Skip to comments.Obama’s plan to steal the election of 2012

Or, why Eric Holder will remain in office until 2013 at least.
A pair of articles from the Washington Times make clear that the White House has a plan for the 2012 election, and that is to guarantee victory for Obama regardless of the outcome of the vote. A large part of it depends on Eric Holder and his continual bastardization of the law.
The first comes from Robert Knight and his account of why democrats despise voter id laws:
Assistant AG Thomas Perez, the same official who terminated the Black Panther voter intimidation case, ordered South Carolina to stop enforcing its voter photo ID law. South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson explained precisely why the law is necessary:
The state Department of Motor Vehicles audited a state Election Commission report that said 239,333 people were registered to vote but had no photo ID. The DMV found that 37,000 were deceased, more than 90,000 had moved to other states, and others had names not matched to IDs. That left only 27,000 people registered without a photo ID but who could vote by signing an affidavit as to their identity.
Contrary to left wing claims, requiring photo ID has not been shown to suppress voter ID:
A bipartisan Commission on Federal Election Reform in 2005 chaired by former President Jimmy Carter and former U.S. Secretary of State James A. Baker III found no evidence that requiring photo IDs would suppress the minority vote. The panel recommended a national photo ID system and a campaign to register voters.
The second article comes from Jeffrey Kuhner. Against the backdrop of the Carter/Baker report (of which Holder appears to be completely ignorant) Eric Holder plays the race card for South Carolina:
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. claims Jim Crow is returning. In a recent speech, Mr. Holder said that attempts by states to pass voter identification laws will disenfranchise minorities, rolling back the clock to the evil days of segregation. He said that a growing number of minorities fear that the same disparities, divisions and problems now afflict America as they did in 1965 prior to the Voting Rights Act. According to the Obama administration, our democracy is being threatened by racist Republicans. Hence, the Justice Department must prevent laws requiring a photo ID to vote from being enacted.
Holder's argument has no foothold in reality.

This will be an even more race based election than the first one.
Obozo will not need to steal this election. There will be enough morons who vote for some third party hack to give Obozo the victory without any need to steal it.
Republicans should have known their complicity to lawlessness would only breed more. They were all too scared of being called ‘racisss’ to do anything about zer0’s ineligibility, and now they’re shocked by his open lawlessness. They had their chance.
Pic ID, and indelible poiple dye!
A simple thumbprint scan will do. As long as we get to arrest for voter fraud anyone who tries to vote twice or is a felon. Also permanently disqualify anyone who votes from obtaining new citizenship in the future (they are an illegal) and make it a reason for deportation.
Its quite possible.
Someone needs to introduce a bill that requires EBT cards carry the picture of the “bearer”.
I had a mammogram today and had to show my drivers license with picture. I couldn’t help but wonder why these people who supposedly can’t get picture ID do when they show up at doctor’s offices, imaging centers or labs????
I sat in the waiting room and couldn’t help but think of the many arguments put up against picture ID for voting! It’s certainly AS important if not more, as showing it at a doctor’s office....
Has anyone at FR gone to a doctor’s office/hospital/lab or imaging center without showing photo ID?
“”Obozo will not need to steal this election. There will be enough morons who vote for some third party hack to give Obozo the victory without any need to steal it.””
With the goal of raising a billion dollars for his reelection, he’s going to cover his bases just in case.
We can count on it being stolen for that kind of money!
Many judicial decisions have stated that requiring a picture ID is an unfair burden on the voter. But everyone has a thumb.
IDs can also be faked. Its pretty hard to fake a thumb.
I have to show a pic ID every time I go to the doctor, to the bank, to pick up my kids from school - I don’t see what the big deal is. Here in FL if you can’t have a driver’s license for some reason, you can get a legal FL ID from the DMV for $25.00. Seems pretty simple to me.
“”you can get a legal FL ID from the DMV for $25.00. Seems pretty simple to me.””
It IS pretty simple for people who don’t have anything to hide. The excuse for the excuse makers is people can’t afford to pay for ID. States have said they’d provide ID free of charge at people’s homes. Nope! Still not good enough. We have to show picture ID here in GA for voting.
It truly is mind boggling. Our minds are completely boggled at this point, aren’t they?
