>>> some of the republican officials who have been rewriting voter eligibility laws to include i.d. requirements that are designed to exclude legally eligible voters have been very plain in what they are trying to do.
>> voter i.d., which is going to allow governor romney to win the state of pennsylvania , done.
>> in both florida and colorado, searches by state republicans have found the number of illegal voters to be less than 1/10 of 1%. and that's what republican say it is, so it's actually probably lower than that. but the best case republicans can make is less than 1/10 of 1%. that's the best they can come up with. faced with that evidence, colorado's secretary of state says quote we have real vulnerabilities in the system. by vulnerabilities what they obviously mean are voters inclined to vote for president obama . republicans think that one easy way of targeting those voters is by aiming their voter suppression laws at black and latino voters who poll overwhelmingly in support of president obama . the most reliable republican voter is of course the white male voter. mitt romney leads president obama with white males 58 to 34 in the latest numbers from gallup. indeed if you listen to the romney campaign long enough, it sounds like it is targeted exclusively to white males who not so long ago were the only people allowed to vote in this country. raising his voice against the republican voter suppression movement is, of all people, rupert murdoch . that's right. staunch republican rupert murdoch who wants every republican to win every election is paying for the latest attack on mitt romney and republican voter suppression laws. that's right, the same rupert murdoch who pays bill o 'reilly's salary and keeps sean hannity spewing hatred of the president every night is now paying for an attack on mitt romney . rupert murdoch is being forced to pay for the latest attack on mitt romney and republican voter suppression laws by someone who has made much more money for rupert murdoch than bill o 'reilly and sean hannity ever could. in fact this person has made more money for rupert murdoch than anyone else. so rupert murdoch let's this guy do and say whatever he want to do or say. rupert murdoch 's biggest money maker is of course homer simpson . and even homer simpson can figure out that republican voter suppression laws are not meant to stop white guys like homer.
>> oh, man. not another election. why do we have to choose our leaders? isn't that what we have the supreme court for?
>> if you're going to vote, we'll need some photo i.d.
>> but i've lived here all my life.
>> stopping all americans from voting is the protection of americans.
>> i'm a 40-year-old white guy who didn't go to college and gets his news from monitors at gas stations .
>> in you go.
>> barack obama , i don't know. i already got one wife telling me to eat healthy. mitt romney ? i hear he wears magic under pants. i expect the leader of the free world to go commando. plus his horse totally choked at the olympics. on the other hand he did invent obama care.
>> thank you, you have voted for mitt romney . the government paid him taxes for five
