Democrats have a habit of saying and doing things that go against the US Constitution. It has happened on multiple occasions over the past couple of years — especially where it relates to freedom of speech.
Former-President Barack Obama gave a speech Thursday in hopes of boosting the presence of Phil Murphy, the Democrat nominee for New Jersey Governor. When Obama came out to start the speech, the crowd began the chant “Four more years!”

The 22nd Amendment of the US Constitution states, in section 1, “No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice …”
President Obama was elected twice. He cannot be elected for four more years, as the Left would like.
Murphy is currently running against Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno (R) in November’s gubernatorial election to replace Gov. Chris Christie (R), who has reached his term limit as governor of New Jersey.
At this point, polls show that Murphy has a lead over Guadagno as next month’s election looms closer. This is likely due to the fact that people were not particularly fond of Chris Christie, a Republican. The controversial politician has been involved in unfavorable situations a number of times over the past few years, and will likely not see too many requests from his constituents to extend his own term.
Obama did say during the chants, “I will refer you to both the Constitution, as well as to Michelle Obama, to explain why that will not happen.” It was meant to be an innocent joke.
After his remarks about Michelle and the US Constitution, he continued his speech by taking a cheap shot at President Donald Trump.
“What we can’t have is the same old politics of division that we have seen so many times before, that dates back centuries… It’s the 21st century. Not the 19th century,” the president said. He didn’t mention President Trump by name, but he didn’t have to. Every person in attendance knew what the implication was.
The former-President then went on to encourage New Jersey to pass along a “message to the world.”
Democrats were calling for Obama to serve another term. Does this concern you?
Obama then walked off the stage, ending his speech. Some would argue that his behavior is odd. Obama has made public appearances ever since President Trump was elected. In some cases, Obama even traveled to some of the same locations as President Trump –and at the same times — to give speeches. It seems as if Obama still feels like he is the president.
The Left’s behavior as of late indicates their lack of respect and knowledge of the US Constitution. It’s imperative that we honor the limits and boundaries set forth in its pages. This nation’s founders were wise and had the foresight to build necessary protections into the Constitution that support the very society in America today.
