Unreal… Obama Camp Sues to Restrict Military Votes From Counting

He may not want them to vote…
But they make a good photo-op.

The Obama Campaign is suing to keep military votes from counting.
Breitbart reported:

On July 17th, the Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party filed suit in OH to strike down part of that state’s law governing voting by members of the military. Their suit said that part of the law is “arbitrary” with “no discernible rational basis.”

Currently, Ohio allows the public to vote early in-person up until the Friday before the election. Members of the military are given three extra days to do so. While the Democrats may see this as “arbitrary” and having “no discernible rational basis,” I think it is entirely reasonable given the demands on servicemen and women’s time and their obligations to their sworn duty.

Is it any wonder that US veterans overwhelmingly support Mitt Romney over Barack Obama?

    More treasonous activity from the Occupier-in-Chief’s thugocracy.

    The Romney camp needs to call this out. They can’t take legal action because Eric the Red stands in the way.

    This crap has got to stop – as our enemies say – by any means necessary.

  • neverends

    And the dems/Obama are not running a totalitarian regime? When will it ever end?
    EVERYONE better make sure that not a single person doesn’t somehow get to the polls in November to vote the entire regime out of office or we can all kiss this country goodbye!!

    This should be the final straw for making sure we get rid of the Marxists currently running this country!

  • kato

    I would just have assumed that a commander-in-chief of Subprime’s stature (He killed bin Laden, you know.) would have 100 percent of the military voting to re-elect him.

    Certainly the drone operators will be voting for him. And the Pentagon brass that has embraced sodomite soldiers with utter fealty. When it comes to asskissing a president with a liberal cause, no one takes second place to our generals.

  • Mad Hatter

    More proof that the Dems hate our Military, and they hate fair Elections.

    The only way they can win is to stack the cards in their favor.

    Either by disenfranchising our Military, or fighting to prevent ID checks at the polling places.

  • There is something big planned, and it won’t be good, hence the reason they do not want early voting.

  • Of course, #8 is JMO

  • Texas_Treeroach

    If sending out the ballots ‘too late to be counted’ doesn’t work effectively, then there’s only one thing left to do this time: restrict the voting of the military.

    Every day we ask ourselves: “Is there anythng more despicable that this Administration can do?”
    And the answer continues to be “YES”.

  • SeniorD

    And that’s the way it is … rather than face a military with indisputable favoritism for ABO (Anybody But Obama), the Communists (aka Social-Democrats aka Demodonks aka Jacka$$es) pull the right for the military by making it even more difficult to cast ballots. Next up … a ‘National Emergency’ that requires “Martial Law’ to prevent large groups of people (i.e., more than 3 people) from gathering in public places (i.e., polling places) until ‘after the emergency has dissipated.

    Please tell me why we had a revolution. Wasn’t it about taxation, representation and complaints against the government in power?

  • Shawn

    If you don’t vote for obama then your vote won’t count.

  • conservative dude

    I just wrote another check to Mr. Romney. If this pisses you off then you should do the same.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    I would rejoin:

    Is it any wonder Obama wants to keep our troops as far from the United States as possible, and to put them in harm’s way as much as possible, and to deny them survivable ROE as much as possible, and to give them no discernible objective other than “Stay here. Be nice to the Muslims while training them and equipping them with the best training and equipment in the world — and when the people you are training kill quite a few of you each month with your own weapons and training… continue to SIT. STAY. GOOD DOG.”

    Is it any wonder?

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Oh, and troops? Part of “be nice to the Muslims” means don’t ever mention the Gospel of Christ Jesus. (Feel free to convert to Islam, though! That’s being nice!)

  • AuntieMadder

    Currently, Ohio allows the public to vote early in-person up until the Friday before the election. Members of the military are given three extra days to do so. While the Democrats may see this as “arbitrary” and having “no discernible rational basis,” …

    …they’re totally cool with voters who can’t prove with a picture ID that they are who they say they are and that they reside where they say they reside. They’re so cool with those voters that they urge them to vote early, vote often, and to spread their votes in as many districts as possible.

    Shawn commented: “If you don’t vote for obama then your vote won’t count.”

    Nor will it be counted. It might even end up in the trunk of Al Franken’s car.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    But most of all: STAY. Stay halfway across the globe from the America that is being, as promised, “fundamentally transformed”.

    No, troops. Your obligation due to your oath doesn’t really mean jack squat. You don’t really have to defend the Constitution of the United States of America from all enemies, foreign and domestic. Especially not domestic.

    You have to SIT. Stay. Be killed while training your killers and refrain from ever telling them the truth of Christ. Just stay there and away from, say, our ACTUAL FUC^ING BORDERS, and the nation whose citizens you joined to protect. Looks like you just joined to STAY AWAY and be killed ad infinitum.

    Because America needs more flashmobberies, robberies, and beatings.

    America needs more MS-13!

    America needs more Zetas! Beheadings!

    No, you all need to stay where Obama tells you to stay. And be killed. While training and arming your killers, who are bound by Islam to kill you with them, while pretending to be your friends.

    Great Leap Forward II: American Mao x10 edition will be much easier if you just:

    SIT! STAY!

    The Romney campaign should simply put out ads….

    Dont want to show id’s to allow voter fraud

    Dont want to allow military to vote.

    Then show Obama saying Bush was irresponsible for $9 trillion debt….

    Putting this pre-Armageddon into play was even being pushed by Bill, Hilary, and Albright, and the whole Clinton administration, in 1998.

    And here we are, three administrations later. All our best and brightest soldiers and commanders, training and arming Muslims to kill them.

    The Communists plan very long-term.

    Clinton in ’98, Stanley Ann Dunham in ’61. Cloward and Piven in 1966.

    We’re where they were taking us, right now.

    We’re not yet, but VERY CLOSE, to where Ayers and Dohrn, Jarret and Holder, Pelosi and Reid, are taking us.

    And I can almost smell the mass graves from here.


  • Fuquay Steve

    The system be broke – the power to govern rests with those that are to be governed… there is no higher power than that ….so cheating, stealing and depriving votes is ok if the public permit it (forget about virtues and such – they don’t pertain to the ‘public arena’). Cannot rely on the courts – they have become political tools (yes including Roberts). All that is needed to cheat, steal and win is an executive order. There are no checks and balances in this administration.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Obama and his upper echelon military leadership have put the lives of our young men and women in the armed services overseas at risk.

    Petraeus has been one of the big players in making the rules of engagement more Islamic Fascist friendly. Before anyone here starts spewing hatred at me, you better look at what Petraeus has done.

    Don’t forget the big role the Progressive mag Rolling Stone had in General Stanley McChrystal’s stepping down. (If you don’t think, it was a setup you haven’t been paying attention during the last 4 years of media frenzy over the Big Zero.)

    Look at Afghanistan and Iraq, both countries are solidly in the hands of Islamic Fascist terrorists and Obama celebrates it. Why? What’s good about it? Is he celebrating Sharia or the oppression of women? Is he in favor of beheading and stoning of Christians and Jews?

    Pray for our young men and women in the armed serves; they have been betrayed. They are heroes. If you can, donate to organizations that work to make their lives better.

    There was a time that our military leadership was made up of heroic figures, who stood with their troops. Now, not so much.

  • Chris

    The headline should be changed from “Unreal” to “Not Real,” because the lawsuit actually says the exact opposite of what Mike Flynn reported. Obama is not suing to take early voting away from military members; he is actually suing to EXPAND early voting to all citizens of the state.

    Chik-fil-A harasser gets served his walking papers


  • Lillymae

    I got news for you Breitbart haters; theres more truth on the conservative side than the bunch of lying demorat Obie/ Soros lovers on the left.

  • Patty


    “Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A,” reads a Aug. 2 company statement.

    “Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company,” the release from Vante, a biotech company, based in Tuscon, Ariz., continues.

    Smith videotaped himself harassing the employee, who replied gracefully to his jibes about Chik-fil-A’s corporate support for popular conservative groups.

    The “anti-gay breakfast sandwich always tastes better because it is full of hate,” Smith charged as he waited in his car to be served.

    “Chik-fil-A is a hateful corporation. … The corporation gives money to hate-groups,” he told the employee.

    He posted the video, prompting push-back from many viewers.

    Chris and Practical Jane–Thank you; however, most of the people who are answering here are like our other GOP members–they can’t handle the truth!!! I live in Ohio, and our GOP governor and his cronies in the House and Senate are trying their best to screw anyone who is a Dem or an Indie!!! The Dems are trying to make voting easier for all–as it should be, given it is our right!! Oh, for the bashers out there, I am an Indie, and in my 40 years of voting I am fairly evenly split between Dems and Reps; however, that may come to an end. The Reps are getting way too conservative for me. They’re scary!!!

    [“The U.S. President, Barack Obama, has concealed the true leader
    of the Muslim Brotherhood and these days it is showing no shame
    with its undue pressure on the junta to leave it that way to the
    Muslim Brotherhood.” To speak thus is a liberal parties close to the
    Egyptian activist who organized the first demonstrations in Egypt

    [“People here are against the United States helping Ennahda,” a
    journalist told Totten. “All Americans who come here are against
    the Islamists, but the American government is supporting them. I

    and I’m proud of it, but I’m not proud of this party.”]

    Making votes count

    Study says Ohio’s voting system has important safeguards

    [Earlier this month, the nonpartisan Military Voters Protection Project
    named Ohio one of 15 “ all-star states” for helping ensure that military
    members get their votes counted. In the last 12 months, Husted’s office
    has set up a system in which military ballots are sent electronically, but
    must be printed out and returned by mail. Each is given a unique
    tracking number, which the service member can use to track his or her
    ballot and see that it is received.]

    I have hand-cuffed the troops with ever increasing Rule of Engagement. If any of my troops step out of line they will find themselves in the stockade!

    The d-cRAT socialists’ efforts at suppressing the vote of those in the US military – particular those stationed outside the US – has been on-going for many years. In the 2008 and 2010 elections, for example, several of the socialist states, CA, NY, IL and others, delayed sending out ballots (in violation of various statues) to these overseas personnel so that it became impossible for them to get the completed ballots back by the deadline.

    Look for similar despicable actions by OBOZO’s d-cRAT socialist criminals to stop the military vote in the upcoming election.

  • Not Likely

    As usual, Dim Hoft is lying. The lawsuit seeks to restore the 3 days of early voting to all citizens, not remove it for the military.

    Allen West: ‘Barack Obama Is Undeserving Of The Title Commander-In-Chief’

    “As a retired Army officer I am appalled at the Obama administration’s actions to bring a lawsuit against the State of Ohio for the early voting privileges it extends to our Men and Women serving in uniform,” West writes. “To have the Commander in Chief make our US Servicemen and Women the target of a political attack to benefit his reelection actions is reprehensible. The voting privilege extended to these Warriors who represent the best among us should not be a part of the collective vision of this inept President who is more concerned about his reelection than sequestration. As a Combat Veteran, for this President to unleash his campaign cronies against our Military is unconscionable….how dare this President compare the service, sacrifice, and commitment of those who Guard our liberties not as special and seek to compare them to everyone else. Barack Obama is undeserving of the title Commander-in-Chief.”

    I want this man to be my POTUS.

  • Paul

    People think……and do some independent research. The lawsuit isn’t trying to restrict military voting rights, it’s trying to extend the rights to all Ohioans. It says, if you actually read the lawsuit, that the 3 extra days are a great idea, and in fact, should be extended to all Ohio citizens. Think!!! Why would they sue to restrict military voting rights? Yeah, that sounds like a GREAT way to get the millions of military family & friends to vote for Obama!

    If you really care about this issue and want to learn what it says, read the actual lawsuit – it’s out there for the world to see. But when you do, make sure to read the FIRST sentence, that says, “Plaintiffs bring this lawsuit to restore in-person early voting for all Ohioans during the three days prior to Election Day – a right exercised by an estimated 93,000 Ohioans in the last presidential election.”

    They got away with it in Maryland one year. The dead came back to life, torn down house showed up on the rolls, and one polling place was held open long after the other closed and turn their ballots in to be counted. The guy was trailing that night and won the election the next morning. Don’t tell me elections can’t be stolen by a political party. The guy turned out to be the second worse Govenor in Maryland next to the present one we have now.
