General Colin Powell is a registered republican… but he isn’t the self-hating token Uncle Tom that Allen West and other Black right-wingers show themselves to be. Voter ID laws backfired in 2012 and republicans are just further alienate them politically…
And that makes me soooooo HAPPY.
'Colon' Powell is talking out of his a**. Where did voter ID laws backfire, Marine Corpse Patty? Certainly not in my state. Everyone who showed up to vote in the poling place I worked, had the required photo ID.

What a total loser you are to spend so much time posting on message boards. Is is because you have few, if any, real friends or is it because this is the only way you can get attention? Either way, what a waste of time posting your asinine opinions and proclaiming to the world what a shallow thinker and man of little true accomplishment you are. Your thousands of opinions mean nothing. Like I said, what a total loser for a grown man to be such a babbling ass.
What a total loser YOU are to spend so much time on a discussion board READING what I post (how else would you know that I’m on here posting?)… Is it because you have so few friends, real friends? What a waste of your time reading my posts… and then posting a reply to it… you’re so shallow. My opinions mean nothing? And yet here you are reading them and posting a comment about them. Like you said, what a total loser you are to babble about my “Babbling ass”, LOL!

Whatever will these pitiful people do when their favorite President has to ride off into the sunset. He is all they know, and he is nothing to brag about. You have t feel sorry for people with such small interest spans.

If slick would've taken care of al queda after many attacks, Saddam after he gassed the Kurds... instead of attacking Mt. Carmel, Ruby Ridge and chasing interns..
Most Americans blame Clinton for al queda's build up to 9/11
Bush wouldn't have had to do the things he and congress agreed to do.
Screwball.
The Bush administration lied to congress, the American people, and the world. Period. There were no WMD's. If President George W. Bush would not have been playing cowboy on his ranch when he was warned of Al Qaeda's imminent attack 9/11 might not have happened.
President then attacked Iraq which had nothing to do with 9/11.

Syria says Kerry is a liar...

... Denies chemical attacks........of course Kerry can't admit to the chemical attacks from the rebels that Obama is backing with weapons and WMD's transported through Benghazi.

Why would Democrats not support knowing who votes?

Is it just accepted that the voter fraud leans toward their favor?

And I really would love to know:
How is a voter ID an obstacle to a black person?

No it wasn't. If you would use your head for something other than a hatrack. You would realize that it protects your vote also? These are typical Democratic Barack Hussein Obama voters. "Why are you voting for Obama"? "Cause he's gonna gimme stuff". "What stuff? "Stuff from his stash", "You know Obama's stash?

Mr. Powell considers himself a republicant - but because you had such loser candidates, he did not vote down party lines in the last elections.
Like many republicants.
Powell voted his ideology and his skin color. He has had a hard on for Republicans for over a decade. Ever since he had a falling out with W, he's been to the left of John McCain, which is one step to the right of socialism.
Powell's an interesting study. Conservatives disowned him years ago. Republicans can't count on him for any support and you libtards don't trust him because he's a military man. He's basically meaningless.

Voter fraud is very rare.

Republicans are creating a cure where there is no problem. Republicans don't want minorities and young people voting. Neither group will vote for their ideology.

People that live paycheck to paycheck may not be able to afford ID. People that don't have transportation to get ID will be disenfranchised.

Has the President gotten us into a war he can't win yet? He called Bush names, and he is worse. Now where did he put that Nobel Peace Prize? Hmmm. What a phony SOB.

What war has President Obama gotten America into? How is President Obama worse than President Bush. Did President Obama stated two wars that lasted ten plus years. What country has he invaded?

Obama expanded the war in Afghanistan, aided in Egypt, and now is involving America in Syria. None of his wars are winnable, all are to get his scandals off the front page, and that isn't working either. We might have had a worse C in C in the past, but I don't remember any. BTW, how does a man who ran against a dumb war in Iraq make the case for military intervention in Syria? He can't.

Yes, President Obama initially expanded the war in Afghanistan. The war that President Bush started. President Obama is going to end that war. President Obama never sent troops to Egypt. If he takes action in Syria it will not be unilateral. Non of his wars are winnable because he doesn't have any wars. There are no scandals either. President George W. "mission accomplished" Bush was a worse commander in chief. You have a short memory. I'm sure that President Obama will explain the reason for military intervention if it happens.
