…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
Since the time he got elected in November 2008 Obama has been ‘grooming’ (to use the currently fashionable term) his American subjects for more permanent dictatorship. What the packs of Muslims, with relative impunity, do to prepubescent girls and boys, the adult Americans, 47% of them, like to have done to themselves.
The presidential elections are not due until November 2016 but the US media frenzy would, to a person from another planet, indicate that they are imminent. The whipped up hysteria is to reassure the voters that the elections matter, and, in fact, some Americans still naively believe that it can make a difference. To some limited, cosmetic extent, it does, but the choice is basically between two types of “it-makes-me-feel-so-good” rhetoric.
The kabuki clash of the Clinton and Bush clans may make a good theatre for the feeble-minded, fantastic profits for the providers of advertising space and “sell newspapers”, but makes little discernible difference to American citizens.
As far as I am aware, most commentators missed one possibility, in my humble opinion not entirely fanciful.
“Article Two of the United States Constitution stipulates that for a person to serve as President, the individual must be a natural-born citizen of the United States, … The Twenty-second Amendment to the Constitution also sets a term limit: a President cannot serve more than two terms. “
The 22nd Amendment was approved only in March 1947 by the Republican-controlled 80th Congress, and only in February 1951 enough States ratified it. Prior to that it was only a convention.
Hussain Obama almost certainly breached the first requirement, and there is nothing and nobody to prevent him from breaching the remaining one. The Constitution never had stopped him from doing what he wanted; invariably to the detriment of freedom, democracy and the pursuit of happiness. His anti-constitutional, executive ‘ukase‘ outrages provoke only mild verbal slaps from the Republican legislators and never lead to any action. True, Obama lost a few court cases, but he either ignores or appeals to infinity the court decisions. The Republicans, for reasons of their own, I suspect venal, can’t bring themselves to stop him by something so obvious as an impeachment. When the audacity of the Anti-American-in-Chief meets the apathy of the Americans the result is a continuous disaster.
Obama can simply ignore the 22nd Amendment. So no more worries, Honest Hillary, and other hopefulls, you are likely to became even more irrelevant.
