A New Series: The Obama Orwell Watch

In which items will be noted and stored which indicate the true nature of Obamanation.

Item 1:

On January 6th, the day after Obama was officially certified as the next POTUS, Jose E. Serrano (D-NY) introduced H.J.Res 5, which states:

Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled (two-thirds of each House concurring therein), That the following article is proposed as an amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which shall be valid to all intents and purposes as part of the Constitution when ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States within seven years after the date of its submission for ratification:
`The twenty-second article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.'.

The bill has been referred to the Judiciary committee, which is exactly where it would go if it were to be studied and reported out to the House floor – or buried forever in committee consideration. We'll see.

Item 2:

On January 14th the LA Times published and artiocle entitled:

“Retooling Obama's campaign machine for the long haul”

Full story here.

Wherein the LA Times details the creation of a permanent Obama-only political cadre dedicated to pressuring 'Democrats' to fully and continuously support Obama. This organization is entirely independent of the DNC and is focused solely on re-electing Obama and pushing his agenda.
