either Fed or State.

If we get rid of the taker segment of the voters we might stand a chance to get some adults back in office again.

Two terms was a mistake to begin with. Several other methods should be considered A single term of five years? Six?

My choice would be one four-year term with the elections held in odd numbered years so that it never coincided with congressional elections. Thus 2005 and 2009 and 2013 would be presidential election years.

Deal with the Congress too. Life time limits. Eight years total time in the House. Twelve in the Senate.

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police?

Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons.
