Michelle Obama: Vote Early In Case Your Toilet is Overflowing … or Something

October 22, 2012 at 2:06 pm (2012 Election, Early Voting, Election Day, First Lady, Michelle Obama, Photo ID, Toilet Overflow, Voting Booth)

How ever did people make it to the polls on past election days?

Michelle Obama is concerned that her core constituency won’t be able to figure out how to get to their polling place if something inconvenient happens – like say, your toilet overflows.

First Lady Michelle Obama encouraged her husband’s supporters to vote early, because you may find your “toilet overflowing” on Election Day.

“You can also tell people that they don’t have to wait until November the 6th to cast their ballots because you can do it early,” Mrs. Obama told a crowd Friday at the University of Wisconsin in Wausau.

“On Monday I led by example: I mailed in my ballot early,” she said.  “I voted for Barack Obama.  And I did it because I want to spend Election Day really working to turn out the vote, and that’s something that you may want to think about doing.”

“You wake up on Election Day—you might have a cold, babysitter gets sick, it’s raining, car broke down, I mean I could go on—toilet overflowing,” she said, to a laughing audience.  “There are so many ways to mess up a day when you don’t have a lot of time.”

Apparently, Democrats are not only too stupid to get themselves a proper photo ID when it comes to the elections, but they’re also too ignorant to locate a plunger in a reasonable amount of time.

What Voter Fraud? Maryland Democrat Quits Amid Revelations That She Voted in Two States

Remember when Eric Holder dismissed video evidence of how easy it was to perpetrate voter fraud by calling it ‘manufactured’?

A Maryland Democrat was recently revealed to have manufactured the ability to vote in two separate states – Maryland and Florida.  That is illegal.  It is fraud.  And she should be charged.
The Washington Post reports:

A Maryland Democratic candidate quit her congressional race Monday after her own party told state officials that she had committed fraud by voting in both Maryland and Florida in recent elections.

Wendy Rosen, a small-business owner running against freshman Rep. Andy Harris (R) in the Eastern Shore-based 1st Congressional District, released a statement saying that “with great regret, and much sorrow” she was resigning from the contest.

“The Maryland Democratic Party has discovered that Ms. Rosen has been registered to vote in both Florida and Maryland since at least 2006; that she in fact voted in the 2006 general election both in Florida and Maryland; and that she voted in the presidential preference primaries held in both Florida and Maryland in 2008,” wrote Yvette Lewis, the state party chair. “This information is based on an examination of the voter files from both states. We believe that this is a clear violation of Maryland law and urge the appropriate office to conduct a full investigation.”

Bryan Preston of PJ Media writes:

Democrats love to claim that voter fraud does not exist. That voter ID is not necessary. That voter ID is, in fact, voter suppression.

But suddenly Democrats have to admit that voter fraud exists. That’s really going to dent the narrative.

Their narrative has been more than dented, it’s non-existent. Voter fraud is real, it is prevalent, and it is a consistent Democrat tactic in elections.

Liberals Looking For Donations to "Overcome Pennsylvania’s Voter ID Law", Meanwhile Photo ID’s Can be Obtained For Free

August 22, 2012 at 4:37 pm (Chris Bowers, Daily Kos, DMV, Jim Crow, PennDOT, Pennsylvania, Photo ID, Poor, Voter Fraud, Voter ID)

An e-mail from Daily Kos Campaign Manager, Chris Bowers announces ‘big news’ regarding voter ID laws in Pennsylvania.  Bowers explains:

A huge coalition of 100+ labor and civil rights groups has come together to do the door knocking, phone banking and voter education necessary to make sure everyone in this must-win swing state can still cast a ballot.

At Daily Kos, we’re helping out by running online ads in Pennsylvania to sign up more than 1,000 volunteers so that this coalition has the people power it needs. Please, click here to contribute $3 to Daily Kos so that we can sign up the thousands of volunteers needed to overcome Pennsylvania’s voter ID law.

First off, if you live in Pennsylvania, please put your money back in your pocket.  Instead of attempting to ‘overcome’ a law, put forth the effort to actually follow said law.

Second, why not sign up an army of volunteers to assist the citizens of Pennsylvania in obtaining their photo ID, as opposed to fighting a law that requires it?

Third, instead of donating $3 to the Daily Kos to fight an alleged effort at voter suppression, I’d like to offer better advice on how to fight that suppression … and it’s free.

Here it is – head down to your local DMV in Pennsylvania and obtain your very own photo ID for voting purposes.  It is of no cost to you, and the turnaround time for obtaining such ID is estimated at 10 days.  This gives one plenty of time to receive their ID to use legally in the November elections.

Voila!  No more suppression.  (If you still fill the need to donate, please consider a contribution to the Mental Recession as a show of appreciation for such sound advice).

The entire process is outlined on the PennDOT DMV website, which concludes with the following statement:

“… to receive your free photo ID for voting purposes. This verification process will take about ten days and does not require the payment of a fee.”

Claiming that a law requiring a person to prove the legality of their vote is voter suppression, is akin to calling laws against bank robbery a form of financial suppression.

The folks over at the Daily Kos and other liberals in general have long complained that the concept of a voter ID law would disenfranchise the poor.  For example, this entry cites statements from an advocacy group that claim the Pennsylvania voter ID law hearkens back to the ‘Jim Crow’ era, and would ‘keep the working poor … away from the polls’.

What better way to come to the rescue of the working poor than by asking them for money, as opposed to showing voters how to comply with the law for free?

Democrats Tried to Prevent Blacks and Hispanics From Attending Massachusetts Convention

June 4, 2012 at 9:00 am (CBC, Congressional Black Caucus, Democrat Convention, Eric Holder, Massachusetts, Minorities, Photo ID, Racism, Voter ID)

On Saturday, Massachusetts delegates met in their state’s Democrat party convention, and announced a requirement for attendance that can only be described as an active attempt to suppress minorities.

The statement below may come as a shock to our more sensitive readers, and we urge those with weaker stomachs to skip below to avoid a nauseating reaction. 

If you are prepared for the vile racism that is to follow, please proceed…

Page 14 of the Delegate’s Guide to the Massachusetts Democrat Convention reads, and we quote:

We apologize to our readers for having to read such strong racially charged language.  In the interest of accuracy however, the statement needed to be printed in its entirety.

That said, the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) and Eric Holder, the most vociferous of the groups that oppose photo identification on the grounds that it racially discriminates, will certainly take umbrage to such a requirement.

Earlier this year the CBC announced on the house floor that “voter ID laws popping up around the country are aimed at dissuading minority voters from voting”.  If that is the case, then the Democrats are clearly trying to dissuade minorities from attending their convention.

Just this past week, Holder backed up the charges of photo ID requirements as racist.

Via NPR:

On Wednesday, Holder told a gathering of the Congressional Black Caucus that “both overt and subtle forms of discrimination remain all too common and have not yet been relegated to the pages of history.”

Holder continued:

“If a state passes a new voting law and meets its burden of showing that the law is not discriminatory, we will follow the law and will approve that change. … When a jurisdiction fails to meet its burden in proving that a voting change will not have a racially discriminatory effect, we will object, as we have in 15 different cases.”

Critics complain that Holder is taking an unabashedly, and unethically, political stance against voter ID laws.

Will Holder object in this case?  With his having drawn a line in the sand, it is shocking to see his own party resort to such an ‘overt form of discrimination’.
