When was the last time this old coot voted? What kind of I D did she use to get into the Hispital, or go for medical treatment paid for by the government? I bet she has some kind of photo identification. ACLU is using her, because she doesn't have a readily available birth certificate. If she wants to vote se can figure out how to get a photo ID.

It's about the economy and jobs.

How much is granny paying for groceries?

How much does granny pay for gas?

How much is granny going to pay for ObamaCare?

Why did Obama cut $500 million from granny's Medicare?

Granny knows that Obama is saddling her children and grandchildren and great grandchildren with debt.

Granny is concerned that Obama has never shown the ability to unite the American people.

Granny knows her doctor is now bound by the government health matrix and can not make his decision as to how to medically treat her. The government knows best!

Obama didn't visit his granny until she was on death's door. Poor granny Dunham.
"Obama learned of her death Monday morning while he was campaigning in Jacksonville, Florida. He planned to go ahead with campaign appearances. The family said a private ceremony would be held later."

Granny's a typical white person


What if an asian person talked about a typical black person?

What if a latino persona talked about a typical black person?

It's ok to be racist if you're obama.

NO in NOvember!

You need a photo id to buy chemicals in Chicago.

"A new state law requires those who buy industrial drain cleaners and other caustic substances to provide photo identification and sign a log."

You need a photo id to get into an Obama rally!

You need a photo id to travel on an airplane
(plus you have to take off your shoes, endure a patdown and go thru xray machine AND more importantly,we are raising a generation who have NEVER experienced flying on a plane without these intrusions! It's the NORM for them!)

Ofcourse, a photo id needs to be required to vote!

How silly to require an id for other things, but not voting.

Voters strongly believe that itís important for the government to create an environment that encourages economic growth and ensures economic fairness, but growth is seen as the higher priority. Most believe Romney champions growth, while Obama is more focused on fairness.

Amen, Its called a 'red herring'? Barack Hussein Obama needs all the illegal votes he can muster. My 100 yr. old Mother has a photo ID. She is a life-long Chicago Demorat, but wouldn't vote for Barack Hussein Obama, if he gave her free food stamps? It all rests on his stance on Life?

yea fairness by giving the hard working persons' money to the lazy!
This is what so many of his policies amount to! In the end when you are down and out -you will take what you can get! You are BEHOLDEN. this is where HE wants all of us! too bad many cannot heed the writing on the wall with this president!

GET AN ID GRANNY....if you want to vote! It is not that hard or expensive IF you are a citizen!

We do not need to have a system that is so important hurt by the nonsense of those who think an ID to vote is not necessary(ohhh it discriminates).......really you are the one doing this...you put US CITIZENS at risk by voting in one who you may know nothing about! OR rather do not care!!!!!!!! just doing what someone told you to do!

....this is exactly why Washington DC is suing Texas right now over the voter ID law! He needs all the dead people and non citizens to vote in order to win!

Actually why do we WANT a man running our country -that takes this stance and he sure does! Why would HE say, "the voter ID is a bad thing on so many levels."

It's a slanted play on the RACE CARD and protecting voter fraud avenues which both have been Hallmarks of the Dem party going back to the 1830s. The Dems cannot help it as it is in the Dem party's DNA.

This was a very biased article. Someone has an agenda, that's for sure. One thing bothers me, I live in DE and have had to show an ID every time I vote for years, but for some reason DE doesn't show up as a state that requires an ID. You have to have an ID just to buy allergy medicine anymore, to check into a hotel, to buy booze, to use a credit card around the holidays at least. The ACLU is wasting time and the states money, this issue was settled by the Supreme Court a few years ago. I think they are just like gnats, buzzing around and being a pest in the hopes that the states will just drop it due to the expense of litigation. For shame. What part about the states giving, for FREE, many with a free ride included, a picture ID to anyone who needs one? BTW - My elderly aunt, almost 90, has surrendered her license because she feels she's too old to drive safely, so I will make sure she has an ID to vote and drive her there if needed. Her younger sister who she lives with, only 88, still drives so she probably has a ride. Think about your relatives or neighbors, take them to get an ID if they need one. Thanks.

It just occurred to me, if it's Hispanics mostly who are disadvantaged, they HAVE to have a passport, how else do they get back and forth to see family in Mexico? Gotta have a passport to enter Mexico and to enter the US - Of course they may ONLY have a Mexican Passport, tsk, tsk, must not be legal and shouldn't be voting in the first place. Can't get SS or welfare without a picture ID either.

Your reTHUGlican Party isn't going to keep getting away with disenfranchising Dem voters with bogus "voter ID" laws. By now lots of people know this is voter fraud on the part of the Party of No.

Once again it's the voter's responsibility to "prove" something, if they're a Democrat. reTHUGlicans don't have to prove ANYTHING, of course, least of all their absurd or offensive claims.

Jesus, if you were any dumber you'd have to get someone to post FOR you. Where's your photo ID which identifies you as a member of the human species?:)
