    Disgusting, but not surprising. This DoJ is more concerned about enforcing the liberal agenda than the law.

    Military Votes Slipping Through Cracks, Actually Being Counted

    It's generally known that active military personel, isolated as they are from current events and the educational assistance of the mainstream media, are just too ignorant to be trusted with a decision as important as choosing our President - a fact proven by their tendency to overwhelmingly vote Republican. Bush's theft of the elections in both 2000 and 2004, for example, was blamed on the military vote.

    Regretfully, we haven't learned from the mistakes of the past. A few military votes slipped through the cracks and were accidentally counted in 08' as well...but John McSame actually wants to count more. Absentee ballots mailed out to troops serving overseas yesterday might not make it back by today's deadline, and McSame is suing to have the deadline extended.

    It's funny how these right-wingers wouldn't bend the rules to ensure the votes of our own citizens were counted in Florida, but they have no problems doing so to accommodate people who don't even live here.

    That article was pitiful and an insult to any man, or woman, who's ever served.

    I just have to say, all military members who wish to vote should have the right to do so. I just find it incredibly ironic that a Republican is complaining about States Rights in this case.

    I don't see why.

    Democrats historically have been for states rights against the Federalists Republicans ever since before the Civil War.

    Only recently with an out of control White House has the GOP needed to support the rights of states over a negligent and oppressive federal government.

    I believe Modbert is referring to the fact that some states, (all blue, btw), are asking for waivers...

    Well I just find it ironic considering the numerous complaints, especially on USMB about being able to opt out of "Obamacare".

    I could take a great deal of what he said, replace MOVE with the Health Care Bill and it sounds like the exact same thing.

    Of course, if Mud thinks the current government is oppressive, then he is a moron. Especially since Obama has been no real different then Dubya, Clinton, Sr Bush, and going back further.

    So states should be able to require voter ID? Or is it that the conservatives are just supposed to cave on every issue because of consistency, regardless of right or wrong?

    Of course he's gonna want to defend Blue States' rights to block the military vote.
