The Democrats are trying to stick it to Military voters..

They did the same crap in Florida in 2000.  People were so concerned about dangling chads that they forgot that the democrats tried to disqualify a bunch of military votes that came from overseas.  I remember that and thought of the hypocrisy of that.  They were so concerned about the voter intend in 4 heavily democratic districts in the Miami area and at the same time they tried to strike the Military vote.   This is how Obama and Axelrod roll, they try to disqualify as many of the votes that are for the opponents and also the opposing candidate.  This worked well for him when he ran for state house, then state senate, he got lawyers involved and they either dug up crap on their opponents or tried to find a technicality to get them off the ballot.  On the other hand, the democrats have the ability to raise the dead.....and they vote democrats.....Saints be praised..it is a modern miracle!!

"The administration showed its true appreciation for military service when, on July 17, the Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party filed suit in that swing state to strike down part of the state's law governing voting by members of the military that gives them extra time to cast their ballots. ... While Democratic groups say the military exemption is 'arbitrary' with 'no discernible rational basis,' military groups say federal and state law in fact recognizes the need to give military personnel extra time to vote. Considering that Ohio voters can cast early ballots up to 35 days before an election, the military extension imposes no undue hardship on other voters. The National Defense Committee, a veterans organization, notes that 'for each of the last three years, the Department of Defense's Federal Voting Assistance Program has reported to the President and the Congress that the number one reason for military voter disenfranchisement is inadequate time to successfully vote.' An administration that constantly talks about voter disenfranchisement appears unconcerned that a study by the nonpartisan Military Voters Protection Project found that in 2008 less than 20% of 2.5 million military voters successfully voted by absentee ballot. In 2010, participation shrank to a scandalous 5%. ... Supporters of the suit claim the Democrats aren't really trying to suppress the military vote, just give others the same access to polls that would be open anyway. ... The problem is the Obama administration has shown a disregard for military voters who, studies show, tend to vote Republican. ... Of course, this reluctance to promote and support military voting -- while dead voters are allowed to remain on the rolls and cast ballots, and while the right of felons to vote is championed -- has nothing to do with the fact that John McCain won 54% of the military vote in 2008 or that a May 2012 Gallup poll showed Mitt Romney pulling 58% to President Obama's paltry 34%." --
