Report: Obama Campaign Sues To Restrict Military Voting

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.
The National Defense Committee reports:
[f]or 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.
I think its unconscionable that we as a nation wouldn’t make it as easy as possible for members of the military to vote. They arguably have more right to vote than the rest of us, since it is their service and sacrifice that ensures we have the right to vote in the first place.
If anyone proposes legislation to combat voter fraud, Democrats will loudly scream that the proposal could “disenfranchise” some voter, somewhere. We must ensure, they argue, that voting is easy and accessible to every single voter. Every voter, that is, except the men and women of our military.
Make no mistake, the Democrat lawsuit is intended to disenfranchise some unknown number of military voters. The judge should reject it with prejudice.
The Washington Times is also pointing a finger at Obama and asking, “How in the hell COULD you?”
The military has NEVER thought Obama was ever anything other than a long, skinny turd.
I’ve pointed out in the past that something close to 3/4s of the military vote goes to Republicans for good damn reason. It’s sixty percent against him now, and don’t worry that number will be going up, up and away.
I’ve also pointed out that when it comes to Obama and the military, “silence is golden”:
The military thinks Obama is a loser and Obama KNOWS that our troops are on to him. Which means the president who has done more to allow illegal immigrants to vote than any president shows us what he thinks about allowing actual American citizens who have literally fought to defend their Constitution voting.
This is the easiest reason to offer to prove that Democrats – who call us “racists” for trying to keep illegitimate people such as illegal immigrants from voting – are full-of-feces hypocrites. Because rest assured, if Hispanics voted Republican, Democrats would be going flat-out psycho to keep every single one of them from being able to vote.
