The Smell of Politics Brings Out the Worst in Some People

Just ask yourself which political party vehemently opposes the fair-mindedness of Voter-ID and why?

The smell of partisan politics is in the air; must be getting close to election time again, if you can call 18 months as being ‘close’.

Democrats are, as usual, up to their old tricks again; rolling out the ancient and war-weary clichés and charges that Republicans are racists and geared up to prevent the “poor blacks” from getting to the polls to exercise their constitutional right to vote. Only in these modern days, they now include the “depressed Hispanics” as well.

My God, what phonies they are. Election cycle after election cycle they trot out all the tired and disbelievable small-minded people like Donna Brazile former DNC Chairman, one of the most bigoted racists ever to lie with a straight face. When it comes to politics the truth is such a stranger to this woman that she wouldn’t recognize it if it came directly from Barack Obama. Come to think of it, that’s not a good citation as I wouldn’t believe it either coming from him. But you get my point. J

Some people have dubbed Brazile as the female ‘Ragin’ Cajun’ in deference to James Carville the original at spreading the “Big Lie” with dripping venom, so adept that she rose all the way to the top of the Democratic National Committee, but only as an ‘Interim’ Chairman. But these days she appears relatively docile particularly when compared to the ‘beast’ that copped the title of Chair of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Wasserman Schultz is an elected Representative to the U. S. House of Representatives from Florida’s 20th District nominated to the DNC Chair by President Obama and assumed that position in May of this year. She has not been impressive in the early moments in her lofty position as DNC Chair.

In fact, as Ricky Kreitner of Business Insider – Politix “Democrats Are Already Fretting About Gaffes By Party Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz” column on June 10, 2011 states “Democrats are privately fretting after a rocky start by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz as chair of the Democratic National Committee.

“She has been called out repeatedly by non-partisan fact-checkers for stretching the truth on a number of points, Politico reports: ‘The congresswoman’s latest blunder came Sunday, when she said on television that Republicans ‘want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws and literally — and very transparently — block access to the polls to voters who are more likely to vote for Democratic candidates than Republican candidates.’

Kreitner explains it “The equating of state legislatures’ efforts to require voters to show identification with laws that required separate schools and water fountains raised hackles, particularly in racially sensitive Democratic circles, prompting a quasi-retraction from Wasserman Schultz. In a statement, she said, ‘Jim Crow was the wrong analogy to use. But I don’t regret calling attention to the efforts” of GOP legislators “to restrict access to the ballot box.'”

I wonder what she would say about the Black Panthers at the polls in Philadelphia in the 2010 elections. Now that’s what I would call REAL “restricting access to the ballot box.”

As Quin Hilyer of Center for Individual Freedom stated in his June 09, 2011 column DNC Race-baiting Camouflages Vote Fraud “Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Florida Democrat, has ripped the scab from a deep wound in American politics. The Left has spent years slinging at conservatives the calumny that we want to block access to the polls by minority groups. The charge is a vile slander. Yet in the space of just two weeks, DNC chiefs have twice gone public with the allegation – race-baiting for all they are worth – in a raw attempt to foment racial tension. Beneath the surface, it’s also an attempt to provide a smokescreen for fraudulent voting.”

Hilyer reported that “She was parroting former DNC Chair Donna Brazile, who on May 17 wrote in USA Today that “from coast to coast, the GOP is engaged in what appears to be a coordinated, expensive effort to block voters from the polls. The motivation is political — a cynical effort to restrict voting by traditionally Democratic-leaning Americans. In more than 30 states, GOP legislators are on the move…. What the GOP is attempting to do is change the rules of the game, leaving only their players on the field.”

What both Brazile and Wasserman Schultz are referring to are the efforts of the Republican Party to require voter-ID at the polls in order to prevent the prevalent illegal voting that has taken place in recent elections fostered mainly by the Democrats – (think ACORN.)

Democrats are frightened and energized by the efforts of the Republicans to get voter-ID as a threat to their “vote early and often” campaign so effusively used by ACORN and other voter fraud groups. Frightened that they’ll lose all those extra votes they will not be getting and energized to keep that sort of illicit operation in action at polls all across the country.

Just ask yourself which political party vehemently opposes the fair-mindedness of Voter-ID and why?
