T-Party Apologizes for Incessant $$$ Solicitations

The T-Party seems to be admitting that the battle in Wisconsin might be lost.  They have been sending daily e-mails begging for money for ad buys, but many participants are chafing at the number of e-mails rather than sending more money.  Here's what they said in a letter to members today.

As the Executive Director of The Campaign to Defeat Barack Obama, I am writing to tell let you know that I am very sorry for the heavy volume of emails we have sent the past few days.  We even sent an email with the word "loses" spelled incorrectly.  (We wrote "losses" - which was not the correct word we were seeking to use).

I apologize for the inconvenience I know this heavy rate of emails can be - but I want you to understand what we're up against right now in Wisconsin.
We have only a few days to act to ensure that fiscal sanity wins, and ensure that Barack Obama, the labor union bosses, Michael Moore and Jesse Jackson lose.

Apparently, they believe that stripping unionized worker rights will help them to defeat Barack Obama. 

They also believe that taking away the right to vote from college students will help to defeat Obama.  Here's what Speaker of the New Hampshire House O'Brien had to say about students' voting rights, as reported in the WaPost:

Average taxpayers in college towns, he said, are having their votes "diluted or entirely canceled by those of a huge, largely monolithic demographic group . . . composed of people with a dearth of experience and a plethora of the easy self-confidence that only ignorance and inexperience can produce." 

Their "youthful idealism," he added, "is focused on remaking the world, with themselves in charge, of course, rather than with the mundane humdrum of local government."

So the purpose of the Republican pushes to limit voting opportunities and kill unions is all part of an organized strategy to remove voters from the roles or deny them votes on Election Day 2012, by changing and tightening the rules regarding the votes of people who would be most likely to vote for Obama.  If they are successful in this effort, they might defeat Obama by keeping his voters out of the voting booths.
