Barack Obama 'ready to return' to politics

Barack Obama is preparing for his return to politics and public life, according to a long-time friend.

The former US president is "ready to roll", his friend, the former Attorney General Eric Holder, said on Tuesday.

He said he had been in talks with Mr Obama about how he could return to politics, including ways he could interact with the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC), such as fundraising and working with state legislators. 

Mr Obama asked Mr Holder to head that committee last year.

Politico reported the politician's comments, which he made at a press briefing.


“It’s coming. He’s coming," said Mr Holder, "and he’s ready to roll.”

    Obama,

    America has had enough of your shenanigans as evident by the last election results. Just go find a hole to die in. No one wants you here

    Obama knows that it is legal to seek a third term.  U.S. presidents are only allowed two consecutive terms.  There is nothing preventing them from re-entering the race after a one term break.


    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.

    The 22nd Amendment forbids any president from running for a third term, regardless of the sequence of those terms, unless I'm reading it incorrectly, so that means only Jimmy Carter and George Bush 41 could run again.

    But, that doesn't mean there can't be a constitutional convention to abolish or amend that amendment...

    But then again, there may be other ways to "run" the U.S. without having to be the president, especially if one's talons go deep enough into the governmental process.

    It has been many, many years since I was in a poli-sci class.  For some reason I had always been under the impression that the 22nd amendment just prevented a president from serving a third, consecutive term.  I looked it up and re-read it.  I stand corrected.

    *No third term.*

    *No third term.*

    *No third term.*

    *No third term.*

    You could write it and repeat it 1000 times and still be correct in your original thought, since these individuals don't seem all that interested in following the constitution anymore it appears.

    I bet there is a dedicated guard whose sole duty is to slap away all the hands inching forward with their ballpoint pens.
