WaPo….Give Obama a third term

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinio...809_story.html

As President Obama faces a small revolt within his own party, a Washington Post op-ed is calling for the United States to end presidential term limits and allow him to run again in 2016.

“Barack Obama should be allowed to stand for re election just as citizens should be allowed to vote for — or against — him,” writes New York University Jonathan Zimmerman professor of history and education. “Anything less diminishes our leaders and ourselves.”

Zimmerman argues that the president would enjoy more deference on such unpopular initiatives as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the recent nuclear-arms deal with Iran if he had a legal opportunity to seek additional terms in office.

A one-time six-year term with a one-time term limit is the best approach. A president should take action without taking re-election into account.

I'm sure that Congress will get right on that.

I agree it was not meant to be a career but I see similar types as being elected again. Also, a rep could pass worse legislation if he knows he can not run again. He won't have to be there to take the heat for a bad law.

Is that so? Sure seems like a lot of the founding fathers hung around for eternity in government.

folks just do not understand what happened to the GOP when Nixon took over. the GOP went full retard during the eighties, redefining "conservatism" to be that of individual speech and lifestyle while denouncing previous conservative efforts to maintain the USC.

I believe this bill was authored by a GOP senator from florida. a christian.

8 years at the highest office in the land is enough. Further...the office takes a huge toll on the body. I doubt the President would want to run again.

Then maybe a president would actually work instead of flying all over the country in the nicest corporate jet ever to campaign or golf. When Hollywood's Lord and Savior condemned the CEO's of GM, Ford and Chrysler for flying to DC in a corporate jet, I was floored. If those 3 companies can't afford a jet, why is there such a thing. With 17 trillion in debt, maybe it's time to park Air Force One for a while. Besides that, AL Gore says Jets cause global warming.
Disagree and it proves you are stupid.

He'd probably win again. No one cared last time how bad of a job he'd done.
