They've started it - "Obama taking Third Term!"

Here, the R's have started that Obama is taking a third term. It was discussed on the local R radio this morning. He has a secret economic force he's using. And a warning, that Obama is using this force and taking our liberties away by a tyrant, Obama. Sounds like a pitch for an investment company - how to avoid Obama ... etc. Obama is going to partner with dictators. And Obama will even take a 4th term. I bet Rove and the Koch brothers are partnering on this one.

http://pro.stansberryresearch.com/1210THIRDLIA/OPSINB07/

It never stops, does it, only the R's can save the universe. The GOP is such a dreadful party. Now, I bet a lot of poor RW republicans hear this and believe it hook line and sinker.

6. I guess they know nothing about the 22nd Amendment...

The Twenty-second Amendment of the United States Constitution sets a term limit for election to the office of President of the United States. The Congress passed the amendment on March 21, 1947. It was ratified by the requisite number of states on February 27, 1951.

Section 1. No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this article was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.

Stansberry & Associates Investment Research, LLC produced it. It is a blatantly RW piece (and this is the company that "paid" to mass e-mail to Newt Gingrich's database). The OP cited it in reference to a discussion he heard today, but the video was made and posted long before Sreedhar's blog. I made no assertion as to Sreedhar's political affiliation, only a clarification to your inference that he and HuffPo represent a Democrat viewpoint on this issue.

So what exactly is your position on this issue?

55. Yep:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=364x327940

Everything that the Bush Administration is doing is pointing toward turning the U.S. into a DICTATORSHIP. And I believe it could very well happen in the next two years. There are several indicators pointing toward this theory:

- Bush has been testing public reaction, especially among opposition, against atrocities committed by his Administration: unlawful seizure, prisoner torture, silencing any form of opposition in the executive branch, violating 1st amendment rights (limiting free speech), violating separation of church and state, violating 4th amendment rights (warrentless wire-taps, domestic spying), plundering of the treasury to divide it among select corporations and the wealthy, the list goes on and on. How has the public reacted to his dictator-like behavior? A few protests, but no serious inquiries or investigations (save one) into his unlawful behavior. The public has been amazingly silent. The two people who have caused him the most political damage: Cindy Sheehan (who survived a terrible swift-boating attempt, but they are still trying) and ironically, Ashcroft and Comey who appointed Patrick Fitzgerald as an independent prosecutor with the power equal to the Attorney General (i.e. he can't be fired).

- Probably the most egregious actions by this administration has been the dismantling of our national defense. This is one of the biggest changes that has slipped under the radar without notice until Katrina hit the Gulf Coast. An administration who appears completely hawkish would seem to want to build the military up to its greatest strengths and be the most daunting, powerful military on the history of the planet. This would seem to be unquestionably true, especially given the attacks on the U.S. on 9/11. However, what has really happened has the dismantling of our defense that will be replaced primarily by Private Military Corporations that Bush can control. Don't believe it? Here are some facts:
* The Reserve Forces ARE DEPLETED. We have no reservists remaining to fight wars with. This number was exhausted in 2004. This is why the military started calling up soldiers (retired, civilians) in the Ready Reserve back in 2004.
* The National Guard in many states ARE DEPLETED. These soldiers who signed up for NATIONAL DEFENSE, have been abused and forced to serve MULTIPLE TOURS in Iraq, a war that has NOTHING TO DO WITH DEFENSE of this nation. This point was made painfully apparent in the Katrina response... the Louisiana N.G. could not handle the response because the majority of them were either over in Iraq, wounded disabled or dead.
* The improper equipping of our troops has caused an unnecessarily LARGE NUMBER OF CASUALTIES, further depleting the capabilities of our troops.
* The Military has been UNABLE TO FULFILL its recruiting needs since 2003.
* Money allocated to our soldiers has been redirected (ILLEGALLY) toward military contractors.
* The severing of the head of our military (firing of generals like General Shinsheki) in order to get a "YES-MAN" mentality going... the military chiefs will no longer question the desired actions of the president, even if it means disaster
* Defense programs like the missile shield, while properly funded, have lacked CRITICAL OVERSIGHT, and so they have wasted BILLIONS of taxpayer money for inadequate defense.
* Mismanagement, and I would say INTENTIONAL mismanagement, of Defense Programs such as FEMA. Astronomical (and unknown) amounts of money flowed into Homeland Security to secure our homeland. FEMA, being part of the new H.S. Department, has shown just how badly that money has been abused. Complete lack of management by CRONIES who are managing VAST AMOUNTS of taxpayer money. Many in the GOP and Administration have talked in the past of dismantling such programs... is it any surprise that they have succeeded while robbing the treasury? This was all laid bare in Katrina. What has been done in response to this?
* The lack of execution to secure our borders and ports, control illegal immigration, protect our Nuclear and Chemical Facilities and to aid in the protection of those cities with highest need is a clear demonstration that Bush wants our national defense to fail so people will no longer trust the ability of our military or defense departments to protect us. The mass cry-out will be to cut spending instead of the proper solution which is removal of the administration and proper oversight. Bush will be one step away from privatizing the military.

- Using Abramoff, he controlled own members of his party who might object to his unlawful behavior and side with the opposition against him to actually block the movement and direction of our government toward a dictatorship. Those who are involved have money and promises of power, be sure. They are tightly controlling the weaker members of their party through money and blackmail. This is now coming to light.

- The Patriot Act 2 will silence opposition completely and finally complete the removal of several fundamental civil rights. If this law is passed, this will be one of the keystones by which Bush becomes dictator.

- The current tracking of personal information by our government, domestic spying and warehousing of communications, financial transactions, purchasing patterns, a clear violation of the 4th Amendment, will be used against those who might appear to HAVE THOUGHTS about speaking out against the administration. Preemptive silencing will occur. Individuals will be made into examples (the M.O. of the Bush administration).

- The use of controllable e-Voting and voter disenfranchisement will ensure that those the Bush administration controls, REGARDLESS OF POLITICAL PARTY, will obtain the seats to the Congress in 2006, locking in the final steps required to coronate Bush as King.

- The expansion of presidential power has gone unchallenged. Until those he controls are no longer in a position to block serious challenges and impeachment, he will continue to expand his power. To further secure his position, just in case 2006 elections do not go as he plans, he has instilled a Chief Justice and an Associate Justice on the supreme court who will support his claims to expanded executive power.

- The administration continues to use fear as a way to control the public. They make slanderous, libel statements such as "Democrats want to provide therapy to the terrorists", "Democratic criticism is aiding and giving comfort (treason) to the enemy", and finally "Democrat talking points are terrorist messages". They make claims that Democrats in power will lead to a terrorist attack (which is actually a threat by the administration). The administration is the real terrorist organization: by definition, controlling the public through fear IS TERRORISM.

The question has been raised before, that Bush may try to stay president for a third term. Many have dismissed it due to the un-Constitutional aspects of it. But when has that stopped this administration? Is anyone in his own party going to stop him? If you think so, you missed a couple of points above. Bush has a tight leash on the Congress. He is power-crazy, and he's proved that. He is actively expanding the powers of the presidency and he is going unchallenged for doing so. Bush is on record at least 6 times as saying that the U.S. would be much better as a dictatorship (so long as he is the dictator). Does anyone really think Bush would be installing all this power into the executive branch and then let someone else, let alone a Democrat, take control? Hell no, he intends to play for keeps. And so far, he's way ahead of the public, who is still drowsy from 9/11 and won't be able to wake up until it is far too late.

61. I believe in free speech and all of that, but what if when broadcasting to

large numbers of people on clearly a large-scale public media one had to deal in FACTS?

That said, I don't know how it would all work, but so often the media in this country is filled with lies and distortions so as to feed their money machine.

I am so fed up with hearing blatant lies and distortions trying to brainwash the country, and while we recognize it as propaganda many will not ... I also think some of these outfits get broadcasting licenses far too easily.

59. Oh, hell,

there were people ON THIS BOARD claiming Bush would establish Marshal Law and TAKE a third term. Quite adamant about it, iirc. The disillusioned are everywhere.

63. I wasn't on here then, but I sure recall well wondering just how far Bush was

going to take his regime. ... and how he had a blank check it seemed to do anything he wanted.

I recall wondering when the financial meltdown started if he would declare martial law and somehow stay on as commander and chief (based on his national security he used all of the time) ... because of the financial crisis and the wars he started.

66. Part of the ridiculous text:

Although I'm writing this letter before the 2012 election, I already know Obama will be re-elected to a second term. I'm certain he, or at least his proxy, will also be re-elected again in 2016, for a nearly unprecedented third term.

Using vast new powers, I believe Obama will:
Greatly increase the size of the Fed's quantitative easing, leading to massive increases to inflation.
Seize control of the entire 401k retirement system, forcing Americans to buy more of our government's risky debt.
Implement vast new taxes across our economy, as they have already done with the health care program and which they will do next by implementing a national sales tax.
Continue to expand the welfare rolls by record amounts, buying still more votes, more power and setting the stage for a third Obama term (something I'll explain in this letter.)
Reshape our foreign policy, drawing America into partnerships with dictators and socialists around the world.
