Obama Maneuvering For An Unconstitutional Third Term As President!
“Please”, say it isn’t so! However the signals being sent by the administration seem to be indicating that the “unthinkable” may actually be in the works, now that madam Hillary has once again stepped in it…into another potential and growing scandal.
And the “single-man” waving the lantern on this potential “train-wreck” is none other than our hapless Vice President Joe Biden, speaking recently at an event a few weeks ago in Iowa.
“Those seeking to lead the nation should protect and defend and run, yes run, on what we’ve done; own what we have done. Stand for what we have done, acknowledge what we have done, and be judged on what we have done. … Some say that would amount to a third term of the president. I call it sticking with what works and what we ought to do.”
Obviously under current law it would be legally impossible for a president to seek a third term, however we’ve already witnessed this administration’s unbridled and lawless overreach, and it’s ability to circumvent the rule of law, without any consequences, thus the power grab becomes all the more plausible now that Clinton’s potential quest for the presidency seems to have stalled.
In fact some may argue a third term scenario has already begun as early as last summer, when Obama spoke at an event, comparing himself to FDR.
“I would put my administration up against any prior administration since FDR. We didn’t ask for the challenges that we face, but we don’t shrink from them either. And the truth is, it will take more than a few years for us to solve challenges that have built up over the decades. It will require common effort, shared responsibility, and the kind of bold, persistent experimentation that Franklin Roosevelt pursued during the only crisis worse than this one.”
And it’s no secret that the Clinton’s and the Obama’s have little regard for one another, and that Hillary if elected, would in all probability seek her husband’s advice and counsel on many of the today’s issues, and although Bill Clinton is a progressive he’s also a pragmatic politician, who actually worked well within a bipartisan environment and accomplishing some impressive legislation with a Republican majority in congress.
Of course the political pundits are discounting any third term attempt by Obama, citing a series of legal and constitutional hurdles that need to be addressed not to mention the overwhelming push back by the congress, however if recent history is any indication of how congress reacts to an administration that has time again redefined their rolls to that of a second string tram sitting on the sidelines, silent, then I wouldn’t put much stock in their attempt to act as our Founders had hoped, with resolute conviction in preserving the rule of law..
