ID needed for White House tour - But not for voting

Photo ID required for re-opened White House tours, but Obama still opposes ID to vote

America rejoiced when the White House announced it would re-open for tours after cuts to funding from sequestration. But in a blatant display of irony, visitors to President Barack Obama’s home must show a government-issued photo ID to enter, but not to vote.

Tours of the White House resumed after a seven month hiatus, with the first official tour given to tourists yesterday. But for visitors looking to head inside 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., they must show valid, government-issued photo ID.

“All guests 18 years of age or older will be required to present a valid, government-issued photo identification … . All foreign nationals must present their passport,” it states on the White House’s “Tours and Events” page.

This criteria is particularly ironic given the fact that the man living inside the White House adamantly opposes voters showing photo ID before heading the the polls.

Democrats say you are a Racist
Leftist US Democrats call you an evil "racist" for wanting a voter to show a
simple ID card to vote.  Never mind that nations all over the world also ask for
ID in order to keep elections honest.
