When I saw the news from Barbara Espinosa on Twitter this morning, I thought it was some kind of crazy joke:
@rsmccain BREAKING NEWS HJ RES 15 TO REMOVE TERM LIMITS FOR PRESIDENTTHE FIRST STEP IN PRESIDENT OBAMA FOR A THIRD TERM
— Barbara Espinosa (@1Barbara1) January 6, 2013
Crazy as it is, however, it’s not a joke: Rep. Jose Serrano (D-N.Y.) on Friday re-introduced as H.J. 15 the same bill he offered last year, “Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment” — i.e., to end the two-term limit on the presidency, enabling Obama to be “President fo Life.”
The Twitchy Team is all over it, but as Barbara points out, there’s not a snowball’s chance in hell this this thing could ever pass the ratification process. Of course, the Democrat Party’s contempt for the Constitution is so complete, they don’t care. They’d declare martial law, prohibit dissent as a “crime against the people” and govern by decree if it weren’t for the fact that conservatives are armed to the teeth. That probably explains why Obama is the greatest gun salesman in American history.
UPDATE: Worth noticing that it was a young friend of ours whose Tweet helped get this story onto the Drudge Report:
