Est. May 2008

During his trip to Africa, President Obama, speaking to the African Union in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia, said:
"I actually think I'm a pretty good president. I believe if I ran again, I could win."

"But I can't," he added.
This statement of 'adherence' to Constitutional term limits for presidents is laughable coming from a man who's overstepped his Constitutional authority on so many occasions since his election in 2008.

But ... he can't run again?  Why not?  FDR did it, and managed a full three terms and two years into a fourth.  How?  National crisis, in particular, the run-up to World War II.

But, you say, we aren't facing anything like that.

I say, not yet.

Think about it.

The current Administration has entered into an 'agreement' with Iran which, from all accounts, is going to leave Iran the possessor of at least one nuclear ballistic missile in a very short time.  A nuclear Iran will be an emboldened Iran, and an emboldened Iran is an Iran which just might try to follow through on its 'Death to America' threats. 

If it does, we have a war ... and Mr. Obama has his excuse for running for a third term – just as FDR did.

Whether he'd win or not is debatable, even though a case can be made that it was the actions of his Administration which allowed – actually, gave – Iran the means to make intercontinental war.

Not so funny any more.
