Crapo Backs Term Limits, But …

U.S. Sen. Mike Crapo has posted his responses to a “Tea Party Boise” candidate survey on his campaign website, including this oddity: Crapo told the group he “strongly agree(s)” with the statement, “I support term limits for Senators (2) and members of the House (3).” Here’s what’s odd: Crapo is currently seeking election to his third term in the U.S. Senate. If he strongly supports a limit of just two terms, does that mean he opposes his own re-election?/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.

DFO: Although I prefer to have good Idaho congressmen stay in office as long as possible, to build up seniority and clout, I still chuckle when I see one of them back term limits (knowing it ain't gonna happen) while running for more than two terms.

Question: It's been a long time since I asked this one: Do you support term limits?
