The sudden interest in the ineptitude of the current resident of the Whitehouse by the US press seems to indicate that they are ready to discard him. American thinker has an interesting take on Obama trying to make a comeback.

My initial thought on Obama getting a third term was “the 22nd Amendment says that a person can’t be President more than twice.” Except that, as the article points out, that isn’t what it says.

Twenty-Second Amendment

Twenty-Second Amendment Annotated

Section 1

No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this Article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this Article was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this Article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.

22nd Amendment, emphasis added

If Obama is appointed to be the VP to replace Kamala, then Biden is also removed from office, Obama could serve out the remainder of the current term.

How would they remove Harris? What if she were assassinated by a Trump supporting, AR wielding bitter clinger?

Normally I’d call BS conspiracy, but this is 2022 and anything is possible.

    True. The thing that shocked me to the point of posting was the sudden realization that there is a ginourmous loophole in the twenty second Amendment. The way that it’s worded, a person can be President for life, as long as he is never elected.

      Barry could be Vice President Forever.

That pathetic video reminded me of the final scene in the Godfather, with the henchmen gathered round, kissing Pacino’s ring, while Kay was slowly shut out….

I have also read where people claim that the speaker of the house doesn’t have to be a congress critter, but can be anybody. They are saying that is an avenue of getting Trump back into the white house should the republicans gain control of the house this fall.

    Even if possible, it won’t happen. Too many ‘never Trumpers’ in the Republican party

They’ll replace Harris with Mooch Obama. That way Moochelle can serve out Biden’s term then get 8 more years when they ax Brandon and Barry W. Bush can rule as first man.

    I dont think that Obama’s narcissistic attitude will allow that. He wants to be the only other person than FDR to get a third term.

    “Barry W. Bush” — busted out laughing on that one. Excellent!
    Glad I wasn’t drinking — I’d a spit it everywhere laughing so hard

I agree that he is narcissistic enough to want to come in the front door, not the side door.
While he is popular in small elite circles, he is nowhere near as popular as he used to be.
It would make sense for the Democrats to pass visible “official” leadership on to the next generation, but they are stuck because the older generation (Pelosi, Shumer, Biden, Feinstein, etc) have prevented the rise of the next generation to hold onto power, so there are no serious, nationally known candidates to follow this generation.
And no, I don’t consider Newsome, Abrams, etc to be serious national candidates!
I think they’ve painted themselves into a corner at this point. They are still at a point where whoever they appoint has to have the appearance of legitimacy.
If they wanted to throw off the conspiracists, they could appoint Romney!

    My son had an interesting thought when we were discussing this. He suggested that, after dumping Kamala, the Democrats should nominate Bill Clinton to be VP. Don’t know if the current Democratic party would, but it would undoubtedly draw a couple of RINO votes to confirm him
