Without reading the article, let me guess-- he's doing something entirely harmless, legal, and beneficial to society as a whole and the usual retarded suspects are losing their shiat because they hate him.

"The Commission shall identify best practices and otherwise make recommendations to promote the efficient administration of elections in order to ensure that all eligible voters have the opportunity to cast their ballots without undue delay, and to improve the experience of voters facing other obstacles in casting their ballots, such as members of the military, overseas voters, voters with disabilities, and voters with limited English proficiency."

How dare the President create an advisory board that tries to make it easier for people to vote

The Stealth Hippopotamus: It would have been nice, since they will be there anyway, to find a way to keep people who shouldn't be voting from voting.



It's as if you somehow think that's a common occurrence.

Interesting that you equate it to all of the last few years' voter suppression efforts.

I'd like to see more than a commission, but it's a start. Our voting process is totally f*cked.

Silly Jesus: Glad that you think and informed and intelligent electorate is anti-American. You are what's wrong with this country.


Thinking that a small group of people can come up with a 'test' that decides what it means for someone to qualify as 'informed and intelligent' is what is anti-American. You are, quite clearly, the problem. People can discuss issues at the water cooler or during lunch and become informed. I'm trying to remember the last time the line of succession of the presidency was discussed in such an environment. Knowing the structure of our government has literally ZERO to do with someone being part of an informed electorate. WTF does knowing three branches of government or how a bill becomes a law or how vetos work have a goddamn thing to do with someone who think marriage equality is a pretty important thing to support or who think that we spend too much on our military? You are a train wreck of an American. May God have mercy on your soul.

Silly Jesus: theknuckler_33: Silly Jesus: autopsybeverage: theknuckler_33: Silly Jesus: whidbey: Oh look, 5 years later and subby's still hurt.

Black man in the White House, everybody! Better run!

Race card nonsense didn't take long.  Good job.

Because advocating a form of poll tax/eligibility test has no basis in race at all.

Especially in any sort of historical context.

Because we should always live in the past.

I believe that all races have had access to books for quite awhile now.

says the guy who wants to implement a policy from the past. *rolls eyes*

It has nothing to do with the past.  You keep bringing that in to it.  In the past it was racially motivated and it worked because we didn't give blacks access to schools or books.  That's not the case anymore, so I don't see how you're drawing a parallel.  You're bringing in an irrelevant issue.


If you can't recognize that a policy with racist roots is still inherently discriminatory... regardless of what it is that is being discriminated against... then you are beyond help. A lunatic can know American history and vote, but a person well versed in the issues of today that may not know the 'nuts and bolts' of our system of government can't?  Why is that a good idea? Someone who can pass the citizen test who think the government is run by lizard people can vote, but a hard working single mom who's a bit too busy trying to raise her children and get by to study civics can't?

It's good to know that you are advocating a distinctly anti-American policy. Congratulations.

Not unless you think that one race is smarter than another.  I'm advocating a standard of intellect / knowledge.  You aren't suggesting that one race is smarter than the other, are you?

I'm suggesting that such a thing has inherently racist roots. We got rid of them because they are discriminatory. They still are. If they were such a bad idea that they needed to be farking outlawed, they are still that bad an idea. Someone, such as yourself, suggesting that such a 'test' would be a good idea is the kind of thinking that leads us back to the 'good ol days'. We don't need that kind of thinking in America. Go fark yourself.

So you're saying that blacks would perform more poorly on a test of basic knowledge than whites.  That's kinda racist of you.  Congrats!


Thanks for putting non-existent words in my mouth. Nothing in what I wrote says anything close to what you said. It is irrelevant what the results of such a test would be, the idea of such a test has racist roots and anyone who can't recognize or acknowledge that and admit that such a thing is a really terrible idea is either incredibly stupid or... lacking a better explanation, racist. Congrats on being one of those two things.

Silly Jesus: Actually, there are a lot of people who see the value in an informed and intelligent electorate would like to selectively ignore the constitution and take a huge shiat on voter rights.

Cletus C.: The racism charge is hysterical context, as it turns out.


Nope. Seeing as how the litany of "outrage" being spewed towards Obama doesn't add up to much, the only rational explanation is that his so-called "critics" don't care for his skin color, and make stupid excuses.

Sorry if that makes you mad or something.

Step 1: Person submits link to story about president forming a commission. Adds obvious troll headline. So obvious only a fool would take it seriously, In fact, it probably came from an Obama supporter mocking the right's predictable outrage.

Step 2: Fools take it seriously. Attack submitter.

This place can be so humorless.

But that would be efficient and we all know the government doesn't do efficient.


they get arrested, you know if you commit a crime and get caught, you get arrested.

but you can't proactively take away a right without due process.

iv) the efficient management of voter rolls and poll books;
viii) management of issuing and processing provisional ballots in the polling place on Election Day;
(ix) the issues presented by the administration of absentee ballot programs;

Seems like these provisions might help.

Really, Butthurtmitter? Establishing a non-salaried advisory commission within the authority of the Federal Advisory Committee Act is somehow scary, a violation of the constitution, and a violation of seperation of powers? I guess his trip to Florida to play golf with Tiger constituted high crimes and misdemeanors. We'll find a way to impeach this uppity blah person somehow.
