I am thoroughly disgusted by our sorry excuse for a president. I'm honestly wondering how much worse it can get. Black Panthers stood outside a polling place in Philadelphia on election day, standing in front of the door with one of them brandishing a nightstick at people going to vote. All of this was caught ON VIDEO. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neGbKHyGuHU&feature=player_embedded http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94b78rnWMP4&feature=channel_page http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wwAsjErHeU&feature=related The criminals involved were charged and convicted by the Obama administration. However, Obama decided to dismiss the freaking charges! These thugs were so confident in Obama's willingness to support their actions that they didn't even bother to appear in court. They let themselves get convicted, offering know defense and filing no appeals, as though they were absolutely positive that Obama would dismiss the case. Oh, did I mention that one of them was a credentialed poll watcher for Barack Obama and the Democratic Party when the violations occurred? http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/may/29/protecting-black-panthers/ Anyone want to wager a guess as to what would have happened if a couple clansmen had been standing in front of that door with one of them brandishing a weapon? Some of you may be wondering why you hadn't heard about this story on election day. The answer is simple. The mainstream media refused to cover it because these thugs were Obama supporters. They have also refused to cover Obama's dismissal of the charges after the case ended. It's a sad day in our nation's history when our own president supports voter intimidation by a racist group. "A poll watcher who provided an affidavit to prosecutors in the case noted that Bartle Bull, who worked as a civil rights lawyer in the south in the 1960’s and is a former campaign manager for Robert Kennedy, said it was the most blatant form of voter intimidation he had ever seen. In his affidavit, obtained by FOX News, Bull wrote “I watched the two uniformed men confront voters and attempt to intimidate voters. They were positioned in a location that forced every voter to pass in close proximity to them. The weapon was openly displayed and brandished in plain sight of voters.” He also said they tried to “interfere with the work of other poll observers … whom the uniformed men apparently believed did not share their preferences politically,” noting that one of the panthers turned toward the white poll observers and said “you are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker.” http://foxforum.blogs.foxnews.com/2009/05/29/deseno_voter_new_black_panthers/ Are there any Obama supporters who can possibly defend his support of voter intimidation in direct opposition to the Voting Rights Act? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neGbKHyGuHU&feature=player_embedded http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94b78rnWMP4&feature=channel_page http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wwAsjErHeU&feature=related http://www.foxnews.com/politics/elections/2009/05/29/charges-black-panthers-dropped-obama/ http://foxforum.blogs.foxnews.com/2009/05/29/deseno_voter_new_black_panthers/ http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/may/29/protecting-black-panthers/

I am beginning to think that it is too late for this country. No matter what we do, the 0 will keep doing whatever he wants to as will Congress. Nothing has changed even though folks have started to wake up and complain. Never in history have so many bills gone from committee to the floor to the signature stage so fast and furious before. Never has the Constitution been trampled the way it is being trampled before. Even the Supreme Court has put the Constitution down recently. They all just voted to allow a person to be questioned without representation. That was one of the things that has always set the USA apart from the rest of the world. The previous administration basically made it possible for the cops to enter and search your residence without a warrant if they could dream up a good enough reason. I think we lost the war before we were allowed to wage the first battle, because we did not know we were at war. Shalom~Adoniah

You got to admit it is a darn good strategy to not let an enemy know you are war with them. We have to explain this to people.

The American people are so Apathetic, I do not see how you will ever light a fire under them and get enough of them motivated. Even if you do, how will you ever stop this insanity? No one in Congress cares what the PEOPLE want! Shalom

Well the patriot act screwed some of our basic protections, and now Obama is expanding that more than anyone could have imagined. I just can't believe the apathy of people who just don't care that armed thugs were intimidating voters and our own president allowed it. One of the thugs was an EMPLOYEE. Normally this kind of crap would be brought to light by the media, but unless you watch Fox News you'll never hear about it because the rest of the media is in Obama's pocket.

I followed your link to this post and read the article and responses of those who commented. I can't say that I was forced to vote for President Obama and while I didn't view the video's etc. My sense or take on this issue is that it is isolated and yet I would have to say it no way compares to the violations of the Republican administration and the abuse provoked around the world. Our elite have a lot of problems and the poor in America are suffering as are all of the poor all around the world. There is a sinking ship and the elite drown right along with the poor equally, do you know what a monkey trap is?

Voter intimidation - Obama's thugs stand in front of a polling place in Philadelphia brandishing nightsticks.
This has absolutely nothing to do with the Bush administration. Why can't you stick to the topic at hand? We are talking about VOTER INTIMIDATION. Are you saying that there is nobody is going to be intimidated by a black panther, in uniform, standing in front of the door to a polling location brandishing a nightstick? Democrats were screaming voter intimidation when a police car was parked near a polling location but black panthers brandishing weapons is just fine I guess.
