Obama To Run For A Third Presidential Term

Washington, DC — President Barack Obama shocked the country today 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.”

Presidential hopeful 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 cannot 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, though insiders say Obama plans to make an executive order to ratify this.

Paul Horner who is a spokesman for the Obama Administration told reporters how fantastic 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. These are amazing times to be alive.”

  • A third term, I’m still trying to figure out how he was elected a second term. Why can’t the. American people see what this man is doing to our great nation he has manipulated the constitution to a point that younger generations are regarding it as just old words on old paper, we are laughed at world wide. To let this man run for a third term would mean we failed as real Americans and by gosh real Americans are not failures, people can’t you see that it’s time to take our great country back. God Bless America! !!!!
