Professor: Give Obama Third Term

As poll after poll shows the protracted decline of Barack Obama’s approval rating, even some of his once-ardent supporters have begun to recognize their error in judgment. As he sheds support from these average Americans, however, his core constituency digs in further in an effort to protect his leftist policies.

For example, New York University professor Jonathan Zimmerman recent penned a Washington Post opinion article in which he advocates for a repeal of the 22nd Amendment. By removing presidential term limits, he marvels at the idea of four more years under Obama’s reign.

Zimmerman began by conceding that the disastrous ObamaCare implementation caused many of Obama’s former allies to retreat, resulting in his “lowest ever” approval ratings. Instead of blaming his unpopularity among Democrats on inept and dishonest leadership, however, Zimmerman blames the 22nd Amendment. In the article, he wonders if Obama would experience such retaliation from his own party if he were able to seek reelection.

“Democrat lawmakers,” he concluded, “would worry about provoking the wrath of a president who could be reelected.”

As it stands, however, these legislators have “got little to fear.”

According to this purported scholar, America’s chief executive exists to coerce others into doing his bidding by means of intimidation rather than persuasion. As a lame duck, Zimmerman noted that Obama in turn has nothing to fear from the voting public.

“And if the people wanted him to serve another term,” he asked, “why shouldn’t they be allowed to award him one?”

While his argument might make sense on the surface, the 22nd Amendment was ratified after overwhelming public sentiment dictated that Franklin D. Roosevelt’s four consecutive inaugurations was a trend that should not continue. Instead, America decided to cement the precedent set by George Washington when he stepped down after eight years in office.

Many have speculated throughout Obama’s presidency that he might seek an inroad to circumvent the 22nd Amendment. While there has yet been no indication of such an intention on his part, individuals like Zimmerman are attempting to do the work for him.

What should be the greatest deterrent against repealing presidential term limits – a third Obama term – is being used as a selling point among his remaining supporters.

          9. Obama said, I have visited 57 states. Now there is just 1 left to visit, the idiot doesn’t even know how many States this Country has, what a joke he is

          • May I give my list of 50 things obama has done good for this country

          • YOU ARE NOT GOD, YOU ARE IN NOOO POSITION TO TELL ME WHAT GOD DOES AND DOES NOT SUPPORT. THE BIBLE DOES NOT SAY GAYS DO NOT HAVE A RIGHT TO MARRY

          • Linda From NY says:

            Crazy, if you read your Holy Bible you should know the story of Sodom and Gomorrah and why God destroy these two cities, and if you don't know the story then ask your Pastor why God destroy these two cities name Sodom and Gomorrah and he will tell you it was because of homosexuals

            God considers same sex abomination he said so in his words
            Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt NOT lie with mankind, as with womankind, it is abomination
            what this means same sex.

          • Ok, so what, we segregate homosexuals?

          • Linda From NY says:

            Ask God, those are his rules, not mine, God loves the gay people but he hates the homosexual acts

          • It’s who they are, god created them that way

        • Linda From NY says:

          Obama is a communist and he is a muslim who hates this Country, do not take my word for it, just do your own research on this man and get all the facts for yourself.

          • And where exactly do I get the”FACTS”.Hmmmm.. Rush limbaugh?

          • Linda From NY says:

            Crazy, Nope no Rush,

            Just go on the net and on uTube there are plenty of information on him and do your own research I can tell you other things about him but you wouldn't believe me, as I said just do your research on him and get your own facts

  6. Im not racist, I believe every race, including whites, should be treated equal

    • Linda From NY says:

      I am glad to hear that you are not a racist, and yes you are correct all races should be treated equal.
      The destruction of this Country has been going on for a long time way before Obama came on board, he is just finishing the job.

      The problems of this Country started in 1913 Woodro Willson open the door to the Federal Reserve Bank, the Federal Reserve Bank is own by private citizens, billionaires.

      You should educate yourself on more of this information and you would be surprise to who is really behind all the wars and profits these people are making.

      When you get the chance look into the New World Order, they are the Global Elites, the illuminati, you would be surprise of what you will find out. There is a lot of information out their in regards to this

      As much as I dis-like Obama he is only a puppet just like bush, these two have done a lot of damage to our Country.

      • Then you called me racist because you were angry

        • Linda From NY says:

          I have never call you anything, you are the one that got on this site and accuse everyone of being a racist.

          We do not like Obama NOT because of his race, the reason we don't like him is because he is the worst president this Country every had and because he lies he is a pathological liar. That is all he knows how to do and he wasted our tax dollars on his Bull Sh!t and we the American people are tired of this moron destroying our Country.

          And if you can't see this then that is your problem, maybe one day you will stop drinking the koolaid that Obama been bullsh!ting you with

          what is so hard for you to understand? if you like the man the go ahead and support him I don't care

      • I Think its our own fault as americans not just the president, as technology grew, we became selfish and cruel.Our ignorance as a country will lead to our distruction.Republicans and democrars agian distacing themselves from americans.

      • He hasnt done that much damage at all, at least economically

        • Linda From NY says:

          he has added to the deficit over 5 trillion dollars since 2008, last year since he won again he spent another trillion, but on what? he got nothing to show for it, more Americans are jobless and another 100 million on foodstamps and now he wants open the doors to 20 million illegals to take away what few jobs we have and they will get free healthcare on the expense of the taxpayers, this is all wrong. Let keeps what few jobs for Americans, that is fair.

          Lets be honest if this was a white man doing everything he is doing everybody would be screaming to get him out. I know when Bush was recklessly spending I did not approve of what he was doing either, that is why I tell you there is not much difference to me between Bush and Obama.

          The only thing I can ask of you is to pray for him and the Country and for things to turn around for the better of the Country and all of us

          • I understand, from the begining he said he wasnt going to be a perfect president. Its the hardest job in the world. You must understand what he goes through everyday. Republicans should stop critizing him and actually try and work him

  7. You have no proof, WHERE IS THE PROOF? You dont have to love him, just dont treat him like dirt. Im sorry you feel threatnd by him, you shouldnt. But I have no place to tell you what you think.

    • Linda From NY says:

      when the man stop lying so much then perhaps he will get respect, by the way whatever happen to Hope and Change? where is it? that is what he ran on and that is what he told the American people, he promise us Hope and Change, but what happen to it? where is it?

  8. Fear Mongering will destroy this country….And dont say obama will

  9. You have no proof he is a muslim

  10. Obamas mother was born in america, which still makes him american and eligable for presidency

  11. Because a person is of diffrerent religion, you cant be president,?

  12. Egaulity for all mankind, that is the foundation of this country.Also religion is seperate from goverment. What the bible says has no part of what decision the president makes

  13. Conservative says:

    I have a suggestion, Obama, while maybe, maybe… not a Muslim, is also not a Christian but he definitely has Muslim leanings over other religions. But, my suggestion, he is going to visit Tehran and the Mullahs so, why not just let him and family stay there as their leader after his term of destruction is up in the US? He's done about as much damage to our way of life, military, economy, rights, healthcare, freedoms, racial and foreign relations and just about everything else we Americans have so let's give him the proper send off. Give him to Iran. And I'm not a racist, I'm just a Christian Conservative who happens to really love the US.

    • Or you could just do his job and complete his term, leave him and his family alone for once, and ACTULLY do something, like buying American products, that help the economy and AMERICA, than just critcizing him which does nothing

  14. dewiseguy says:

    0bama may not be a Muslim, but I know a fag when I see 0bama.

  15. As a concerned Brit viewing the present US governance with alarm, I knew in my bones that a third term for Obama wold be proposed. The GOP seem to be too weak to oppose this, and I would not be surprised that the second Democrat president will pull off this un-Constitutional trick.
