“Obama vs. Voter ID”

For years, President Obama and black civil rights leaders have been telling the nation that voter ID laws are being pushed by racist Republicans who want to disenfranchise blacks. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act was passed in to law nearly five decades ago,”   Wall Street Journal.

This assertion despite the fact that photo ID reform was a recommendation of the Commission on Federal Election Reform led by former President Jimmy Carter and former Secretary of State James Baker and other leading professionals in electoral reform.  According to our President, the idea of uniform photo ID laws across the country is the now biggest threats to the enfranchise that was hatched by a Presidential Commission designed to resolve the issues arising from the 2000 Presidential Election.  Obama sides with Alfonso Sharpton and ignores the reasonable recommendations of the professionals. 
Who is the demagogue and the reactionary on voter ID?
