For those to lazy to look it up that is the Amendment that limits the President to two terms.
Why in the hell would you want to repeal that one?... you guys are all about term limits... and I agree with you on that.
Talk about one out of left field.
I am OPPOSED to term limits other then the will of the people as STATED by the US Constitution. If the people were dumb enough to want Clinton for 3 or 4 terms they should have gotten to vote for him.
The people are the decider of term limits via the VOTE.
George Washington set the precedence for two terms for President. Even though it was not specifically set out in the Constitution all the succeeding Presidents followed that precedence until FDR came along. And it was because of FDR that the amendment was instituted by these United States as allowed bu the US Constitution.
We do not want a career President. Look at Castro. It is good for the country to get new leadership ever 4 or 8 years, giving a new perspective in that office.
I would tend to agree and do not like term limits myself but repealing an amendment is a major deal and I cannot see the benefits of doing so. If the president is limited to two terms then so be it. Would you honestly be okay with a 4 term Obama?
I think there should be term limits for members of Congress.
I'm opposed to term limits. To me, it always reminds me of something Dennis Miller said in the days when he was still funny... that basically, term limits are saying "stop me before i vote again".
while there is an advantage to incumbancy, and i understand why some people like term limits, i think if you're happy with the person representing you, you should be able to keep them representing you.
but you do know that if there were no presidential term limits, bill clinton would be president again, right?
I personally do not believe he would have survived the Housing crash. And that him as President would have ensured a Republican Congress. Bill Clinton knew when he had to work with the Opposing party as Obama doe NOT know when to.
the economy wouldn't have crashed if bush and the repubs weren't in power because the de-regulation wouldn't have occurred and there wouldn't have been two wars of choice at the same time as the bush tax cuts.
i think uncle bill would have done just fine.
