"Right to vote is threatened"

Quote:The first couple was in New York Friday for Al Sharpton's National Action Network conference.

Obama spoke at the conference earlier, saying the right to vote in the U.S. is under bigger threat than at any time since the Voting Rights Act passed nearly five decades ago.

"The stark simple truth is this: The right to vote is threatened today," Obama said.

The election-year warning comes as Obama seeks to mobilize Democratic voters to fight back against state voting requirements and early balloting restrictions that many in his party fear will curb turnout in November.

The president vowed that he would not let the attacks on voting rights go unchallenged, but offered no new announcements of specific actions his administration planned to take.

The president pinned efforts to curb access to the ballot box directly on the GOP, declaring that the effort "has not been led by both parties. It's been led by the Republican Party."

For the remainder of the year, no political issue stands out more prominently for Democrats than their ability to motivate voters to turn out at the polls in November. Control of the Senate, now in the hands of Democrats, is at stake, as is Obama's already limited ability to push his agenda through Congress.

But traditionally weak midterm turnout by Democrats coupled with efforts in some states to limit early voting and to enact voter identification requirements have prompted the president and his party to raise alarms and step up their get-out-the-vote efforts.

Republicans have long argued that identification requirements and other voting controls are reasonable measures designed to safeguard the balloting process, not to suppress voter turnout. Democrats say photo identification requirements especially affect minority or low-income voters who may not drive and thus wouldn't have an official government ID.

There is so much messed up with this article.....

Well, he is right. Ninja

The right to vote is being threatened, and probably worse than any other time since the act he mentioned was passed.

Now, people who have no legal right to vote are allowed to vote, and measures to prevent the illegal voting are criticized by the PotUS. As it stands now, voting is a sham to legitimatize the current regime dictatorship presidency.

I agree with the PotUS, but for very, very different reasons.

I don't agree but we are probably both biased.

Herman Cain's family was being threatened such that he needed secret service protection.....not to mention publicly smearing his reputation. Thats worse than being ignored.
