He's so good, so uplifting ...

... that -- wait for it -- a Democrat representative has already introduced a bill to repeal the 22nd Amendment!!

With President-elect Barack Obama set to take the oath of office to begin his first term, one New York Congressman wants to make it possible for him to one day serve a third. Representative Jose Serrano (D) has introduced a bill in the House to abolish the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution, which limits presidents to two consecutive terms or ten years in office. (Source.)

Let's see ... we've already seen calls for a national holiday for the guy, putting his likeness on Mt. Rushmore, how Obama will pay for folks' gas and mortgages, how a state's financial woes aren't worth worrying about because Barack is about to become president, and most recently how tomorrow is a "sacred day."

I tell 'ya what. If Obama really can pay for my car's gas, my mortgage, and make Delaware's financial woes disappear, then by ALL MEANS repeal the 22nd Amendment so we can re-elect him for a 3rd term.

Nevertheless, if the next four years prove a disaster, and a Republican wins in 2012, how long will it take Serrano to submit another bill that retracts this one?

Actually, he did submit the same bill in 2005.

And I support that bill -- and the premise behind it -- and have since 1985.

So, Serrano is behind this whole premise totally non-ideologically?? If so, bully for him.

Personally, I'm on the fence on the topic. I can understand your viewpoint; however, I'm more inclined to go with a one, six-year term for prez. It'd do away with perpetual campaigning (for the incumbent, at least) and allow him to concentrate exclusively on governing.
