The Right is, of course, lying about this. They're pretending servicepeople are being denied something, when in fact we're just trying to level the playing field and make the same early voting rights available to EVERYONE.

Of course Righties want to deny Dems the vote, and are fighting bitterly to do so.

These right-wing tea-bagging bastards are so pathetic; they need to divide and spew hate to make them feel good inside. Trust me, the men and women of our military know that their Osama-killing Commander-in-Chief is making sure that their service and sacrifice isnít in vain. He will never lie them into an unnecessary war and they support him 100%.

Attention poop4brains!!! When it comes to the military EVERYONE is not the same especially when it comes to voting. Yepper obama and his marxist trash would like EVERY DUMBASS to vote and vote often and want their scheme attached to time allotted specifically to the military.
Of course this sleaze is to be expected coming from obama who was mentored by bill ayers. A bomb designed by bill ayers blew up killing his girlfriend and 2 other comrades...That bomb was intended for US Soldiers stationed at Fort Dix NJ and who would be attending a dance with civilians...Obviously b. h. obama's judgment to have a very long term association with his mentor bill ayers shows without any doubt b. h. obama has no respect whatsoever for The US Military...NONE.

Trying to Suppress the Military Vote by bringing a Lawsuit against their early voting IS NOT making it more accessible dumbazz.


If Obama was honest about this, he'd simply ask the legislature to pass another law expanding early voting to Everyone else BUT He's NOT doing that. It's like taking away all handicap Ramps and claiming you're not going to install them until ALL can have a ramp.

2000 deja vu! Nobama getting advice from al gore!

Deployed sailors based out of Jacksonville mailed their early ballots on time, but They were on smaller ships that did not have a US post office on board. The ballots arrived on time but lawyers for Algore didn't allow them to be counted because the mail wasn't offically post marked until the mail reach a landbases post office several days later.

Democrats & Obama sue to suppress military vote

August 6, 2012
By Arlen Williams

by the Associated Press:
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)ó Fifteen military groups are opposing a federal lawsuit in Ohio brought by President Barack Obama's campaign because they say it could threaten voter protections afforded to service members, such as the extended time they have to cast a ballot.

Obama's campaign and Democrats filed the lawsuit last month against Ohio's top elections official in a dispute over the battleground state's law that restricts early, in-person voting during the final three days before Election Day.

The campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party contend the law unfairly ends in-person voting for most Ohioans three days earlier than it does for military and overseas voters.

Obama spits on the Military. Only a marxist destroyer would try to Take Away voting access from our fighting men & women overseas.

President Obama goes out of his way to appear to support the troops. But when it comes to voting, he would like to keep them out of the fight.

The Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party are suing the critical swing state of Ohio to strike down a law that makes it easier for members of the military to vote. Under the law, people in uniform may cast early ballots in person up to the day before an election, instead of the previous Friday cutoff for other voters.

Democrats have a transparent political motive. A May 2012 Gallup survey showed Mr. Obama trailing Mitt Romney among veterans 58 to 34 percent. "About a fourth of men are veterans," Gallup reported, "and it is their strong skew toward Romney that essentially creates the GOP candidate's leading position among men today."

The Democrats' suit alleges the Buckeye State's law is "arbitrary" with "no discernible rational basis," but it is a response to a very real problem. "It's truly difficult to vote," an active-duty service member told The Washington Times. "The military tries hard to help us out with awareness and links to state voting sites but most troops don't exercise their franchise because it's too hard."

Obama spits on the Military.

Obama Attempts To Suppress Ohio Military Vote

Politics: The administration likes to use soldiers for photo-ops but now, in a critical battleground state, they want to restrict the extra time for service members who protect our right to vote to cast theirs.

The administration showed its true appreciation for military service when, on July 17, the Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party filed suit in that swing state to strike down part of the state's law governing voting by members of the military that gives them extra time to cast their ballots.

Ohio is one of 32 states that allows early voting in person or by mail without an excuse.

Obama spits on the Military.

Obama will do whatever is best for him. If it means restricting the ability of military personnel to vote, so be it. He has always been a win at any cost Chicago politician. Another example of his leadership skills to divide the country.

Repeating stupidity is your only game. LMAO!





BLOCKING the Military from Voting is NOT making it more accessible dummy. Only a Jackass would claim that taking away Handicap Ramps until ALL get their ramps is the right thing to do!
