    The Dems CLAIM to oppose voter ID laws because they allegedly make it harder for some people to vote. But they are totally against something that would make it easier for some military people to vote, because the military tends to vote strongly Republican. The Dems positions on voting have nothing to do with people's rights, and everything to do with getting more votes for themselves and less for Republicans, whether it's by vote fraud or trying to limit military votes.
    (Btw, remember too that during the recounts in Florida in 2000, at the very same time that the Dems were sanctimoniously proclaiming that 'every vote should count,' their lawyers were in court trying to get as many military ballots excluded on technicalities as possible. They care about nothing but their own power, and they don't care what they have to do, legal or illegal, ethical or totally corrupt, to get there.)

    Obama campaign sues Ohio over early voting law for military Published August 04, 2012

    There are liars,:) there are lying liars,:eek: there are congenital liars,:( and then there are democrat politicians!:rolleyes:


    In a move that puts new meaning to the term battleground, President Obama's re-election campaign and members of some military groups are on a collision course over voting rights in the critical state of Ohio.

    The Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee have filed a lawsuit to block a new state law allowing men and women in uniform to vote up until the Monday right before an election, while the cutoff on early voting for the rest of the public is three days earlier.

    Top Obama campaign officials told Fox News in interviews that the lawsuit in no way tries to restrict the voting rights of military members. All they are trying to do is even the playing field for all voters in Ohio by allowing early voting up until Monday for everyone, including members of the military, because they believe a two-tiered, early-voting process is unfair.

    "Along with the DNC and Ohio Democratic Party, this campaign filed a lawsuit to reinstate equal, early-voting rights for all Ohioans -- rights the Republican-controlled legislature arbitrarily stripped away this past year," Jim Messina, Obama's campaign manager, told supporters in an email.​

    Absolutely spot on.:thumbs:



    As evidenced by state politics in Wisconsin for the last year and a half, as I'm sure you well know.
