Skip to comments.Obama: Right to vote under threat in the US
Posted on 04/12/2014 5:32:49 AM PDT by ilovesarah2012
NEW YORK (AP) In an unsparing critique of Republicans, President Barack Obama on Friday accused the GOP of using voting restrictions to keep voters from the polls and of jeopardizing 50 years of expanded ballot box access for millions of black Americans and other minorities.
"The stark, simple truth is this: The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago," Obama said in a fiery speech at civil rights activist and television talk host Al Sharpton's National Action Network conference.
Obama waded into the acrid debate over voting access in an election year where control of the Senate, now in the hands of Democrats, is at stake, as is Obama's already limited ability to push his agenda through Congress.
Republicans say the voting measures guard against voter fraud, but Democrats say they erode the landmark 1965 law that helped pave Obama's path in politics.
"Across the country, Republicans have led efforts to pass laws making it harder, not easier, for people to vote," he said, relating anecdotes of voters turned away because they didn't have the right identification or because they needed a passport or birth certificate to register.

He makes me physically sick and I am sure he makes my blood pressure go up. And the idiot republicans sit back and let him talk instead of showing by facts what a lying POS he is.
How much longer, Lord???
Does the charlatan’s base have to have ID to get their welfare checks, disability checks, rent subsidies, ObamaCare, free breakfast and lunches at school, etc. etc?
They have NO problem getting IDs to sign up for all the freebies, so obviously, they can all produce an ID to vote. It certainly won’t make it more difficult for the dead to vote Democrat, because they have eternal life at the polling place.
Our right to vote is negated by the rampant vote fraud that has been going on unabated for decades.
Common sense tells us that a right so fundamental to our liberty should be protected with at least the same amount of diligence used to protect credit cards from fraud. Only Democrats are so brazen about enabling vote fraud, with a bogus rationale that even a 5 year old can see through.
Hmmmm... think there's something missing...
Try this: Obama: Right to vote ILLEGALLY AND MULTIPLE TIMES under threat in the US"
There fixed it.

Florida TV Station Documents Ineligible Voters as DOJ Sues to Prevent State from Purging Rolls
How much more blatant can this administration be? The most thoroughly corrupt administration in the history of this country, yet NO ONE STOPS THEM!!!
This proves the Democrats are preparing to commit massive voter fraud in the mid terms
Obama is so full of it.
These race-based appeals are falling flat.
America isn’t about voting restrictions anymore.
However we have the opposite. Now there is a sort of racial preference which is being played, which America badly needs to address.
voter fraud under attack in US is more like like it
those Democrat bassturds think voter fraud is the way to impose their command over everyone
But that may be gone on the next Dem candidate (exc epting Hillary).
That's how I know she's not running and that the party has someone in the wings...just like Obama appeared out of nowhere.
And they are right. They say “elections have consequences”. Well, they really have consequences if you can get enough dead people to vote.
Until then all seats and offices will remain in the current hands.
Check and mate.
There is no constitutional “right to vote,” and Congress declaring there to be one does not create one.
And to think, some Republicans actually can be in the room without spitting in his face.
Democrats call Republicans evil and Republicans respond by politely disagreeing.
Typical Alinsky projectionism
There is no “right to vote”....It is NOT in the Constitution or Bill of Rights...
Voting is a privilege of the American citizens who maintain good citizenship and do not commit felonious acts.
Beat me to it...*L*
What a disgrace he is to this country.
Obama: Right to fraudulent vote under threat in the US
That would depend on the State. States control elections, if a State deemed it a Right, then it is. Though, I don’t know of any State where it is a Right in the general election.
95% of black Protestants voted for Obama...
I can’t believe a sitting president would say such an inflammatory, ridiculous thing. Not even Obama. What a immature, selfish jack wad.
He is flat out trying to stir the poo. He absolutely doesn’t give a rats patootie about what is good for this country. He’s a tinpot dictator wannabe.
Massive voter fraud is one of the bigger arrows in their quiver. With their system in place, and fully operating, they cannot lose any national election and democracy will be dead. Obama has brought them close to that goal and their hope is that he can carry them across the goal line.
I can never understand why showing an ID to vote is such a big deal. Here in Connecticut, I’ve had to show an ID to vote since I started voting in the late 1970’s.
And the woman I had to show it to was the mom of a high school friend who knew me for years but still had to see my ID.
I always assumed that ID’s were required everywhere. How wrong I was.
They at least needed an ID to go to a voting right's protest a few months ago. I should dig that story out, but it struck me one of the best definitions of IRONY that I had seen in awhile.
What astonishes me is that this guy,and people like him,are implying that these minorities are too stupid to figure out a way to prove their identity but whites have no problem doing just that.
I’d be insulted if I was black.
Hell, you can make it to the white hut without producing any kind of ID, so what’s everyone’s problem about being able to vote with no ID...hope I don’t need to add the sarcasm tag.
On a side note, I wonder how long it took shakedown al to get his tax free status approved.
Disgust, revulsion, loathing, I can’t use other words to describe my reaction to this pissant. Almost three more years of this sh*t.... I don’t know if I can take it.
Clown Prince nobama is the epitome of corruption...what a degenerate Freedom-despising ghoul. The freak should be in prison for his many crimes against the Constitution, Freedom and Truth.
The majority of Catholics voted for Obama... What is your point?
There. I fixed it.
Id be insulted if I was black.....No, you wouldn’t. You’d just chuckle and go knock out a white man (or woman probably).
shakedown al to get his tax free status approved....He STILL owes 8 million bucks .
Which he will never pay, and will never have the IRS go after him...I guess some animals are more equal
Well, it is the conservative right to vote that is under attack since voter fraud is accepted and encouraged by the left.
Actually this is preparation for Democrat loses in fall 2014, so the so called GOP racist voter ID requirments can be blasted for violating their ‘right to vote’ without ID...meaning they will be screaming again.
Left off cigs and alcohol..
I think what Obama means is, the right to vote is under threat in the US because people are going to force his hand and he’ll have to show his true absolute powers of dictatorship.
What he probably should of said to be more accurate would be, the right to pretend to have a vote in the US is under threat.
When we vote, we sign in and they match the signatures.
We should be using words/phrases like ‘disenfranchisement of citizen voters’ by ‘organized voting fraud’ that is ‘promoted’, and sometimes ‘subsidized’ by the Obama ‘regime’. We should throw out the word ‘administration’, and use ‘regime’ routinely. Words have emotional and psychological impact. The Soviets well understood this. We are in the middle of a propaganda war, and we keep thinking we're going to win with ideas.
I agree. Obama is the biggest pos to ever occupy the WH. May the communist, race baiter get what he deserves - malignant cancer.
I think Lil Bam means the right to vote multiple times is under threat. :-)
The OBUMBLER... serving up yet another warm bowl of $hit to the American public.
The KING of lying bastards.
[i]And the idiot republicans sit back and let him talk instead of showing by facts what a lying POS he is.[/i]
Because the idiot GOP are not adversaries. They are accomplices.
The difference between a Conservative and a Liberal.
If an Election was held and the Conservative Candidate led by one Vote that was later found to be cast by Illegal Invader, the Conservative Candidate would insist the that one Vote be set aside.
If the opposite happened and the Liberal Candidate led by that one Illegal Vote, the Liberal would run to the Courts looking for a sympathetic Judge.
Democrats and Liberals have no Honor, none.
He is clearly saying he is against securing the ballot. Reasonable attempts means the least bit of security the better. There has to be rules in place is his infantile temper tantrum is his way of saying... "Waaaaaaaaaaaa I want to be able to rig this election and there are goody two shoes that may catch me." Spoken like a Chicago thug; criminal Barack.
Right to vote fraudulently is under threat in the US.
That’s more like it.
