Obviously it took utter morons to vote for the self-serving lord marshal b. h. obama. If the mesmerized morons are dumb enough to vote for an azzhat who launched his political career from the home of the communist-terrorist bill ayers then they are dumb enough not to feel the pain of waiting to vote for the sleazy trinket promises of b. h. obama.

I watched President Obama last night with Chris Matthews and let me tell you… I see why you tea-baggers are so frustrated.

He is brilliant and strong and when he speaks he commands the room. That audience was completely captivated by his every word. And let me say that Matthews hit him with a lot of hard-hitting great questions. And after all you idiots have said over the past 5 years you see a President who has more resolve and is ready to hit back.

I love it.

Since the longest voting lines are typically in minority communities, the GOPasaurs don't WANT to improve it.

If anything, they want to make the lines even LONGER hoping people will get frustrated and leave rather than vote.

Voter suppression is the ONLY way the GOPasaurs can win going forward.

As opposed to voting for a cowardly draft dodger who thought it was more important to serve his cult than his country! Neither choice was acceptable.

The long lines to vote Democrat in Republican
controlled states are deliberate. Not only that,
but in those Republican states the people
standing in the long lines in Democratic areas
will be harassed by the fascist state police.

For instance, some elderly person who has
a hard time standing in the line for six hours
or more will not be allowed to have someone else
take his or her place for a few minutes. The
person who tries to do that will be harassed by
the fascist Republican state police.

Any person bringing a drink of water or
a sandwich to a thirsty or hungry person
who has been standing in the voting line
six or eight hours will be harassed by
the fascist Republican state police and
probably tasered or tear gassed.

Republican-controlled states are fascist
states.

Republicans are fascists. Pure and simple.

No, the just close polling places in minority districts to ensure wait times of 10-20 hours.

If they only voted once, and not let the dead vote then the lines would not be long.

So you're saying that when those panthers dressed in military style garb, toting big sticks, scared those white folks away from the polls, that was ok?

Those " New Black Panthers" were only there for security, just in case some honky wants to depress the minority vote. ;)

Voter intimidation: GA:... Voter intimidation: AZ: Tuscon, Arizona, Hispanic voters intimidated with man carrying a gun, and others with video cameras

Fulton County (Atlanta). About 20 senior citizens, many of them using wheelchairs or walkers, were turned away from the polling place at Wheat Street Towers when it opened and told to come back later, said the manager of the senior housing complex and one of the residents. A sign was posted at the entrance to the polling place, inside the complex, that voters 75 and older could vote only between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. even though voting hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. A spokesman for the Fulton County elections office said,“That is completely incorrect.” He said voters with disabilities and 75 and older are allowed to go to the front of the line between those hours but there is no limit on when they can vote.

Lawsuits were filed today in U.S. Federal District Court, charging New Mexico Republicans with criminal violations of the U.S. Voting Rights Act. The lawsuits stem from a series of intimidation attempts on new, minority voters in Albuquerque

"For the past two weeks the students of Georgia Southern University in Statesboro have been the victims of challenges to their registration, threats, intimidation, and have faced police officers stationed outside and inside early polling places all because they had the nerve to want to vote in local elections.

In Philadelphia, the Republican Party hired local people including down-and-out addicts as neighborhood poll watchers, paid the poll watchers to challenge their neighbors' voting, and sent visiting teams of burly enforcers in window-tinted vans in a mixed strategy of intimidation, pay and misinformation to suppress voting on November 2, according to a Brooklyn law student working with Election Protection.

I used to work close to Wheat Street towers, its in the Sweet Auburn district... trust me, there were no honkies there either voting or working the voting place. There is nothing there but black folks. If any mistakes were made, it was black on black. Didn't matter anyway, no honky has been elected to anything in that part of town in about 40 years.
