Did Jeff Flake make an inadvertent, best argument for term limits that we've heard in a long time?

When a reporter asked him if he could have suggested the five day FBI investigation if he were running for reelection, he responded "no." So that confirms that these senators generally vote for selfishness and reelection reasons rather than truth, justice and the American way. A confirmation vote, by party line (or one pending reelection) , of 50 to 48 is not a truthful, considered vote. If Ford had not come along, the vote would still have been 50 to 48. Folks, We need term limits to fix this mess.

    Be careful what you ask for. Here in California we instituted term limits on our legislature and the result has been a bunch of elected officials who have no experience and don't know what they're doing, AND a political crony system that pays termed out lawmakers as "consultants" just to keep them in the loop. The cost and corruption this has caused here would only be worse on the national level.

    Voting for "re-election reasons" is another way of saying voting the way your constituents want.

    Nothing is more dangerous than a politician who's not running for re-election, since they're answerable to no one.
