Obama trying to abolish term limits; as other past POTUS have Regan and Baby Bush come to mind with no success.

I chose this picture as a reminder that gun rights have been an issue before; in walks Brady Bill.

President Reagan says that after leaving office he ”would like to start a movement” to repeal the constitutional amendment that limits Presidents to two terms.

Mr. Reagan, in a restatement of a past position, said the limitation interfered with the right of the people to ”vote for someone as often as they want to do.”
The President discussed the amendment and other issues in a television interview conducted by the British personality David Frost that is to be broadcast this weekend along with discussions with two former Presidents, Jimmy Carter and Gerald R. Ford. The program is to be followed in later weeks with interviews with candidates now seeking the Presidency.
Whether Mr. Reagan will campaign actively to repeal the amendment remains to be seen. He has declared strong support for two proposed constitutional amendments, one to allow states to bar abortions and the other to prohibit Federal deficits, but has not worked for their passage.

“Rethinking White House Term Limits”
(I had the title in white but it wouldn’t show’)
An Essay by President George W. Bush
In today’s America, there are many fine laws that protect the rights of Americans to preserve their vast fortunes. But sadly, there are also some laws that protect the rights of terrorists to do terror. It is essential that we destroy – or at least bypass – these terrorist-helping laws, and we must do it now.
Topping off the list of these laws which support evil is the eight-year term limit for President. True, the eight-year term limit used to be an effective way to ensure that domestic regime change occurred – but that was before terrorism, when wars were short and change was a good thing. When the enemy fought as a nation, the Commander-in-Chief had the luxury of being able to invade an evil country, exterminate its people, and be holding tickertape parades before his term was over. Indeed, a Commander-in-Chief could even last eight years or less without compromising national security.
Sadly, those days are behind us. Terrorism is here for the long haul, and we need to fight it on the long-haul timeline.
The Ultimate Term Limit
Eliminating the Presidential term limit will go a very long way towards locking in the Bush Administration’s gains over evil. But there’s an even bigger problem than the eight­year term­limit: I call it the Ultimate Term Limit.
Until recently, there was no answer to the quandary of the Ultimate Term Limit. more

Obama could get 3 terms if H.J.Res 15 abolishes term limits

Americans around the nation were shocked Friday as they heard about H.J.Res. 15. H.J.Res 15 proposes an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the Twenty-second Amendment. This would remove the limitationon the number of terms an individual may serve as President. Rep. José Serrano (D- NY15)introduced the controversial joint resolution on Friday, the second day of the 2013 legislative session.
The last President to serve more than two terms was Franklin D. Roosevelt. Roosevelt served three full terms as President and was elected to a fourth term. Roosevelt died 83 days into his fourth term in office.
Congress passed the Twenty-second Amendment on March 21, 1947. The required number of states ratified it in 1951. There have been numerous attempts to repeal the Twenty-second Amendment, including a previous attempt by Rep. José Serrano. Rep. Serranoattempted to repeal the Twenty-second Amendment with H.J.Res. 5 in 2009.
Opponents of H.J.Res. 15 are being urged to inform their representatives of their opinions  more
