President Obama has said that he's being forced out of office. Poor thing, lord knows he tries but no one told him that there is a Constitutional requirement that says he can only serve two terms. Somebody should have told him that he had two four-year contracts with no option to renew for a third. It's not his fault no one told him. How was he to know?

I wonder if Mr. Trump or Sen. Clinton have had any flunkies assigned to reading the Constitution for them?

Breitbart is not mainstream media...

Uh, you know he's referring to the Constitution when he says he's being forced out, right?

lol - Being hopeful that the people would elect him for a 3rd.

But one thing that pissed me off with Bush was how they jumped all over **** he said while golfing . . . it seemed pendantic and errant. I'm not going to give a rats ass over anything Obama says while golfing. The dude's been president for 8 years - he needs a break.

You do realize the Constitution isn't forcing him out? Oh, perhaps you haven't read it either. At best, it's a misconception on the part of a liberal who's not familiar with the Constitution.

If he were a lawyer who was familiar with the Constitution he would have realized his term of office is up. A lawyer familiar with the Contitution would have said, "I'm not quitting but my term of office is up." But, no, he doesn't understand.

No one, and nothing, is forcing him out of office. Perhaps they should have forced him out when he first began ruling and violating Constitutional provisions but they didn't so forcing him out when his term of office is up would be rather pointless.

Liberals don't understand a constitutional form of government. They only grasp the concept of dictatorships.

You do know what a joke is right?

Let me break it down for you.


1. "Not quitting my day job" is a pretty standard American riposte when trying to be self-depreciating about one's skill levels at some other activity.

2. He is well-aware of the two-term limit imposed on those elected to the Presidency, hence the "being forced out" joke.

3. The entire conversation was a light-hearted give and take, not a serious discussion of politics.

No, Captain Adverse, it seems to be you and your associate who don't know a joke.

But as jokes go, it's right up there with President Obama's joke when he told reporters Air Force One was going to make an unscheduled stop in Venezuela so he could visit Hugo Chavez.

I do apologize for posting in the wrong forum. I misplaced my list of mainstream media. Well, I had one but it was so old that the NYT was still on it.

If you're not paying attention to anything he does on the golf course, you've missed about 2/3rds of his presidency. :lol:

It's always been painful to me when Obama's tried to be funny, sure, but that's, at most, all this is.

You do realize that the Constitution IS dictating that he vacate office regardless of whether he would want to run or whether or not the public would want him to remain.

Conservatives always seem to be incapable of understanding subtlety of thought.

Beyond that, it was a joke. Humor is another subtlety that conservatives often miss.

Are you really trying to make a mountain out of a molehill over this joke?

There are plenty of things to attack Obama on, this is just silly and desperate.

Breitbart, the news source of choice for angry, uninformed fringe haters.

CNN and MSNBC, when you want the best in leftwing bias.

That's bull****, because I love humor. :lol:
 
I'd call it a trial balloon to see if there is support for removing term limits via Executive order or by other means, obviously since no one else can be trusted to run the country.

Why, Obama could appointment Bill & Hill as his two vice presidents!
 
No Obama fan here, at all, but talk about a non story.

Good morning, X Factor. :2wave:

Sadly, there are probably those who will believe this story, and will demand that he be allowed to begin negotiations immediately to stop this evil deed before it goes any further! :lamo

Only make sure, he doesn't try to stay.

I think he already purchased a $10M mansion, you know, going back to being like the rest of us. :lamo

Good morning, Pol. One of the conspiracies I often heard about Obama is that he's going to declare martial law and make himself president for another term. Seems like he sure gave that up without much fight.
