OBAMA CAMPAIGN SUES TO RESTRICT MILITARY VOTING
by Mike Flynn at Brietbart
President Barack Obama, along with many Democrats, likes to say that, while they may disagree with the GOP on many issues related to national security, they absolutely share their admiration and dedication to members of our armed forces. Obama, in particular, enjoys being seen visiting troops and having 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?
On July 17th, the Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and the Ohio Democratic Party filed suit in OH to strike down part of that state's law governing voting by members of the military. Their suit said that part of the law is "arbitrary" with "no discernible rational basis."
Currently, Ohio allows the public to vote early in-person up until the Friday before the election. Members of the military are given three extra days to do so. While the Democrats may see this as "arbitrary" and having "no discernible rational basis," I think it is entirely reasonable given the demands on servicemen and women's time and their obligations to their sworn duty.
Comment from the worthy site Blackfive:
Flynn cites the National Defense Committee which reports:
for each of the last three years, the Department of Defense’s Federal Voting Assistance Program has reported to the President and the Congress that the number one reason for military voter disenfranchisement is inadequate time to successfully vote.
So here is a law actually trying to provide a little extra time to address the problem cited. Why the resistance from the Obama campaign and Democrats?
If the polls are to be believed concerning how the military is likely to vote, it wouldn’t favor Obama or the Democrats. And, of course, Ohio is a swing state. So they want no extra time allowed for the military to vote.
But hey, the military is still useful as props during photo ops and when they help burnish the C-i-C’s rep by killing bad guys like Osama. Voting? Yeah, not so much.
"We've Got Your Back"
Typical Liberal; divide people up into groups, then conquer. If you're illegal - . . . er . . . "undocumented" . . . you can vote. Photo ID is too much of a bureacratic nightmare to ask of people, so just let anybody vote, early and often. Unless you're in the military, of course. Some groups are more equal than others.
Thanks Barack. Don't do us any big favors, and don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out . . .
