Obama: Right to vote under threat in the US
news.yahoo.com ^ | April 11, 2014 | JIM KUHNHENN

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.

Obama is the biggest liar to ever live in the WH. I refuse to call him "president". Every day I think that I can't possibly hate him any more than I already do, and every day he proves me wrong.

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.

The "right" to vote MORE THAN ONCE is under threat. As it should be. But not enough.

If Republicans were conducting any measurable voting fraud, the tone from DOJ would be very different.

Hmmmm... think there's something missing...

Try this: Obama: Right to vote ILLEGALLY AND MULTIPLE TIMES under threat in the US"

That's better.

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.

Badly.

He got like 99% of the black vote.

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.

Once the "voter fraud" meme has been advertised ad naseum unto acceptance by the people, cancelling the elections until such time as "adequate safeguards" can be instated will be a piece of cake.

Until then all seats and offices will remain in the current hands.

Check and mate.

Voting is a privilege of the American citizens who maintain good citizenship and do not commit felonious acts.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

We seem to have no one (or few at least) conservatives who know how to counter attack propaganda - and it is essential to do so.

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.

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.

"I want to be clear: I am not against reasonable attempts to secure the ballot. We understand that. There has to be rules in place," Obama said. "But I am against requiring an ID that millions of Americans don't have."

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.
