  •  Voter Suppression was part of their campaign (6+ / 0-)

    strategy in 2008 too.

    Back then the GOPers tried to pass new laws just before vote time, that would have disenfranchised newly dispossessed homeowners. This happened in several states.

    For all these assholes claim that they "think" that all this is Obama's Fault, they sure were scrambling to cover the GOP's ass after Bush Jr's economic implosion of the US with the shattering of the housing bubble.

      to disenfranchise voters...in Texas!  Texas used lists from Florida (or was it the other way around?) to find similar names and claim they were ineligible to vote.

      Ya gotta watch 'em every time.
