In one of the toughest election seasons in American history, President Obama has perhaps just played the dirtiest card yet. The Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee have now essentially declared that allowing extra time for military absentee voting “unfair,” even going so far as to utter the big “U” word: “unconstitutional.”
The absentee voting process in the state of Ohio mandates that voters turn in their absentee ballots by the Friday preceding the Tuesday election. Ohio’s current policy allows military and overseas citizens until Monday to get their ballots recorded, leaving them a three-day leeway period.
But according to President Obama, those three days allow an unfair advantage over the rest of the Ohio voting population. Now that he has the economy under control (intended sarcasm) he has time to file a suit against Ohio for its irrational, unjustifiable, and arbitrary voting policy.
Just to clarify: Asking for ID before someone can vote is horribly racist. Making it harder for members of the U.S. military to vote is a-ok.
