BYU Democrats have lost my respect

OK, I understand that the BYU Democrats are a pretty diverse group. However, they should be all about helping Democrats, not Republicans.

However, I just got the following as part of the email they sent out to their group:

Dear BYU Romney Supporters,

As you may have heard, the Romney Campaign has opened an office here in Provo. In order to maintain the lead that Governor Romney has in Iowa and New Hampshire, supporters here in Utah are volunteering to make calls back to those key states to help voters understand where Governor Romney stands on key issues.

These advocacy calls will have a direct impact on the upcoming primaries and caucuses (Iowa; Jan. 3, New Hampshire; Jan. 7).

The office is located at 746 E. 820 N. just south of the BYU campus (right by J-Dawgs and Thai Ruby). The office is open from 10am to 8pm on weekdays and from 10-3 on Saturdays.

Every Tuesday and Thursday evening at 7:00, starting tomorrow, there will be a standing orientation meeting to help volunteers better understand the primary process, and why this office here in Provo is so important. Tomorrow evening at 6:00 will be the grand opening of the call center featuring a Webcast with an update on the campaign, an explanation of the call center, and a chance to hear from the Mitt Romney and his family. All are welcome.

This is the chance you have been looking for…your chance to dedicate a couple of hours a week to an incredible cause…your chance to help Mitt Romney become the next President of the United States.

Mitt needs your help! Please reply to this email or and let me know when you are able to come in, or that you are willing to gather some friends and come to the Tuesday or Thursday orientation meetings.

I mean, really? Let's just reinforce the thought that if you're LDS you must be supporting Mitt.

Besides, if members of BYUDems are interested in supporting Mitt, it's not like the BYU Democrats are going to be their only source for the information. I personally have been invited by a half-dozen people on Facebook to tonight's event.

The BYUI Dems were touting Gov. Romney on their blog too. Back when they were actually posting anyway.

Further proof that smart kids don't go to BYU.

You can have your football win. I'd rather have some brains than a football team anyway.

Too bad the U doesn't have either.
