Obama promising to protect minority voting rights

Published: Mon, July 29, 2013 @ 5:09 p.m.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is promising not to let one election go by without protecting minority voting rights.

The president met privately today with more than a dozen civil rights leaders to talk about strengthening the Voting Rights Act. Last month the Supreme Court struck down the most-powerful provision of the 48-year-old law.

The participants told reporters afterward that they are pleased with the administration's response so far. Attorney General Eric Holder, who was also at the White House meeting, announced support last week for a lawsuit asking for advance court approval for voting changes in Texas.

Participants said the president and Holder promised more action to protect the right to vote. The attendees stressed than any legislative response to the Supreme Court ruling must have broad bipartisan support.

Eric Holder is one of the biggest rascists in this country.

"The attendees stressed than any legislative response to the Supreme Court ruling must have broad bipartisan support."

Unless the Republicans are expected to just "roll over and play dead", that's not likely to happen.

Maybe the Prez might check the Constitution: Amendment XIV-Citizenship rights not to be abridged; Amendment XV-RACE NO BAR TO VOTING; and Amendment XIX-Giving nationwide suffrage to women.

If Obama wants to protect minority voting rights, the above listed Amendments already do.

Anything to stir up the people.

Suggest removal:
