Long voting lines might not
be as widespread as Obama says

Fox News, by Eric Shawn

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/14/2013 4:08:49 AM

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!

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.

More mothers have been staying home with their children since the recession ended, but a growing number of them say that’s primarily because they can’t find a job, according to a new study.

How are the nation´s universities responding so students might prepare for a promising career in this growing and intellectually challenging field? By largely ignoring it. Why?

CONCORD, N.H. — Republican Scott Brown said Monday he will kick off his next campaign for U.S. Senate in Portsmouth, the New Hampshire city he says played a special role in his childhood. The former Massachusetts senator will formally announce his bid for the seat held by Democrat Jeanne Shaheen at the Portsmouth Harborside Hotel on Thursday night. “I remember our house on Islington Street, strolling through Strawbery Banke with my grandfather, and catching a show at Prescott Park. Now, Portsmouth is going to be the start of the next chapter in my life,” he told supporters in an email.

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen sure talks a lot about “outside” money. She raises campaign funds by claiming to protect the state from outside “special interests” who might help Scott Brown. Those poor donors probably have no idea how much money Shaheen raises from out-of-state special interests. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks campaign donations, Shaheen has raised 75 percent of her 2014 campaign cash from out of state. For her career, Shaheen’s top 10 metropolitan areas for campaign donations are, in order: Boston; New York City; Washington, D.C.; Los Angeles; Lowell, Mass; San Francisco; Manchester; Chicago; Portsmouth; Philadelphia.

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job. (snip) Shierholz estimates that there are currently more than 5 million missing workers who are not included in the unemployment rate because they are neither working nor looking for work, but who might be if the job market

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy.

Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws.

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic.

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. — With eyes increasingly on him, Jeb Bush signaled on Sunday the kind of campaign he would mount if he runs for president, one arguing against ideological purity tests while challenging party orthodoxy on issues like immigration and education.
