Oh neck-ain't-red,
Are you refering to the 2008 election in Philadelphia when Black Panthers with nightsticks intimidated Republican voters and the Obama administration did nothing about it?

Oh, Cannoneer!

There WAS NO Obama Administration in 2008.

But.....One supposes that doesn't matter, eh?

OK neck,

There was after the 2008 election and it was the Obama administration that chose to do nothing about the case.

But of course that dosen't make any difference to those of you who think that piece of crap in the white house who is disregarding all of the rules is not to blame for any of the problems that he and his administration has caused.

Silly pooch. You don't get it, do you?
Obama is the first, and only, president who has the gift of time travel.
And he's used it repeatedly for quite evil purposes.
  • He went back in time to cause and fail to prosecute the Philadelphia's black panthers voter intimidation.
  • He went back in time to cause the 9/11 disaster during Bush's administration.
  • He went back in time to cause both runaway debt and the financial collapse, during Bush administration
This man is phenomenally evil. How can we get you to wake up?

wise? one
You're just as dense as the rest of the Obama worshipers. His election was in 2008 and when the incident was brought to the attention of his administration after he was in office nothing was done about it.
I guess he could have had a couple of the intimidated voters join him and the panthers for a beer the way he setteled another problem.

This is a completely FACTUAL statement by cannoneer.

You guys are ridiculous, it gives me joy to call you AO (arrogant one) and clowndog (or corndog).

crux

That NBP/Justice thing is one more item we can add to the list of:
"...what Obama knows nothing about or had nothing to do with".

You know, Coondog was always more adept at Zoology than History, but, recollection suggests that the 2008 election was, as always, in early November.

Now, whereas more than two months lapsed between election day and inauguration day, it would appear that some other administration ignored, for two months, the fact that two negroes were standing near a voting booth.......holding sticks.

If it makes you feel better, Obama also didn't do anything about the thousands of Tea Party jerks who showed up at the polls in subsequent elections to intimidate minority voters.

Be happy that, while the Obama justice department doesn't arrest people for being black, they don't arrest people for being hypocritical butt wipes, either.

Hope this helps in curbing the paranoia, irrational hostility and historical confusion.

Coondog you are wrong again. Actually the Bush Administration did attempt to file civil charges against the members of the New Black Panther Party

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/07/us/07rights.html

In January 2009, less than two weeks before the Bush administration left office, the civil rights division invoked a rarely used section of the Voting Rights Act to file a civil lawsuit alleging voter intimidation by both men, the party chairman and the party.


Coondog states

Proof please!!!! Show us details that thousands of Tea Party members showed up at polls to intimidate minority voters otherwise its just more of the innuendo and insinuation that you continually spew.



Coondog, you and "Wise" One thought you had found a error with Cannoneers statement and proceeded to ridicule and demean him

But the egg is in your face. "Wise' One and your line of reasoning were incorrect. The fact that there was no Obama Administration in 2008 holds no bearing to Cannoneers statement. The election occurred in November 2008, the Bush administration attempted to bring civil charges on the New Black Panther Party during the remaining term. In 2009 the Obama Administration's Justice Department decided to drop the civil charges and only filed a civil complaint which they won by default, then the Obama Administration's Justice Department even rescinded the complaint against the Black Panther Party which they had won. Effectively doing nothing about the voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party at a Philadelphia precinct poll.

This is the BEST the left has to offer?

Cripes what a sad state of affairs. It's an uphill battle, K. To you and C, I see the good fight with these jokers as instructive to those who visit this little forum. We must remember that the challenge is for all of us to figure out the truth. AO and clowndog do not hold it. They know some of it. They won't admit to some of it.

Thanks K and cannoneer for your show of good will here.

Ever heard of True the Vote? You should have. It was spawned from the same group of "grass roots" billionaires that nurture and fund the tea party. Organized, active, systematic and well funded voter intimidation......as opposed to two guys passively standing around wearing dark glasses.

Proof?

...................True the Vote grew out of a Tea Party group in Texas, the King Street Patriots, with the assistance of Americans for Prosperity, a group founded by the Koch brothers that works to elect conservative Republicans. It has developed its own software to check voter registration lists against driver’s license and property records. Those kinds of database matches are notoriously unreliable because names and addresses are often slightly different in various databases, but the group uses this technique to challenge more voters.

In 2009 and 2010, for example, the group focused on the Houston Congressional district represented by Sheila Jackson Lee, a black Democrat. After poring over the records for five months, True the Vote came up with a list of 500 names it considered suspicious and challenged them with election authorities. Officials put these voters on “suspense,” requiring additional proof of address, but in most cases voters had simply changed addresses. That didn’t stop the group from sending dozens of white “poll watchers” to precincts in the district during the 2010 elections, deliberately creating friction with black voters.

On the day of the recall election of Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, the group used inaccurate lists to slow down student voting at Lawrence University in Appleton with intrusive identity checks. Three election “observers,” including one from True the Vote, were so disruptive that a clerk gave them two warnings, but the ploy was effective: many students gave up waiting in line and didn’t vote.

True the Vote, now active in 30 states, hopes to train hundreds of thousands of poll watchers to make the experience of voting like “driving and seeing the police following you,” as one of the group’s leaders put it. (Not surprisingly, the group is also active in the voter ID movement, with similar goals.) These activities “present a real danger to the fair administration of elections and to the fundamental freedom to vote,” as a recent report by Common Cause and Demos put it.

The Voting Rights Act of 1965 prohibits intimidation or interference in the act of voting, but the penalties are fairly light. Many states have tougher laws, but they won’t work unless law enforcement officials use them to crack down on the illegal activities — handed down from Jim Crow days — of True the Vote and similar groups.

A version of this editorial appears in print on September 22, 2012, on page A22 of the New York edition with the headline: Voter Harassment, Circa 2012.

True the vote actually helps ANYONE register, and even obtain the proper I.D. in their state.

(On a side not, in Texas, you can obtain FREE NO CHARGE proper I.D. so you can vote)

Move over Hillary.
We just found somebody better to be our first female President.
OK, OK, she's just 12 years old. But imagine her future!
She nails one part of the North Carolina voter suppression scheme perfectly:

She is a great speaker. Only 12? Wow...
Maybe she can grow up and be big like Hillary or even BIGGER!
Perhaps Goldman Sachs will pay her MORE THAN a mere half million dollars for two speeches.

Haters gonna hate. Cruz gets his health insurance through his wife's job with (GS). He and she might join the 93 million Americans who will lose their employer health insurance, you never know. Then you can jump for joy as they join 16 million privately insured who will get screwed by Obamacare...

"Single payer!!!" Jokers. It will solve nothing and do more harm than good.

Every one wants you to vote Neck. A "Democrat" Judge in Pa. has ruled. It will go on up the chain to the Supreme Court. I predict if the Pa. rule is simply that in order to cast a vote you must show a State issued ID, it will be upheld, just as the U.S. Supreme Court has held. It is legit to require an ID to cast a vote, Neck.

Cool Your Jets, friend. Let us keep watching Pennsylvania. I predict you will NOT be correct to celebrate just yet.
