Wonderful World of Disney - Presidential Term Limits Didn't Exist Then
On The Wonderful World of Disney: The Adventures of Davy Crockett, Crockett is a congressman and Tobias Norton is trying to trick him into going out of town on a speaking tour so, while gone, Crockett's political enemies can pass an Indian Bill that Crockett is opposed to. Tobias waves a possible presidential nomination at Davy as bait. He tells him that "You've got to look ahead. President Jackson is in his second term. In two years they'll be electing a new President and some of us are seriously considering you." Term limits didn't exist in Jackson's day so there would be nothing keeping him from running for, and winning, another term had he chosen to do so.

What's really the problem is the fact that, though he was a Democrat like Jackson, it was the opposition Whig Party that financed David Crockett on his goodwill tour through the Northeast. There was talk that Crockett might be the Whig candidate for President against Jackson's successor (who turned out to be VP Van Buren) It took courage to be a Tennessee Democrat against Jackson on a major issue like the Indian bill. The Jackson forces - led by future President Polk - orchestrated the campaign at home against Davy. Finally defeated for reelection to the House of Representatives, he admonished the voters that they could go to . . . . and he would go to Texas.
