Uncle Jay Explains the News – May 19, 2008

So what seems to be rising faster: the price of gas, or the tempers in California?  And what’s FALLING faster: Hillary’s chances, or George’s clout?  The news has its ups and downs every day, but Uncle Jay is down with that … so he explains it all!

(CORRECTION: In this episode, Jimmy’s teacher is totally right and Uncle Jay is totally wrong about how long a President can serve.  Uncle Jay now says, “To anyone whom I may have offended by my remarks, I sincerely apologize and will check into rehab.”)

  1. Terry Says:

    teacher is right

    Amendment XXII
    No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice,

    and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once.

  2. Uncle Jay Says:

    Yes, it’s true … Uncle Jay has committed his first factual error! He shall correct the video as soon as possible, and hopefully not lose his accreditation.

  3. Tom Beaman Says:

    Terry says it all, but the actual total would be exactly 10 years (no more than). Uncle Jay is going to get a lot of mail on this goof!

    Amendment 22 – Presidential Term Limits

    1. No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this Article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President, when this Article was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this Article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.

    2. This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States within seven years from the date of its submission to the States by the Congress.

    This amendment was ratified on 2/27/1951.
