First Lady Requires Photo ID for Her Book Signings; Voter ID Law-hating Media Fail to Note Obama Hypocrisy

By John Bates

The Obama administration has done its best to oppose states from instituting new, stricter voter ID laws, complaining that many minority voters lack photo identification. But those same folks it wants voting in November are apparently not welcome anywhere near the First Lady’s book signings

As stated on the blog Obama Foodorama:

On Friday, June 8th, those wishing to attend the event must purchase a copy of the First Lady’s book at the location and leave it at the store, according to the employee.

At the same time, customers must also submit their social security number and show an official photo ID (driver’s license, passport) to a Secret Service agent, and they will be issued a wristband to the First Lady’s event on June 12

Note that they also have to submit their Social Security number.

President Obama and Attorney General Holder have spoken actively against requiring ID to be presented at polling places. They’ve maintained this stance despite the fact that a recent Fox News poll reveals a full 70 percent of Americans believe voter ID laws are necessary to stop voter fraud

If it weren’t for double standards, most Democrats would have no standards at all.

For the record, Foodorama appears to a staunchly pro-Michelle Obama blog. It describes itself as:

The public portion of the digital archive of record about Obama Administration food and nutrition initiatives with reporting and photographs from the White House by founding editor Eddie Gehman Kohan.

Thank goodness Ms. Kohan isn’t wasting her life.




Hypocrisy Alert! Democrats say Requiring Photo ID is Voter Suppression; yet For Massachusetts Democrats….No Entry to Convention Without Photo ID. Unions Also Require Photo ID to Vote.



“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

  1. Reblogged this on Bag Lady Boutique.

  2. I note a small but significant difference. Voting is a fundamental Constitutional right, and abridging it requires a showing if a compelling justification and narrowly tailored means — which proponents of tougher voter I’D laws have so far failed to demonstrate. Having your book signed by the author, by contrast, is not a right, fundamental or otherwise, but a courtesy extended by the author. That person is free, therefore, to attach virtually any condition she wishes. No hypocrisy here.

    Dear Amused:

    I am amused by your own hypocrisy about having to submit a Photo ID willingly “as a courtesy” versus submitting Photo ID for the IDENTIFICATION of the voter as a “compelling justification” is interpreted as a tough voter ID law.

    You need a photo ID to apply for SSI, food stamps, a passport, cash a check, buy liquor, open a checking account, going to a Dr., etc. Do those submitting Photo ID for the previous examples viewed as “willingly” or “Compelling”?

    So you claim that “tough” voter ID laws (as you claim) to VERIFY the voter is a problem?
    I suppose YOU also think that purging the voter rolls, like Florida is doing of DEAD voters and voters no longer living within Florida is oppressive too.

    Am I to assume you read the information at the link at the end of the post? Or are you just a blog sitter protecting the Obama hypocrisy?



  3. Good answer to an ignorant individual, so spellbound by Obama lies, so well concealed in oratory, that only those willing to take time to check the facts recognize the lies; you certainly won’t find truth at CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, NPR, NPB or New York Times.
