President shows ID to vote early in Illinois

The president stopped by a Chicago polling place this afternoon to cast his early ballot. CNN reports that before leaving, the president expressed his hope that his example would encourage others to vote early as well. “For all of you who have not yet early voted,” Obama said, “I just wanted you to see how efficient a process this was” — even the part where you show ID.

The president did his best impression of the poll worker checking his ID — or is this some new form of Eastwooding?

I wonder if Obama considered using one of the birth certificate coffee mugs for the voter ID thing.

Isn’t anyone willing to claim voter suppression?

@bretbaier did you see that Obama had to show his ID to vote? Isn’t his campaign against voter ID?

@markknoller I thought he was AGAINST showing ID 4 voting? Obama = HYPOCRITE

@markknoller the irony!!! Everyone knows asking for id to vote is racist

Voter ID laws = voter suppression and racism and yet our president used his id to vote today…I’m confused!
