Latest Freeper essay: FUN FACT: Obama Lost in Every State with a Voter Photo-ID Law

The butt-hurt continues!

Posted on Thu Nov 08 2012 12:07:27 GMT-0500 (Eastern Standard Time) by Reaganite Republican

Was the election stolen? Remember all those lawsuits by Democrats demanding that any voter identification laws be repealed? Well, now we know why they filed them. They needed to steal the vote in certain key states so that Obama could be reelected.

Curiously, Obama lost in every state that requires a photo ID to be produced before voting. A list of closely contested state elections with no voter ID, which narrowly went to Obama include: Minnesota (10), Iowa (6), Wisconsin (10), Nevada (6), Colorado (9), New Mexico (5) and Pennsylvania (20).

This amounts to a total of 66 electoral votes. When added to Romney’s total of 205 electoral votes, that would give Romney 271 electoral votes, enough votes to win even without Ohio or Florida Romney also likely had the states of Florida and Ohio stolen from him, which don’t require photo IDs.

Ohio requires a non-photo ID. Would a library card do? Florida “requests” a photo ID, but doesn’t require it. So what happens if they request a photo ID and the illegal alien Haitian doesn’t have one? Do they just count the vote anyway?

Chicken, egg. Egg, chicken.

The most frightening thing about this is that unless you are willing to listen to the entire arguement regarding voter supression vs. voter fraud, it really does look like the Dems fought voter registration iniatives in order to steal the election through fraud.

And, there is no really way to refute this claim.

So, here we go again, another four years of whining and crying about how he's not really the president.

Bunch of cry babies.

And, as is typically the case with Freepers, their "FUN FACT" is not true. Look at the map of states with Voter ID laws. Obama won 2 (Michigan and Florida) with photo ID requirements. Ohio, Virginia, Washington, and Colorado do not require photo IDs.

And never mind the fact that Obama did not just "narrowly" win the states they identify--he won them solidly.

Unless and until these types come forward with actual EVIDENCE of voter fraud in this election to justify their blatant attempts at voter suppression, their claims will continue to ring hollow.

Uh, hello, he won all those states the last time around, in 2008. Duh!

Many of those states are solid blue states that always vote Dem in presidential elections. I mean...PA? Minnesota? Romney was never going to win there.

He won those states BECAUSE of the voter ID law. Threaten to take away a person's right to vote and watch them go vote.
