Watch: Obama Talks About Using a 'Stand-in, a Front-Man' for a Third Term; ‘Obama 2.0’: Joe Biden’s National Security Team Filled with Obama Administration Retreads, and related stories

Watch: Obama Talks About Using a 'Stand-in, a Front-Man' for a Third Term:
If you didn’t vote for Joe Biden for president, and the former vice president actually takes office on Jan. 20, you’re probably worrying yourself over the prospect that it’ll turn into a de facto third term for Barack Obama.
Well, if you listen to Barack Obama, you needn’t worry: It’s definitely going to turn into a third term for him.
Granted, when he appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” late last month, Obama didn’t say it in as many words. He couldn’t, because portraying Joe Biden as the Dmitry Medvedev to his Vladimir Putin might seem a bit … off to Americans. In fact, the way he phrased it meant that it mostly flew under the radar for a few weeks.
However, in an interview he did with late-night TV’s most obsequious Democrat booster, we were treated to some grade-A unintentional honesty.
Asked if he missed his old job when he looked at the headlines from the Trump administration, Obama mentioned that there were plenty of people who wanted him to have a third term. Alas, there was that pesky 22nd Amendment in the way, limiting him to two terms. --->READ MORE HERE
