LIVE and on television, President Obama cast his ballot in Chicago last month. But before he received his ballot, he had to present a photo ID.
In the bluest of blue states, the most famous person in the United States had to prove who he was to election officials before he could cast his vote.
Republicans have pushed for photo IDs for voters, only to be charged with trying to suppress votes.
Somehow people required to show photo IDs to board airplanes, rent cars, buy guns, claim contest winnings or perform numerous other daily activities must not be asked to present photo IDs to vote?
If it is good enough for the president, it is good enough for the rest of us. West Virginia should require voters to present a photo ID.
IT would not be an election without Democrats trying to scare senior citizens. This year's shameless deception is that Republicans want to take Medicare away from today's senior citizens.
This is not true. Seniors should not fall for it.
Republican efforts to save Medicare would change nothing for today's retirees or anyone over 55.
The proposed change to a voucher system that would give tomorrow's seniors bargaining power would not affect current retirees.
Misleading seniors to get their votes reveals an unseemly low opinion of seniors' intelligence.
