Tea Party candidate Richard Mourdock made a public display (I think unless he's taken it off his website) about jettisoning the 17th Amendment to the US Constitution. You know (or maybe you don't) the one that allows you, the citizen to directly elect your US Senators. Yes, Tea Party Richard prefers you not get that opportunity. But hey, he's not extreme.
It now comes to life that Tea party Richard may have a whole list of Constitutional Amendments he wants to eliminate. Next up, the 22nd Amendment to the US Constitution. In an interview with the Wabash Conservative Union, Mourdock not only opines about the need to get rid of the 22nd Amendment, but uses President George W. Bush as the example:
WCU: What elements of the conservative movement are most vital and how would you define the movement today?
Mourdock: The element that is most vital is the one I think we are most failing on and it is communication. In many ways I think President Bush is an example of why the twenty-second amendment is a bad idea. The twenty-second amendment limits the president’s terms to two. I sometimes think that the day after President Bush was reelected he realized he didn’t have to deal with the media any more, he doesn’t have to make the argument and I don’t think that is a good thing. If he was even thinking about running for a third term, then he would be promoting his ideas more. I think he has the right ideas almost without exception, almost, and I don’t think he is selling those ideas.
I wonder if that was on his website? Okay, so the next question, does Tea Party Richard have his own "Kill List" for Constitutional Amendments he wants eliminated?
