Napalitano: Obama suing every Republican governor to hinder Repub election chances
Neal Cavuto on Fox | 7/18/12

Posted on 07/18/2012 1:58:16 PM PDT by pabianice

On Cavuto now. Judge Napalitano explaining Obama's latest assault. He has ordered Holder to sue every Republican governor, claiming that their states' early voting rules are unconstitutional in that they "confuse minority voters." The judge claims this is a bald-faced move to drain Repub states' funds to defend against this frivolous tyranny. Also expected to make it more difficult for Red states to determine the winner of the presidential election as the count may also be held-up in court by Holder.

Let’s hope this forces those states to take Ozippy off their ballots because he’s ineligible.

What about the Equal Protection Clause, since there are no states with Democrat governors being sued?

>>> states’ early voting rules are unconstitutional in that they “confuse minority voters

Why is it only Republican Governors’ states?

I would imagine Dem gov states have more illiterate minority voters.

In November 2008, I thought the worst. But, then, came to my senses, so I thought, and figured it couldn’t be that bad. After all, we got thru Carter and Clinton. Then, in the months that ensued, it was about 3-4 outrages per week. The pace has picked up, and now it’s every day... and BIG ones too. There has been no letup on leftist KRAP, only a crescendo to more. Seems to me at this point, the guy is going for the entire enchilada, so-to-speak. Do they figure they’ve past a tipping point, where the “transformation” is unstoppable? Do they think, if not, that they are close enough that a final putsch to the edge will do it?

“Reichstag via lawsuit.”

I suspect there will be a real Reich stag happening between now and the election.

Obama is a committed Marxist and this ideology commands that he retain power by any means possible.

I predict that he will lose the election and refuse to step down and claim he was defrauded in the election process.The fate of our nation will be determined by this next election.

Like Dylan sang, “there is a hard rain gonna fall.”

If the Republicans had a brain they’d be trumpeting “Obama thinks minorities are stupid.”

I hope this situation finally compells the states to reassess their relationship with the federal government, which has been pretty one sided for the past 150 years.

While its true that democrats are easily confused, changing “early voting” rules won’t really help with that.

Ask your host. For me, I am not voting for either. I must be influential. Since the prevailing logic is that my failure to vote for Romney is a vote for Obama, that means that my failure to vote for Obama is a vote for Romney. Add those two votes to my write in and I get three votes.

Gov’s to DoJ:

Motion to dismiss.

No evidence to support the charges.
Shows bias against minority voters, by insinuating they may be confused by Voter ID requirements.

Suit is an attempt by DoJ and this administration to foster and support vote fraud.

I find it hard to believe even the federal gov has the resources to sue every republican state or the time for this to be effective...

That being said I can certainly see Holder suing tight or toss up states...

If each city and each county of each state brought suit against Holder under state law for civil rights violations under state law for inteferring in the rights of the voters in those states it would keep Holder awfully busy. It would take the entire DOJ just to answer them all - any defaults of failure to appear and warrants issue.

claiming that their states' early voting rules are unconstitutional in that they "confuse minority voters."

I'm confused.

I thought the argument FOR early voting was that it made it easier for minorities and the elderly to vote, because it expanded access to the voting booth.

Now they're claiming the opposite, that it confuses minority voters?

I think the underlying assumption here is were you to vote that you'd be inclined to vote for the republican candidate, not the democrat one.

Incorrect or not, it is the underlying assumption.

Throw into doubt any election rule and you have grounds to claim irregularities which puts the election in doubt.

When you manage the election irregularity, you have a head start in your lawyer’s arguing your side.

I’ve seen this used twice in the last two Washington state governor’s races (which the D’s stole twice).

When it comes to Presidential elections, the Congressional and gubernatorial elections are irrelevant and all the case laws associated with them.

Article II as modified by the 12th Amendment is not justicable. It sets out how the Prez is elected, and it is via the State legislatures and Congress.

Holder can attempt to muck things up in the courts, but the States determine via statute how Presidential electors are appointed.

There isn't a d@amn thing Hussein and his thugs can do to stop the electoral votes from being counted in accordance with the Constitution.

It’s been obvious from the beginning that Obama will do anything he can, use any tool he can, say anything he can, to retain power. The Justice Department under Holder is completely at his beck and call. He’d probably like to use the military more, but that is too risky — for now.

The man is the most dangerous demagogue ever to curse the nation. Clinton was a naughty boy compared to him. The Republic is in more peril now than ever in our entire history.

If not, it’s getting very close. At the brain level of the services, there are a lot of Majors, Lt. Cols and Cols who still take their oaths seriously.

The Constitution of the United States is in peril. They are sworn to defend it.

It’s not about making sense, it’s about draining enemy resources. Doesn’t matter whether the cases are thrown out in short order, his enemies have to expend time & resources combating the charges.

The Right keeps falling into the trap of engaging in polite rational discussion with an opponent who has already moved on to the next battle.
