According to the Obama administration, our democracy is being threatened by racist Republicans. Hence, the Justice Department must prevent laws requiring a photo ID to vote from being enacted.
Holder's argument has no foothold in reality.
Kuhner points out that Holder’s real problem is that photo ID laws will impair ACORN’s ability to conduct fraud:
Mr. Holder evidently wants to scuttle ID laws because he knows which organization will be hurt most: ACORN. For years, community activist groups, such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, have engaged in massive electoral fraud – registering illegal aliens, offering bribes to numerous politically disinterested people in the inner cities as inducements to vote and pushing underage and multiple voting. Election reform, therefore, is a stake aimed at the heart of Democratic corruption and ACORN’s power. Clean up the voter rolls and Mr. Obama’s re-election is in serious jeopardy.
Free photo ID cards are made available to anyone who needs one in South Carolina as are absentee votes for those who would trouble getting to the polls. Additionally, in blocking the South Carolina law Holder runs afoul of stare decisis:
Moreover, the Supreme Court already has ruled on the issue – upholding state voter ID laws. In the 2008 Crawford v. Marion County Election Board decision, the high court held that an Indiana law mandating photo identification at the voting booth was indeed constitutional. If it is good enough for the Supreme Court and the overwhelming majority of the states, then it should be for Mr. Holder as well.
Holder claims that requiring a photo ID is tatamount to a poll tax but that is laughable:
“He has a particularly hard time explaining how the South Carolina requirement of government-issued photo identification amounts to a ‘poll tax’ when the state has also made provisions to provide that identification, free of charge. Hear that, Mr. Attorney General? The only thing the voter has to do is show up and get his or her photo taken. And if that’s too much darn trouble well, then, that person can do something else on election day.”
Why is too burdensome to show up and obtain a photo ID but not too burdensome to show up to vote?
The ducks are aligning in a row. Blocking the South Carolina law will allow ACORN and other left wing operations to run amuck with voter fraud. The problem is that election fraud is a Federal offense, and that’s where Holder becomes critical.
I fully expect no end to election chicanery on the part of the ACORN and the left, whether it involves “finding” lost votes as in Minnesota, printing out enough democrat ballots to guarantee a victory, forging signatures, or forging more signatures. I also expect that Holder would dismiss out of hand all claims beneficial to Obama and democrats and pursue only those in which the outcomes favored Republicans.
Ultimately the job of the Attorney General of the United States is protect the law from abuse but it is painfully clear that Eric Holder was appointed to protect abuse from the law.
Justice John Paul Stevens wrote:
”There is no question about legitimacy or importance of a state ‘s interest in counting only eligible voters.”
The integrity of the vote means nothing to Holder. Eric Holder would not know integrity if it bit him in the asss.
And that’s exactly why he was appointed.

Nevada Solar Co
The Solar thing just got a little more interesting.......REALLY!
The Tonopah Solar Company in Harry Reid's Nevada is getting a $737 million loan from Obama's DOE.
The project will produce a 110 megawatt power system and employ 45 permanent workers.
That's costing us just $16 million per job.
One of the investment partners in this endeavor is Pacific Corporate Group (PCG).
The PCG executive director is Ron Pelosi who is the brother to Nancy's husband.
Just move along folks... nuthin goin on here.
EVERY AMERICAN SHOULD KNOW HOW THEIR MONEY IS BEING STOLEN! SO, FORWARD THIS TO EVERYBODY

PRESIDENT OBAMA, "OUTSOURCING-IN-CHIEF" ....
Is Obama, not Romney, who is the “outsourcer-in-chief.”
“When Obama sent of our stimulus money $500 million to Fisker for an auto plant in Finland immediately. When you send the solar money and it goes to Mexico. When you send the turbine money and it goes to Denmark. And we can go on all day,” Sununu said. “There is $29 billion worth of purchases that came out of this administration, outsourced jobs to foreign countries.”

Our side tends to vote on values and policy without regard to race. The other side is the racist party that continues to divide us. Listen to these amazingly stupid voters in Harlem. They are, of course, voting for Obama because he is black.
