Former President Barack Obama says he's troubled by the onslaught of new state election laws that have passed in the wake of the 2020 presidential election, adding that rhetoric delegitimizing the voting process is a "threat to democracy."
In a Friday interview with Good Morning America, Obama said, "We're now seeing state legislatures try to further suppress the vote or allow partisan politics to infect voting results and election results. That troubles me."
A number of Republican-led states, such as Texas and Georgia, have introduced new legislation tighten or restricting rules around voting, arguing that these measures would protect the right to vote and combat voter fraud.

Zer0’s opinion is ALWAYS the polar opposite of what it should be.
This from a walking, talking threat to personal freedom and our republic.
Democracy should never have been a word we use to describe our Republic and Government.
It’s commie speak.
They need the foreign vote to steal the country from the citizens.
Threat to democrats I think he meant
As president for 8 year and time as a congressman and senator, and attending some highend universities, you would think he might have learned we are a representative republic and not a democracy.
Those deliberate liars always re-label their evil as the opposite. Ending vote suppression means stealing elections and destroying the votes of Trump loving voters from now on.
Fixing the broken Senate means destroying the safety valve of the filibuster in order to steamroll Marxism without anyone to stop them.
We have a Republic, thanks be to God, and not a Third World democracy of an ignorant leftist mob crushing the rights of the minority (us)—SO FAR.
is it a BIGGER threat than his Chinese-made quillotines,
his testing them with Comey,
or his use of DRONES to murder conservatives.
soon, most Americans will think not.
When push comes to shove, Zero is a stone cold liar.
In a Friday interview with Good Morning America, Obama said, “We’re now seeing state legislatures try to further suppress the vote or allow partisan politics to infect voting results and election results. That troubles me.” …. . . except when the early voting and greater-than-100% voter “turnouts” in certain cities helped you get “re-elected” in 2012, right Barry? That was infecting voting/election results and suppressing actual votes, but since it helped you, that was good voter suppression.
Frankly, I don’t know why he is worried. We have gun laws nobody pays attention to. We had laws in place for the last election ... and even the SUPREME COURT said those didn’t make a difference. What good are laws that are never enforced ... he need not worry.
If one follows the path the audits produce they will lead to Obama and his handlers...
Not many give a 💩 what obxxx says.
ObaMao in his ilk thinks voting should be public and counting should be done in secret, by the elites who have a vested interest in the outcome. Normal Americans think voting should be secret and private, but that counting should be public and accountable to ensure the integrity of the process.
Hes been taking part in all this upheaval for some time... speaking out now means he’s been in on it.. this individual.has done a lot of damage to this country..
‘Threat to Democracy’
“Democracy” = rule by the Democrat Party. Honest elections are a threat to that. Makes sense.
The Constitution says he can’t be President.
That’s why he hates it.
As you say, he has nothing to bitch about as no one will uphold it.
Well, he is a true believer. He truly believes that blacks are too stupid to be able to figure out how to get a picture ID and that they cannot figure out how to use the internet.
Barrack O Bark Bark. BIG MIKE needs to put the leash back on the poodle.
