I wouldn't be surprised BUT even if the 22nd amendment was repealed he would still have to campaign and be voted in each 4 years. Considering what it takes to amend the Constitution I doubt it DC would be able to add an amendment allowing any one person to be president for life.
According to Snopes the rep who is trying to pass this has introduced the same legislation 7 times regardless of which party has the WH, among others who have tried to introduce similar legislation. None of them even made it out of committee much less passed and went to the states to be ratified.
I'll chalk it up to more fear mongering.

Oh FFS. Obama isn't the one trying to get this legislation through, and this has been attempted numerous times by the same Rep as Friday pointed out. How LAME that Pugs are trying to pin this on Obama trying to take over the White House forever.
