Repeal of Presidential Term Limits?

Big Gay David Dreier (R-CA) was on CNN this morning with Wolf Blitzer:

DREIER: And I will tell you, one of the things that’s interesting — and I don’t know that it will go into effect in 2008 — but in the new year, I’m going to be working with a number of my colleagues to put together a package that would conceivably amend the U.S. Constitution. It would do two things. Number one, repeal the 22nd amendment to the Constitution, which limits the terms in the presidency. And number two, would allow a naturalized citizen, one who is not born here, to run for president of the United States.

Repeal of the 22nd Amendment? End term limits for the President? Noooooooooooo!!!!!!

Dreier went on to tell Charles Rangel (D-NY) (who will no doubt be counted among Dreier’s “best friends” at some all-white cocktail party in the near future) that African-Americans would be the big winners from the privatization of Social Security:

DREIER: There would be options that would give a higher rate of return than today is received on Social Security. And, Charlie, I will tell you, African-Americans would be the greatest beneficiaries of this, as they would be able, with a shortened life span, they would be able to pass this on to future generations…

Oddly, Rangel was not moved. His response: “Give me a break.”
