By ROBERT LAURIE - Obama forever!

It seems a New York Democrat congressman, Jose Serrano, would like to help Barack Obama stay in the White House indefinitely.  Last year, he introduced a bill in the House of Representatives designed to repeal the 22nd Amendment, thus ending Presidential term limits. The bill was never acted upon, and died a quick death in the 112th Congress.

Now Serrano has reintroduced the bill, in the hopes of seeing it get a little farther in the 113th.

He's going to be disappointed.

First, the bill would have to be brought to the floor by the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.  That won't happen.  This thing died in committee last year, and it will do the same this time around.  But, just for fun, let's say it managed to get to the floor. It would have to pass both houses of Congress, and then be approved by 3/4 of the states.

For a term limit repeal, that's an incredibly high bar - one that will never be crossed while a divisive President like Barack Obama is in office.

The only reason we pay it any attention at all is to point out the fact that far-left Dems are once again pursuing an agenda that puts them in direct conflict with the U.S. Constitution. They're furious that they're being prevented them from doing whatever they please, whenever they like, so they're looking for a workaround.

Here's the link to last year's legislation on Govtrack.
