Somebody just sent me this link to an amendment to remove “the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.”
(Update) My friend Bob Harris explains:
Not a Bushite plot; Rep. Jose Serrano (D-NY16-Bronx), has been introducing this for years.
It was House Joint Resolution 4 in 2001, House Joint Resolution 17 1999, and H.J. Res. 19 in 1997. It died in subcommittee each time.
Doesn’t mean things couldn’t get creepy real fast.
Bob, by the way, is somebody I’ve been trying to convince to start a blog for quite awhile. In lieu of that, I’m going to ask him to take over my duties for a week or two in early June, when I’ll be taking some time off.
