#1 The people responsible should really be shot for this.
Complete fraud and intimidation and makes the whole democratic process null and void.

#2 That's what the Donks passed Posse Commitatus for. Remove the federal troops from the Southern polling stations to make sure only the 'right' folks voted. Their modus operandi haven't changed much in over a hundred years.

#3 See, we DID need those UN poll watchers.

#4 No, those UN Observers were for the 'alleged' Republican suppression of votes, not the actual Donk suppression of votes. That's why they're not deployed in machine owned and operated every state. One set of rules for me, a different set of rules for thee.

#7 Had read this would be happening -- reported by Fox:
A group of retired Navy SEALs and other former special ops service members vowed to counter any attempt to intimidate voters by sending teams to sites in Philadelphia, Cleveland, Miami and Las Vegas. Former Navy Capt.
Benjamin Brink told Philadelphia radio station IQ 106.9 FM more than a hundred former SEALs, Army Rangers, Delta Force operatives and Green Berets volunteered for the job. But he said his men will not provoke confrontation, but rather "watch for intimidation, videotape it, if possible, and report it to the proper authorities.┬"

Arm and deploy them!

#11 Proper authorities? It's been reported on local TV and radio, it's all over the internet. If the proper authorities haven't taken action yet, when will they? Do we have to wait until the election's over and Obama has four more years? Because after that you know from experience that Holder won't do jack squat about it.

#12 You Americans ever before had presidential election where loss for the incumbent means a lot of the Dept. Justice top brass are going to jail?

#13 The John Mitchell wing of the Bureau of Prisons might need some sprucing up.

#14 I have learned that one of those organizations who "help" people to vote has been caught shredding thousands of Republican votes in Philadlphia. That is another thing who has to go: no helpers. Make the things right so there are no lines soeven if your old and have bad health you have no excuse (in Europe we have no lines so youmust be able to do it). In the interim put the fraudsters in jail, and throw the key into the Mariana Trench.

#15 How about we just throw them into the Mariana Trench instead? After all, they're biodegradable!

#16 caught shredding thousands of Republican votes in Philadlphia
JFM - do you have a source for that statement?
Posted by Glenmore 2012-11-06 16:12||
#17 I think it was voter registration cards that were shredded. I saw something about it but can't remember where. Just went looking for it again and couldn't find it. But it does indeed sound like there is criminal activity in Philadelphia.

#18 When has there not been criminal activity in Filth-a-delphia?

#19 Breitbart "citizen journalists" reported the shredding of GOP voter registrations forms.
