Remember the charismatic, young African-American senator from Illinois who electrified crowds with his rhetoric, who called for a new kind of politics that would heal the United States? Unfortunately, the audacity of hope quickly devolved into the audacity of bitter partisanship and division following his historic victory. Barack Hussein Obama, the 44th president of the United States, spoke at an event sponsored by The Economic Club of Chicago on Friday where he sharply condemned the new voting reform laws enacted recently in Georgia and Florida and currently under consideration in the state of Texas and elsewhere. Republicans are “rigging the game,” Obama declared. “That’s the kind of dangerous behavior that we’re going to have to push back on.” Memo to Obama: What was “not good for our soul” was watching the chaos that ensued last November after Democrats changed the rules leading up to the presidential election. Unprecedented numbers of absentee ballots overwhelmed the system, resulting in major chain of custody issues in all of the swing states, providing a gaping opportunity for both voter and electoral fraud.
