H.J.Res. 15: Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, ...I really hope this is a bad joke.

All kinds of amendments get introduced. They are, for the most part, political grandstanding:

Well considering that rather than ammending, most politicians prefer to completly disregard the Constitution or find creative ways to interpret it, I guess it's a moot issue.

Joe Serrano has introduced this amendment many times in the past...

1997: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/105/hjres19
1999: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/106/hjres17
2001: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/107/hjres4
2003: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/108/hjres11
2005: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/109/hjres9
2007: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/110/hjres8
2009: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/111/hjres5
2011: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/112/hjres17

Its a joke and not to be taken seriously. And before people go ZOMFGWTF they want Obama to be king, as you can see by the link list above, this has been introduced when Bush and Clintion were in office.

The 27th Amendment was submitted to the states for ratification in 1789 and was finally adopted in 1992.

Since 1960 the following amendments have been proposed and enacted:

The 26th Amendment was proposed on March 23, 1971, enacted on July 1, 1971.

The 25th Amendment was proposed on July 6, 1965 and enacted on February 10, 1967.

The 24th Amendment was proposed on September 14, 1962 and enacted on January 23, 1964.

The 23rd Amendment was proposed on June 16, 1960 and enacted on March 29, 1961.

Joe Serrano should not waste his time on these silly and foolish bills. The man was elected to do the job of getting country back into shape. Oh, forgive me I forgot he is a Demorat. This yo yo should introduce a bill to remove all whack jobs out of Congress.

Any attempt to circumvent term limits should not be considered a joke.

He needs the opposite: limit Congresspersons and Senators to only two consecutive terms, before they must take one term off.

What makes it a joke is that he introduces it every session and it dies in committee every session. Its a joke because it would require 2/3rds of the House and Senate to approve the bill, then 3/4ths of the states must affirm the proposed amendment.

Even when Obama had a large Democratic majority for two years this failed to make it out of committee.

Do you really think that House Republicans would vote to repeal the 22nd Amendment while Obama was the President?

Despite all of the rational posts above, I just don't trust any of our elected politicians to do the right thing anymore. I do, however, trust them to eploit any legal loophole they can to ramrod through any piece of legislation that benefits them / and or increases their influence.
