From the "I shit you not" File

You think the right-wing propagandist companies would find a new job after the election. But they've found a new anti-Obama rant.

I got an advertisement this morning saying that tinfoil hat-wearers need to be very afraid today because Obama is working to overturn the Constitution and run for a third term.

Like I said, I shit you not.

2. Overturning an amendment is actually fully within the bounds of the constitution

And I'd probably vote for the guy a third time. I say let's go for it.

chat rooms that run along side the minimized video screens on internet tv access sites. These folks are vulgar and racist who propagate unfounded fears to rally the anti President mob. Needless to say, I maximize he screens pronto.

6. I thought it was "Bush will suspend elections?"

Which is a bit of a different thing from "seek a third term"

Even their batshit crazy people know our guy would at least aim for an election. Our moonbats had no such confidence in their guy :lol:

There was lots of concern that he would either seek another term or, more likely, declare a national emergency and postpone the election.

But this was indeed a narrative in Democratic circles between 2006 and 2008. So, I agree, it happens on both sides.

a 3rd term from happening? Probably.. as much as they can get.

15. It is scam to take money from the stupid /Obama Seeking Third Term? Entrepreneur Scares Up Business

http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2012/11/26/obama-seeking-third-term-entrepreneur-scares-up-business-with-dubious-claim

Baltimore-based businessman Porter Stansberry is at it again.

The man who in the past has been found guilty of swindling customers with fabricated investment information is now trying to cash in on some of the public's dislike of President Barack Obama.

In an E-mail solicitation blasted across the Internet including on Monday over a listserv previously devoted to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich's presidential campaign Stansberry warns that Obama is secretly planning to seek a third term.

"Most people believe the election was all about whether or not Obama will have a second term. But it was not," says the E-mail. "What was actually at stake was whether or not he will have a third-term."

This is advertised on Rush .... Oh well if "they" want to piss away their money i say go for it.

32. Guys like this Stansberry are fomenting a violent reaction.

They are baiting the whackjobs out there into doing something. They know full well how this kind of conflated fabrication acts on people with guns and grudges or just the deranged with a god complex. Every kind of shit like the Stansberrys, Trumps, et al need to get a visit from Secret Service agents with copies of their IRS files - all of 'em - in their hands.

26. And I heard Michelle could run, get elected

And Obama would operate as a shadow government.
I heard that at our local Senior Center, an even more right-wing environment than our already fundamentalist, conservative county in south central New Mexico.
I thought, well, Michelle would be a better president than any Republican, except maybe Jon Huntsman (the one good R I recognize).

30. I am in the process of reading The Presidents' Club

which is a fascinating book about how former president interact with the current resident of the White House. They even have a formal club house in Washington, one of the very nice town houses close to the White House. Anyway, the book mentioned that Clinton liked being president so much that he did a fair amount of detailed research into how he might accomplish it and came up short. What these idiots don't understand is that not only is President Obama a constitutional law scholar, he reveres the Constitution and wouldn't do something like that. Not that they'll ever twig to that.

we wouldn't have to dump the Constitution, just the 22nd amendment. There is nothing about term limits in the original Constitution.

40. A blast from the DU2 past:

 
Who among us thinks there will be a Presidential election in 2008??

If you do, please explain how Congress or anyone else will counter the NATIONAL SECURITY PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE/NSPD 51
HOMELAND SECURITY PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE/HSPD-20 when invoked by Bush.

Please spare me the following responses:

1. "he wouldn't dare". We all know he would and will.

2. Oh you are just negative.

3. Congress will impeach him.

Tell me how this Congress, that wouldn't even insist on timetables in the war funding bill, will deal with directive 51?
