Skip to comments.Obama sues to restrict military vote in swing state
Posted on 08/02/2012 4:55:09 PM PDT by Mortrey
Obama, in particular, likes to be seen visiting troops and photos taken with members of our military. So, why is his campaign and the Democrat party suing to restrict their ability to vote in the upcoming election?

(sorry, administrator...this is a blog post.)
No outrage of the Obama horde should surprise us.
This is the Chicago mob come to Wash DC with a continuing tsunami of MSM support and cooperation.
Where is that sorry son of a ***** Holder? I thought he couldn’t sleep at night worrying that someone would be “disenfranchised” and not allowed to vote. What a bunch of lowlife bass turds we have in this regime. ANYONE who votes for any DemocRAT IS NOT AN AMERICAN. They can KMA!!!
Common Libspeak for “we don't like the law” and don't care what the people, through their elected reps voted for.
If they can vote anytime up until the election why do they need until 3 days after anyway?
Recall Florida 2000.
Six Reserve units were called to active duty -- out-of-state and out-of-country -- on short notice the week before the election.
The notice was sent after early voting had ceased. And they were shipped out before Tuesday. Thus, the personnel were unable to exercise their constitutional right to vote.
The Gore campaign knew that Florida was going to be razor-close -- and the key to the election. And the Clinton administration bent heaven and earth to cheat out a victory for Gore.
Had Florida had a 3-day window like Ohio's, those reservists could've voted.
So, Ohio can count on some reserve units being called up....if they can get that 3-day window closed.
There is no depth to which the Democrat party will not willingly sink.
If an "ordinary" citizen can vote in that way up until "X" why can't members of the Armed Forces...who have endured,and *are* enduring,so much suffering in the last 10 years...vote until "X + 3"????????
I was deployed to Iraq in the fall of 2004 but before leaving I requested an absentee ballot and I am still waiting for it. After getting to Iraq my absentee ballot was the last thing on my mind.
Because allowing voting after the election is prone to democrat criminal activity. The Ohio laws says it allows early voting, just how early the article doesn’t say, but if the period is long enough to accomodate solders abroad what problem do you see with it?
Please send this story far and wide.
1. I am not surprised.
2. I can imagine.
Thank you for your service. You have my family's everlasting gratitude.
Nobody can vote anytime up until election day.
From the article:
Currently, Ohio allows the public to vote early in-person up until the Friday before the election. Members of the military three extra days to do so.The Obama campaign is objecting to the three extra days before the election during which the military, but not other voters, can cast an early ballot.
“If they can vote anytime up until the election why do they need until 3 days after anyway?”
Ahh....I take it you haven’t experienced the occasional, and frequently unexpected, vagaries of military service.
Watch for when the military absentee ballots fail to get anywhere on time.
I see I had it wrong. In my state people can vote early weeks before an election so this isn’t an issue.
“If they can vote anytime up until the election why do they need until 3 days after anyway?”
Because of mail-in ballots. The military mail system (from war zones) can take an erratic amount of time. They were trying to give our guys a chance to get their ballots in.
In the last election, my husband requested his ballot 6 weeks out. He got it just a couple of days before the election. No idea if his vote counted or not.
And yes. He was seriously p*ssed.
>> Watch for when the military absentee ballots fail to get anywhere on time.
I would expect the GOP/Romney machine to be on top of this.
They want crazy people, illegal aliens, hardcore felons, homeless people they bribed with cigarettes to vote, but not people in the military?
Isn’t Obamaland great? :)
Now go pay your taxes - your government is broke.
Just sent Romney the article and asked for them to PLEASE KEEP THIS in the news!!
WHy not all of us do that. As easy as posting here.
REmember to send them the link to WashingtonTimes.
They had better be. It is a real thing and it is an old Clinton and Gore maneuver.
Romney’s people have to first believe it and then tune into the facts.
If they get to the point of realizing the Goebbels trick, lies and more lies,then they’ll take action.
If they want that vote.
Florida was the problem in that awful election.
Disenfranchising the military (and their spouses) is the most corrupt action in an election.
It is bad.
One can verify that just by the correlative amount of (appropriate) profanity on this thread.
But.. What about the gay troops? He’s suppressing their vote!
Sent to Romney, too.
Also to The Blaze, and Drudge.
But, I think all stinkin’ congresscritters need to know WE KNOW and we’re PISSED.
You’re assuming they are trying to win.
Take heart. That same social media that jack arse used to his benefit in 2008 is not more normal to more of us. We can use it paste egg on his face 24/7 when he pulls crap like this.
is NOW more normal...darned typos.
They learned it from a Republican; Abraham Lincoln did it with targeted troop leaves and deployments to beat McClellan.
Oh, I love some of these posts. I’ve learned new words, which describe that nobama creature to a T. Keep up the language lessons. LUV IT! I’m with you...my time in uniform was a conflict, not classified a war.
Obama has to go. This is outrageous.
Another article about it here.
Pitchfork/hot tar and feathers time yet?
Dang! The Dems never seem to see the bottom of how low they are willing to go.
bump for later review
Good God they are evil.
This is why I say if hispanics start voting for republicans, the democrats will hunt down illegals and denigrate them as law breakers and gang members.
I was stationed overseas in 1976...
When the absentee ballots came on base in early Oct for the Nov election we had 10 days to go and vote before they were sent back to the States...
When I went by appointment to see my “Election Officer” to vote he put my ballot on his desk and covered part of it with a book and held it there waiting for me to mark it...
all I could see was the line for Jimmy Earl Carter...
I asked to see all of my ballot and to vote in private...
The (feel free to place bad words here) told me that as I was from another country I did not understand how people voted in America..
As this was the very first election I had voted in having just become an American citizen the year before... 1975..it was important for me and I was thrilled to be able to actually vote...
He persisted but he may have not realized thatr I probably knew more about American civics than he did having learnt much in order to qualify to be naturalized...
I knew for instance there should be at least one more name and Jim Crow was dead..
As I had also been weaned on the Australian Ballot, the secret ballot, and he was not going to allow me my Constitutional rights, I began to educate this young officer (me a humble NCO)..
I told him that yes I was from another country, and it was true that I had never voted in America, but I had voted BEFORE I came to America and the process was much the same, and in secret...
I explained what the Australian Ballot was and that I had a right under the Constitution to vote in private and without undue influence from any one party...
I told him that I did not desire to vote for Jimmy Carter and I would like to see the names of the other candidates...
He told me that I had refused an opportunity to vote and to return to my duty section...
I was not rude to him but had spoken quietly and as respectfully as I could although throughout I had felt like crying..
Was I punished for “disobeying an officer when it was my duty to do so” ???
In a word yes...
although they couldnt get me for refusing to vote for Carter, they couold do other things to me..
for 6 weeks before Christmas extra staff was required at the base Post Office to handle all the packages from home...
Usually slackers or low ranking servicemen were excused from their squadrons and assigned to the task..
I was NCO of my section and had a computer job few others knew how to do..
I had continual high performance reports and was relied upon to keep my part of the mission going..
However the very next week I found myself with orders cut assigning me for indefinate duty at the Post Office...
My supervisor tried to get me out of it but no dice I was to go...
It is amazing how God will turn some evil against us to our good..
The mail was only delivered in the morning and we spent most of the day putting it up..
There was a long line at lunchtime for mail and then again about 4-4.30PM
Since all the mail was already up by about 1-2PM the rest of the day was easy...
I found that the 2 permanent junior staff left work early to attend college at the local base Elementry School...
Since I had already been going to the University of Maryland on basse my new boss told me I could go early too..
There were 2 classes every night...1 at 4.30 the other at 6PM
as I usually worked until 5 or after at my normal duty I could only take a 6PM class...
Now I could take 2...back to back classes ..
My new boss usually let his college men go at about 4 and handled the later line on the days they had school with the other temp staff so I went at that time also and then when someone told him why a super troop like me was there he let me go at 3;30 which gave me time to pick up my son from the day care sometimes...
While we had nothing to do during the day after the mail was up the staff would read a book or study...
Our boss encouraged us to study...
I was able to get 6 extra credit hours finished in the time they left me at the Post Office yes I didnt go back after Christmas like I should have...
When my orders came down at the end of January I went back to my duty section and the shambles it was now in 2 days after the end of class...
Now you ask yourself...
Would Nana having stood up for herself at age 27 and in a volunrable situaton and could have been jailed for disobeying an officer really roll over and play dead and vote for Willard Jimmy Carter Romney when she is older and wiser and now has nothing to fear ???
That is much too low for a bow. He’s kissing his hand or planned to. He is disgrace, a disgusting little maggot, The people that voted for him are just as bad if not worse. The Communist media needs to be tarred and feathered and driven out of the country for hiding the truth about this evil son of a b...
Guys, this is all part of their plan to unionize and disenfranchise the military. It was done during the Soviet Revolution. Read history.
He and the democrats should NOT receive ONE military vote.
Were a patriot running on our side, he would use this to the hilt.
Romney, IF he had any spine at all, should be jumping all over this with ads showing that our ‘commander in chief’ (and I use that word loosely in o’s case) loves our military so much that he is suing ot restrict them from excercising their basics rights
