Newsmax Promotes Limbaugh's Misleading Obama Paranoia
Topic: Newsmax

A July 1 Newsmax article by Rick Pedraza asserted that Rush Limbaugh "has a point" when he claimed that "President Barack Obama and his political operatives already are laying the groundwork for a third term." Among the evidence Pedraza cited:

Upon Obama's taking office, Rep. Jose Serrano, D-N.Y., introduced legislation in the House to repeal the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution, which limits presidents to two consecutive terms or 10 years in office. Serrano’s justification for the bill is that, until 1951, nothing prevented a president from serving more than two terms.

Pedraza failed to note, as has, that Serrano has introduced a bill to repeal the 22nd Amendment in every Congress since 1997 -- which included years when a Republican was president. Pedraza also doesn't explain why a Democrat would introduce a bill to allow a Republican president to serve a third term.
