Obama says he won’t do this because the Constitution forbids it

ObamaWhile speaking in Elkhart, Indiana, Barack Obama attacked Fox News and conservative media for telling Americans that things aren’t great in his fundamentally-transformed America.

“Even his pen and phone have their limitations,” Twitchy said, although, to be fair, those limitations haven’t stopped him yet.

Politico added:

If Elkhart is dominated by Republicans, Concord Community High School’s auditorium was a tent revival for the vocal minority. The audience of 2,075 booed when Obama made a reference to the presumptive Republican nominee — Obama shut them down: “Voting, not booing.”

And they repeatedly called for him to run for a third term. While he joked that neither the Constitution nor Michelle Obama would let him do it, Obama nonetheless laid out, in relatively concrete terms, his proposals for maintaining and expanding his economic record.

They included comprehensive immigration reform, raising the minimum wage, expanding Social Security benefits, giving women equal pay and offering two years of free community college.

But Obama doesn’t really have to run for a third term.  Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party front-runner, if elected in November, would essentially be a third Obama term — on steroids.
