When I read New York University history professor Jonathan Zimmerman’s Washington Post op-ed calling for the end of presidential term limits, I knew I wasn’t reading the words of someone whose life’s work it is to repeal the 22nd Amendment.
What Professor Zimmerman wants, in the guise of academic pretension, is for Barack Obama to be President for Life. Consider what Zimmerman wrote in the WaPo after Obama was elected in 2008:
Wherever you look, it would seem, the world is celebrating Barack Obama's landslide win in Tuesday's US presidential election. To people around the globe, Obama's victory signals a new American willingness to converse with the world instead of imposing our will upon it.
