"The Little Boy President"

" When I look at myself in the first grade and I look at myself now, I'm basically the same. "-- Donald Trump


Trouble is that the first grader is now President of the United States, and his temperament is on display for the world to see.

Unpredictable, impulsive and immature, Trump acts in a way that would be expected of a 6 year-old boy,

But is terrifying in a man whose moods dictate decisions carried out by adults on behalf of the most powerful nation in the world..."

We shouldn't forget the history of the 22nd amendment passed in 1947.  It was the Republicans that pushed for it unknowingly  will backfire after Reagan became president, tried a 180..  Sorry GOP you can't have it both ways.

For better or worst, the 2 term limit is appropriate.  Wonder how many Democrats are saying THANK GOD right now? :huh:
(my opinion Trump is a one termer)
 
Guess it does balances out for both Democrats and Republicans.

The amendment backfired on the Republicans even earlier. Eisenhower's huge popularity might've transferred into a third term.

I recall there was some talk of repealing the requirement that the

POTUS be a citizen of the U.S. when Kissinger was still prominent.

It never went anywhere, thank goodness. 


Curse Sir Walter Raleigh, he was such a stupid get.

For Obama it would be a 3rd term and it's not unprecedented--

Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected to 4 terms--although he died in the first year of the 4th term.

The Trump administration, apparently. That's who sent the letters out.

 

Don't pin reality upon the Trump followers here. They want an excuse to blame Obama again.

Another illustration of the utter incompetence of the Trump Administration at all levels, from the president on down.
