This past weekend on Face the Nation, Barack Obama explained why he is traveling through the Middle East and Europe…

“The objective of this trip was to have substantive discussions with people like President Karzai or Prime Minister Maliki or President Sarkozy or others who I expect to be dealing with over the next eight to 10 years.

And it’s important for me to have a relationship with them early, that I start listening to them now, getting a sense of what their interests and concerns are.”

Eight to 10 years, Obama? Let me see here… a U.S. President serves a term of four years and they can be re-elected just once.

4 + 4 = 8

That’s the rule according to the Twenty-second Amendment (Amendment XXII) of the United States Constitution, at least, which sets a term limit for the President of the United States.

Maybe Obama hopes he can change that silly rule, or even more alarming is the prospect that he is not aware of the 22nd Amendment.

I would suggest that Obama take one of his 300 foreign policy advisors and assign them to helping him brush up on the Constitution.
