More Bush for Life nightmare news

Via Raw Story, more on the attempt to repeal the 22nd amendment. You know, the one that limits a president to two terms? More bad news. Proponents (including a democrat) are pushing FDR as a reason to remove the term limit. Tying a bad idea to an exceptional circumstance and an honorable man won't help this get past committee.

There is one glimmer of hope, but I'm sure that a republican Supreme Court will make this little issue go away, and Bush will be King of America.

The 22nd Amendment repeal, if it passes and is approved by the states, would not go into effect until after the Bush presidency, making him ineligible for multiple consecutive terms.

Berman, a lifelong Democrat, made a point of noting that fact when discussing his support for the amendment's repeal. But he also said even the possibility of another third Bush term would not have caused him to back off the resolution.

As if the constitution has gotten in the way of Bush yet. But that's not all!
Meanwhile, bills by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Long Beach, Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and others that would allow Schwarzenegger to one day ascend to the presidency by amending the Constitution to allow non-natural-born U.S. citizens to become president have not seen much political traction this year.
Ahnold for presiduhnt. Repubs are going for the celebrity CEO approach, something that the business world is thankfully leaving behind. And the way Ahnold is doing right now in Cali, he won't even need a bucket to carry his electoral votes.
