Long voting lines might not
be as widespread as Obama says

Complaints about long lines marred the November election for some. So at the State of the Union, President Obama announced a new bipartisan commission to try and make voting easier. He cited the case of a Florida voter, 102-year-old Desiline Victor, whom Obama said waited in line for hours. "They can´t wait for five or six or seven hours just to cast their ballot," the president declared. "We are betraying our ideals." But while Florida was considered the worst state for waiting times, with one study estimating that 200,000 people gave up because of the wait, another study questions

Early voting has become a nuance procedure for the left to steal more elections.I seriously doubt that people who work at the polls in dem controlled areas have no clue on who´s already voted and couldn´t care less about them being in line again.Is Obama assuming that all the 200,000 voters who gave up were going to vote for him?
How did republicans make sweeping gains in Fl. in 2010 suddenly get buried in this past election?

How many of these Florida dolt voters voted for Pat Buchanon thinking it was AlGore?

I am a Florida voter and it took me about 5 minutes in the voting booth, which included voting for/against the 11 amendments. That´s because I had studied the issues and had a marked up ballot with me so I didn´t hold up the line. And Zippy loves to paint negatives with a broad brush.

I have the freedom to be able to vote at off hours and never encounter long lines. But on those few occasions when I have voted during the busiest times, I have never had to wait more than twenty minutes to get to the check in table. O, as usual, is lying.

I guess when you´re a Democrat voting six or seven times, you probably have a six hour wait.

You know, go to polling place #1, vote (about 20 minutes). Get in your car, drive to the next precinct (maybe 30 minutes), find a parking space, pull out that next voter registration card or work on your story why you should vote here (another 10 minutes), walk in and vote (probably a little less than before because you just click the Democrat straight party ticket), and repeat.

Once you´ve done this about 7 times, it´s probably about 6 hours later.

No early voting. Any requests for absentee ballots MUST have valid reasons, enumerated in the law and all absentee ballots returned MUST be notarized, with the exception of military ballots.

I personally know of too many cases where absentee ballots are sent to long term care facilities (nursing homes), taken and filled out by unionized staff members under the SEIU umbrella, and returned. The only time the voter saw the ballot was to sign it, if he/she could.

This story is as bogus as the phony telling it. How far and wide did he have to search to find this poor old woman to help him perpetuate this lie?

I planned for a long wait when I went to vote so took a book with me. The lines were very long, but within minutes a poll worker made an announcement that any disabled or over age 70 people could come to the front and get in a different much shorter line. I was out of there in minutes and would bet this was the case almost everywhere.

There were evidently long lines in FL because there were 11 amendments on the ballot. And evidently most people had not read them previously so they were having to read each one, try to figure out what it was about and then mark the ballot. So it´s not all the fault of the state. Much information was presented in the newspapers prior to the election so if they had been paying attention, there wouldn´t have needed to be long lines. Floriduh voters come thru again!

The most important line is to "modernize our voter registration system." I don´t think that´s what Obama has in mind.

I rather doubt that this lady even remembers voting, let alone a long wait. Personally, I think anyone who would wait "six or seven" hours to vote must have rocks in their head. Go early or during the work day (I assume this lady didn´t have a job). There are always times when the polls are less crowded.

At rush hours my polls have long lines, I have no idea how long the wait is, but I´m sure it´s at least 30 minutes at worst.

An hour later it´s basically walk in and vote.

I´ve never waited more than about five minutes

This is a democrat scam to get early voting accepted everywhere. Instant registration and then get them on an SEIU bus that will ferry these people back and forth to the polls for days on end. I´ve stated before that Alinsky taught that because our forefathers gave everyone (even the insane, illiterate and deranged) the right to vote they needed to harvest the apathetic and apolitical among them. The ones who never voted in the past were enticed to vote by community organizers. That is why Obama is pushing it.

Early voting should be outlawed. I think that´s where a lot of voter fraud is being made. Why are there long lines??? Get more voting booths, more front line people that do the paperwork, etc. There should not be a big problem with that. Get some of the city officials to man the desks. The only reason there´s long lines is because there´s not enough ´´stuff´´ to accommodate the crowds. It´s not that difficult to figure out, people. But NO EARLY VOTING - AND I.D. CHECK FOR EVERYONE!!!! We need honest voting not what we had in the last fraudulent election.

There is no reason for anyone to wait more than a half hour at the most congested times. At our precinct we had some elderly folks sitting down while the person that was behind them saved their place. Some kind hearted people even allowed them in line before their turn. It isn´t that big of a deal as most people are very accommodating to these folks. Voting machines can even be taken out to the parking lot for voters who cannot get in and out of the car easily. As usual Barack Hussein Obama is making up stuff. OK, he´s a liar.

I have friends who worked the polls in Cincinnati. A well dressed black man arrived at an inner city voting area. He had no ID but wanted to vote under a name like Althea or some woman´s name. His only ID was an electric bill with Althea´s name on it. He was not allowed to be questioned whether or not that was his name. I realized all kinds of people have all kinds of names but this is only one example of something rather odd that went on that day.

What Florida and other states with 5-10 page ballots need to do is adjust their elections; National one year, State the next. In VA that seems to keep the ballots short. We also hold our local elections in June where I live, I am not sure it is statewide. Voila, you have short lines which move quickly.

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S.

The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit.

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
