Obama Announces Plans For A Third Term Presidential Run

Washington, DC — President Barack Obama shocked the country this morning with news that he is running for a third term.

“I can’t abandon the American people now when they need me more than ever,” Obama told reporters at a press conference this morning. “We’ve come this far as a nation, now is not the time to do something different. This is the change you wanted and this is the change you’re getting.”

Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky told CNN he does not agree with Obama and his announcement. “This defies everything the Constitution stands for,” Paul said. “We can not let this man have a third term.”


In the history of this country only two presidents have served more than two terms, Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin D. Roosevelt. The major problem for Obama when he runs in 2016, is the 22nd Amendment. In short, the 22nd Amendment states, “No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice…”

The U.S. Constitution does make an exception in the 22nd Amendment though: “This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several states within seven years from the date of its submission to the states by the Congress.” This means Obama’s third term presidential run is only valid if he receives 75% approval from the Congress.

A bill to abolish the 22nd Amendment was recently introduced into Congress by New York Democratic Rep. Jose Serrano and is gaining popularity. This is exactly the kind of news that makes an Obama 2016 Presidential run possible.

Paul Horner who is a spokesman for the Obama Administration told reporters how amazing this news is for the country. “Obama is guaranteed to win in 2016 and then we’ll all be able to enjoy this great man for another four years. Things could not get any better for the American people. I’m so stoked!”

That’s why it hasn’t happened already because Biden would be far worse the man can’t even wipe his own nose without being told how to..

      The words of another ignorant democrat.

      Someday every American, no matter which way they lean, will know the truth about racism in America. It has, and continues to be, given fertilizer daily by democrats, but then blamed on republicans. Nobody is fooled by this bait and switch tactic, so dems should just stand-up and own it. Sure, that will happen when my hair stops falling out, cops stop writing tickets, I win the million dollar per year lottery for-life, and bigfoot works the front counter at McDonalds!

  5. People we must wake up, our country is on the verge of collapse and we are hearing this from the worst President in the history of America! This cat would have been hanged in the old day’s just for being as stupid as he is !! But It’s our job to see to it he is stopped!!!!!!!!!!!! We I never thought I’d say this but we would be better off with Puttin for Pres. My God this man has broke every law known to man from our rights to our policy dealing with terrorist! IMPEACH IMPEACH IMPEACH I’M BEGGING YOU PEOPLE IMPEACH BEFORE WE ARE THIRD WORLD STATUS , WE HAVE LOST ALLIES WE COULDN’T AFFORD TO LOOSE!!!!

  6. Cathy says:

    How can he run for a 3rd term. A person can only serve 2 terms. He’s insane! The same things that come out of his mouth are the same things that came out of Hitler’s mouth in 1930′s. obama is using Hitler’s playbook. Just b/c he is black doesn’t make a difference – remember he is 1/2 white. Stop being enamored with him b/c he is black – so what! He’s just a pawn for the Bilderbergers and the Rothschild’s. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!

    • Warrior Princess says:

      I am not sure about this. You may be right. But I think he may also be mid east oil countries. Whatever. We are getting a royal screwing. Regardless, everyone needs to be informed about the Bilderbergers and the Rothschild’s. I am glad you brought it up.

  7. Nairobi says:

    I for one welcome the idea of Obama having more terms in office. Our country needs a powerful leader who is not afraid to take what he wants and to stand up for what he believes in. We need him now more than ever. The 22nd amendment is similar to the 2nd amendment in the sense that it is severely outdated and has no relevance to modern day America any more. Our president promised change, and I believe that amendment of our constitution is what we desperately need.

    • Kenyan nigger is you says:

      1/10. Best I can give you.

      I can call my friend who is an expert in trolls, but that’s about as much as you’re gonna get.

It will be tough to raise money from the grey bar motel where barry soetoro will rot for the rest of his fake life, wait I mean real life, the fake life is barack obama the kenyan fraud with fake records who is guilty of 40 counts of treason and 1000 counts of fraud for the past 35 years.

      Obama’s brother is the treasurer for the muslim brotherhood. Look it up.. yet NOBODY does anything… once again,.

      • ray says:

        I tried, I really did. And all I got were a bunch of right wing and white power websites screaming that Obama had “connections” to terrorists and that his brother was either part of Hamas, or the Muslim Brotherhood, that he wore a Hamas scarf, or he has declared he will destroy Israel.

        You may want to consider that the reason no one “does anything…” may be because the story is false, or that the story is irrelevant to the office of the President since the foundation is not associated with the current President except that the one you post about is run by his sibling and our President is named after the same person that foundation is named for – the President’s father.

  11. Down With Obama says:

    Obama needs to get out of office, he has flat out lied to the American citizens and should not be allowed to be in any type of leadership position.

    I am appalled by the blatant racism exhibited in many of the comments. Very sad.

    • lindar says:

      you are appalled by the racism, but not appalled by the actions of this president who promotes racism and division with every opportunity?

      • Lulu says:

        lindar: um, what? HOW does the President PROMOTE racism?

        • Matt says:

          Easy to answer, he is Black and he is the President of the United States, which upsets racist people. Wait, that doesn’t answer your question, it just explains ignornat comments like Lindar.

    • RealPatriot says:

      Kathy,

      The racist comments are being published here by hard-left activists so to give the appearance that people on the right are racists. Which we right-minded citizens know is very rare, especially if the persons are real Conservative right-minded citizens. Real Conservatives don’t have a racist bone in their body. Racism goes against everything real Conservatives stand for so the left has to make-up racism to use against us.

      If the people on the left are friends of yours, maybe you could talk to them about their disgusting use of Faux Racism.

      Thanks.

      • Lulu says:

        RealPatriot:
        Oh my lord, people use that argument over there to?

        Interesting enough, every single racist I’ve sadly come across in my days have been on the right-wing of the political scale.

        In theory, conservatives would not be racist (no one would?!), especially if they’re religious. Well, sadly that’s not the case.
        Racism goes against left-wing politics even more, and I’m sure that there are racists within every political ideology.

        So just face it that there ARE conservatives that are racists, and that those people posting these comments are for real.

        You might be conservative and not a racist (I hope) but just because you share a political ideology with someone, doesn’t mean they will think the same way as you. With your argument, no one would be a racism (wonderful world!). But we know that this is not the case, don’t we?

        • RealPatriot says:

          Lulu…

          Evidently you have problems with comprehension so I will make this clear… True Conservatives are the least racist group of Americans bar none. Conservatives have always believed, and practiced, what the late great Dr. King put into such iconic words, that we should ‘judge a person by their character not their skin-color’. Our parents drilled that ideal into our heads because the truth can sometimes take years to blossom in the minds of the young. That tradition is still passed along today with our own younger generations. Just ask some Conservative parents!

          The above reason, and the well-known tricks used by the Left, is all we need to convince people of our position on racism. You would make better use of your time if you would spend that valuable time scolding and embarrassing Comrades on the political Left concerning their dirt-bag of tricks. What they write in these comments makes all Lefties seem both racist and intolerable. Throw them a line and save all of us from their nasty habits!

          • Lulu says:

            Regardless of who you say is a “true” Conservative – many people that vote Republican and classify themselves as Conservative are in fact racists.
            Glenn Beck had 2.8 million in 2009. I think it’s safe to say that most people that tune into his show are sharing this opinions. And he’s a racist.

            In every country, the right is more ethnocentric than the left. Conservatives have more positive feelings toward members of their in-group and higher levels of patriotism toward their country. In the United States they are more likely than liberals to have a flag in their bedroom. On the other side of the coin, the right is more xenophobic toward other countries and members of out-groups.

            I don’t need to “ask some Conservative parents”, since I’ve shared homes with a conservative family, and am well-oriented in their opinions and views.

            It’s interesting how you think you can speak for every single one that classifies themselves as conservative, not admitting that yeah – that white, old, red-neck in the South is probably tipping over on the right side of the political scale. You might not share his views, even though you both say your conservative, but it’s important to realize that not everyone sees the world as you do. Thinking otherwise is ignorant.

            Your argument about how it’s only left-wing people posting racist comments here to make the right look bad is old. Frankly, I’ve stumbled across the exact same argument in other discussions, about immigration, or that left-wing people supposedly spray-painted swastikas on a school to make the nazi’s “look bad”. They didn’t, it was the nazis, newsflash.

            Since I personally know or people that are conservative and racist, your argument about how “no conservative is racist, nowhere, never!” is flawed. If a person classify themselves as conservative and are a racist, there you have racist conservative. Regardless if you think they are a “true” conservative or not.

          • lindar says:

            …and I ‘personally’ know of some liberals who are as well…whatever…
            I also see what some liberals are trying to do to the country: their spending sprees are out of control, and they cry and whine when the republicans try to cut back, and fools like yourself fall for their crap…
            I see them say one thing and vote the opposite, and I’ve seen them get away with outrageous lies and shenanigans in the name of keeping their jobs, and fools like yourself keep voting the corrupt individuals into office…
            I see them promote for abortions, when the stats show that blacks are the majority race receiving them…
            I see them give away cell phones for votes, instead of actually working on job placements and education…
            You keep supporting them…and watch this country become a place even mexicans don’t want to live in…maybe you are one who is afraid of losing their monthly free check??? if you are, take a moment to think about the poor soul who is getting up, going to work each day so you can get it and whatever other freebie program you receive…so you can sit back and yell racist at the ones who are paying for your life…I don’t wonder why so many republicans are racist, because its a little bit maddening when so many uneducated voters are sitting on their asses demanding MORE for nothing.
            We are all racist, you for having this chip on your shoulder, accusing everyone else of being racist are one of the biggest ones.

          • Lulu says:

            Lindar: Let’s take this from the top.

            1. I’m typing this during my break at work, so no “someone else is not paying for my life”. I pay over 45% in taxes. My father 65%. And I’m for higher taxes. That’s spelled solidarity and realizing that society is not better than your most suffering individual.

            2. Corporations are what makes some politicians corrupt. If there were no big firms to pay huge amounts for a law to be passed or denied, there would be
            You want to give the root of this corruption more power.

            3. I like how you phrase it “getting stuff for nothing” instead for helping those in need, you might be in that position one day. The services that taxes should provide for is basic human rights and should not be run for profit.

            4. Right wings like to call lefties “greedy” for “wanting someone else to pay”. I say it’s greedy to, like a child, go “mine!”. How many people opposing higher taxes could walk in to a cancer treatment funded by the government, take their care away and go “tough luck, my money.” Or going in to a house where a family sits down for dinner paid with food stamps and takes the plate away from the kid and goes “my money!”. Seriously. Just because you don’t have to look these people in the eyes, your actions will affect their everyday life. And your life, and your loved ones.

            5. In 2011, 76% of women having abortions were white; 10% were African American.

            6. Sure there will be people that classify themselves as left wing that are racist. I’m not arguing that, but the fact that the reality is that there are conservatives that are too. To not realize or admit that fact is ignorant.

            7. You might want to look up “racism” again. Calling someone out for behaving in such way that would imply that that person divides people depending on their race, is not racist. That’s like saying that you calling someone a communist, makes you a communist. Don’t use words you don’t understand.

I also work at a production company while going to school in TV production. I am also a journalist specialized in television, and the conclusion of all this is that I’m pursuing a career as a documentary film maker and director.

  14. Lulu says:

    lindar: um, what? HOW does the President PROMOTE racism?

    • lindar says:

      you are kidding right? just in case: he has done everything he can to create division between the races. remember his attack on the police when they arrested the harvard prof? that was all about race… how about his continual oppression of the black people? his entire party is hell bent on the fact they think people cannot think and decide for themselves, he taunts them with freebies to remain that way. He never mentions his white half, he promotes his blackness to use these people. (read his books, its very plainly stated in his own words how he felt about his mother and grandparents). refresh yourself on his comments and statements about his ‘son’ trayvon…his immigration program isn’t because he is some sort of humanist, he is again, using these people to bring most of the citizens of this country to an uproar against more and more illegal immigrants coming into this country. the list is endless…
      If you can’t read, bother to watch a news program that dares to do something other than kiss his ass and cover for him, then I’m not doing your research for you, Lulu. But if you want to see some truth about this president, then get to your research.

      • MJHammonds says:

        “Promotes his blackness”?

        Oh for the love of pete. He is black. If you saw him on the street and didn’t know anything else about him, you would not look at him, and think, “hmm, he’s half white”.
        I’ve read his books, and he does not say anything negative about his mother’s or his grandparents race.

        But you didn’t read his books, did you? All you read was the same right wing demagogue thinly veiled racist claptrap that has been circulating since before the man was even elected POTUS the first time around, which quotes his books out of context.

        YOU are the one who can’t accept the fact that the man is black, and he does have an affinity with black Americans because they share similar American experiences.

        Exactly what “uproar” are you referring to in regards to “those people”? Do you even hear yourself?

        And if you consider Fox News as a source for your “research”, then clearly, you don’t understand the concept. Fox news is not there to provide information or news. It exists to feed into the existing biases of their aging, diminishing, predominantly white audience, i.e., YOU.

        But hey, as long as you feel better about your not so subliminal issues with having a black president, you will ignore all other evidence.

        • lindar says:

          • MJHammonds says:

            So what did you think he meant when he said, ” I favor the the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and it must be upheld by gunpoint if necessary”?

            Do you even know which book that is quoted from?

          • lindar says:

            what do you think he meant when he decided to turn against white people?
            he is using his color to sway the black people , he doesn’t care about rights…he’s an evil man.
            If he cared about blacks why isn’t he out trying to stop the violence and crime amongst them? He only gives them freebies instead of trying to get them jobs…instead of telling them how oppressed they are, why isn’t he pushing them to make themselves better in this world?
            obama is really good at speeches, but that is as far as it gets…
            seriously, you are sadly blinded by his words, so much so you look past his actions.

          • MJHammonds says:

            Likewise, what? I asked you a very specific question. Since you claimed to have read all his books, I thought you might be able to offer some genuine input into the quote I referenced.

            So in essence, you are saying you have nothing of substance to offer?

            Your entire issue regarding Obama has been, according to your posts, his race, and how you feel marginalized by some very selective issues.

            Admit it lindar, you haven’t read his books. You haven’t read anything except what the links in your emails tell you to read.

            Feel free to prove me wrong- I’m still curious as to what you think of the quote I cited.

            And that would include the link to this website, which you no doubt received in an email, which you still seem to believe is a right-wing site, instead of parody of one.

          • lindar says:

            its called research mj…know thine enemy…obama is this country’s enemy…so his books are kind of required reading…pull your head out, stop trying to bully me, and grab one of those books you insist I haven’t read…

        • Ray says:

          There’s no reasoning with lindar. And to be honest, I think this site is a public safety hazard. Or maybe an unethical experiment to see just how riled up people can get and how much hooey they will believe.

          Dangerous though when all these people think the site is right-wing, and think it is truth.

      • RealPatriot says:

        It is a fact that Obama has been the most divisive President this Nation has ever had. I find it disgraceful considering that he is supposed to represent all the American people.

            Please explain why the job rate figures are beefed up, and leave out the folks who are just no longer looking…Please explain why he has decided his amnesty command is right, no matter how many people of the country do not want it…including his congress…

          • MJHammonds says:

            You’ve lost any shred of credibility you might have had, Lindar. Read the books, and then get back to me.

            uh, “losing credibility”??? that would be your presidente`

      • Lulu says:

        You’re kidding, right?

        Has it ever occurred to you that there’s racial profiling going on in America? That the “war on drugs” is mostly “fought” in black neighborhoods? That there’s racism in America? And that former Presidents have done nothing but worsen the situation for large parts of the black population?
        And how here’s someone trying to make up for it – then he’s PROMOTING racism? For trying to help discriminated citizens to the same rights as white people?

        “They cannot think and decide for themselves” – how would his politics say this?
        “Taunts them with freebies to remain that way” – what freebies? Are we talking health insurance and food stamps? Because you might want to put into the equation that discriminated citizens have are overrepresented in low-income families, and how does HELPING promote racism? Not helping promotes racism, because it speaks of that they would not be as valuable human beings as rich, white men, that got their backs scratched by the Bush administration.

        Immigrants – helping people escape inhumane conditions such as poverty, war, starvation, torture, discrimination, and giving them a chance at a new life in the US is a humane act and anti-racism. Racism would be prioritizing certain immigrants or citizens and also having hostile feelings toward someone because they are from a certain part of the world (did someone say islamophobia?).

        It’s the people that are having a problem with these immigrants, that are, as you say in “uproar against more and more illegal immigrants coming into this country” that are racist or showing racist tendencies or sympathies – not the President that are trying to do a humane act by helping.

        “Promotes his blackness”? Why are you so stuck on the a person having to show off their “whiteness” or their “blackness”? He is a human being and we show our personalities – not our skin color.

          because there was no track record to vote on…he uses his black skin to a level of putridity.
          He is the first to pull the race card, and his entire administration is more than willing to pull it…by the way, it doesn’t work so well any more…because its BS. the sooner you learn that the better off you will be…try to find another reason why people are tired of the lies he has perpetrated in the name of an election…

          • MJHammonds says:

            The only one here obsessed with skin color here is you, hon.

            You didn’t answer my question about the quote. Could it be because you never actually read his books?

            And I’ll bet you think this is a real news site as well.

            If race wasn’t an issue, then what are you and real patriot so defensive about?

          • lindar says:

            mr, ms, mrs, hammonds…you have called us all racist…and then you blame us for your name calling…typical silly liberal you. facts remain facts don’t they? and you continue to ignore them…drown in your ignorance and stubbornness…its only our country you are ruining…

        • RealPatriot says:

          Lulu…

          You are one of the people that are a huge part of the problem, not the solution. Simply making statements on par with “up is down” and “left is right” or “two plus two = five” does not mean you have a valid point or even make any sense.

          Let me put it in another way… you think and talk just like a spoiled rich-kid that has been brainwashed by some idiot Communist loving Professor.

          • Lulu says:

            Real patriot: So a person pointing out an issue in order for other people to realize it, is contributing to it, simply because of that fact (because I’m not sure what other actions of mine you can base that off)? I think people that ignores how the world is, is the ones that are not only a big part of the problem, but actually causing it.
            Please specify how I am a HUGE part of the problem, more so over faulty administration, corrupt big business, systematic racism, wealth inequality, poisonous products, war, a failing school system, corporate media that doesn’t inform citizens but indoctrinate them- which all affect society and different socioeconomic groups differently.
            You are clueless if you think that left-wings go on these things and pretend to be right wing and post bullshit just to make you look bad. You do that so well yourself already.

            You didn’t actually respond to anything I said in your last comment. But I take that last communist-part as a compliment. :)

            You may be a POS, but at least you own it. All Communists are enemies of the USA, thereby making you a POS by admission! May all of your rights be taken from you first.

          • Lulu says:

            Haha, oh my Lord, take a joke. I’m not a communist, but what if I were? You’re really stepping up to defend the freedom to think and believe in what you want – which is (supposed to be) the foundation which America was built on.
            Your way of thinking, which you just expressed, shows how quick you are to wish other people’s liberties away, how American of you.

            Again, you haven’t specified how I am such a HUGE part of the problem, over the other variables I stated?

          • lindar says:

            well lulu, look up communism…base word is commune…
            then look around you — how much of what you make are you going to give to me?
            because I want to live as good, OR BETTER, than you are…and I don’t want to help you work…I deserve it, because I’m oppressed…so yeah communism is GREAT!

          • Lulu says:

            @Lindar:
            I’m well aware of what communism is, considering my roommate is a longtime activist in the far left movement. (Again, I am not).

            As I said before, I pay over 45% in taxes and I’m for higher taxes. You have a really skewed image of how that works in real life. In socialistic countries like Sweden, everyone (above 2800USD/year) pays taxes, you make more you pay more. Then the ones that need services are eligible for them. Working still pays off but certain services like roads, education, health care, fire department, law enforcement, public media, etc are available for all citizens equally. The federal services will not make a standard of living higher than that of a working person, it will simply provide basic rights and services. Ever heard of moral and solidarity?

            Sweden has more millionaires per citizens and are better than generating wealth than the US, overall. Socialism doesn’t mean that the government takes away all your hard earnings and give them to someone else. Simply, you and everyone else will benefit from these services through your whole life – from prenatal care, free daycare, school, free university and money from the government to live on while in school, money if you get laid off work, ten weeks paid vacation, paid parental leave for 480 days, and care when you get old. All this result in a healthy, well-educated nation with high standards of living and happy citizens.

            Your last comment has no connection to the real world.

          • lindar says:

            gee, maybe we should all move to sweden, because that isn’t what they are planning for HERE.

          • Lulu says:

            @Lindar:
            I’ve never argued that. But you (and many others in these comments) are quick to come to conclusions about socialism, without looking at the real world. So I simply gave you an actual example of how socialism works, everyday, in a socialistic country. Doesn’t seem to be the horrifying image you like to paint, does it? You don’t have to be for socialism, but you have to know what it is you are so against, and build your arguments around that. Speaking of, you still haven’t replied to any of my comments with valid arguments.

          • Lulu says:

            @Lindar: no answer?

    • MJHammonds says:

      It’s a sad fact that there are some in this country who think that any attention not given to exclusively to them (as whites) is “promoting racism”.

      They don’t even realize that in of itself, is racist.

      Lindar- exhibit A.

      • Talavar says:

        Everyone above me in this comment chain is retarded. Racism is old news. Forget it. It doesn’t belong in politics.

        • MJHammonds says:

          Racism doesn’t belong anywhere. That doesn’t mean it doesnt exist. You are hardly helping your argument by using the term “retarded”.

  15. MJHammonds says:

    So now you are admitting you didn’t actually read his books, and your source is an opinion blog?

    I fail to see what the other issues you mentioned have anything to do his race, or racism, for that matter. Furthermore, you have failed to provide any credible evidence to a single claim regarding those issues.

    The real issue you have has nothing to do with recognizing “the truth”. You seek and find opinions that match your own. You seem to be under the impression that anyone who posts a blog that you agree with is supportive data.

    You seem unable, or unwilling, to conceive of any nuance in complex issues that doesn’t agree with your own pre-conceived bias might be worth examining.

    At this point, since you have proven that you lied to me, why should I listen to anything else you have to say?
