The Next Presidential Election Isn't Until 2032Those of us who have spies within the White House know why this President isn't at all worried about his chances for a second term. He plans on challenging the traditional reading of the Constitution's Article II as well as the 22nd Amendment.
Article II, Section I: The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years,...President Obama will claim that 'the Term of four Years' means four years of working as President; actually on the time clock. His argument goes like this:
Amendment XXII, Section I: No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice,...
-There are 8,760 hours in one Year and 35,040 hours in the one Presidential term.The President and his staff are confident that their Supreme Court will agree with this strict construction in the reading of the U.S. Constitution.
-If the President is on the time clock for 40 hours a week, that one Presidential term will last 12 years on the calendar.
-The next Presidential election should not be held until 2020.
-If, however, as this President has done in solidarity with the under-employed and unemployed, the Office holder is on the time clock for only 20 hours per week, the term lasts 24 years on the calendar.
-The next Presidential election should not be held until 2032.
